    Yeah, I've tried to watch a few things on Reelz, but the picture quality is just so awful it's hard to sit through. I wouldn't put it on the top of my HD-Most-Wanted list, but it would be nice to have. Right now H2 is in the no. 1 position.

    They have an HD Feed of Reelz, on Galaxy 17, on C band, so it does exist.

    Everybody knows my main (CW HD-DNS & TV Land HD) two wants. Outside of those, the numbers are somewhat blurry as to where a channel sits on my wishlist.

    If I had Reelz in HD, I probably would have watched "XIII" and "Bomb Girls", but I'm not really upset about it like the two channels mentioned above. Reelz may be in my top 10, but where it stands on the list... :scratchin

    I think IFC and H2 are my only two big wants left. I'm pretty happy now.

    Yes, H2 is one of mine along with HLN which Dish has had for quite some time now.

    I would research if there is any major show premier or new episodes of anything,because that is when DirecTV decides to add HD channel, or how is the channel's ratings for that matter.

    I wondered about that. Dish fires it up in HD now and then which led me to believe it wasn't a full time HD channel.

    Universal Sports and Cooking are my top two, but I would not complain if we get ID, WE, or H2. Beyond those, there is nothing that really interests anyone in my household that is available in HD and not already on DirecTV in HD. ESPN Full Court and Military Channel in HD would be welcome additions, but they do not even exist in HD, yet.

    To me, it would be all the soccer/sports channels in Spanish, ESPN Deportes, Fox Deportes, BeIn En Espanol and GolTv. If these 4 were offered in HD, even though I don't speak Spanish, I'd pay the 15 bucks to add them. That said, 2 of them were originally available in the SportsPak, Fox Deportes and GolTv.
    Aside from those sports channels, Directv took care of my # 1 channel request this year: BBC America. I'm happy with Directv adding HD channels that are widely request by others, such as H2, GSN, TVLand, or, CW-HD DNS for Alan Gordon :)

    I believe it's a full-time channel.

    While DISH carried it part-time only for a while, I don't believe the channel itself was ever a part-time channel (wow... I started to break into song). I also could be wrong, but I think the channel is full-time on DISH now.

    H2 and OWN are the two I want. My wife watches OWN all the time, she loves that channel. Cooking channel and Universal Sports I would also like.

    But quite frankly.... If we don't get any more HD this year, this was already a GOOD year in HD additions.

    There is a lot of movement going on per Sixto's findings, but no new channels in test.... I don't think we'll see anything new this month, besides maybe TWCSN Los Angeles for the Lakers.

    Maybe Sixto will give us an opinion shortly. What does all this movement mean?
