    BabyTV used to be $4.99 a month until its owners and D* realized that was a ripoff and made it a basic channel. Maybe the same will happen to Dog TV.

    Put Dog TV HD into the HD Extra Pack. Bring in FEARnet HD. Add that as well to HD Extra Pack. Take Hallmark Movie Channel HD out of the HD Extra Pack and move over next to Hallmark Channel HD. (Probably the way to do it is switch ABC Family HD to ch. 310 and make ch. 311 HALMOV HD.) That way, DirecTV can get people to pay a good $5 for Dog TV. And have to get it in HD, which is another $10 access charge.

    I like the way you think. That's too logical... DirecTV won't do it, makes too much sense!

    Will DOG TV be MPEG4 SD?? HD?

    The online feed is like $10 /m.

    It's not really the best use of the limited SD bandwidth

    I won't be surprised if my mom decides to finally dump Comcast and get DirecTV because of this.

    Who let the dogs out?

    It sounds like it won't be in HD.

    Even though I have a very soft spot for dogs, I can't justify the price point unless DogTV asked for a substantial sum.

    Now how about including Epix to the HD Extra Pack and finally adding CSN Philly and Houston with the RSN surcharge/Sports Pack price increase.

    Comcast does not want to make CSN Philly or Houston available on satellite. No matter what DirecTV offers, they will find a reason to say no. Particularly CSN Philadelphia - Comcast is headquartered in Philadelphia and they don't want to see huge defections to satellite in their home town (which WOULD happen because almost everyone in Philadelphia loathes Comcast's service).
