    Hey Paco.

    If the rumor - "that channel" we don't get has landed La Liga - is true, I can't wait for the 25,000 posts from folks who don't give a hoot about footy.

    And "that channel" is supposed to be a big bidder for the EPL's 2013 - 2016 agreement as well.

    Cheers!

    After personal investigation, I think La Liga has temporarily hindered its growth in the U.S. with its new deal. If "that channel" outbids FOX/ESPN/Univision for the EPL, it will be bad news for European Soccer on U.S. Television.

    I can't believe Directv still does not have TCM in HD. All the other outlets do. You suppose to be the leader in HD. You need to get your head out of the sand, and make your customers happy. If it wasn't for us there would be no Directv!!!!!!!!

    I recorded, and tried to watch, North by Northwest, off TCM over the weekend. I couldn't stomach the blur-fest.

    I had it on the DVR too. Watched it last night and it was pretty bad. Not quite VHS quality but close.

    Interesting , North by Northwest on DVD has one of the best picture I have ever seen , and the movie is great. Haven't seen the Bluray version but I assume it should be fantastic.

    No, all other providers do not. No provider has all the HD channels, and (probably) no channel is offered by all providers as part of their basic offerings.

    Otoh, finally watching a first-run episode of Mad Men in HD on D* last night was quite tasty!

    I believe Turner Classic Movies HD will get added by DirecTV this year. (That, plus BBC America HD.)

    As for the rest of your comment: no $hit!

    I agree. Mad Men was one of the very few shows I would watch in SD so finally seeing it in HD was very cool.:)

    Good thing that AMCHD was added. You can watch all the CSI:Miami that you want on AMC now.

    I was trying to remember which channel showed it because I remember seeing it in HD awhile back. I do have the DVD version and like you slimoli haven't seen the Blu Ray version but if the Sony transfer is any indication it would indeed be fantastic.
