We are no longer asking for Fox Movie Channel, we are demanding it! :mad:

Stop with all of the excuses, DirecTV!


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

Who has it?
LR: HR34-700, H24-200, Fios DVR, BD350 Blu Ray, Roku Netflix Player, Chromecast, Sony 65w850 TV

OWNHD and FSSDHD "live", with Bloomberg HD probably next.

The HD Channel List thread is updated when any HD change is noticed during the daily check:

Post #1 of the HD Channel List thread has the totals, listing, and dates of when each HD channel was added:

The Notification thread is updated when something significant happens with a satellite or HD:

You can subscribe to one or both, with both threads being locked.

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.
:lol:

Where's Bloomburg HD? Thought that was coming as well.

I want fuse, we, style, oxygen, sprout, the hub, FXM, Reelz, ovation, mtv2, swrv, nick jr, GSN, gmc, and NASA in HD.

Then in mpeg4 sd: MTV hits, MTV jamz, MTV-U, youtoo social TV, antenna TV, me TV, CMT Pure.


I think MTV-U is just for universities

Enjoying AT 250 HBO,

Could Okra be paying for HD carriage? Viewership can't justify it.

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.

Jen, you could spell her name right. ;)



I don't understand how people (not necessarily you, Jon) can be so mad about a channel addition that they'll be condescending and insulting. Just don't watch it... simple solution.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I think MTV-U is just for universities

It used to be but several years ago Viacom merged VHUno with Tr3s and replaced VHUno's feed with mtvU to make it available to all providers. FiOS and a few others now have it.

I greatly am pleased with DirecTV’s more-aggressive stance toward adding HD channels. Although I still shout to the heavens in hope of viewing CSN Philly, my more-realistic expectations are Military, Military History (when available), Ovation and Sundance.

What do you mean "we". Please speak for yourself (or be more specific with your pronouns); I am not demanding it, I would like it and am patiently waiting until it happens.

I thought FS SD was coming as a full time HD channel? Yet in Sixto's report it says "694 FSSDHD PT" and it is still on a -1? Is the PT an error by DirecTV?
