    Very Sorry for your loss Alan...:( Been there myself several times and it's not the same afterwards when a beloved one passes away. It's like a part of you goes with them. Hope everyone is doing well.

    BBC axed the Confidentials this season because of funding. A lot of fans of the show really don't like them that much by what i see at some of the U.K. DW forums.

    I back up Maartena, while you may think that Universal Sports only replays Olympic items, that's not true. They cover many of USA Swimming Grand Prix events, they have great winter sports coverage of skiing and snowboarding, including many international events. I would put US at #3 on my wish list behind The Pac 12 and DIY HD.

    Since you are at it, can you also post a list of what IS in HD on DirecTV, but NOT on TWC NY?

    And Premiums are also HD, fyi.

    So back to topic - anticipating....

    It's clear that DirecTV is back on the "we offer more HD than others" messaging again...so perhaps we'll see another 2,3,4 more HD channels by year end.
