    As other's have said all HD adds are good additions! That being said I hope by late August we can hear that Pac 12 Network(s) is being added. Also would love to see Universal Sports HD added in the next wave.

    Nice surprise!

    Still hoping for the day that AMC Networks package is carried in HD in its entirety. Missing FUSE HD, WE HD and Sundance HD for that package.

    Then the Comcast properties, Style and Oxygen HD. Then the only thing left we put on in SD yet would be kids programming that is not Disney JR or Nick HD. Wouldn't mind FXM, GSN and Reelz in HD, then those would be "new channels" to us, since I only prefer to watch HD if possible.

    Looking forward to Bloomberg HD, although I've been watching it online for the past couple of years. Regardless, no HD compares to DirecTV's.

    All of us nerds who watch Bloomberg West, which has just expanded to two hours daily will love seeing Emily Chang in HD.

    Any new HD is great in my book. Glad they are keeping them coming.

    CNBC HD is my default daytime background noise channel. So, I'll probably at least give BloombergTV a look-see once it is HD.

    I guess Bloomberg TV HD is good if your into monitoring stock market numbers or business news, But any HD is good HD.

    There are not enough non-HD channels to make a difference. Many of the non-HDs are PIs required to be carried or other channels that compensate DirecTV for carriage.

    I gotta say I never say Bloomberg HD coming, big surprise there, but a good choice.

    Still hoping for the last few movie channels, HBOFw, TMCw, FLIX, and the 2 Encores. And also FMC, Reelz, Military, Fuse, IFC, NASA, CSPAN (3), EWTN & Universal Sports

    Whattya know!

    … BLOOM HD.


    I've seen it on display, and it looks really good.


    As mentioned by me previously, I appreciate the basic-cable additions that came in last year and this past January. A full slate of linear HD is what I want. I do hope, while we're still in 2013, that we get the AMC Networks [We TV HD and Fuse HD] and Comcast [Oxygen HD, PBS Kids Sprout HD, Style Network HD, and TV One HD] brands that are still outstanding. But the suspense is kind of fun. After all, we still don't get GSN HD; and DirecTV is partial owner of this programmer.

    My number-one pick, personally, is Reelz Channel HD. And that is because I want to be able to watch its programming—along with the Season #02 premiere this Wednesday—of Bomb Girls. I haven't been able to catch any of on Reelz Channel's On Demand. So, I'm ready for a full-service programming launch of Reelz Channel HD.
