I want my PAC-12 TV!
And comcrap sports northwest CSN-NW wouldn't hurt neither
AFAIK, Chiller is available in HD. It's not on their website and I can't seem to find a provider that has it in HD.
Where did you see it being carried?
Everyone's favorite weights in with speculation…
Will DIRECTV Offer '200 HD Channels' This Year?
By Phillip Swann a.k.a. Swanni (04.29.2013)
There is some space available, but 15 additional HD channels is close to the limit prior to the new bird coming on line sometime in 2014. DirecTV is not going to allocate 15 channels to Al Jazeera English, RT International, France 24 English, NHK World English, CCTV News, CCTV-9, Arirang World, Euronews, DW English, Asian News International, MAC TV, VTV4, Ethiopian Television, Jewish News 1 and Fuji TV is not going to happen. Perhaps Al Jazeera and either NHK or Fuji within the next year, but I do not see any of the others until 2015, if at all. BBC World has a better chance than the 15 channels from which MHz Worldview draws their programming.
I would like to see HRTV, and I would like to see TVG in HD, but neither are available in HD. Unfortunately, I do not think HRTV is a high priority for DirecTV. From your list, BBC World is the only one I think has a shot of being added within the next year, and even that is a long shot.
...And your basis for this prediction is what, "I don't want these channels, so D* shouldn't waste the bandwidth?"
It has nothing to do with what I want. It has to do with what will draw (or retain) the most customers for DirecTV and what contracts DirecTV already has in place. Depending on who is counting and how, there are between 15 and 20 HD slots available prior to 2014. There will be more HD channels added, but 15 of the remaining slots are not going to be allocated to those channels. One or two, perhaps, but not 15. There are too many other channels that will bring more additional revenue to DirecTV than most of those will. Like it or not, DirecTV is in business to make money.
Yeah well some of us like channels that don't air reality shows or sports 24/7. Apparently we don't matter though.
You are in the minority, so you matter much less in the grand scheme of things.
I want beIN Sports Spanish HD
FuseHD please DTV lol.
Well maybe I'll only pay a minority of my bill from now on.
OWN On Demand (1279) was added recently, all content is in HD, and also available via DirecTV Everywhere.
Currently, the other Discovery Communications owned networks do not carry HD VOD content and are not available on DirecTV Everywhere.
These are the only 2 providers (allegedly) carrying it, although I have heard that there isn't even a HD feed uplinked on C-Band from the distributor, its possible there simply upconverting it.
Channel 1258 under Lifestyle & Sports Pass section
Yes, if you type in 99156 (Newport, WA zip code) and select Concept Communications from the dropdown it shows they carry the feed on channel 149 in HD as the lineup linked above shows. What is strange though is if you try a zip code for the Kansas based provider TCT it does not state their HD channel location...
It's a shame to see Swann pulling stunts like this, calling out Satelliteracer by name in his "article" .
I can understand his need / desire to post news when he finds it. But plastering a username in the release was not cool, in my opinion.
It may get to the point that he has to quit posting on here, to keep his job.
it's not news, it's opinion, because he's not a reporter, he's an amateur blogger.
This would be my top 5 HD wants
1. The Blaze
2. The Hub
i am a retired reporter. trust me. swanni would have been fired a long time ago for this crap if he was employed by a newspaper.
I don't understand why anyone would even read his blog. I also don't know why people post links to his articles here. If we wanted to read them we'd go there ourselves. Why feed the troll?
