No but the beginning of the period that is known as Aquarius is a known fact. Correct, though I never said beginning, middle, or end, simply posted the Aquarius sign. :)

Lets ask a different question.... How many channels will launch next week? Revealing that can't really hurt anything, right? Depends on testing, how things shake out. If all goes well, there will be multiple channels that launch by this Friday, but not all of them. Others, if all goes well, would follow very soon after.

PM with more info is of course ok ;)

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

This is cool..to actually know whats coming is very cool..rather then decoder ringing certain messages.. Personally, when and whatever debuts 1st I dont care about...just to know the bracket of channels that are coming is indeed :) very nice..nice to know there is a boatload coming rather than just inane innuendo..

In all fairness, the "inane innuendo" is always before channels are in test so it is more advanced knowledge and is, therefore, less public.

SR can admit to these because they are in test. Yet, he is still putting on caveats.

It's not as much fun. Of course, I've been one of those people who put forth some hints when I've had info I wasn't supposed to publicize.

Would you rather when some of us know something but can't say anything outright we say nothing?

(Oh. And Sixto did play a little game before listing the channels. Kind if like Wheel of Fortune.)

Too bad DirecTV's not adding a fish tank channel.

Then we'd be in the age of aquariums.

Sometimes I miss that channel. It was relaxing and a good demo channel back in the day that one did not have a hundred plus other channels to look at.

Wasn't a yes or no question.

Officially or technically? The "Yes" answer may be the most accurate. :lol:

Well since officially and technically Friday starts at 12:00 AM on the international date line, we should have it by then right?


By Friday.

By Friday means any day before Friday. What I want to know is which specific day (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday are the only possible answers, pick one only).


Yes, "by Friday" means any day before Friday...it also includes Friday. Always has.
