Meh. Congratulations to those who wanted it!


You don't seem to be pleased with this new HD.

DIY HD is great! One of the channels I watch in SD, getting it in HD will be wonderful.

DIY is the first addition in 2012 that I can get excited about. Now, all I really want is Universal Sports and Cooking Channel.

Do It Yourself Network in HD without Cooking Channel in HD…

That's like E! Entertainment Television in HD without Style Network in HD.

Come on, DirecTV! You know you're capable of doing better.

Yeah CBS is disgruntled about the DISH Hopper commercial skip option. I don't watch commercials on DirecTV either, I record almost everything I watch.

They can complain all they want though, they can't really pull their programming from Dish. They can only pull the locals they actually own themselves, and only after the contract is up.

High profile retrans negotiations happen every year. It's nothing new. I'm just happy to be with the satellite provider that is actually successful in dealing with them.

Comparing CBS/Dish to CBS/DirecTV is not really a good idea. CBS and Dish are suing each other right now. No bad blood between CBS and DirecTV. And CBS is NOT Viacom. Things could go sour but there is no indication that they will.

DIYHD was the #4 channel in the poll, requested by one-third of everyone who voted.

The only missing now from the top-8 is H2 and IFC.


Nice! I have no complaints at this point (not like I was complaining about no DIY). Everything added from here on out is just icing on the cake for me.

They're dropping Gol TV today as well. Maybe DIY took over their slot. Gol only had the German Bundesliga rights and the US Open Cup final left over since beIN sport swooped up all the other rights they had.
