    Usually, the most we know in advance is usually a week. And that is because Sixto informs us when a new network is in a test mode. D* usually doesn't tell us anything.

    I was hoping for TV Land HD linear channel by now, but at least there is TV Land HD-VOD.

    Either way, the week after next's season premieres of "Happily Divorced" and "Hot In Cleveland" are free HD downloads on iTunes for those interested.

    Perhaps that's the case.

    Stuff looks/sounds great on an Apple TV.

    Agree! On Nov. 4, I believe, SR mentioned that more HD is coming and will continue to come. Hoping that TWCSN HD wasn't the end of the HD additions for this year. If not, still very happy with all that was added earlier in the year.

    Too bad that WealthTV seems to only be on small cable systems and of course, as a paid online subscription.

    If they had an app that would stream to my big screen via AppleTV or BluRay, I'd be interested. But I'm not interested in horsing around with DLNA again, and I sure don't want to watch on my computer nor my iPad.

    Thanks for the info.

    I'm assuming I will remain very happy with all the new basic HD channels we got in 2012 even as I assume we won't get any more before NYE.

    Still anticipating C-SPAN & C-SPAN2.

    I remember a post four or five months ago that said SIRIUSXM would be returning to Directv in the new year. Anyone remember this, and if so, is there any truth to it?

    None at all. That info came from Wikipedia. Would be nice though if D could bring it back as an extra menu feature for SXM subscribers to log in like they have with Pandora.

    Now back to HD discussion....I wonder if that missing Cinemax channel will ever be added...OuterMax.
