I show it was added to my programming package today on the DirecTV web site, so maybe there is still hope it will show up today.

According to a competing forum, both FOX HD East and FOX HD West will be up for the games tonight. I just wonder what satellite they will be on? Seems like 110 along with CBS HD and NBC HD. The original rumor was apparently 101, but I don't know how.
Anybody else wonder just how horrible WWE's "wrestling" is gonna get?

A little OT, but I do not show CBS_HD on my programming list on the D* website, but I get it.

Why wouldn't FOX be the same? (I think I understand the O&O debate going on, I'm more referring to what the D* website says).

Thanks.

Looks like we gotta wait for Charlie to decide if FOX-HD is compelling enough for E* scrubs...er subs before D* can get it.

I just called a CSR and was told that they will NOT be going live with FOX HD tonight. However there is speculation that this will be a "special event" type thing to go around CheapA$$ Charlie's games.

It's in my program guide now too. I wonder if they're just doing the game in HD.

charlie needs to grow up if he was sooo interested in fox hd he could have beaten dish to the punch back when fox hd went on. But hopefully they will do the special events thing for baseball and football that would be good for now

OK, my on-screen program guide now shows FOXHD E as 88 and FoxHD W as 89 starting at 8pm tonight for the games. Hopefully they have resolved whatever issues caused the delay and it will really be up at 8pm.
