The channel is in HD or DirecTV is broadcasting it in HD?

Both. Nat Geo Wild was launched nationally in HD (March 29, 2010). DirecTV carried the SD version soon after launch (June 30, 2010) and added the HD feed, as noted, this year.

If My Little Pony is your thing, more power to ya! :D

it's got a pretty big adult fanbase actually (wikipedia article).

This has got to be the scariest exchange I've read on this board in long time.

With Halloween coming up, I may find a freak show to attend, just so I can go as My Little Pony.

Me thinks D* is giving us a sneak peek at our next Festivus presents.

It all depends on what they are doing with D10.

When was the last time there was a significant HD channel release late in the 4th quarter?

Sixto keeps a comprehensive list of channel changes here. The last Q4 HD addition was SonyHD back in October 2010, but overall, my take on the list is that Q4 is usually fairly quiet.

Or these channels getting Hi Definition Video On Demand is a way to give us Hi Definition without using bandwidth till d14, and there are other channels that will come, like the encore ones we don't even have yet at all.

No need to wait til D14. They've been moving around channels to make space for new HD all month. Ask Sixto.


I know, I am suggesting they may pick up new channels they have the rights to but don't carry at all first before by upgrade current channels to Hi Definition.

Rights to Epix were included in the recent deal Directv signed with Viacom. The way I understand it, Directv has the rights to Epix at a set price for the next year if they choose to add the service, however it was Directv's call as to if/when to offer Epix.

From the press releases, it sounded as if Directv had no real interest in Epix, but had no objection to having the option in the contract. It was more of a face-saving effort on Viacom's part so say, "yeah, Epix was part of the Directv deal."

That probably doesn't answer your question, but then the only source that truly can is inside Directv.

Yeah, I have a feeling the only way DirecTV would consider adding it was as a separate tier in its own, and I'll bet the option contract is not set up that way, so they won't be adding it. But who knows.

Yeah, but rumor was Viacom wanted a flat rate, and Direct won't ever do that.

Wasn't rumor. But I think that went away. But no one knows what the option is. Never stated publicly. Assume it is some set price if they want to put it on.

I think it's been there before... either way the HD content is VERY good news! :)

I just wish it was "XIII" or "Bomb Girls"... :(

Any minimal interest I had in G4 in HD on DirecTV (or even in SD) went away with the news of Attack of the Show and X-Play going the way of the Dodo.

By this time next year, G4 might not even exist anymore as we know it.

All I see is 1 episode of Bomb Girls.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Yes, Reelz has an HD channel on C Band in HD. It looks very good. Too bad that Directv wouldn't add this channel in HD.

No matter how good the PQ is, Reelz still hacks movies. I would never watch it unless they quit editing the movies.
