And now Red Tails (2012) is on, it's like a whole new channel....
Yup, much better source material for this broadcast. Pity they enhanced it to fill the screen instead of it's original aspect ratio of 2.39:1. Other than that, not bad.
Better source material to begin with, like modern HD all the way. The audio is worth the HD upgrade...it uses all of my speakers, not just the center channel like the old movies do.
what packages are FXM and Discovery Family in. i have 2 of the 5 new HD channels in my package from the looks of things, i got RFD and AHC HD but i don't get FXM HD and Discovery Family in HD but still got FXM and Discovery Family in inglorious SD as i get a 721 message/slate instead.
I was wondering the same. Can get 258 SD but not 258 HD. Did a receiver refresh but no help.
They're both in Xtra and higher. There is a free preview of Xtra going on right now, but since the HD feeds went live today after the preview started they might not have been added to it like the SD feeds already were.
As for POP HD, as of yesterday's map it wasn't in test mode. But there are some other signs that a CBS deal is close to being, if not already renewed. Like CW On Demand being added in test mode.
I have preferred Xtra and cannot get FXM HD either. I have AHC HD though.
EDIT: Never mind. Refresh service apparently fixed it.
I,m glad you got it.
I like cw in demand.
Try watching Lawrence of Arabia in HD
While that may be true on the audio, film is better than any digital from a picture quality standpoint as source material. The issue is in how well they did the transfer, or if they will do a good one again someday.
Old movies vary widely in quality. The ones that have been restored and released on Blu Ray often look fabulous on DirecTV channels when they use the new version. But some providers don't have the new version, or no pristeen version exists.
FXM so far is a disappointment but we'll see...
This is great. People have been whining to get this channel added for so long and now that it's here, all it's generating is a ***** fest. Just another sign o' the times.
Well said Sangs, well said!!!!!!!

This is at least a mini Festivus.
I’m quite pleased with the additions. FXM has been on my wishlist for a while! Awesome
