They seem to be having a little problem fine tuning the HD for the Equador - Chile game. Kind of fuzzy.

Posted Image You can't be a leader in sports TV without it.


Consider what they show does not constitute a sport, that channel has nothing to do with being the leader in sports.

maybe because nothing of merit is on it? not dogging it (please correct me if I'm wrong) but really guys does this channel have any exclusive anythings that are solely theirs ? You'd of thought some Olympic stuff taped would of been on it...


Universal Sports has each stage of the Giro d'Italia and the Vuelta a Espana cycling races. The only network carrying them in the U.S., so yes, Universal Sports in HD would be great. The Vuelta starts Saturday :)

So they added Al Jazeera's sport channel now when will we get Al Jazeera's new channel? Might as well go all the way.

Personally, I would definitely prefer the Al Jazeera English news channel to another sport channel. Al Jazeera news in English is excellent and would be a great addition to Directv. The only thing comparable to it currently is the BBC news block on BBCA but it is unfortunately only aired in the early morning. :(

And speaking of BBCA.....their program schedule for the next weeks certainly lacks much variety unless one is a Doctor Who, Star Trek TNG, Gordon Ramsey or Top Gear fan. Those programs are fine but why is there nothing else scheduled? I was originally a BBCA viewer but gave up on them when the video quality became so poor. I didn't realize that their range of programming had become so limited. The BBC TV archives are huge, so why is so little of it being utilized for BBCA???

Well, now that they've finally brought BBC-A and NatGeo Wild in HD to DirecTV, I can officially stop complaining about channel selection. They have everything I watch with any regularity at all in HD. Sure, there are some outliers I currently watch only rarely that I would like to see in HD, but then I'd like every channel to be in HD. But, as Stephen Wright says, "You can't have everything... Where would you put it?"

I hope DirecTV continues to add more and more HD as soon as they possibly can in order to please all of you out there that are still missing channels in HD that you consider vital. For now, I'm a pretty happy camper. Thanks, DirecTV!

I am pretty sure you will have another chance Aug 31st thru Sept1 as BBCAHD has a Who marathon for both days with specials. Sept 1st is supposed to be the debut of Series
7 here in the states...the only sticking point is that it's Labor Day weekend and BBCA has always waited the following week for ratings since people will be out and about that weekend.
Buuuuuut.. there ARE empty spaces for the 8pm thru11pm time slots for that night.So it looks like they are keeping those time slots open until BBCA and BBC can find a date...so heres hoping! :D


they also run a top gear marathon that weekend.
