Now that the polling has closed, feel free to continue discussion at the DIRECTV HD Channel Anticipation (Official Q1 2011 Thread). Thank you for all the great participation!

As a follow-up to our DBSTalk February 2010 DirecTV HD Channel Poll, here's the 2011 version!

Legend:

Votes is the total number of votes for a channel (1st through 5th totaled) for the 1461 voters.
Popularity (Pop) is the percentage of people who voted for a channel (Votes/1461).
Cumulative (Cum) is a running percentage of votes from 0% to 100%.
1st through 5th are the individual votes totaled, from 1st desired to 5th desired (in priority order)
Then each person's preference for a channel summarized: Strongly Interested (Strong), Somewhat Interested (Some), No Interest (No)


Final Poll Results (2/25/2011 23:58:32 ET) with 1461 voters:

Poll Background:
  • This is the same survey that select DirecTV subscribers recently participated in, and was shared from someone who took the survey.
  • If you don't see a specific highly-desired HD channel, then maybe DirecTV would like to launch the channel, but didn't feel that it was necessary to include the channel in the survey.
  • Again, this is the exact same DirecTV HD survey, so please let's not debate the content.
Poll Questions:
  • Please enter your DBSTalk User Name to somewhat verify authenticity, and to contact you if there are any questions about your vote.
  • Please select your top-5 choices (in priority order) of HD channels that you desire to be carried by DirecTV.
  • For each HD channel listed, please select your interest level in DirecTV's carriage of the HD Channel:
  • Strongly Interested
  • Somewhat Interested
  • No Interest
Poll Rules:
  • Please only use the form below to vote.
  • You must click on "Submit" (at the bottom of the form) to vote. Only data from the form submission will be used to tabulate the Poll results.
  • Please only vote once. If you do vote more then once (possibly to correct an error), only your last vote will be counted.
  • Please also simply post "I voted" in this thread, so that everyone will get a feel for how the vote is going.
  • When voting for your top desired HD channels, if you vote for the same HD channel more then once then only the first occurrence will be counted, and the other HD channels below (in priority order) will be moved up.
  • When selecting your interest in an HD channel, please be selective between those channels you "strongly" desire versus those channels that you only "somewhat" desire. If there's no interest in a channel, simply vote "no interest".
  • You must enter your official DBSTalk User Name, but all individual votes will be kept confidential. Only summary data will be tabulated and posted in this thread.
  • This thread is for the Poll only, please post all non-Poll comments in another appropriate thread.
  • All non-Poll related posts will be deleted.
Please Note: AMC, FMC, G4, HBO, and Cinemax were not included in the Poll (for reason described above).

Enjoy!

If you don't want to do sub-models at least do the new equipment...I'm just sayin'
Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.
