Thank-you D* for Nat Geo WILD HD and for ID HD (off top of my head).

Cooking Channel HD CALL LETTERS:
SAT RACER or anyone....

This is NOT a complaint. Just wondering why the Call Letters for Cooking Channel HD is ' COOK... ' [period]. {COOKHD}

I noticed that other channels that have Six Letter Call Letter "tags."

Again just wondering. Thanks in advance.
+ D* please add E! HD WITH -- TruTV HD. And...National Geographic WILD HD, WeTV HD, G4 HD, BBC-America HD [Top Gear HD]. Miscellaneous: Maybe DIY HD, Style HD, Cooking Channel HD, Wealth TV HD. + ....OXYGEN HD ("BAD GIRLS CLUB HD"; "THE FACE" HD); --->>OWN HD; WeHD;; ETC., ETC., thanks! }}} MILITARY CHANNEL HD (discoverynetworks).

On a side note, I really wish IONeHD would get HD tags added to their programming...


Your wish has been granted. :)


It only took me about four times contacting Tribune about it... ;)

I am complaining about the lack of HD for Fox Movie Channel, Ovation, and the rest of the Encore Channels. :(


Encore Western is all that's left on my list.


The only HD Encore channels that DTV is missing are Encore Suspense, RetroPlex, and IndiePlex.
The others are not availabe in HD yet.
It would be nice if they would go ahead and add RetroPlex and IndiePlex, I had them when I had Dish Network, and they had some pretty good movies on them.

Is there a feasbile shot at BBC World News becoming added to the lineup of DirecTV? (Be it in SD and/or HD?)

I haven't looked to whether it is getting much carriage by other providers and was figuring it might take another year to become even more established.

I have the feeling The Hub HD will get added by DirecTV this year. Not feeling the same, necessarily, with the brand-new high def for Military Channel. Nor with likewise Discovery Communications brand Oprah Winfrey Network HD.

I'm not really sure. There isn't a big cost involved with this channel, as they don't show any large studio productions that make other channels expensive. It's all news and related documentaries.

Adding an SD channel won't be a big bandwidth hog either.

It's probably one of those channels that is low on the list with the average American that truly believe that Fox, and CNN bring you all the news there is to know, and truly unbiased at that. :D

I watch the PBS news bulletins, and I also think that is what DirecTV is using as one of the reasons not to add it: Look, your local PBS has the same BBC News.

But that is not what it is about.... News changes with every hour that passes.

I would love BBC World, but also CNN International.
[Disclaimer] The definition of "soon" is based solely on DirecTV's interpretation of the word, and all similarities with dictionary definitions of the word "soon" are purely coincidental and should not be interpreted as a time frame that will come to pass within a reasonable amount of time.

I am the Stig.

You may be right. Add bbca to having bbc world news.

As for news changing every hour. Is bbc world news really that reactive? The radio version is more like NPR than CNN or fox in terms of tracking news. (I really don't know.)

Yes, it's a completely different deal. I had it here in Austin on Time Warner for a while. It's as up to the moment as any other service.

It's much like CNN International, only you get the feeling that these people really know what they're talking about.

We want Fox Movie Channel in HD. No more excuses , no more alibis.

When are we going to get FMC in HD? This is ridiculous.
