Best guess, April or, more likely, May.
More likely April.
April 1st @ midnight. :sure:
for me TCM HD AMC HD BBCA HD and Travel Channel would work for me. Im more about DOD HD offerings
D12 is moving along nicely, and it appears that the 2/15 date in the FCC filing is very possible.
Then 4 weeks of testing until 3/15.
And then 3 weeks to move to 103, by 4/5.
And then hopefully "live" by 4/30.
If it slips to May, then it's early-May, or something went wrong along the way.
Does anyone know when wgn and espnu will be gonig to hd. I hope i posted in the right place. Thanks
Well, ESPNU HD is set to go live the first quarter of 2010 according to a press release by D*. WGN HD is rumored to be coming out in the first wave of rollouts with the new satellite in April/May or if they use bandwith from somewhere else anytime soon. WGN HD has been in the rumor bin for a while. Probably will light up before MLB starts though! Or one can hope...stay tuned!
I secretly wish for March/April, but in this case I am "promising" little so they can deliver big.
Posted ar 1:42PM today on DirecTV Twitter:
Soccer fans: We are in discussions with Fox regarding Fox Soccer Plus, but we have not reached an agreement yet. Stay tuned.
If it's a paid single channel, like Setanta was, screw that. Add it to the Sports Pack.
I want to know if ESPN Gameplan will now be in HD? Since they have extra HD slots, shouldn't Gameplan and Full Court be converted?? Im just wondering if anybody knows. Thanks!
That's up to ESPN/ABC/Disney.
No it belongs in Choice/Choice Xtra like all the other single sport channels (NFLN, MLBN, NHLN, NBA, Golf, Tennis, Speed).
Fox Soccer and Gol are both part of the Sports Pack.
Personally, I wouldn't mind a soccer package. Rarely do I watch a distant RSN, but need the Sportpack for Fox Soccer.
So, if they put togther a soccer premium pack for say $15/mo that includes the UEFA channels they had, Fox Soccer, Fox Soccer+, Gol and FSE, I could do that. Include the MLS Direct Kick and I would be sold.
I stopped subscribing to these packages 3-4 years ago when I went HD. The SD feeds look atrocious and are not worth the time or money. I will probably get back on board once they go HD, and I'm shocked it hasn't happened already.
They tried including a 24 hour channel with a game only package already (NBA TV with NBA League Pass) but people decided it wasn't worth the premium price (especially during the offseason) so DirecTV moved it to a basic package.
Hoping for 13601 zip local stations when D12 goes live (doubt that will EVER happen in my life time).
The proposed legislation currently banging around in Congress may change that and the expiration of the existing rules is only four weeks away.
...and the legislation is expected to be completed and enacted prior to the deadline.
This discussion does not apply to you. Move along...
