Military Channel. I don't know if this was one of the channels Discovery said it was going to add.
Travel Channel

And yes, WGN. For the Cubs' games.

Fox Sports Midwest. It does carry HD, but right now it's not on DirecTV's radar.

I think you may have FoxNews in HD sooner rather than later. FOX NEWS SUNDAY is in HD already so the DC set is HD capable. And Shep Smith's studio is under renovation as we speak. I doubt Ailes and Murdoch would let "CNN looks great in HD" go on for long.
Stay classy,FURLEY OUT! Have I really been coming here for5 years!?!

Yes but it's owned by iN Demand whose shareholders are Time Warner / Cox / Comcast. Don't think we'll see that anytime soon. Too bad, they've got some really good programming. Three Sheets is the only thing that kept me with cable so long.

Vote for all Discoveries, Comedy Central, and Fuse.

HR34-700 -> Elite VSX-43 -> Elite 50" Plasma
C31 -> Vizio 48" LCD
C31 -> Samsung 32" LCD

16:9 480i. Fox doesn't do anything in 480p.
