It's behind a pay wall on sat guys.

Someone posted on here that it was Playboy, QVC and galavision but it was later deleted.


I'll wait until Swanni has it. ;)

I hope when SR said more Q3 that it's more than these...

 

Maybe at least DirecTV didn't give QVC an EasyPay option.

Oh well. At some point the additions had to be garbage. Time is now. We are now scraping the barrel itself?

Your garbage is someone else's gold. I'm sure I'd think some of your picks were nothing but crap.

More HD is great, but I don't get playboy, can't speak Galavision, and QVC doesn't have any hit shows (does it?)

Really wish it was Fuse, We, Oxygen, FXM.

- > Link to my setup thread< -

My  DirecTV HD WISHLIST:  NickJR, Nicktoons, Revolt.TV, FXM, We, Oxygen, The Hub, Fuse, GSN, Sprout, GAC, Esquire, BBC World News, Sundance, Up, Music Choice Play HD, Al Jazeera America, Military Channel, NASA

My DirecTV SD WISHLIST: MTV Hits, MTV Jams, Music Choice, Youtoo TV

Yawn.

 

I understand.

 

I figure DirecTV has a lot of ground to cover.

 

 

Thank you, TheRatPatrol, for mentioning the list I made early in this quarter.

 

@ http://www.dbstalk.c...d/#entry3153119

 

QVC HD was among the Top Five (if we are to get that many) I anticipated. Galavision HD is a Wild Card. And I did not think at all that DirecTV was going after Playboy TV HD.
(Those premium-adults movie programmers are expensive. Those subscribing will consider it overdue.)

 

I do find it puzzling that there seems to be some avoidance of the Comcast/NBC Universal programmers' high definition. I'm referring to the ones currently in the DirecTV lineup in standard definition.
They are: Oxygen HD, PBS Kids Sprout HD, Style Network HD, TV One HD, and Universal Sports HD.

 

The HD Anticipation threads can be fun. But DirecTV can make me think, "Damn. What in hell … !"

Yes, but I firmly am in the camp of those disappointed with these additions.
