    I think Satelliteracer also deserves a VERY VERY BIG thank you, cause I am sure he helped in some ways to get AMC HD added!!! :) ;)

    Thank you for giving credit exactly where credit is due. I'm only a messenger, a role I enjoy. SatelliteRacer does many good things for DIRECTV customers.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Strongly concur! H2's new programming appears very interesting and, given its 48th-place ratings, maybe DirecTV can obtain this channel “on the cheap” a la Shorts HD (or so I assume).

    I'm afraid Directv will be VERY selective on the new HD channels from now on.
    I don't expect any more "shorts-like" because they need to use the space wisely.

    I wonder why so many people want BBCA so bad. Doesn't it have just one series, really, Doctor Who? I haven't watched BBCA in a long long time, though, so I don't know. I do know there's a lot of reality and USA programming now on there.

    I think BBC America might be telling porkies. They said the exact same thing when BBCA HD was launched, yet no-one carried it for a long time. On their forums they avoided answering any question related to those "signed deals".

    Yes, indeed. Tom, Sixto and, of course, Satelliteracer … everyone who deserves the credit … I appreciate them.

    Some good news from Endgadget;

    While DirecTV may tossing an old standard def look on the new DirecTiVo, beta testers got a treat tonight (even better than news AMC HD is on the way) when their boxes downloaded a brand new user interface. It's the HD UI that was mentioned during the last earnings call, and brings not only fully 16x9 formatted graphics but also, according to testers, a serious performance boost to satellite receivers. If you're in the test group restart your box and punch 0,2,4,6,8 to snag the new software and have a look for yourself, but if you're on the outside looking in hit the source link for one of DBSTalk's typical thorough walkthrough PDFs.

    Perhaps we need a new poll on which HD channels we could happily lose. Shorts, west coast movie channel feeds, obscure sports stations, msnbc or foxnews (depending), etc.

    ...Although I suspect that DirecTV can get that data from tuning/favorites list info
