I'm anticipating 4-6 new HD channels each of the next 3 months.
Sounds good but I like bigger Festivuses like 6/23.
So C-Span 3 is being added this month?
I can get Star Wars and Raiders added to my queue so they come to my house in the mail in a few days, but can't get them in 30 minutes since they're not available for streaming from Netflix.
And even if/when Netflix sends them to me, they won't be in HD.....because those titles are only currently available in SD.
On some, not all....the tradeoff was bringing many more titles from the signed studio's back catalogs to streaming.
I have NO idea...
The LAUNCH DATE for that channel is July... what providers offer it, and when is anybody's guess...
Hence my point...
Death and Taxes are!
About half of the movies I watch in HD on the premiums are not available on Blu-ray from Netflix. Priobably not on Blu-ray at all.
Movie fans have an appetite for the obscure, the offbeat, the cheesy, the bad, as well as the mainstream releases.
Sorry, no. I just checked two of the most recent titles I've seen in HD from DirecTV and neither is available from Netflix in Blu-ray.
So when's the next Festivus? Should I put my pole back in the basement?
i ever thought about it that way. Bet you know all the movie houses within 50 miles of your home, I'm not just talking about the huge cineplexes, but the small downtown screens.
I thank you also
Nice chart with tons of interesting details. If Dish wasn't so bad in customer service I probally would take another spin with them. The prem. movie diffrence is pretty obvious.
Sony lost all credibility on that front when they announced the removal of the ability to boot another OS. Imagine how happy the USAF was: they had just purchased several hundred PS3 for a computing cluster using that feature.
Future proof? I think not.
Funny, based on the noise from this tread you would think that AMC would be no. 1. Though a fan, didn't see Travel channel listed either. All the clamor over BET HD being added earlier in the year sorta shows why, by the numbers.
Alan seems that EPIX-HD and EPIX2 are on the same footing with Cineamax. As on Direct. Cineamax has a west coast feed only. Don't see the differnce.
Nail on the head for me too.
Same here. Have Redbox around the corner and can't stand waiting for 20 minutes plus to get a few new releases and the "same" movies playing on HBO, Starz, EPIX or maybe, rarely on Showtime.
