2010 was the year for Basic HD.
2011 is the year for Premium HD.
2012 is a year where many new RSN's launch.
2013, back to Basic HD again.
There's nothing special
about a given year, let alone what your listing says about 2010 and 2011, and what you figure 2012 and 2013 will be representing. Every
year is a year to maintain relevancy, to remain competitive.
By the time 2013 arrives, and if
DirecTV actually acts by then with adding in HD its inexusably overdue missing basics (which should have been rolled out with D12), then one can also — if one so chooses — spend his/her time reflecting on how much longer competition
has been carrying the likes of: AMC HD
, BBCAM HD
, TCM HD
, HLN HD
, E! HD
, Style HD
, HInt'l HD
, LMN HD
No disrespect to you — it's silly.
