For those who desire Chiller HD.....you might lobby for a seemingly similar HD channel that is currently being added to several TWC systems...Fearnet HD http://www.fearnet.com/ Has Directv ever considered this one? Apparently several cable companies carry it in SD as a linear channel and as VOD. I don't see anything about HD on their website but TWC has mentioned them in some of their press releases.

Dang, I take 1/2 day away from the thread and the darn thing blows up on me! :)

Three channels I'll watch semi-regularly there now that they will be in HD, and two more I'll probably watch from time to time. At least two channels the wife will be happy to have in HD.

Nice haul.

Given SR’s recent post, a long-standing inability to reach agreement with Comcast, the RSN surcharge and DirecTV’s repeated articulation of concern about programming costs, I hold little hope for a near-term (or, indeed, long-term) addition of CSN Philadelphia. Were that to occur, however, HD networks of principal interest to me would be Military/Military History.

Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

One simple way to reduce the number of pages you have to review to find your last read post is to increate the pagesize to 40... :grin:
