They weren't there Wednesday or Thursday.
SR said its the age of Aquarius, that starts next week.
No matter what order these channels get added, im happy. New HD is always better than no new HD. Its to the point now that we are really getting most of the popular channels in HD. Everything else not on is really in that realm of "if we pay for this now will we see a noticable change from it". If the answer is no, then I agree in.delaying something until it would be.beneficial. Either way I look forward to the.day that everything is HD
I'm hoping tomorrow is the big day! Curious how IFC will look in HD. It looks pretty lousy in SD, I haven't watched for over a year.
FUSE has to be next. Another poor quality SD channel.
Yeah, I'm thinking the traditional Wednesday for at least some.
According to several sources, Aquarius begins on the 21st.
Swanni has picked up the news, as usual Sixto you are famous! :lol:
DIRECTV to Launch 8 HD Channels This Week? (TV Predictions)
Also, for those who have not seen Swanni's 2013 Predictions .... Prediction #3: DIRECTV to Buy Netflix
When it's stated that a sign starts on such and such a date, it's about 90% accurate. Aquarius usually starts on the 21st but not always (it can be the 20th). I'm too lazy to look for and dig out my ephemeris or I could tell you, exactly.
sweet! Robin Meade in HD! Finally!
Now if we could also put Candy Crowley back on SD that would be fantastic!
This year the sun enters Aquarius at 9:58 pm (UT) on Jan. 19th.
Good Point, Mr. Rat Patrol!!! :lol:
Yes, my wife will just Love having HLN in HD (I watch Fox News so I could care less) but I will Love having H2 in HD along with The Cooking Channel. :hurah:
There are pros and cons to every decision that D* makes! :lol:
Yup. The time to get NASA HD was when the Shuttle was still flying. Now that it's gone, we'll be lucky to keep NASA at all.
As a devoted fan of the space program since I was old enough to know who John Glenn was, I firmly believe that the agency has outlived its usefulness. The government was interested in space only to make sure that the Soviets didn't plant nukes in orbit or on the Moon. And since the end of the Cold War, interest in space has dropped off sharply while the costs have risen astronomically. NASA's FY 2011 budget exceeded $18 billion. The purpose of space exploration would be far better served by a multinational private consortium.
Off topic, but I strongly disagree. The manned space program and some proven commercially viable satellites (like DirecTV) are on the way out at NASA, but that is less than one-half of NASA. NASA will be around for a long time with unmanned programs that are not yet commercially viable for a private consortium.
Whee, now we're really getting esoteric.
I think I'd point out that in this context it probably matters less what is technically accurate in this regard, than what SR understands to be when Aquarius starts, which is more likely to be a common understanding (like what gets printed in daily horoscopes in the newspapers) than a highly technical one.
And I'm still sticking with next Wednesday for the first batch out of the 8.
