    Revolt was added yesterday, while MBC Drama HD was added back on the 17th. (Plus, for those who care, another SD P/I channel Impact was added back on the 3rd to meet the quota for all the additions we got since the last P/I channel was added)

    For those who haven't been following the anticipation thread or the transponder map updates, two more are launching on Monday:

    382 Comedy.TV HD
    383 Justice Central HD

    Channels 382 and 383 have a very limited amount of entertainment content and lots of Comercials. What is the target audience?

    Then I should be receiving these with Preferred Xtra. There must be some authorization issues with these new additions.

    There is no specific target audience, it's just part of a bunch of genre based channels created by Entertainment Studios that reair shows from their syndication library:

    In another thread you'll see the reason, they basically sued and part of the settlement was an agreement for carriage with both DirecTV and U-Verse:

    Both channels are being launched about 25 years too late.

    Do any of these clowns at Directv even consult with the public, when they waste bandwidth? And they wonder why people are moving on to streaming sites.

    While these HD additions may not hold favor with you they most likely do with others ("One man's candy can be another man's poison.") The "clowns'" know what they're doing.

    There was a lawsuit by these two stations for carriage because they are black owned and they are carrying them to get rid of the lawsuit.

    According to the article linked above, we should be getting several more channels from this company including ones dedicated to travel, cooking and cars.

    Wow here I was thinking a channel called Comedy TV would be like old sitcoms and stuff and I find it literally only has 3 shows. What a waste. And Justice Central is literally just a channel of daytime court shows!

    Found out the Justice Central court shows are scripted with paid actors. They are not Judge Mathis, People's Court and Judge Judy. Shame I was looking forward to that channel. Unless its still would be fun to watch scripted court shows vs real ones?

    It depends on the script. Law and Order has made a lot of shows (several long running series) out of what end up being court cases. If the stories are compelling enough they do not have to be the actual people involved in a case shown on TV. It can be drama based on a true story or fictionalized events.
