Pardon my ignorance, but how do you tell if the downloaded program is 480p??
While your logic makes sense, that is not what happens. New channels are automatically added so you know they exist. If you want to remove them, you can. While OWN HD appears to be the same number as OWN, the receiver sees them as two separate numbers; however, since OWN is not a new channel (just new in HD), it is not added automatically.
You can disagree with DirecTV's logic, but that is the way it has always been.
MAV tv has no sd feed,, all hd 24/7 needs to be added to the xtra pk hopefully soon.....
Well I disagree with DirecTV's logic. Content is king. If you favor a particular network (like OWN in this example), it should go HD in your list. A lot of others agreed with me last time I brought this up, and there were some that had concerns about DirecTV messing with their favorite lists. But then now some new infomercial channel just appears because it is new? Well to those people who said they don't want DirecTV messing with their favorite lists, I guess they do anyway. So might as well auto upgrade the feed to HD when a channel is added.
My tv has an info button that tells me the resolution of the DirecTV content that is playing.
The only time I see 480p is when I download from Encore On Demand
The above is provided that you have "Native" selected and all resolutions checked in the DIRECTV receiver settings.
The OSD when momentarily tapping the "FORMAT" button on the remote and resolution LED indicators on the receiver will also give you the true resolution of the program with those settings as well.
Thanks. I'll try that.
The season premiere of Best Ink is on tonight at 10 on Oxygen. I wish we would have Oxygen in HD!!!!!!
...and I heard the complete opposite, that the 3AM-3PM ET block which consists of mainly older films from the 20th Century Fox library (which are presented uncut, commercial free and OAR) is going away in September 2013 and the FX Movie Channel block which airs newer movies that have been edited for content, time, with commercial interruption and usually not in OAR will air 24/7 on the channel. :nono2:
Of course they both could be true. Fxm is its own channel and FMC goes the way of AMC.
FXM will continue to be home to acquired movies but will also begin to televise original miniseries and limited series, hoping to compete with the likes of HBO, according to Mr. Landgraf said. They are also converting Fox Soccer to FXX which will be aimed at the under 40 demographic.
It is changing its name in September from FMC to FXM
There are also the indicator lights on the left side of the front panel of the HRs that tell you the resolution of the programming.
GMC is being rebranded to "UP" in June according to Multichannel News.
Does anyone know if TheBlaze is in HD? Why isn't it on the list above?
Looks like that's available via internet streaming, besides other means. IMHO I'd rather see channels that don't have another delivery method added before this.
Actually, you may have put your finger on why directv doesn't have it. It can't be expensive and God knows directv ain't liberal and it would draw the Fox News (and more right) crowd. But directv has shown an aversion to programming that is available via other means such as streaming. That was a part of their wanting a lower price for Viacom channels.
It looks like they record in HD and the stream is HD but it also looks like only Dish has it and only SD. Are they delivering HD for providers if no one uses it? That would be wasteful. So it probably isn't available HD as a linear channel.
This is from reading tea leaves on the webpage as it is almost 99% about pushing the streaming option for $10 a month.
HRTV is not a RSN
TCN Philadelphia and CSN Philadelphia + is the same channel.
also you listed pac12 2 times.
These are the two I'm waiting for. According to this press release, the deal was already done.
Well it doesn't say they have to carry it only that they could if they wanted to add it.
