Quality vs Quantity debate moved to it's own thread since it has little to do with HBO's announcement ...

Does that 150 national HD channels include the D11 sat or is that strictly for local HD?

It includes both D10 and D11.

Good to see someone cares about PQ up in corporate. The SD channels are bad..I was watching Superman Returns the other day and in the dark scenes it was horrible and I have a tube TV, so it wasn't my TV"s fault.
