    Great News! Was expecting 4 or 5 new HD channels, but not 8. And as SR mentioned earlier, more HD will follow. Thanks to Sixto for the updates.

    Just to set a few expectations here, things can always change, testing can reveal issues, etc. However, if all goes well, then you'll see multiple channels on multiple days launched soon. The dates are locked in, but until testing is complete I'd rather not say what those are in the event something unexpected comes up. Safe to say the first date is soon and the second date is quickly thereafter. Good stuff, thanks for your patience. We're working hard to expand even more HD this year. This will not be the end if all goes to plan.

    I keep forgetting this, but there are times it would be nice to get FSN Cincinnati HD full time.

    Thanks SR for all that you and our DirecTV brethren do behind the scenes at DirecTV.

    This is certainly a great mix of new HD channels.

    And I'll continue to always end every TEST announcement with "no guarantees" ... testing needs to be completed, and we live in a fluid world ...

    Thanks again.

    Thanks Sixto for the Friday guessing game. It was a lot of fun reading the thread and looking at people's guesses. The Hustler HD guess was hilarious! Have a nice weekend.

    Know your sign. :)

    I'm always happy to see any HD station added since it will make plenty of people happy. I'm most happy with the addition of H2 since one of my favorite shows moved from HistHD....Ancient Aliens. I'm also happy with Cook; Food has way to many competition shows on there now. Thanks DirecTV....keep'm coming!!!!

    Now that we are getting Cooking, H2, and ID, the only other channels I want are:

    Universal Sports
    Military
    WE

    As long as we get Universal Sports in time for the start of the Giro d'Italia on May 4, I will be very happy.

    I would rather have Sundance than IFC. IFC now puts commercials in their movies and has now targeted youth with its original shows, with the exception of Portlandia.

    Sundance has begun producing high end drama series and will be adding more of those in coming months. Maybe we will get Sundance in the next additions.

    And I still hope for Ovation, which shows BBC and Australian drama series you cannot see elsewhere.
