This was my 1st love of wanted BBCA in HD way back When
It's a shame that this channel isn't on one of the 99/101/110 satellites. Most of the programming is in English and the nightly international mysteries have subtitles. I can receive it OTA on a subchannel which has poorer resolution than Directv SD (if that is possible). It's SD, so shouldn't take up much bandwidth with MPEG4 compression.
Don't anyone answer. It would mean the end of the universe!
Did not know that.
He's not just a doctor... He's THE Doctor! The definite article, you might say.
I not going to answer but changed my avatar, which might offer a hint.
Whovians popup all over. And all ever.
Never could get into Doctor Who, but love Torchwood which I saw in HD at my niece house. Will give Doctor a second look.
Yes great idea! Thx
That was done earlier today: LINK
From twitter...@ESPN_Pac12blog: "Pac-12 Network's Gary Stevenson said he doesn't expect to have deals with satellite carriers in advance of Aug. 15 launch.
Yeah just saw that thx!
I also welcome The Doctor.
I would also welcome some of the original 1960's episodes.
It's fun to watch the bad acting and camera work.
I'm sure some of the B/W episodes would look pretty good in HD.
Even if only upconverted.
The first episode "An Unearthly Child" was interesting because it shows the beginning.
I haven't checked lately but it used to be avaliable on Netflix.
Still are. All but Miracle Day which is still on starz on demand.
I remember back in the earlier days of Directv when a new channel was gonna be added, you would see it in the guide.
It would say for example
305 IONEHD begins 8/15 @ 6am and sometimes it would also air a preview loop of the channel.
I wish Directv would go back to doing that.
well that really does not work for a channel adding a HD feed.
they did do that for MLB network any one have a video of the count down?
Are there technical obstacles to so doing? (I understand there are a lot of other factors suggesting it's not a good idea to do that today.)
Aah... the good ol' days...
I still remember when WGN (back when it was WB! programming) was shown in the guide prior to launching. I remember being so happy to get that channel...
They could always do a banner announcing a channel coming 8/15.
I think DirecTV 7s proved to DirecTV that announcing things in advance isn't the best idea with the mentality of a lot of people out there, though...
