    Thanks for the info! Can you show me a source from Viacom about Nick Jr. HD, please?

    There's more to it than that, and more are in test. Yes, the fun days after the launch of D10 are over, but more are getting added.

    Noticed that Pivot is labeled PIVT in the guide, even though the guide has enough character positions to spell the whole thing out "PIVIOT" Maybe they abbreviated it so there's room to add HD after it... PIVTHD? Never heard of Pivot but you can watch it in HD online after authenticating with DirecTV.

    I would love to see Nick JR in HD. My daughter watches it and when we downloaded some of the shows from Nick Jr HD on demand, the quality was really good. Hope we get it in HD before she grows out of it.

    So where is QVC, Galavision, and PBTV HD at? They've been in test for some time now.

    I don't know how he could know, if these guys here at DBS Talk haven't said. from what I understand Directv hates satelliteguys/Scott and last I knew refused to work with them.

    Got an email from DirecTV to watch Britain's number 1 game show "The Chase" on GSN.

    Uh No DirecTV... GSN is in overcompressed SD. The picture quality is so poor I wouldn't be caught dead watching it, number 1 or not.

    Been banned from that place. You can say all you want downing Directv, but don't ever say anything bad about Dish.

    You wanna talk Dish go there. You wanna talk DirecTV come here. Ford vs Chevy. Pepsi vs Coke. Six of one, half a dozen of the other. Back to topic...

    With DirecTV heavily promoting a new game show on GSN, do you think GSN is destined to go HD this year? I get the full screen promo when launching the iPad app, got it in email and they also posted it on Facebook. If the show was #1 overseas and they are hyping it so much, wouldn't airing it in HD aid that marketing campaign?

    It should have been in HD the day it launched.

    DirecTV has heavily promoted the Reelz Channel before. Complete with a specific DirecTV jingle ("Channel 238, That is Reelz Channel!"). How's that working out?

    All the way back in 1994?

    Remember, not everyone refuses to watch something simply because it's not in HD.
