PAX......that's a good one. Although there is some mildly entertaining stuff, on ION, I think I liked some of their subchannels better.

No problems whatsoever here. I see contextweb.com appear for a SPLIT second, and it moves on. Just tried refreshing about 15 times, no problems. That said, there were some problems yesterday:

Contextweb is hosted on GoDaddy.com and they were brought down yesterday. (Some people say it was a hack/DDOS, they themselves say it is a "technical issue") This is probably the root cause of your problem. Your ISP might have a poorly configured DNS that is slow in updating its records, and not redirecting properly to hosts that were down yesterday.
[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.

As I said, probably a slow-updating DNS server. Probably threw a lot of records out yesterday when a lot of hosts failed to resolve, and is slow to add them back. The DNS structure of the internet is quite vulnerable.

I called one guy here (at my job) an idiot, said its not loading because you're on a MAC.. I'm like what level of tech support do you work...or are you just reception?

Really, really fed up with Time Warner here and looking to make a move. Problem is D* still lacks many of the HD channels I want. Any ideas on networks like Cooking, Headline News, G4, DIY, LMN & Oxygen (WAF Required), Reelz, & TVLand. For being the self proclaimed "HD Leader" they sure are missing a ton of basic HD channels. The HD selection is really the only thing keeping me with Time Warner. The equipment and new guide system is garbage. I want to make the move even though I'd need to add an OTA setup, but there are a few core channels they just don't carry among many more that I can pass up. I'm going by the website print list, so if they've added any recently, please advise.
BAN the FCC!

This is the rumor/wishlist/debate/mudslinging discussion thread.

For "just the facts" about Directv HD additions you might want to check out
Sixto's excellent thread. He keeps the first post in that thread updated with notices of all new HD channel additions.

About half-way down the first post in Sixto's National HD Listing thread you'll see a table showing additions by date. The most recent HD additions were BBCA-HD, NatGeoWild-Hd, DisneyJr-HD and beIN Sports Hd on 8/15.

Or does it mean "Strike Up The Band?"

For another upcoming HD channel launch like ION East or perhaps "launches" of that one to live along with others in test?
