    Well, Dish is gonna get the Sony Movie channel in HD soon, and we still sit here with nada, nice...

    Maybe Satracer's not been on the site for a few days because he's tied up with dance lessons.

    ...- .....
    She used to host Attack of the Show. I don't watch it often, but she hasn't been on recently. She has moved on to bigger and better things.

    I do follow a show, on that network, called It's Effin' Science.

    Olivia Munn plays "Chess Roberts" in IRON MAN 2. She is definitely a hottie!

    Anyone who thinks DirecTV's HD efforts have been a disaster need to look up the word in the dictionary. A profitable company is not a disaster.

    Don't you get enough with Robin Meade?
    Oh, wait ... nevermind.

    BTW: It gives old meaning to "I googled her". :)

    I have been out of the country for a bit and just got back. Have any new HD's been added since the batch that included Hallmark and a handful of movie channels or are we still waiting for another dose? Tried to just skim the postings but I can't seem to tell for sure.

    Is there is a specific thread thats just a list of dates & "New Channels added" I can bookmark so I can make sure I'm caught up? Still personally think they should change the software so that whenever a "New" channels is added it automatically is put into any favorites list. That way I would know when its there and I can decide to remove it if I wish.

    Perfect example of why these threads devolve into uselessness.

    The fact that a specific poster doesn't care about channels added doesn't require the continued posting of "Well, I don't care that channel X was added because *I* don't care about it."

    Someone does, and there were Q3 additions. Just because they weren't the channels you're waiting on doesn't qualify them as not worthy of addition.

    Coca Cola Kid, this wasn't directed at you, just the general tone of the thread the last few days. :D

    Well for people that like soccer I'm glad they're happy. I like movies and they added a bunch of premiums this year so I'll continue enjoying them and hope they add more in Q4.

    Mine was ... which is a good example of why one should quote posts so if the prior post is removed it doesn't look like one jumped in to post random facts that were not a reply.

    Mr Kid suggested that there had been zero additions this quarter. That is what I replied to.

    Was thinking that there might be a TEST channel or two today (typically one Wednesday prior), in prep for next Wednesday.

    Still always a chance for later in the week, but nothing yet.

    My mistake, I forgot about the soccer channels. Okay that's 2 and a half.

    And 1 PPV movie shouldn't count as a channel, D* said so themselves in one of their attack ads.

    And 3DTV is a "niche market", D* said so themselves.

    People can talk profitability, negotiations, blah, blah, blah all they want. If you look at that list and tell me that after all the waiting and anticipation for D12 to be working you're ok with that, then hats off to you. All I know is every time I see a channel that tells me "HD Where Available" and I have to watch it in fog-o-vision I get a little more annoyed.

    If they want to add some channels to HD Extra Pack, fine, but a BBCHD, AMCHD, etc thrown in would go along ways with some of the folks on these boards. They've had plenty of time to work on agreements, and if you can't ace your dance lessons after the amount of time they've had since D12 has been in the air, you shouldn't get married in the first place.
