If I remember right, Satellite racer said the AGE of Aquarius. Aquarius is normally January 20th through February 18th.
So, according to the hint, we should expect the channels anywhere in that time period.


Correct!!! :D

Whatever day the new channels start to arrive is fine by me. I am patient, I have been and will continue to be. It's obvious the new channel additions are being added when the new price increases take effect, seems to be a good strategy on Directv's part. But hey, adding the channels sooner is better than later.

Actually, I said Aquarius but nothing about the beginning of it.


No but the beginning of the period that is known as Aquarius is a known fact.

Lets ask a different question.... How many channels will launch next week? Revealing that can't really hurt anything, right?

PM with more info is of course ok ;)

I fixed your mistakes on this one. Apparently you haven't heard of Robin Meade.


I have heard of her. But a pretty girl is only half if it. If she doesn't have anything good to say, I'll just switch to a hot chick who does have something I'd like to hear

Is anyone else that subscribes to Starz/Encore Package seeing this line item under Recent Activity? I didn't add/remove anything nor did I make any changes.

Perhaps it has something to do with the preparation/authorization for Encore Action HD?

Only now because all but about 13 hours or so of programming I now get in HD that I watch. BBCA was a very good add for me but at the same time, I watched doctor who in HD by other means.

I'm just very satisfied for some time now. So the game of what is coming next is more fun for me.

It's difficult to parse your post, but I guess you're not too enthused with the new additions?

Perhaps you'd be happier with DISH. With the upcoming 8 new HD channels I'd say DirecTV is having a good year already and it's only January.

Agreed. I was a Dish customer (briefly) many years ago and I would never go back. Customer service was terrible to say the least. Directv may have been behind as far as basic HD is concerned, but last year and so far this year, their additions have been great. Also, remember SR mentioned that more HD will follow after these 8 additions.

It's nothing, rather an authorization code to prepare for the Encore HD creation.
