Plus, if you don't know the answer to a question, save everyone some time and don't respond to the question.


The answer to the question was provided.

Well why have channels been in test for 2 weeks? What's taking so long for them to go live? Either they work or they don't. Piss or get off the pot!


There are these thing called contracts and agreements. They usually include specific dates for execution. Just because Sixto sees something doesn't mean it is actively being tested. At times it can be a placeholder until they are ready for public transmission for various reasons.

No exact date, testing still to be done. Things can change and often do, thus dates aren't announced until the very end. I'm sure you understand.


Otherwise known as...soon. :) Thank you Satelliteracer.

I haven't even told her yet. Damn, maybe I can convince her I'm a big shot that made it all happen. :) Somehow I think she'll know that isn't the case.

People use "soon" way too much on here. Jokingly or seriously, it's really getting old and I'm sick and tired of seeing it.

I'm well aware of what contracts are, I'm related to 4 civil lawyers. Being in testing for over a week is pretty uncommon though.


No it isn't.

I hate to fuel the fire here, but what's with all the crybaby antics by some of the forum posters? This is an ANTICIPATION thread. I don't give a damn about what you think about the definition of "soon." I don't care about why you think channels are being launched or why channels aren't being launched.

The only thing we should be reading about in this thread is people's anticipated HD additions or anticipation of when TEST channels go live. The bickering and squabbling needs to stop. If your panties are in a knot, spare the rest of us the BS and take it to PM.

I liked coming and reading about the HD channels that aren't currently offered and people's guesses on what will be next. Can we get back to that?

Yes, Wednesday used to be the more targeted day of the week, but Thursday seems to have been the latest shift. Those days are not by accident.

Glad to hear about the new HD coming soon. For a minute, Ithought I was in the wrong thread. I found this quote from Mark Twain and thought it might be appropriate. Sorry in advance if it offends anyone.

I wish they'd roll out channels on Saturdays so I wouldn't have to sit at work being envious of those watching the new HD channels. ;)

I have been confused the past 48 hours whether I should be civil or hostile. I always thought it was about the anticipation.
