AMC, IFC, TCM, BBCA, and WGBH.

Or if GBH wants to stick their head in the sand, how about shaming them by putting the NH PBS in HD.

Sundance if its even available? But nobody seems to carry it, so I can see if that doesn't happen, but I think of DirecTV as being ahead of the curve. That's a big part of my frustration with their glacial rollout of basic cable HD. Of course it's normal that DirecTV is first in 3d. They are first in most everything. But AMC, IFC, TCM, WE, Life Movies are all in HD on local comcast. Really. It's a sad day when you're looking at comcast to get some channels you can't get with DirecTV.

The remaining Cinemax & HBO channels and the lone Showtime channels Flix & SHo Family
as a premium based subscriber yeah..I want these
I am only basing what is at this precise moment in time in HD and wont unwrap a ball of yarn crying for the Encore channels not beaming in HD yet. Let alone any channel not beaming in HD either.

As a Sports Pack subscriber I want the Fox Soccer Channels..Looking forward to when GOL-TV gets their act together..

then come the basics..in order of my importance
BBC / G4 / Nat Geo Wild / TCM / IFC / AMC / does Sundance exist in HD ?

As for locals in the NYC area..D* please add the ION tv affiliate which does Broadcast in 720p..Ch31 WPXN and CH47 the local Telemundo channel also.

I think it would be good if this list that AlanG did of all available HD channels could be added to the top of this thread:

http://www.dbstalk.c...096#post2508096

Now its way down in post 72 in this thread.

Top 5 Wants

Channels I don't want because...they suck

  • Epix
  • Epix 2


Would be nice to for some of us to acutally "see" the channel in action before we deadpan it, as opposed to the great OAR of Showtime with some of their great movies like uh... "The Spirit".;)

Would love to see Direct get on the ball and add these. Seems clear that Dish is going to stay on the cutting edge with prem. programming instead of Sports. Entire list seems pretty good. Sorry just can't see adding fulltime RSN's in HD. Only time one needs HD is during gametime.

What games? Pro only? What about high school? College? Full time RSNs isn't just for pro games. There's pre/post game shows, weekly/daily coaches shows, etc.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

There are many other exclusive you conveniently left out, like Iron Man, etc.

But I'd love to check out The Love Guru, and it's not being shown on any other channel.
