The most intelligent thing written in weeks on this thread
I believe some of them are PPV channels that are used for ST. Still, bandwidth is not an issue.
So do we think there is any chance of anything other then the two HBO's launching
Not this week, no. No more from SR and nothing else showing up in testing.
I thought so. Thanks
HBO Signature (503) and HBO Family (507) are now alive and well in HD. I had to add the channels to my custom guide.
Thanks! I was just wondering, I'm at work and can't check.
satracer said that there will be new channels coming in the next couple of weeks i hope that they add RFDTVHd they added it on dish network last week.
We got two channels, so......bi-winning.
No offense but if they add RFDtv in HD before AMC or BBC-America I may have to give up on DirectTV all together!!
DIRECTV Adds 2 HBO HD Channels
Washington, D.C. (March 30, 2011) -- DIRECTV this morning added two HBO channels to its High-Definition lineup.
The new channel, which were added at 6 a.m. ET, are HBO Signature (channel 503) and HBO Family (507).
DIRECTV, which once was the undisputed HD leader, has been slow to add new high-def channels over the last year or two. The HBO additions will make some subscribers happy, but will likely generate more unhappiness among the larger DIRECTV audience which has been demanding more basic cable channels to be in HD.
Despite numerous calls from subscribers, the satcaster has not added high-def feeds for several popular basic channels such as AMC, BBC America, Turner Classic Movies, E! Entertainment and OWN. Some cable operators have added those channels in HD.
Back to HBO, though, the premium movie network has reported a decline in subscriptions lately. The new high-def channels on DIRECTV, which has nearly 20 million subscribers, could help improve HBO's sub base with that audience.
No one knows here for sure (except SR perhaps)..but based on other posts...that channel is not among the speculated list for April.
It's possible the launches may not come until late in April, or perhaps even roll into May. But for right now...we're likely weeks away from the next "group" of new channels.
It lends itself nicely to starting the 2Q 2011 Anticipation thread Friday with a "bang', doesn't it?
Hey, I need me some Corn College in HD!
I had to Google it. I'm with you on this one. AMC, BBC, and many others should be ahead of "Rural America's most important TV network." Just sayin'.....
"Numerous calls." Nice journalism. Of course there are numerous calls. About just about anything. Or maybe Swanni was making the calls himself?
