Wouldn't the channels in HD VOD be really good guesses for the channels coming? It would make sense... :)

Makes sense to me, but then most of the channels I want are in that group so I'm not impartial.

The first HD channel I want to see added in 2013 is CSN Houston!

I'll be ok with QVC HD, but only if DirecTV charges them a lot of money for it, and not on easy pay.

I'd love to get FMC HD, but I really do expect the HD VoD channels are likely to be at the top of the list of what we actually get priority-wise.
LR(non-CE): HR44, Mits 65C9; Office/FR (CE): HR22-100 + AM21, Mits 60737 + Mits 3DA1 3D adapter. Spare bedroom (non-CE), HR23. Genie WHDVR, wireless networking (yay!)

How many Directv subscribers actually have the equipment necessary to use VOD? I suppose that most participants in this forum do but I am not so sure about the Directv subscriber base at large. That's why I would rather see them use bandwidth for HD channels like LMN, H2 and Reelz before they add more VOD content in HD.

TV based VOD content comes from internet downloads, it has nothing to do with the bandwidth it would take to deliver them as a linear channel via satellite. The VOD content that uses bandwidth from the satellites is the overnight pushed movies you see as guide banners in the 100s and the showroom, in the evening those feeds are shared with the part time RSNs and sports packages.

Forget the lists. I simply want every HD that we don't already get. Then I want the SD only channels to go HD and for D* to get them,too.

Yeah, I don't want much. :hurah:

There's an eight times better chance of hitting one of a list of 24. ;)

H2 is probably the only one I would be majorly bent about.

So you want them to use the bandwidth to have HD versions of all the various shopping networks? DirecTV had better get a lot of money for that. Maybe the can sell the naming rights to DirecTV-14 to QVC :)

I watched Portlandia via IFC on demand. That show was soooo funny! It's a shame IFC is not in HD. I understand if its a bandwidth, uplink equipment or encoder issue, but to not have VOD content at least offered in HD is crummy.

Anyway I think my biggest want is now IFC... At least HD VoD. This Portlandia show was hilarious. One problem I had with the VOD was that the volume was really quiet during the show and once in awhile there was a commercial that would literally BLAST the house out of the water. Normal volume on my TV is about 12 - 14. For Portlandia I had to have it at 24 - 26, so when a commercial came on it was like BAM!

IFC HD please.
