    Criticizing AMC for showing commercials is akin to criticizing SpikeTV for not showing country music videos. It publicly made the decision to not be the same channel it was.

    Back in late winter or early spring there was an announcement that Directv would add The Pentagon Channel in HD in September.
    My personal take is that they wont add just AMC and not the other channels in that ownership group. Yes, I would very much like AMC in HD.

    I'm pretty certain we will know the channel before the 7th. I'm also expecting the testing will be before the 7th. I don't know if it will be a full week or if it will be on the 6th (or unlikely, the 7th.)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Okay, I have officially reached the boiling point. Just say it's AMC. I don't want to be the poster you are secretly laughing at.

    A really nice birdie told me the expected channel, too. No, it wasn't Tom, a mod, a former mod, or SR. Just a nice and knowledgeable person.

    I'm thankful for the channel.

    Tom and Sigma, thanks for the entertainment you've brought to this thread. I'm looking forward to the grand reveal like many other people, but the reactions from those going nuts in waiting has provided boundless comedy. :lol: Keep dangling those carrots

    It is pretty funny. Even if I didn't know, then I'd still be glad something is added.

    By the way, there's a few others who post here who know, also. It's definitely not just Tom and myself. The only reason I said I knew was because the birdie said I could.

    It seems supers are always looking for "kickbacks" here. Way back in 1995 I once gave a super $300 dollars under the table in exchange for being able to get an apartment I wanted even though he claimed 3 other people who viewed it before me all wanted it also. Whether he was lying or not Ill never know but I did get the apartment.

    I'd of appreciated if his kickback asking was legit, in which he said there were no dishes on the roof to begin with...to which was a lie.. and i went up with the tech from Halstedt and they did the install much to his cha-grin..He was upset I went upstairs to look..so I am supposed to take your word as gospel meanwhile kickback makes you a picture of innocence huh...???? oh fyi he has since been replaced...the tenants that paid for the other dishes blew up his cover and was sent packing..

    Given that then changing their name to American Media Classics as I posted earlier would be more appropriate. ;)
