As someone else said, if you didn't ... someone else would have. So ... just enjoy life and forget about this thread! If it's getting too bad, you can always unsubscribe from the thread, you know! ;)

I know, but I just can't believe so many people are channel counting :eek2: I remember when I first got on the Forum and was posting about D getting The Tennis Channel (this was before it came out that D was getting TTC) everyone was saying that I was :beatdeadhorse: That's now the way I feel about this thread so I guess it is pay back time :rolleyes:

Channel counting gets old, but it’s fun to watch the arguments over what constitutes a channel. I have a lot less channels with cable then satellite because I only get three shopping channels, and two religious channels with Time Warner. And that’s fine with me. Next month I’ll be getting HD channels #19 (ESPN 2 HD) and #20 (My Network HD) and that’s actual channels, no On Demands or the sports package HD channels.

HD channel offerings will be no different the SD channels. One multichannel video provider will get a channel, then in a few years every provider will carry the channel. I remember back when DirecTV was the only major player that carried FX.

Does anybody here remember Sonny and Cher? Do you remember their song "And the Beat Goes On"? For some reason this thread reminds me of that song :beatdeadhorse: :rolleyes: :D
