    Funny, usually XXX drives the technology. VHS tapes won partly because of XXX. The internet thrives because of XXX.

    Oh, wait, you meant it just as "fill in the name."

    Nevermind.

    Ion only carries one first run series I am aware of and that's flashpoint and the new and final season doesn't start till next year I believe.

    My want list is down to three channels. And I only watch one program on each of the channels.

    The Hub - My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic
    HLN - Morning Express with Robin Meade
    G4 - Attack of the Show (although without Kevin Pereira, I doubt it's any good anymore)

    Ion HD has some excellent PQ...checked out the test channel and Flashpoint was on. Very crisp.

    Agreed;

    Was looking at the movie "Black Dog" earlier on the test channel. Very good picture quality I thought. :)

    Well, some of the old "babushka" generation did. My grandmother would have a case of the vapors when Baron Scicluna cheated and the ref didn't see it (which, of course, the ref never did).

    The only remaining channels I'd really like are news channels: CNN Headline News, C-SPAN, C-SPAN2 and NewsMix.

    OK, maybe TVland, just because SD is so badly compressed.

    CSPAN. Because we want our greedy, corrupt Elephants and Donkeys in full HD. :D
