I hope we get more basics AND more premiums in Q2.
May be a huge discovery: http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?p=2745814#post2745814
You've never done that?
The 6 million people who watched The Walking Dead finale would probably beg to differ.
It's great to know that D* is now the only major provider not carrying AMCHD.
Ugh -20 slots taken up for some "Push" mpeg4 hd service?
6 million? How many on directv?
Since trees block the EA req' for dish network here, I just used bit torrent.
Yup, the Walking Dead did very well.
WTF, no more Festivus?
Looking more and more like those of us that want basic channels are getting shafted.
That still leaves a dozen or so open slots. If they add that many more basic HD channels, most everyone should be pretty happy.
Actually, if you listen very closely the first baby is expressing his concern about missing socks and hoping that the situation improves soon. The second baby replies that if the other baby isn't happy with his socks he should get out of hte kitchen and go find a better socks provider.
Wait, only the special few like ponies. I want a Llama.
They didn't have the channels 6 months ago either. Why did you get the 2nd DVR?
Time Warner Cable might carry AMC-HD in *some* areas, but not in *all* areas. My mother in-law (Los Angeles area) still has TWC, and I guarantee you she does not have AMC-HD.
It is available on my TWC - at least, it was added in January according to the current lineup.... but I do not subscribe to it. The thing with cable is.... especially in areas like SoCal where it really is a mosh-up of left-over Adelphia systems, and bought Comcast systems (from a 2007, 2008 deal after Adelphia went bust) that they don't have the same bandwidth everywhere. So where my mother in law is maybe getting 60 HD channels, my area would be getting about 80.
So it isn't fair to say that "TWC has AMC-HD", because it certainly isn't true for every city TWC serves.
The funny thing is... while she does not have AMC-HD, my city (one city over) does have AMC-HD, but NO BBC America HD....where she.... actually DOES have BBC-America HD.
So it is really a crap shoot.
At least with DirecTV you know that everyone gets it at the same time.
Yeah yeah cable sucks :backtotop
Looks like 13 more HD adds and D12 is full.
Maybe the push service will mean that some of the bandwidth currently devoted to PPV will become available for more HD channels.
Is the sky falling, again?
I can't even name 13 current SD channels I'd watch/want in HD...anyone else?
Stop being optimistic with a logical idea...it's doom & gloom only here!
Time Warner Cable in the greater Los Angeles area has less HD channels then DirecTV.
Next to the satellite companies, U-Verse is their main competition, and in some areas it is FIOS.
FIOS is only available in Verizon areas, and there are a lot less of those then AT&T.
U-Verse HD-Quality is just plain BAD, overcompressed, lots of artifact problems.
Dish Network HD is a lot better.... but not as good as DirecTV HD.
In the Greater Los Angeles area, unless you can actually get FIOS.... DirecTV is still the best choice when it comes to quality, and number of HD channels.
That all said.... when you switched DVR 6 months ago..... were you hoping that DirecTV would add all those channels within the year contract you got in to again, or was the DVR more important then the addition of HD channels?
I don't quite get why you allowed a contract, if you could have changed to a different provider at THAT time.
