Popularity among the cool kids. Just like high school.
I would LOVE Turner Classic Movies in HD please.
Yeah... I saw that when I checked the guide, and had forgotten about it...
Same here. Plus FMC HD, BBCA HD, H2 HD, and The Military Channel HD.
Looks pretty much like my list.
Replace FMC HD (which I would like) with CW HD-DNS East, H2 HD (which I would like) with CW HD-DNS West, and The Military Channel HD with TV Land HD, and add DIY HD and The Cooking Channel HD, and you'd have my list!
Agree with you, plus HLN and LMN. Any rumors as to new HD channels or is that it for new additions?? Very quiet lately.
None that I know of.
I had a Nielsen book last week for May sweeps. I "watched" BBCA for 8 hours a day, every day for the entire week.
Just helping the cause.
Hi there, glad to meet you :lol:
Sometimes I wish we had a "like" button around here. . .
Oh my. I wonder what this means for D*? Maybe some more HD channels. :sure:
DirecTV's executive shake-up: Chang leaving, AT&T's York joining
I hope so. Chang was the one who basically said we had all the HD we needed right?
I don't know if I'd call it a shake up when Chang is still going to be there until the end of this year.
A "Like" feature was made available in vBulletin about a year ago.
I'm betting that Derek Chang and Robert Mercer were not the best of buds given some of the statements that Chang issued.
And a guy from AT&T will make things better how? PQ is not a hallmark of In Demand or UVerse.
"One of York's first duties will be negotiating a carriage agreement with Time Warner Cable's two new regional sports networks that are launching in Southern California this October. Chang had already expressed concern about Time Warner Cable potentially seeking too high a price tag for the channels."
Well, there you have it. More HD is coming by October. - If the negotiations of course turn out good, but I think the general consensus is that these channels are pretty much a must-carry for DirecTV.
(Of course it only helps DirecTV customers in HALF of California, ALL of Nevada, PARTS of Arizona, and in Hawaii. Still, the Lakers DMA is covering about 30 million potential customers, or 10% of the U.S. population, so that will - if we keep the 10% math - translate to about 2 million customers, and I think since DirecTV is so popular in SoCal, that this number might be closer to 3 million customers in the above mentioned states.)
We shall see. U-Verse TV is a crappy product though, lets hope that doesn't translate into what he wants to do.
If the only issue with U-Verse TV is the PQ, I'm not sure it's that much of an issue. Since DirecTV has obviously figured out a way to add additional channels with their current infrastructure, with more space coming in the future, I don't really seeing it being an issue. :whatdidid
Besides... while the EVP of content strategy and development change might result in some differences in plans, I really doubt that the guy is going to run out and sign every HD channel we're missing...
It's also good to keep in mind, there's always the possibility that things could actually get worse regarding additions...
