I gotta be honest, I was getting tired of the old one.
I have been a DirecTV subscriber since 2005.

A few channels I'd still like to see DirecTV add are:
CSPAN3, the PAC-12 Network(s), BBC World and more international news channels.

This new dude seems a little bit too calming for me. I think it's the music. The last woman was more attractive for me as well :).

Matt and Tonya were and always will be the best of the best though.

I kinda like the new 201 channel. Do not like the guy though.
I noticed a disclaimer when the HD basics came up that said the HD channels would be launched October 2007.

I think he kind of likes blondes better :) He liked that Gina

Strangely, I miss the old Basics channel, with basics for the first half hour, and at the bottom of the hour, Customer News which changed every month.

Then customer news was spun off into a new channel that was called ON DIRECTV I think, then killed off. I know I'm missing some specifics, but eh.

By the way, I noticed a couple of things: (Yes, I'm going to state the obvious. It's Tuesday. OK, now the other obvious: ) 1. The new GUI is included. (Sorry, didn't realize the OP already said that)

Oh, and for some reason this reminds me of the AT&T U-Verse on demand help videos (I downloaded one for reasons still unknown to me:p )

I'm a little disappointed they didn't say to do a RBR instead of saying to press the red button. C'mon DIRECTV, use the correct language

GUI is Graphical User Interface--all the colors, pictures, movements that give the menus their look and feel as we work thru them. The Current GUI is the dark blues; the new one has more white, with lighter blues and white lettering.

Cheers,
Tom
