    A friend from high school said he was a Noble Peace Prize winner and a famous notable alumni on our high school's Wiki site.It was there about a year. That's a credible site to you? Writing a research paper and citing Wiki will get you laughed out of a professor's office. It's a great site for a lot of information, but my academic side makes me see it differently.


    We are doing research papers here? When there are billions of pieces of information, you can cite examples of nonsense everywhere. Besides, a high school wiki site is NOT Wikipedia.

    Wikipedia is only as good as the editors who monitor each page. Some topics are highly monitored ... others have errors that last for years. Look for sources for facts on the pages and find sources you can trust. Sometimes the Wiki editors find sources that a simple Google/Bing can't find.

    I would not use Wikipedia as a source - but it can help find sources. Then cite the real source.

    Uf you find any that claim a new channel will be on DirecTV check the source. :)

    I know. But … everything has to come in, eventually. (That's referring to a complete HD channels lineup, apparently with the goal to be by and/or in 2016.) Perhaps the overall feelings conveyed would be more optimistic had these three been mixed in elsewhere, for prior high-def addition dates, and that the three about to come in (as you listed) would be more exciting. (Just a quick guess.)

    The Vuelta A Espana starts on August 24. Can we have Universal Sports in HD by then?

    I don't want to make this a "my sport is better than yours". That said, I'd say swimming and, especially, track and field, have better audience than cycling - Tour the France aside. And swimming world's over and track and field world's over this coming week. So if Universal HD wasn't added for the swimming or track and field world championships, I'd say chances are we won't get it until at least closer to Sochi Olympics.

    I was a USA Swimming national certified referee for more than 20 years, so I appreciate the other sports on Universal Sports, but going back to when NBC Sports Network was OLN (before Versus and when all three Grand Tours were on the same network), the Grand Tours drew more viewers than anything else OLN showed at the time. The Grand Tours are to cycling what the Triple Crown is to horse racing. People who know absolutely nothing about the sport will watch those three events. The Grand Tours have the added advantage of spectacular scenery, and the announcers do take time (much to the chagrin of the true cycling fans) to point out the historical sights along the route of the race. That said, the Tour de France is analogous to the Kentucky Derby, the Giro d'Italia to the Belmont, and the Vuelta a Espana to the Preakness, but even the third most popular of the grand tours draws a large number of viewers.

    Question:

    Prior to the launch of D14, in 2014, does anyone suppose we may get more basic-cable programmers' linear HD? (This is going beyond the coming additions of QVC HD, Galavision HD, ESPN Deportes HD, and beIN Sport Espanol HD.) If so, how many?
    A. One
    B. Two or three
    C. Four or Five
    D. Six or more

    Totally underwhelming additions to the HD lineup, as a whole.

    That's because we really already have gotten 90% of what people really wanted in 2013. We've already beaten 2012 in HD additions by a mile. And not to beat a dead horse but..... bottom, barrel, etc. There really isn't that much left.
