    My guess is that with 18 million customers and a poll only has 2,000 participants (at most, more likely far fewer), they will run a whole lot of polls before you and I get picked at random. :)

    Who knows, maybe I hung up on them last month not knowing it was a survey and not another installer call. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I voted. I would also put AMC as my #1. Perhaps TruTV for the NCAA tourney will not be an issue IF D* has the enhanced coverage they have been using for major sporting events, as has been rumored. Then, hopefully, all the games will be in HD.

    If this poll is a copy of an official DirecTV poll, my guess is it means that AMC is the one channel DirecTV is seriously negotiating for and/or get the most complaints about not having so there is no need to gauge audience demand. Of course, this also means that TruTV, E!, BBCA, LMN, TCM, and Investigation Discovery are trapped in the same "tango hell" as "Parallax" and "PixL"

    I tended to make my Top 5 channels I though should be added but probably weren't mainstream enough to garner many votes (Ovation/Outdoor Network) and used the "strongly interested" label to fill in the gaps. It's pretty much impossible for me to rank channels I want in some absolute order. It always depends on what I'm watching right now, which is why I take the more is merrier approach and want everyone's favorite channel in HD, not just the ones I watch. Though I would prefer the ones I watch be added first.

    Whats SD? :lol:
    Only 2,000 out of 18 million? Thats kind of small. If you ask me every HD customer should have been sent a survey.

    Whos going to actually see this poll, just us on here, or someone at D*?

    But I voted.

    SD is secure digital cards for cameras, right? :)

    National polls for elections are often less than 2,000 people. If the sample is random enough, 30 people will give you a good sense of where things are going. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom
