Why does Directv keep giving Universal Sport Channel 625 free preview when there is no HD available. If it did come in HD I may think about subscribing?

HD or not, it is the only channel that will have the Giro d'Italia and the Vuelta a Espana. I would prefer to have it in HD, but the SD on DirecTV is better than it was when it was a bit-rate starved subchannel on my local NBC channel.

Ahh, yes, WNCN-3. Last time I checked, the AM21 still had guide data for that on 17-3, even though there was actually no more 17-3.
