    Why do you guys keep talking about Directv's business model ? Who cares ? We want new HD channels and that's what really matters. More tango and less bla bla bla..!

    The two are intertwined. A successful business model is what allows them to offer new channels, services, and features.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just buy a Parrot?

    OK, we've established DIRECTV's successful business model. Where's the basic HD? :shrug:

    Soon :lol:

    Absolutely the reason I have been lurking in the thread the past couple of days. After seeing it in HD on SciFi, just so.. wearying, to try and watch it in SD.

    Hoosier... if someone was lost and asked you for directions, would you give them 2 scenario'd answers on how to reach their destination? Instead of being direct and just giving 1 answer?

    No, I would give them one precise answer. The same type of answer I gave you.

    So, for the sake of a handful of basketball games we're getting a otherwise lame channel added in HD. :rolleyes:

    this is wonderful news...however AS EXPECTED D* wont have the channel in HD after the tourney..it'll be launched later this year

    which coins the SOON phrase so many here speak of D*'s addition of HD channels..

    Gotta now speculate where will it be...Will it be side by side on its SD channel spot in HD...or ONLY on any FREE multi screen package (yes I know there's no PPV for the tournament this year) solely....

    This will also liven up the blogs here, because SOON later this year it will be added, thus what other goodies are going to come with it??...will it be finally be more national basic HD?? Can D* finalize the missing premium channels in HD?? or yet more PPV channels...stay tuned D* fans...same bat time...same bat channel..

    Not exactly...Directv had planned to launch it later this year, which it will. For now, it'll be on for games & post/pre game coverage.

    A lame channel to you...not everyone agrees. In fact, TruTV beats out the often asked for AMC & BBCA in viewership for the year.

    Very nice news! But begs the next question, what are the chances this also brings TCM-HD and/or HLN-HD?

    I just don't get if your adding for NCAA, Y not just keep it on, instead of turning it off then back on later this year.

    & Y is every1 complaining?? If you like the station or not, it is still finally an addition to basic-national HD lineup
