Insults are a no no sir. Let's not get ridiculous. It's HDfan, not HDfanatic. First of all...you clearly didn't understand my comment. It has nothing to do with "different tastes". If someone claims to have actually have all 29 of the new channels added since D12 went live, it means they have the Premium package and HD package both, since a number of these channels included different premium movie channels, in addition to other HD channels that are not movie channels. That costs a fair amount of optional channel $$$. In that context, claiming to have watched 10 minutes of all 29 channels (and paying for HD service and the Premium service), and then to state they have only used only 10 minutes of viewing time among all that content....yes...that would seem like a waste of money to alot of folks. Thena gain, as I also stated earlier...it's their money. The reality in the OP about BBC HD was that there was a point being made, even though it was done via an exaggeration - the poster prefers BBC programming more than any other channels, and would like to see BBC HD. I "got it" the first time - apparently a few others didin't. We get it....I get it....the OP loves his BBC, and wants BBC HD. Nothing wrong with that whatsoever. The statement that they would sacrifice all other HD channels and content to get that one channel was certainly an opinion, and one they were entitled to like anyone else. But claiming to have Premium service, and HD service, and watch a total of 10 minutes in total was an over-the-top exageration to make the point about enjoying the BBC channel - it still makes no sense, no matter how you slice it (especially if someone actually had all 29 of those channels as they claim). What is obvious as well is that there seem to be a group of about 6-8 channels that many posters are hoping for (based on repeated posts to that effect)....BBC HD among them. It would be good to satisfy their preferences in viewing. It seems quite clear that AMC HD, BBC HD, DIY, and others are popular new HD channel preferences.
