I shouldn't have to PM him, it's a topic of public interest. Plus, if you don't know the answer to a question, save everyone some time and don't respond to the question.
Well why have these 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!
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.
It ain't gonna change. Things happen when they happen.
BTW, you are assuming that the ONLY issue is testing the hardware and that all is working well. Maybe a fourth channel is having problems so we only get three this week. Maybe the contract specifies a "no earlier than" date. Maybe the contract isn't quite done (reference ION HD, which was in test for a long, long time). Maybe while the channels are in test, the people who have to process to make it real are not available or busy with something else.
These have been visited before and you may have forgotten. There are a lot of things that go on. This isn't dumping fries in hot oil and serving them with a cheeseburger.
And, if it weren't for Sixto, you wouldn't even know about those test channels at all.
