that was his response to a comment i made. its nice to know. my problem is he doesn't say when the new hd will be here. it could be next month or sometime next year.
There are only two (national) HD channels now that I REALLY want... one of which I don't really expect anytime soon (though I'm not as skeptical as I used to be), and another which I feel stands a decent chance of making it this month. Those channels are CW HD-DNS and TV Land HD.
TV Land On Demand now has some HD content, so if they offer their original content in HD on there, I'm good until the linear channel comes along.
The CW recently struck a deal with Comcast to offer HD VOD, so my HOPE is that maybe DirecTV will offer the same "soon".
Would I prefer linear channels? Absolutely, but DirecTV's recent addition of HD VOD to TV Land On Demand has somewhat lessened my sense of urgency for the channel.
With this year's additions, and the new VOD developments, I think my main interest will be in seeing my HD-LiL improve (ABC-HD, and CW-HD added when available).
