    Not much to get excited about for non premium subs.
    Nice addition for those looking at starz and show.
    HBO/ Max still getting no love. HBO will now have 3 HD's not duplicating west feed. Cinemax just 1 channel. Apparently direct does not care if HD subs go with total choice package or not. Value in premium HD is still no where close to the asking price.

    Urgh!!! Still no E! HD.

    Hopefully that is coming with the next wave of new HD channels.

    I'm with you on this one, Anchorman. E! is the only other HD channel we're waiting for. Once its here, anything else is gravy.

    Still waiting.

    I haven't been following closely. Any news if AMC will be coming before the start of the new Mad Men season.

    I will be very happy if/when they add this one. Until then, the other channels hold no meaning/value to me.

    I'm thrilled with the new additions on that list especially those 3 RSN's going fulltime on D*. Only channel I can and will do without is Lifetime HD.

    very pleased with the addition of the premiums, this is one area I believe D* has lacked behind against E*.

    One thing I've learned about D* after 11 years is they always get these channels after the ideal time, so I'm not holding out much hope.

    Forget about it. Out of 14 new channels launching next week exactly 2 aren't premium ones. Apparently that's enough to excite people on here who drink the kool-aid, but it's vastly disappointing. MAD MEN is only one of the highest rated cable shows but more folks seem to be excited than an RSN that rolls out lumberjack championships 12 hours a day is now in HD full-time. :rolleyes:

    Hey I will be thrilled if it launches in time. But it's kind of like when I was hoping ESPNU would launch in time for college football season -- 2009.

    Are you saying there's a chance?!!?

    DTV sure seems to have a great relationship with Showtime.
