    I'm going to take a guess actually join the consensus that DBSStephen doesn't know what the f*ck he is talking about. His profile also states his yahoo as "sexyman871" I have it on common sense that no one with a screen name like that could hold a position of knowing anything about new DirecTV channels let alone holding/or have held a position there.

    Yeah... but their website is not viewable on my TV, nor is their app... not to mention, neither is in HD to my knowledge. :(

    How old is your TV? Mine lets me plug my computer into it and use it as a monitor. I could do the same with my iPod and iPhone if I dropped 50 bucks for the special cable.

    Yes... I could connect either my netbook or my laptop via VGA, but it'd still be in SD.

    I don't think that The CW app allows you to use AirPlay whereas the cable would display it... I think. :confused:

    I'm confused, do you not have access to CW on TV at all, not even in SD, or just not in HD?

    If you don't have it at all on TV in any format and really want to watch their shows, get the DVDs or use the online downloads. If you want their shows in HD, look for the Blurays.

    I have them in SD from DirecTV via a semi-local affiliate, as well as the East & West Coast DNS feeds, and I can receive them in SD OTA via a neighboring market as well. The DNS feeds are superior to my semi-local as they manage to get rid of one of the most obnoxiously sized station bug I have ever seen...

    Only some of their programming makes it to Blu-ray... granted, MOST of the shows I watch do, but not all... and you're catching up with it a year behind. :mad:

    Hence why HD-DNS feeds are either at the top of my list, or second on my list of most wanted HD channels!

    IMO it seems silly to get mad about it since there's other ways to get your shows in HD than watching it on regular TV.

    Why what? You're complaining about a problem that has several solutions, just not the solution you want.

    While I cannot disagree that HD-DNS feeds are near the top of your list, I strongly disagree that they should be anywhere near the top of DirecTV's list. Unlike local HD feeds, which use spot beams, DNS feeds require a CONUS beam for a transmition that very few DirecTV subscribers are even allowed to receive. The CONUS beams should be reserved for programming that everyone could have the option of receiving.

    You should be complaining to your local CW to upgrade to HD broadcasting. Our local CW station does broadcast in HD, but many of the programs they broadcast are not in HD, anyway.

    I pay DirecTV a considerable amount of my paycheck each month to be my TV provider. In the scheme of things, it means VERY little, but I think we all have a right to be upset when we're told that a solution is to go out and spend even more money.
