And must be still sleeping on ION East HD because it still shows as in test.


Yep. Right now, ION is the only predicted channel I'm not getting in HD. BeIN Sports seems like it won't go live live for another 12 hours, but 620 is counting down the seconds.

As I posted before, upconverted, 720p, and 1080i beats 480i anytime.


Don't forget added bandwidth. That can improve picture quality even more than up conversion.

Must be the same person who does CE software.

They were just running on DirecTV time ™ folks.

As an added bonus, GolTV moved to 627, so its not lost.

Can somebody please post the channel numbers for the new HD channels? It would make it easier to add them back into my favorites.

I still want
DIY
GSN (60% owned by D*)
H2
Outdoor channel

And anything else they can give us.

And I was right, Santa did come last night. :D

I'm thinking the next three basic-cable HD will be:

253 Lifetime Movie Network HD
271 H2 HD
304 TV Land HD


If that can be raised to five:

230 DIY Network HD
232 Cooking Channel HD



Now that's outside of the sports necessities (addition and carriage) which would include brand-new programming (which include today's beIN Sport) in HD.

By the way: The picture quality on each of today's (thus far) additions looks great!

Ion did not show up on the iPhone or iPad app as of yesterday, so it was not coming on today. Maybe they have more work to do with the local maps.

Funny, I don't get 620 and I have Premier. I'm not a soccer guy but would I need one of the soccer packages to get it?
