    They could. Prior to the launch of HD, many of the SD movie channels were in Dolby Digital. My first DirecTV receiver was an RCA with DD output circa 1999. All channels were SD, but there were a few channels with DD sound.

    ....And SD could be widescreen and in much higher resolution than the over-compressed mess that is supplied by Directv. They've made a lot of progress with their HD additions but their SD still stinks.

    Just wondering how many HD additions we'll see this quarter. I'm guessing just 2 or 3. Would like to see Reelz HD, Military Channel HD, and FMC/FXM HD. Maybe a hint will follow soon?

    I hope when SR said more Q3 that it's more than these...

    Maybe at least DirecTV didn't give QVC an EasyPay option.
