    Uh. Think that was SR code for "it ain't true" for at least now. Very much like his comments about comedians reporting Epix on Directv.

    I know hat NGW is beautiful. Have it of fios. Don't watch much of it but it is welcome. BBCA for me means no longer buying amazon episodes for Doctor Who and probably watching more stuff than I watch now.

    I can't speak for everyone, but for me, it depends on the channel.

    DirecTV added AMC-HD on September 9th, you say? Well, by them doing that, I was able to watch "The Walking Dead" season two and "Hell On Wheels" from the pilot episode through to the season finale. I'm an HD snob... I would have skipped both otherwise.

    By DirecTV adding BBCA-HD this month, my hope is that I will hopefully be able to catch up by watching season six prior to season seven starting as I had intended on watching season six on Blu-ray, but by the time it was out, I couldn't really spare the money for it... so yeah, I'm very excited by this. :)


    While my CW HD-DNS wish has something of a timetable preference on it (I usually only watch "Hart Of Dixie" on it in SD) as I'd like to start some of the series premiering in October from the start (especially "Arrow"), I can't exactly say the same for my TV Land HD wish as I usually watch it SD anyway, so it doesn't really have a preference, just a enhanced anticipation.

    TCM-HD however mattered very little when I got it. I'm glad I was able to record "No Time For Sergeants" (which I haven't actually watched yet), but it's just something I tune into from time to time instead of programming that I actually follow. As I stated, outside of CW HD-DNS and BBCA-HD, and to a much lesser extent, TV Land HD, all of my NATIONAL HD channel wants fall into that timetable preference.

    Ditto... three of my top five here within 12 months as well.

    That's an AMAZING number for me considering that during the year 2011, I only got ONE (1) HD channel near the top of my list... but it sucked on a locally as I lost CW-HD and ABC-HD (luckily I still had ABC HD-DNS).

    2010 was a little better as I gained several channels that weren't on the top of my list, but pretty high up (Lifetime, Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movie Channel, and to a lesser extent, Sony Movie Channel and Encore, as the latter encouraged me to upgrade to Total Choice Ultimate for a time), and most of all, I got my locals in HD!! :)

    2009 sucked with only one HD channel added that I had any slight interest at all in (Comedy Central), but 2008 wasn't bad thanks to ABC Family that was near the top of my list.


    Moral of the story... even numbered years appear to be the best for me! ;)

    Yep... TruTVHD, E!HD, and NGWHD aren't my cups of tea, but it's always easier to be happy for those that do when one is given some of their wants as well (!Devil_lol). I give a lot of credit to DirecTV for quelling many of the biggest complaints here within these last 12 months. I'm looking forward to the possibilities of more quelling! :D

    That's more my definition of a Festivus! :D

    Wait... more this month, or just more coming soon?!

    I counted 3 winks a few pages back, so my guess is that there is one more launching with BBCAmerica and NatGeoWild. :)

    Complaint about up converts and stretching. I still complain about History when they show older programs.

    I've been jokingly against BBCA forever, but I might actually watch the new show called Copper. I watched an episode of Luther and enjoyed it...maybe BBCA isn't so bad.

    The thing that interests me, Derek Chang has been blasted in the past about the lack of BBCA, and it seems he has been involved in this coming this month for a while. Thanks to Mr. Chang for getting this done.

    Too little an amount for CW HD-DNS (no matter how much a recent guide data snafu has me wishing it was), so I'll keep my fingers crossed for TV Land HD.

    There will hopefully be a separate thread for that! ;)

    No matter, I'm sure there will be missing channel anticipation for some time to come... but the more of the more popular ones (here) that they add, it just won't be as busy of a thread. :)

    Besides, plenty of other stuff to complain about! :D
