    Or the fact they lost 52,000 customers and don't want to lose anymore. :sure:

    Wow! ... great news! :hurah:

    And hope the technical quirk is still working on the HR34, so I can view the early test feeds once they go up on the bird(s). :D

    They are not that reactionary nor do things happen that fast. SR told you it was in the works for some time and that fits with what I had heard about waiting for new tech to add anything substantial.

    I was kidding, hence the smilely face. I'm glad more HD is coming. :)

    I know, but I signed up a year ago and it was free to me then! Frankly if he didn't want it again, we wouldn't have it as I'm not all that humped up over pro football. I can see more than I want on other channels.

    And if the game just has to be seen, I can see the delayed screening on the NFL channel.

    Just sayin'!! :)

    I thought they did the regular season games too. Shows you how much I watch football! :)

    Give me golf or boxing and I'm good to go.

    Well, except for Olympics boxing! What a farce! Piss poor judging and even worse refereeing in all to many fights. And I'm an exciteable type, you know the kind that jumps up in the chair and yells at the TV. I've already called my heart doctor and told him to warm up another stent 'cause I'll probably need it before the Olympics is over!! :lol:

    I wouldn't expect much from TNG in HD on BBCA. They don't have the version from the Blu Ray. There would be a riot here I think if QVC HD were added.

    Yep...I think that's fair.

    All kidding aside, does anyone know when the ESPN contract is renegotiated?

    I think I have seen it mention as sometime next year. I think that they should offer long horn, but since it is so far beyond niche market even for sports, make it an a la cart channel, even at 10 a month. Then at least you'd have the option...

    Extremely niche. Don't think anyone offers it out of market in HD.
