First half of January seems likely.
Next time I go to Las Vegas, I'm taking SR with me. He can read the dealer's hand.
It would be nice if everything with VOD agreement would come to HD. I'm scrolling through the guide and thinking ooh this is in HD, ohh that is in HD and sadly its not.
Not sure if they pushed an update to everyone live or not, but anything with VOD shows a little triangle next to the channel name so when I scroll through I keep thinking that means HD... so mislead!
That's great news. 2013!
Thanks for the heads up Satracer
My guess, with basic cable in HD, up to a maximum five:
204 Headline News HD
232 Cooking Channel HD
253 LMN HD
271 H2 HD
304 TV Land HD
I would also welcome others that are basic cable, in high def, which include those with select HD programming available through DirecTV's On Demand. (For example: Reelz Channel.)
DirecTV's 2012 basic-cable high-def additions were encouraging: BBC America HD, DIY Network HD, E! Entertainment Television HD, Nat Geo Wild HD, truTV HD, and Turner Classic Movies HD. Along with them, and the east-coast national feed of Ion Television HD, there were the brand-new programmers beIn Sports HD, Disney Junior HD, and regionals Time Warner Cable Deportes HD and Time Warner Cable SportsNet HD.
Awesome! Oh the suspense is building!
How about some H2 HD action? Anyone? Anyone? :lol:
And a Happy Holidays to you as well, sir!
Soon a Happy Festivus!
Thanks, Satelliteracer. I am happy now, but more and sooner are always better!
I figure H2 HD has to be coming. Just like it was the case with AMC HD, Turner Classic Movies HD, and BBC America HD this is one programmer whose high def seems to be plenty in demand. It's strange that it hasn't yet been added. Same with Cooking Channel HD and Style Network HD (to name two sister channels whose originals' high def are indeed available in the lineup regularly on DirecTV).
H2 HD seems obvious. I just hope not to be wrong.
To add to your guess, I'd lean towards channels from providers that Directv signed new contracts with in 2012, so channels from Viacom and Starz may be high on the possibilities list.
I do not think HLN will be one of the first five for 2013. I think Universal Sports and WE (in addition to the other four on your list) will come before HLN.
So you both make alot of money and time comes to cash in the chips...It'd be fitting justice if the clerk held your monies and said ...oh you'll get your winnings...
My new baby is really expensive. Toys, diapers, doctor visits, the cost of the c-section, my wife's medical bills, a single income, the upcoming fiscal cliff, increased health insurance premiums for "family" coverage, etc. I'm going to downgrade the premium packages to whatever the first package that includes DIY network. No more HBO, Max, Sho, Starz, encore, etc. Whatever bills I can cut back, I will. Hopefully new HD's will be of the "basic" variety. Not that I want to downgrade... It's out of necessity.
I've been there man. It gets easier when they break that first year mark. Cost goes way down - at least it did for me.
Thanks. I also can't wait for my first tax return with my new little deduction.
But for DirecTV, I will have to lower my package at least for a little while.
I love HD and hope more HD basics are on the way. Sounds like that's the case. Even in due time some more HD for my daughter would be great... like the hub hd, sprout hd. She's only 6 weeks so not really watching TV yet... but it would be nice if she had sharp pictures to look at to help her eyes focus... rather than blurry SD. Though Disney JR HD looks great and she looks at that off and on.
sat can you give us a hint what the new hd channels will be?
It don't work that way.
