You bet it is!

I have been a DirecTV subscriber since 2005.

A few channels I'd still like to see DirecTV add are:
CSPAN3, the PAC-12 Network(s), BBC World and more international news channels.

Well it helps keep our costs down, and doesn't take much bandwidth.

Normally I'd be skeptical as there was no test, but it's probably not a channel that really needs it.

This is why I appreciate being able to customize "Favorite Channels" … so I can eliminate the advertising filler.

Remember that Sixto doesn't scan the SD satellites for new channels. He only scans D10/11/12 for HD stuff.
[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 did forget that. To many of us, those are the only channels that matter anyway.

Isn't it clever how DirecTV "sprinkles" in these worthless shopping channels among the channels everyone watches?

Most of the DirecTV channels are now grouped by topic (the news channels are all close to one another, the religious channels are also grouped together, etc.) But those shopping channels are scattered all over the place, some appearing in TWO places-the channels above the locals but below 100 AND their usual annoying place MIXED IN with the good channels.

Thank goodness for FAVORITES lists. Too bad there are only two lists available unlike with previous non-DirecTV-branded boxes that often allowed four or even more favorites lists.
