    My Wish List (I have Mas Ultra)

    ESPN Deportes HD
    Fox Deportes HD
    Telemundo HD

    It is almost a sin that these two sports channels (ESPND &FOXD) are not in HD on Directv when even some lowly cable companies offer it.

    Also I would like to see added to Spanish package..,

    ESTRELLA TV SD
    De Pelicula's SD
    De Peliculas Classic SD
    Cine Mexico SD

    I also would like to see FOX News HD,BET HD and TVLand Hd added to Mas Ultra english line-up.

    Probably not. (I have no info.) If I were doing it, I'd move the channels first then add/move others.

    Dont forget NBCSN. Now they have the premier league. I dont understand why you have to get lo maximo package in order to receive that channel. I have mas ultra and sports pack. I dont want to spend 65 dollars just for one channel. I am already paying 12.99 just for bein in HD

    NBCSN is in HD as are the Premier League overflow channels. Couldn't you do Choice Extra in English and pay $15 a month extra for the En Español add on? Then it would be $15 per month more instead of $60.

    Definitely agree re Fox Deportes and ESPN Deportes. I would add GolTV and Bein Ñ to the list. Telemundo may not be as crucial since a lot of people have the local Telemundo affiliate in HD as a local. Same goes for Estrella in SD. (Don't mean to be insensitive to those who do not.)

    $21 (choice xtra cost more than mas ultra), still think it's too much for one channel,, i know i would get many more channels,, but it doesnt do it for me,, maybe they can rearrange the line up, it seems that directv has always given all possible soccer to spanish programing costumers.

    No doubt, QVC and Playboy are money makers for DTV. Additional revenue from these sources will (hopefully) help keep price increases to a minimum, and help finance further HD additions later. Galavision will be a big draw for the Spanish-language audience, as well as be an additional Olympics outlet.

    I would like to see DTV fill out the Premiums in HD, and offer some reduced-price bundles. I'm currently getting HBO/Showtime; I would add Cinemax/Starz if the cost was reduced.

    I would love to see Sundance in HD; I'm hoping they don't move Sundance/IFC to the Extra Pack tier. I don't really care a lick about sports, although if I could get just the Mets I might pop for the season.

    One channel that I would like to see on DTV that I haven't seen on anybody else's list is Blaze TV (Glenn Beck's channel). But that's just me. ;-)

    Pivot's not in HD, however their VOD selection on 1267 is in HD. Currently they have episodes of Farscape, Friday Night Lights and some other shows available.
