    And that is the point. The networks, all of them, insert their unfair commentary over the voices of actually important people. I just want the raw floor sound from events, w/o punditry of ANY persuasion.

    We do have it, kind of. Just go to the C-SPAN website and sign in with your DirecTV account and you can watch all three channels in HD.

    It’d be nice if they had an Apple TV app for it.

    Can we get the rest of the encore channels on HD finally? NASA in HD would be great too.

    We're supposed to "soon". A new carriage deal was announced in August.

    You would think soon, but the new Viacom deal was back in March (I think) and only things new are west feeds of Comedy Central, MTV and BET. I'm not complaining though, having those are nice, but my household was hoping for nicktoons HD and TeenNick HD, but so far neither one.

    Got a postcard from AT&T in the mail yesterday announcing they'll be dropping 3 international HD channels I subscribed to. Effective 12-31-19 they're dropping the French Direct package of 3 French HD channels, Chs. 2010, 2011, 2012. Canal Plus-HD, CNews-HD and CineCanal-HD.

    I got this package for the live rugby matches from Europe and so now they'll be gone. It's always good news from AT&T. (not)

    Following up on my earlier post regarding "AT&T TV" possibly offering HD channels not offered on satellite, sure enough they're offering 15 (so far). 4 are new English-language HD's and 11 are new Spanish-language HD's.
    You can check the list on their website but I am also listing them below. AT&T TV is supposed to be the streaming version of the satellite service's line-up.

    So, even though DTV has plenty of satellite bandwidth to accommodate all these new HD's on satellite, they decided instead to add them to the new streaming service. I guess we should not be surprised this is how they feel about their satellite subs but nonetheless it really sucks to see them act to confirm it.

    New English-language HD's on AT&T TV:
    1) Logo
    2) Sportsman Channel
    3) FSN Ohio (full-time)
    4) FSN Cincinnati (full-time)

    New Spanish-language HD's on AT&T TV:
    1) Antena 3 Internacional
    2) ATres Series
    3) Canal 22 Internacional
    4) Hola TV
    5) IVC Network
    6) Multimedios TV
    7) Telefe
    8) TyC Sports
    9) Video Rola
    10) Viendo Movies
    11) Zoo Moo

    Wow, how long have we been waiting for these, and for what we pay for satellite, that’s ridiculous. But maybe we’ll see them “soon”?

    The website lists FSN-Ohio and FSN-Cincinnati as having one full-time HD channel each, it does not say they are game-only HD feeds.

    We are just under 20 days from the end of 2019. Did AT&T’s DirecTV upgrade its carriage of any given programmer’s SD to HD during this year? (I don’t recall.)

    So far, it is working without a subscription. Perhaps it is in a preview or something but anything on there can be downloaded and viewed.
