    I watched THREE of Season Six (I was planning on buying the Blu-ray set last year, but ended up not wanting to spend the money) last night.

    Between it and "Luther", I've been enjoying the channel GREATLY! :)

    I've been watching some starting with the 2005 stuff that I hadn't seen and going forward. All very good with all very good actors playing the different Doctors.

    A brilliant idea born of necessity. When William Hartnell's failing health forced him off the show, they came up with regeneration.

    Of course, Bewitched did it simpler.

    I was watching the Michigan/Alabama game and someone, on air, called for D* to add the Longhorn network.
    How about the Encore channels in HD that we don't have yet, except in SD.
    MavTV (there it is from me again)
    H2
    FMC


    I've been watching since the 3rd Doctor and I wasn't aware of that fact.

    Ah. Pertwee. First Doctor I saw but I didn't understand the show until Baker (Tom, of course, not tha imposter Colin).

    Not interested. All I need is the ESPN's plus BTN and I'm all set for college football. Unless someday a Michigan game was gonna be on Pac-12 (and I doubt there ever will be) I have no use for it.

    I'd much rather have HLN HD, ID HD, H2 HD, Sundance HD, IFC HD, and the missing Encore HD and Plex HD channels.

    Me either, although I haven't been watching that long at all. I'm busy catching up and will watch whatever of the pre-Eccleston(SP?) Doctor Who is available on Netflix.

    If the plan for PAC 12 and Big Ten to play every year weren't cancelled, you'd bet a Michigan game would wind up on PAC 12 Net.

    Remember, home teams own the rights.

    If Michigan plays Washington in Seattle, PAC 12 owns rights.

    not likely as big parts of the BIG TEN area don't have PAC12 on there cable systems and on the systems that it is on a lot of the out of area is in sports pack and SD only.

    The BIG TEN has a big network that is very wide and is backed by FOX.

    and what to say that BIG ten will not be able to get ROAD rights?

    I guess I don't have to worry about it then. :)

    Although it seems like almost every non-conference UM game is home. They gotta earn back the $226 million they recently spent on expanding The Big House.

    CLTV HD would be ... nice. CN100, I'd never heard of until your post. I looked it up and I'm not impressed.
    Tom Baker (the one with the long scarf) is the best and longest running Doctor. He's been on US tv, in bit parts, a couple of times. I wish the Beeb would rerun the classic episodes.

    Home teams own rights. The PAC 12 would never give up its rights to the road team.

    well if the NHL locks out it will be nice to have CN100 or for CSN to pick up the Wolves games.

    but the BIG ten is a big system and as part of there deal they can say that the games must be on a channel like FS / CSN or ESPN or a OTA channel.

    OR that they can have the rights to simulcast the pac12 feed.

    But it would be in the PAC 12's best interest to have an upper tier PAC 12/Big 10 matchup on ESPN/ABC or an upper tier PAC 12/SEC matchup on ESPN or CBS. They are going to go for the biggest audience possible if there is a premiere non-conference game.

    Games between the lower tier teams could end up on the PAC 12 network, just like the Vandy at Northwestern game is on the Big 10 network.
