    TCM?? TCM??

    And I thought I already had too many movie choices to ever possibly watch.

    I've had a tough few days at work and this really brightens my Monday!

    Never watch TCM but I will gladly take any new basic HD, Here's hoping some more basic isn't too far behind. H2, Cooking would be my top 2 choices

    TCM, BBCA, IFC and Sundance in HD please. Scratch the TCM request if it indeed does goes live soon.

    Would also like to see a National PBS HD feed for those that still do not have a local HD PBS.

    Thanks... I accidentally clicked on the 2010 poll and realized it wasn't right. I got busy and didn't do a search for the 2011 poll... I forgot it was in your signature! ;)

    I knew it was one of the top ones...

    Dripping...
    I wonder if the AMC dispute over at Dish might have any impact on DIRECTV adding some of the 'missing' national HD channels quicker? I know I see a number of posts from folks saying they wouldn't switch because there's too many channels that DIRECTV doesn't have that Dish has. Getting channels like TCM, BBCA, H2, DYI, etc might make DIRECTV more attractive to those folks.

    Nice thought, but if you take DirecTV's word for it, they already have everything they need... :rolleyes:

    If I was with Dish Network, I certainly wouldn't change... AMC, ABC Family, and Disney XD, and my local PBS affiliate are the only four channels I'd miss, and I'd gain considerably more channels I'd like to have...

    Finally! TCM is being added in HD! A channel that requires more than a few brain cells to watch. TCM was #4 on our list behind H2, BBC America, and NatGeo Wild. All that has been added lately in HD are channels that all they show are reality based junk.

    Is there a plan for 2012 poll? (My apologies if this has been previously discussed).

    Yes TCM HD. Cool. Not one of the ones I really wanted, but I'm happy for those who do.

    Still trying to figure out where Nat Geo Wild and Fox Movie Channel is since the new Fox contract was signed in October of last year.

    I agree with both. I'd love to have BBC World News, Al Jazeera English, France24, CBC Newsworld, something! H2 in HD would be awesome, since that's where they shifted the, um, history-themed History Channel programming :D.
