    If we get AMC, I promise I change my Avatar. Tango will be over as far as I concern.

    I believe Alan is the only one I can remember posting that he wants HUB (although I would like it too). So I wouldn't think it would be considered a popular request here.

    Edit/ I just checked the old poll and I guess 125 people did vote for wanting it so that could be seen as somewhat popular, but at number 17 on the list I don't know if it's popular enough. I would hope it would be more like one of the top 5 or 10 on the list (or maybe one not even on the list).

    Tom, any chance you can tell us wherabouts on the list this new channel is? Top 5, Top 10, Top 20, not even on there :)

    Or maybe even a funny hint leading to a number? Like what was the maximum number of Doc Brown's Deloreans in Hill Valley at the same moment in time?

    Good for Dish. Discuss it in the appropriate topic, http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=196096 , where no one seems to care either, judging by the 5 total posts.

    I would like Hub HD, not as much as TCM, ACM, or DIY, but I'd like it.

    Sorry, just rode in...

    Did I hear correctly that we need to get the Festivus poll out for September 7, for one potential channel?

    Has anyone suggested EPIX HD?

    For the hell of it, here's three out of left field: CSPAN HD; gmc HD; TBN HD.

    If it turns out to be only one channel, it should be a very short pole!

    It's not about the size of the pole; it's the quality of the channel. ;)

    Depends on the person... :D


    I'll be excited by AMC-HD, BBC America, or CW HD-DNS (doubtful, but with the Fall season starting up, I'm complaining about the lack of it more). Even though there are other channels I want, those are the only three that would excite me enough to even remotely call it a Festivus... if you can call one channel a Festivus. :)

    It sounds crazy but I lived in UK for many years and never liked BBC. I know BBC-A is different and perhaps I start watching something if it is the chosen one. I am confident the next Mad Men season will be in full, wonderful HD, though.

    No, it won't. AMC does not provide full, wonderful HD. They provide bitstarved pixelated HD.

    Yep. People are so starved for basic HD, they'll take ANYTHING, ANY STATION, and bring out the all the festivus poles they have.

    I don't know. I am still thinking its going to be BBC America HD, or indeed as others suggested maybe AMC HD.

    A "festivus" in my opinion would be the launch of 5-10 channels. I wouldn't call one channel even a MINI-festivus.

    Just a channel addition. Regardless of what it is, we'll all be ready to complain about what it is not on Wednesday.

    I am not saying anything. Just saying that AMC HD is not full, wonderful HD.
