This thread jumped the shark long ago.
beIN HD is on at 620 now if anybody cares.
They seem to be having a little problem fine tuning the HD for the Equador - Chile game. Kind of fuzzy.
any new when ion come on.
You wouldn't want to have to stop anticipating, now, would you?
Not that it should be a surprise to anyone but no HD VOD content has shown up on these new additions VOD channels.
Consider what they show does not constitute a sport, that channel has nothing to do with being the leader in sports.
Thanks D* .. some nice new HD adds that should make alot happy in here. Even Ion and I voted for that one back in the poll maybee a yr ago.. Its funny cuz I never cared for bbc in HD but seemed like many wanted it but I have gangs of new york on bbc on tonight.. ive been with direct about 4 yrs now and i am a happy customer. ...
Universal Sports has each stage of the Giro d'Italia and the Vuelta a Espana cycling races. The only network carrying them in the U.S., so yes, Universal Sports in HD would be great. The Vuelta starts Saturday
You don't have to actually...Bend Broadband HAS had Universal Sports HD for a few months now, on Ch 645:
So they added Al Jazeera's sport channel now when will we get Al Jazeera's new channel? Might as well go all the way.
i'm all for universal sports hd and pac-12 hd
Personally, I would definitely prefer the Al Jazeera English news channel to another sport channel. Al Jazeera news in English is excellent and would be a great addition to Directv. The only thing comparable to it currently is the BBC news block on BBCA but it is unfortunately only aired in the early morning.
Wow things look so much better in HD. Everything should have been in HD by now. I know, I know.
And speaking of BBCA.....their program schedule for the next weeks certainly lacks much variety unless one is a Doctor Who, Star Trek TNG, Gordon Ramsey or Top Gear fan. Those programs are fine but why is there nothing else scheduled? I was originally a BBCA viewer but gave up on them when the video quality became so poor. I didn't realize that their range of programming had become so limited. The BBC TV archives are huge, so why is so little of it being utilized for BBCA???
BSG looked good on BBCA today

• ION West moved to Channel 306

I didn't see beIN Sport, Pac-12 Networks, or any other new HD channels listed but I might have missed it feel free to look over the issue at the above PDF link.
Well, now that they've finally brought BBC-A and NatGeo Wild in HD to DirecTV, I can officially stop complaining about channel selection. They have everything I watch with any regularity at all in HD. Sure, there are some outliers I currently watch only rarely that I would like to see in HD, but then I'd like every channel to be in HD. But, as Stephen Wright says, "You can't have everything... Where would you put it?"
I hope DirecTV continues to add more and more HD as soon as they possibly can in order to please all of you out there that are still missing channels in HD that you consider vital. For now, I'm a pretty happy camper. Thanks, DirecTV!
they also run a top gear marathon that weekend.
