More evidence that DirecTV runs the show right now. PAC-12 is getting a bit more desperate.


DirecTV can bully as they can say Want to get Pac-12 in to Most of the sports bars then take our deal.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

I actually had to Google "Pac-12" to figure out what the fuss is. Shrug. On the other hand, ION HD will be nice to have, especially if they'll do another rerun of The Wonder Years.

New HD channels don't always start exactly at 6 a.m.

But, they're up now. :)

Since it costs 1.66¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 3.32¢ worth.  That 3.32¢ is my own and not the 3.32¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

DIY-HD is one of the last national channels on my wish list. Now if we could get H2 and the rest of the Encore channels I'd be a happy camper. :D

Huge Wonder Years fan here - but was it recorded using film? If not, it can't be transferred to HD, can it?
Re the 2 new channels, not a huge fan of either, but I'm happy they keep on coming!

Try a reset. DIY should be included in Choice Extra and above.

ION East is in HD, but I think I confirmed what I already suspected. My local ION is indeed a retransmission of my local station and not a remap of 305. Channel 47 (ION) is the only local station that is not HD on DirecTV. I am mising out on the infomercials that are not broadcast on the national ION East feed. I will have to put a roter on my antenna to pick up Channel 47 OTA so I can get those informarcials in glorious HD. Channel 47 is the only one of my local station whose transmitter is off axis for a stationary antenna.

Just more of the same crap that D* started pulling with Viacom - I.e. their fake calls for a la carte to please the small number of people.

In my mind - Larry Scott is deadly accurate. The deal was good enough for everyone else except Directv. Why? I call shennanigans.

Checked out ION and DIY, PQ is fine. But what's on ION that makes it attractive? Looks like lots of paid advertising and reruns of old shows. But to be honest, I didn't look very far.

Glad to see these two come on, and I know the DIY fans are very happy.

Now I'd like to see Reelz-HD and Epix HD come along soon.

As to Pac-12, meh. I've no dog in that particular hunt! :)

Have noticed that that both IONEHD and ion e show up in my guide even though I have chosen to "Hide SD Duplicates", probably because of the difference of spelling/capitalization.

Which deal? The one he claimed was identical, the one he claimed was fundamentally similar, or some secret one we know nothing about?

Are you sure about that?.. Seems like PAC12 is digging in the heels as well. Larry Scott's remarks were a reply to what Directv was saying.

same thing.... Are we really 2nd guessing which words he uses.. If 4 out of 5 carriers are picking up PAC12, makes you think... Directv says that don't want to charge everyone for channels they don't want, but last time I checked I didn't agree to the BIG10, nor Viacom etc... This is just rhetoric.

Does it really mattr? They got a deal done with the other large players. I think it's safe to assume they are similar. The one company that they haven't worked it out with yet is the one company that finds it self again and again publically fighting with a partner in an unprofessional manner - Directv. They continue to discount the value of their partners product (while doing nothing to meaningfully guage the interest of its user base) all while claiming to be "looking out for their customers" like they are some sort of modern day corporate robin hood.

they use this same "this content is of no value / interest to our customers" for every contract issue regardless of whether its A contract renewal or a new channel agreement. So if directv is telling me publicslly that nearly everyone they work with is providing no value - why am I doing business with directv if they don't even believe in their own product? (rhetorical question).

It doesn't matter whether it's PAC 12, Viacom, Fox, g4, Vs or whoever. It's the SSDD.

Yep. Just like the dropping of GOLTV for HD bandwith room, I don't expect any sports channels to be added before the next satellite is working. I bet we only see Basic HD and movie channels in HD. DIY and ION HD launching this morning are proof of that. If I remember right they already have an agreement for the 3 movieplex stations in HD when and if they decide to put them up.

same thing.... Are we really 2nd guessing which words he uses.. If 4 out of 5 carriers are picking up PAC12, makes you think...
