    How about NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox in HD for their VOD's.

    So then the guesses that stuff was coming off D10 because of the 'problem' look like they were wrong, good to hear.

    Would love to see some regular Spanish programing Galavision, Telemundo, and Spanish Sports Channels in HD. ESPN DEPORTES, UNIVISION DEPORTES, BeIN SPORTS ESPANOL and GOL TV.

    This makes that price hike a lot easier to move past - at least for me!

    Let's hope they all launch soon, and avoid a repeat of ION. All in all, great news. Beyond 2... ahem... sports channels that we are missing that maybe be of interest to people in the Western half of the United states and Texas, I'm struggling to find channels that i even care whether i have in HD at this point. My list is dwindling to scraps.

    The Hub, Fox Movie Channel.... fill out the rest of the premiums?

    Wow I did not expect this on a Friday! All great additions and I am very pleased to see these added, especially IFC HD!

    Looking forward to when these go live! Got a few favorites lists to edit!

    Looking forward to the future when everything is in HD.

    Well played Directv.

    I'll get 7 of those 8 new HD channels in the Choice Xtra package, more to add to my guide.

    I figured.. I wonder what the vegas odds would be on those channels in 2013 (11 more months)


    Pac-12 (1 national) 1-10
    Pac-12 (7 channels) 1-50
    CSN-Houston 1-25
    Longhorn 1-500
    CSN-NW - off

    Yes, referring to CSN Houston. The Longhorn Network would be cool too, but I'm not necessarily losing sleep over that one because unlike Pac12 or CSN Houston we're only missing 2 or 3 bottom tier college games that were sold as PPV anyway prior to TLN. As an Austin resident, I wouldn't see the Rockets games anyway so no loss there - but Texas law treats both the Astros and Rangers as home market teams for the entire state so no carriage for CSN Houston means no coverage for the Astros for the entire state not just Houston.

    PS: yes... silly as it may be, Texas legislates sports stuff. Tried very hard to make UT and A&M legally bound to each other in terms of conference.
