    The choice of 16x9 versus 4x3 is from the channel, no?

    Chiller and Cloo would be nice. A number of their shows and movies were HD to begin with.

    Has anyone checked out the on demand lately? Cooking, Reelz, LMN, H2, Logo and Tvland all have programs that u can view in HD yet directv does not carry these as HD channels, is this a sign of things to come?

    While it is possible, I think it more likely that is an indicaton those channels will be coming to DirecTV in HD in the nearish future (months, not years). The reason I think that, is those are all ad-supported channels, and thus they would much prefer to have real-time or near-time (DVR) eyeballs watching them.

    Although SatelliteRacer did hint that there may be something in the pipeline.... if there isn't anything in test tomorrow, I think this year is done and dusted for new HD.

    That said, it was a marvelous year and everyone got something they wanted! Great year for HD additions.

    Pretty sure the year is done.

    Maybe we will see something in January.

    Maybe with linear. I'm still holding out for Starz Play access and a large amount of Starz and Encore on-demand content that was rumored to be launched prior to the holidays; similar to what we just got with Showtime.

    and with the new year I'll SEMI lose my calling card to post on this specific topic..When my contract is up im washing my hands of D* somewhat

    Since big cable added the NFL Network and NFL Redzone

    I've had 0 use for anything sports related on D*

    Had 6 Boxes I returned to D* from the bar..Kept only 1 since Im locked into contract. I will keep 1 box for D* at the bar incase sports disputes pop up and I can always show the games via HDMI/red/green/blu cables heaven forbid yellow red white if i need to pump it to more than 1 TV. Time Warner gave me a sweet deal to get more boxes for FREE.. couldn't pass that up, to the big sack of nothing D* ever discounted me..

    But I'll be removing it from my home when the shackles come off as well..

    Till then i'll play my harmonica on the impending sunset of any more HD channels for 2012..

    Any idea as to when the rest of the Encore Movie Channels will go HD or even if they're available in HD?? Are they available on other cable or satellite providers??

    Thank you. Hopefully, Directv will consider adding them sooner rather than later.

    Does anyone have any information about when more Showtime OnDemand will be added? I really enjoying being able to watch basically every episode of all the HBO shows.

    Yes I know they are available, have they added more content to ondemand? I checked a few weeks ago, for example you could only download this years episodes of Dexter. HBO ondemand has every episode from every season of all of their shows.

    Go to the Showtime On Demand menu and select All New Seasons to see what's been added.
