    Yes. This is what i've read as well. Content breaks will be along the lines of TBS - Comedy; TNT = Drame.

    FX = Drama
    FXX = Comedy (Converted from Fox Soccer)
    FXM = Acquired Movies / Liminted Series / Mini - Series

    To start off with they are moving "Sunny", "The League", "Legit" and "Kamau Bell" to FXX starting in September.

    I would also like to see these additions. BTW this press release was from 2012. Maybe we'll see them sometime this year.

    I got nothing. There are no channels left that I personally watch that I must have in HD. Sure, PAC12 is nice, but I can watch everything online using a family member's TWC account. OWN was the last channel I wanted for the wife :) She is happy, so I am happy.

    Usually a demand is followed by a "or else".

    What is your "or else"?

    Ovation, BBC World News, Logo would be much appreciated. I think we already have more than enough sport channels, IMO. I'm 72 and have never yet figured out why they appeal to people. You see one silly ballgame, you've seen them all.

    You see grown men jumping up and down after the put a ball in a hoop in their shorts, as if they had just discovered the cure to cancer.

    I don't understand the people who watch this boring stuff . It isn't like I am making $5 million for watching it, or even $5.00.

    Some people watch stuff I can't stand and I watch stuff others can't stand. Get over it.

    I'd much rather watch a grown man draw on a white board and make crazy conclusions and try to make them sound rational. Not.

    See, anyone can make fun of anything others like.

    Everyone can watch what they want that is a great thing compared to the 50s to where you had 3 channels and if the President was on you were screwed for that hour plus.
    I would love an ala carte however that would increase the bill probably.

    I added a notation, but I'll keep it GMC until June.

    Good get on HRTV!

    What is the correct name for the Philadelphia RSN then?

    I only see Pac-12 Network once. :confused:



    I need to do several updates to the list, and clean it up a little more. The 1Q snuck up on me and I was just trying to get it in there early in the thread.

    You can't stand anything that conflicts with liberal ideology. That's cool, you are typical.

    Well, the good news is I finally got some information from my local affiliate via their Facebook page. They are shooting for a Summer HD launch, so my hope is that DirecTV will offer them in HD from the start, thereby lessening my desire for the DNS feeds to go HD.

    So... this potentially means that after the next quarter thread, it's possible that all my Series Links will be in HD, and I will go strictly to a "any HD added is good with me" stance, and simply look forward to future HD launches. :)

    Crossing my fingers, and I know all of you are too, so that I won't talk about the DNS feeds as much anymore! :D

    The RSN is Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia, a.k.a. CSN Philly.

    Spillover games are carried on a "local origination" channel called The Comcast Network. Presumably, if DirecTV were to add CSN Philly, it would put TCN games onto an RSN alternate channel.
