    In the meantime, everyone right now with an internet connected HD/DVR can enjoy some of LMN, H2, Cooking Channel & TV Land's content in HD via VOD. :D

    As an Aquarius, and as an unrepentant flower child of the 60s, I resemble that!

    Now they need an H3 HD with actual historical programming being History and H2 are completely filled with reality programming and supernatural nonsense. ;)

    Just a little related testimonial. . . I got off the phone with D* a few mins ago, after having accepted a new two year extension (our contract would have run out in a few months) related to some equipment upgrades. . . and my willingness to do both the upgrades and the contract extension were absolutely directly correlated to the happy news we've had in this (family of) threads the last several months.

    Neither do I but D* will give me a credit for signing someone up for service. While not a new activation TheRatPatrol extended his contract directly from the news Sixto and SR provided. Ought to be worth something:D

    With the new additions coming, does it take the sting out of the upcoming price hikes for anyone? A teensie bit of the sting is gone for me...

    I looked at Alan's list again. For me, we are truly scraping the bottom of the barrel. My new list of channels I'd like (though very grateful for what we're being given):

    Full time HD FSN Cincinnati
    NASA
    Military Channel
    Military History added with HD

    Oh, I still have a few more channels I'd like in HD.

    FMC, SUND, NASA, CSPAN1, CSPAN2. Eight is a pretty big haul tho. . .it wouldn't surprise me if they blew the whole 1Q budget on that, assuming our speculation about back-end upgrade pace is in the ballpark.
