I would say that sounds logical, or that DirecTV just came to a deal with another channel and while it won't be on tomorrow, it will be on soon, maybe giving us tru and another one or two channels.

OR maybe my totally false rumor that has no substantial information behind it about Disney Junior launching in HD is correct.

I want TCM in HD.

I have also heard totally unconfirmed possibly completly falisfied rumors that Disney Junior would launch in HD on Directv when it replaces SoapNet since Directv carries all the other Disney owned simulcast HD channels.

Well since it was after this message.........

Perhaps it was implying that we can do without BBC America (and others), as all we need is love. :D

Perhaps...

Good for those that want it I guess.

If so, hopefully, there will be more than just Disney Jr. and TruTV coming... :rolleyes:

I've always loved this emoticon and thought it was a kick butt joy band playing versus sad/crying violin. It looks like an electric guitar, drum set and a cello to me. No violins at all.

In any case we all love SR's clues and poo-bahs.

Hah.....on closer look the 3rd instrument has got to be a stand up bass. No sad music coming out of that trio. I'm starting to feel the hope for a new National HD light up in the near future. May it be TCM HD or BBC HD.

Yeah... it's a stand up bass. Hmm... :scratch:

Randy Jackson played bass. He refers to people as "dawg." Perhaps it's National Geographic Wild. :P

I was actually checking out something about Disney Junior, and noticed that Wikipedia is saying DirecTV (along with AT&T U-verse and Verizon FIOS) will carry it at launch. Granted, Wikipedia isn't the most reliable source of information, but apparently somebody else has heard the rumor as well...

While I actually enjoy some programming on DisneyXD, Cartoon Network, and even the nostalgia of Boomerang, I'm disappointed if this is the case, but good news for those who want it. :(

Ohmygod TRIO is coming back & in HD!
Brilliant But Cancelled! Crazy Australian cop shows! Old David Letterman reruns!

On a more serious note, I believe most carriage contracts have a clause allowing an out if the programming for that channel changes significantly. So since Disney is turning SoapNet into DisneyJR, Directv and Disney probably renegotiated this portion of their contract. If so, they may have agreed to launch it in HD.
