And bring back GolTV HD!  If not back on the Sports Pack, at least give it to the people that are paying $15 more for En Espanol to see an English channel.  Gol TV has come back strong when everyone left it for dead after BeIN got the Spanish La Liga rights.  Gol retained the German Bundesliga and has now added the Dutch Eredivisie.  They also carry the first choice Argentina game (the other nine games are on TyC) and a couple of Brazilian league games.  But BeIN Espanol HD and ESPN Deportes HD is great news to get while the DTV installer is mounting the dish on my roof as we "speak."

New to DirecTV after getting sick of cable not adding any HD channels and missing so many sports channels, I'm going to have so much more HDTV.

 

My Top 10 of wants would be GSN, FXM, Sundance, Military, Reelz, IndiePlex, RetroPlex, Encore Drama, OuterMax and The Hub.

We still need Fox Deportes Hd but something is something.
 
A grain here ,a grain there, will soon make a loaf.
 
Would still like to see Telemundo channel 406 in HD since D* does not pick up my local.Also a couple of sd stations like Estrella TV,Cine Mexico,De Pelicula would be nice.
 
EDIT: What is the usual average time frame a channel goes from HD testing to showing up on the actual guide and listing? Thanks.


Yea only fox deportes hd is missing but thats it the other channels you naming dont even come in hd this is a big step for diredtv

When Fuse HD firset launched (And a while thereafter) it wasn't really HD - just stretched SD. Has this changed?

I agree with all of the Fox Deportes wishes! It would be great! In addition to the soccer, there is Saturday MLB (often different than the game shown on my local Fox stations) and UFC and more than just soccer! But Yay for the others!

If this is channel 339, it only shows that it is SD on my guide.

That would make a ton of sense. I'd say it will go live on or before August 17th

After some searching around I found a site that lists all the places FUSE is broadcast from.

It shows

Comcast has it in HD and so does DISH.
