Please use this thread to discuss your feelings about upcoming national HD channels.

This thread will not be as tightly moderated as the rest of the site, but here's the tradeoff...in exchange for being able to rant a bit more, you can be assured that absolutely no one at DIRECTV will be using this thread for reference.

You can ask for all the new HD you want, but DIRECTV's marketing department knows that the 100-150 contributors to this thread are only a small part of the nearly 20,000,000 total subscribers.

*Please remember that all forum rules are still in effect.
*Please do not "bump" this thread.
*Other threads that do nothing but anticipate HD channels for which there is no information will be closed.
*This is not a DIRECTV vs. Dish thread, there are other threads for that.

If you have any questions as to what belongs in this thread or an individual channel thread please read the latest DIRECTV Programming Forum Rules (Link).

Since it costs 1.66¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 3.32¢ worth.  That 3.32¢ is my own and not the 3.32¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

A vote for the non-HD Encore channels:

West
Love
Westerns
Suspense
Drama

Flix, Sundance and NASA would be nice ... don't want any of those on regular basis tho.

After getting something like 22 HD channels in last year, the list of remaining non-HD channels I'd *want* to see in HD is shrinking rapidly.
HR34-700 --> HDMI --> Sony KDL-46EX501
HR24-500 --> HDMI --> Sony KDL-32EX401
HR24-500 --> HDMI --> Samsung LN19A450C1D (only 1 tuner active)

I believe Encore Drama is the only other one that has a HD feed for now.

Wheres Bloomberg at?

Still wondering where GSN HD is, partially owned by D*. :confused:

Still want
FMC
GSN
HUB
Military Channel
Outdoor Channel
Pac 12 Network
Reelz Channel
Sportsman Channel
Sundance Channel
TV Guide Channel
And every channel ;)

Theres really not much left.

Next year should be a good year for D* after D14 is launched. :)

BTW, with the exceptions of the additions today, didn't SR say we wouldn't see more new HD until Q3?

Wonder why FSSD kept a "-1" channel? All the other full-time RSN channels have the usual SD/HD duplicate numbering scheme.

Noticed that too;

They haven't updated the former non-full time HD channel guide label for it yet. And until they do "Hide SD Duplicates" isn't going to work for it in CIG.

I'll have to do that too. I see both channels in the guide. I remember this happened with the last HD release too where the SD channels did not get hidden.

Demand means you will leave for another provider if they do not meet that demand.

Who has it?

Great. I can imagine a famous red head TV housewife begging her "fat" ladies shoe salesman husband that "scored 4 touchdowns in one game" for Polk High to upgrade to DirecTV and buying a HD set for her to watch Oprah Winfrey Network in HD.

I don't know how many more linear HDs will get added by DirecTV leading up to December 31, 2013. With a willingess to challenge myself, I would guess, if we were to receive up to ten [10], the following have potential.…

Basic Cable
235 Style Network HD
238 Reelz Channel HD
240 Home Shopping Network HD
251 Oxygen HD
260 We TV HD
275 QVC HD
294 The Hub HD
295 PBS Kids Sprout HD
328 TV One HD
339 Fuse HD



I am aware that DirecTV and Starz Entertainment LLC signed a contract, a year ago this month, to expand the Starz/Encore programming lineup. This too must be considered. (This keeps in mind MoviePlex is not yet available in linear high definition.)

Premium Movies
5xx IndiePlex HD
5xx RetroPlex HD



None of this is considering, or deliberately disregarding, the potential additions of any regional and national sports that are not even carried at all: Comcast SportsNet Houston, Comcast SportsNet Northwest, and the long-desired Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia. Add to this Pac-12 Network.
