    DIY shows air on HGTV HD on the weekends. They're owned by the same company.

    I'd like to get IFC HD before Todd Margaret starts up again in January.

    Good call. I doubt we'll get IFCHD by then but I'll deal with SD in order to watch that show.

    AMC HD was added on a Friday, Sept. 9, 2011.

    Usually it is Wednesdays that see new channel additions. What remains in 2011 are the following:

    11.09.2011
    11.16.2011
    11.23.2011
    11.30.2011
    12.07.2011
    12.14.2011
    12.21.2011
    12.28.2011

    Just in case I should now consider Fridays, what remains after this week are as follows:

    11.11.2011
    11.18.2011
    11.25.2011
    12.02.2011
    12.09.2011
    12.16.2011
    12.23.2011
    12.30.2011


    With just eight weeks remaining, I think DirecTV is done with adding HD for 2011. Only consideration is truTV HD; nothing else. And with information reported here that the next satellite launch [D14] will take place not in 2013 but in 2014 … it is no wonder this "HD Anticipation" thread now shows there is little or no anticipating.

    I am in the Detroit market, and Fox Movie Channel HD is being carried by Wide Open West (WOW) and Bright House Networks.

    You have faulty logic. 8 weeks left in the year or quarter mean nothing. If we got another channel the same time we got AMCHD, it would come on 12/9/11. Oh and I want TCM HD, so please don't rain on my anticipation. :)

    How about we get FS Ohio. They just went full time HD today. We only have the SD channel.

    We'll probably be celebrating New Year's day Day long before any new HD comes along.

    AJE is way better than the US "news" channels. I watched it last night on LinkTV and not once did they mention LiLo, Pizza Man, or The Florida Baby Killer. It was actual world news that really matters. Very refreshing.
