As excited as I'd be over BBCA-HD, I found out earlier today that we lost a beloved family dog yesterday. She was indeed a member of the family... :(

That's three family members in less than 12 months. :(

~Alan


Very Sorry for your loss Alan...:( Been there myself several times and it's not the same afterwards when a beloved one passes away. It's like a part of you goes with them. Hope everyone is doing well.

Running out of channels to complain about not having....

We could always complain about not having enough to complain about! :lol:

For those that aren't current Doctor Who fans, note that there are a bunch of programs of the 'making of..' type about it. Unfortunately they don't show up in any search I've done and have to be found manually.


BBC axed the Confidentials this season because of funding. A lot of fans of the show really don't like them that much by what i see at some of the U.K. DW forums.

I back up Maartena, while you may think that Universal Sports only replays Olympic items, that's not true. They cover many of USA Swimming Grand Prix events, they have great winter sports coverage of skiing and snowboarding, including many international events. I would put US at #3 on my wish list behind The Pac 12 and DIY HD.

Since you are at it, can you also post a list of what IS in HD on DirecTV, but NOT on TWC NY?

And Premiums are also HD, fyi.
[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.

That used to be Planet Green HD, they just renamed/rebranded themselves.

After reviewing santi's list, I basically saw twoish channels I'd want. H2 and PAC 12 for sure. TVLand sorta (only for Betty White, really).

So back to topic - anticipating....

It's clear that DirecTV is back on the "we offer more HD than others" messaging again...so perhaps we'll see another 2,3,4 more HD channels by year end.
