Playboy TV is moving to channel 559 (formerly IFC) as of 8/15. See channel 589-1 for more information.

  

Seems like an odd placement.

Very odd.......

I agree with you RatPatrol....this move is very strange!

Pivot's not in HD, however their VOD selection on 1267 is in HD. Currently they have episodes of Farscape, Friday Night Lights and some other shows available.

Halogen TV the other channel that is now Pivot was HD so there is an HD feed for it u-verse has it (not 100% on the new channel)


I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Now up to 37 HD-PPV. So we did get new HD today.

Yes. They seem to come and go. A few back today. I don't always post when they come and go due to how often it is, but you're always all over the PPV.

PPV changes as streams open and close. Part time streams are turned to PPV when they are not being used for various golf events, extra sports streams or alternate rsns. Why waste them?

Maybe but there is no connection between 500s and HD any more than any other range.

Since Directv is on board with EPL extra time, will the HD channels be added on 8/15 two days before the season starts?

The more I think about playboy being in the middle of non adult entertainment, the more it bothers me.

Yeah, Viacom launched HD feeds for Nick Jr and BET West today. Nicktoons HD is launching on the 13th.

I thought Playboy HD coming to DirecTV was already confirmed earlier in the thread.

When will Teenick HD launch. It would be nice to see "the 90s are all that" in better picture quality.

They put the adult search icon in the main menu front and center.  Don't give them any more ideas!

Just tuned to it now. It's rolling credits, which look like bad SD. But maybe they do that now to save a bit of bandwidth. Will record next program. 

 

OK, just started.... it's very soft, but fill the screen, no stretching. 


"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.
