    I'll try to get a response, it could have been another case of the message being drafted before the contract was finalized. (Similar to what happened back when Ion HD didn't launch with the rest of the channels)

    New HD is always nice.

    But still wondering where GSN HD is, partially owned by D*.

    Slightly off topic but it would be cool if they added an English SAP feed for some of these programs. I was watching f1 practice on UNIDEP last night. Sure would have been cool to know what was being said.

    Not my cup of tea, but the wife might watch once in awhile. I'm all in favor of keeping the ladies happy --makes it easier to keep a premium service like D* when the missus is happy too.

    I got a email that OWN was being moved to more $ package. I have the Basic . Not going to miss it N. I will pay more for sports not going to pay more for Oprah.

    My wife watched it once, likely never again. But the more HD the better.

    While I'm no Oprah fan, I've mentioned elsewhere around here that Our America with Lisa Ling is a great documentary like series on OWN.

    It is baffling to me that Directv doesn't have ESPN Deportes HD.

    I would certainly expect that a spanish language channel would have spanish closed captions.

    A lot of Univision programming has English captions when you select CC3. I haven't spotted any on Deportes yet.
