I just got a flyer in the mail from D*. It says on 7/27, the following HD channels will be added:

5Starmax HD East - Ch. 520
WMax HD East - Ch. 521
@Max HD East - Ch. 523
HBO2HD West - Ch. 505

Not the channels I want, but it will make someone happy.


Reply #5 to all of those
I do, I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future.

It's another HD channel for me as an HBO subscriber. Of course I already have all the programming in HD through the HBO 2 East HD channel, but it may come in handy every so often with a scheduling conflict.

I am thinking this will complete the Max/HBO rollout in HD.... so maybe after 7/27..... MAYBE, just MAYBE we MIGHT see some other channels in HD.

Holding my breath. :grin::grin:
[Disclaimer] The definition of "soon" is based solely on DirecTV's interpretation of the word, and all similarities with dictionary definitions of the word "soon" are purely coincidental and should not be interpreted as a time frame that will come to pass within a reasonable amount of time.

I am the Stig.

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Got a scan?

Seems odd they would announce these a month in advance but not the others they've added this year.

If it's true, I don't get why the HBO2HD WEST. According to Satracer they wouldn't waste transponders with both East/West versions any longer. Anyway, I hope everything is true.

Maybe others received it, but didn't see it. It's just funny saying people use jokingly - Like when one of our friends tells a crazy story, we say, "Pictures or it didn't happen."

I got the flyer with a bill today, which is weird since I am on paperless billing.

Cuz (believe it or not) a lot of people still don't have DVR's.
Wouldn't be the first time SR was wrong either.

I also lived in south Florida and probably got it in the mail today. I will check. It's hard to believe we got the news from a fellow member and not from Satracer or other guys "in the know" .
