Has anyone heard anything about local HD? lice Lansing,MI


Topeka, KS, Corpus Christi, TX, Laredo, TX, and Duluth. MN are in testing.

No word on Lansing at this time. We have a separate thread dedicated to locals which should help you keep updated on any progress.

Nobody had anything to say today?


With The CW's new Fall season starting next week, I'll be going on a rant about the lack of CW HD-DNS tomorrow.

I've been warning y'all for a while, so everyone knows it's coming. I may do some additional grumbling in the next couple of weeks as shows... particularly "Arrow" premieres, but then I'll most likely keep quite until next year, so everyone will get a break. :)

My local ION and IONW are still both SD. How is it that you get IONW in HD?

My mistake. IONE is the one in HD. That's the one that's the same as the local ION in San Antonio.

Any idea when their contract ends on Fox Soccer Plus? That's ripe for renegotiation... they're still on the old Setanta monthly fee. It seems most other companies now offer it within their sports packs, instead of the additional premium.

I think FSP will fade away with the advent of the new Fox Sports Cable channels (rebranded Fuel and Speed) that are due to launch anytime now. The smart money would suggest a lot of content from FSP will transfer over.

Subscribed to DirecTV for NFL Sunday Ticket, remained a subscriber for international football.

My only complaint with D* since I've become a sub is the $15 per month extortion - er, I mean subscription - for FS+ in glorious part time HD.

But since I can rationalize almost anything, I think about all the "free" Champions League, Europa League, Super 15 rugby, and Rugby Championship we get, and I've convinced myself all that is part of the 15 bucks! The HD PQ of the rugby is remarkable.

I was "anticipating" the Currie Cup and the ITM Cup rugby competitions this year in HD on 490-1 and 491-1, but, alas, nothing.

Anyone know why?

I also "anticipate" some interesting changes in HD channel carriage should Fox not keep the Barclays Premier League when the US contract for 2013 - 2016 is awarded in the next week or so.

They are re-showing the detective series Luther on BBC America. I noticed that they gave it an hour, which includes 15 minutes of commercials, for a running time of 45 minutes. I then looked at downloads of Luther to see how long the actual running time is, and it is 53 minutes. So they have to cut out 8 full minutes of the story to get it into an hour. This is just program butchery. Taking 8 minutes out of a detective program makes the story line incomprehensible, since too much is missing. I cannot understand how this can be allowed. .


I don't know about Luther and the mystery genre but most BBC hour-long documentaries have an actual running time of 58 to 59 minutes. Thus, when shown in an hour block by a US commercial network such as the Science Channel, substantial elements of the program presumably must be cut to permit insertion of advertisements.

I tend to only watch soccer during the Olympics and World Cup. I'd much prefer additional rugby coverage!

Hell, I'll just settle for some hockey, right now. Something about fall, the leaves turning, the days get shorter and the drop of the hockey puck. Does this mean, no hockey = no fall and winter? :rolleyes:

Yes, massive 100,000 seat stadium, with two original six teams, Leafs vs Red Wings. It'll be awesome, with the Wings being the home team, but the huge Leafs Nation, wanting a piece of the action. Should make for a great game, if they ever get the league going again.

DirecTV's FB account surely has been pushing H2 lately. Foreshadowing, maybe? That'd be nice.

Suposedly, Bettman plans to cancel the Winter Classic in early November, rather than allow it to be used as leverage in negotiations.
