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

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.

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

Who has it?


I haven't checked them all, but Dish has FMC in HD.

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.

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

Stop with all of the excuses, DirecTV!


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?

With the contract renewal 2 years ago with news corp, I doubt they'll add FMC HD, unless D** is surprising us, Or it has nothing to do with contracts but possibly shifting channels around.

There are a few channels that if we had HD simulcasts, I might have SLs set up for them (Reelz, etc.), but as I've stated before, The CW* is the only SD channel with Series Links set up in my household, so outside of the CW DNS feeds being upgraded to HD, I'm not really in any hurry for anything.

Below would be a list of the channels I'd eventually like though.



MOST WANTED (HD duplicates) ADDITIONS

CW HD-DNS
Reelz Channel
The Hub
Fox Movie Channel


EVENTUAL LIKE TO HAVE (HD duplicates)

Logo
Gospel Music Channel
Ovation TV
TV Guide Channel
TVOne
NASA TV
Centric
Fuse


HD EXTRA PACKAGE ADDITION LIKES

FearNet
FUNimation Channel


* I'm still hoping that DirecTV will add my local CW affiliate in HD sometime this year, thereby lowering my interest in the DNS feeds greatly, but I wrote an e-mail to two different people at my local affiliate at the first of the year asking for an updated timetable as to when this year said affiliate plans to go HD, so I can go ahead and put in a request to DirecTV, but so far, I haven't heard back from either of them... :(

Speaking of dash 1 channel numbers, why do we still have them on the other sports packages and some RSN's? Can't they assign the HD channels to the "regular" channel numbers like they do with the full time channels? NFLST does it, why can't they do it with the others?

When ST did it, it had to do with all channels having HD. If the baseball games are not 100% guaranteed to all be HD, they can't do it because hiding SD channels would hide games. Certainly true for NHL where Canadian games are SD.

[*] G4 (SD channel removed from DirecTV lineup on November 1, 2010) (Soon to be re-branded as the Esquire Network).


Yep, G4 re-brands to Esquire Network on April 22nd.

It's owned by Comcast (who owns NBC, USA, SyFy, etc) and lots of old shows from those nets will be showing up on Esquire including reruns of Burn Notice, Psych and Parks and Recreation. The original programming they will launch at the end of the month includes a cooking competition show called Knife Fight that sounds like a knock-off of the Food Network's Chopped.

Oh, and Jimmy Fallon's show will air one week later at 7pm on Esquire.
