    Anyone else in here watch the Outdoor Channel or Sportsman Channel? I'd like to see those in HD. I'm really surprised we don't have those yet being both are in the sports pack.

    I knew I should have looked more closely at the other pages of this thread.

    Same here,don't know for sure but I don't imagine these would cost D that much to add them or maybe they think it would be wasted space taken up on a transponder.

    Not likely. Shorts doesn't appeal to everyone; no channel or program does.

    We get your disdain and dislike of it, so can you stop already??

    I took it as a small challenge to beat this. :) I found Ferdinand Gottschalk (born Feb 28, 1858) in 'Grand Hotel' being shown on August 10th.

    Many actors past and present were born in other countries (Errol Flynn-Australia, Catherine Zeta Jones-Wales, William Shatner-Canada, Vivien Leigh-England).

    And hundreds, if not thousands, of others. And more are born every day!

    My point was to create two categories of earliest born actors.
