    Go to directv timeline. Turn on posts by others and search for BBC and you will find it. No idea how to get link to post. Charles is either great or he is fired.

    Anyway. This still fits with my feeling from earlier. Still only a feeling but the post fits.

    Cool, that will only leave H2 and DIY and HLN on my "watch every week" list.

    "Charles" has been on their FB team awhile - it might be pretty legit.

    Besides Bein Sports, BBC America and NatGeoWild are the 2 channels I'd envision watching the most so this could be GREAT news!!!

    As I said, it doesn't contradict my feeling, which was that good news was coming around mid August. And this is good news around mid August.

    I poked around the Facebook page. Charles was saying he had no information on BBCA as recently as Thursday. In Sunday he is saying it is coming.

    Or rather hope this "double bill" really doesn't turn out to be just an illusion like that targ was in the episode "Where No One Has Gone Before" (season 1 ep. 6, Stat Trek TNG). :lol:

    Something in the back of my mind.....didn't DirecTV just lose the guy who was infamous for saying late last year that we had more than enough basic HD? If so, wonder if there's any connection between this and the dam finally cracking, if not breaking?

    If it's really happening, we can have the targ roast at my place! :lol:


    Now....where's The Longhorn Network? :icon_lol:

    I was expecting more hd this year due to technology improvements. It appears that the new encoders that we have talked about here are the new tech. Despite some claiming directv has had plenty of bandwidth, they did not regard what they had as plenty. The ability to put 6 channels on a transponder appears to have opened the door a bit and made them comfortable enough to add some more.

    Correction, Sir! :lol:

    This is good news early-August about fine events happening mid-August! :D




    tony- This isn't meant to 'correct' you or twit you in any way. Just me playing with words and meanings, hoping you and a few others break a smile.....


    Also, the maxim about chicken counts and eggs opening is good to keep in mind....

    I am keeping it in mind. That's why I am commenting only on not seeing a contradiction. I (we) have no confirmation yet. But it is a good source.

    And the good news is when the channels are live. This is just the tidings of good news.

    Well, mid August could mean the festivus flag will go up either the 15th or 22d. Ah, the hope of something to come again. :jumpingja

    More than just those 2, but yes those channels coming very soon (less than 2 weeks if all goes well). D* will continue to add HD to the lineup moving forward.
