    G4 will be going away I believe. Comcast is dropping it on all their systems in either December or January.

    I think it will be in January Comcast/NBCUniversal will cease operations of G4.

    Good riddance to G4 anyway I havent missed it. They ruined it when the bought out TechTV and changed it. Then they got rid of the video game programming which is what G4 was about. NOw its just some generic channel. So it wont be missed at all. We lost it in 2010 and havent missed it since. I did like TechTV but when it changed it lost its appeal.

    fxx is moving to channel 259 so that leaves channel 619 vacant on the sports pack which use to be fox soccer channel is only right a soccer channel takes that spot maybe bring back gol tv hd to the sports pack or putting fox deportes hd since is been requested by alot of customers

    That's a good idea, I would give priority to Fox Deportes for it's Libertadores de America games.

    I really would like to see the Telemundo network feed (406/407) in HD and I agree with Fox Deportes HD as well, those are pretty much my holdouts aside from CSN Philly and GolTV.

    I am glad they are finally moving FXX up to where it belongs. Now they need to move Fox Sports 2 as well like around 222 or something. Then we just wait til next year and see what goes HD next. I will put up My list as of now.

    GSN
    RFD
    My local CW but wont happen since its a sub channel here.
    I see Military is HD now
    and like most EPIX would be good
    also like to see movieplex and retroplex

    Sometimes they only transmit a 480i signal over OTA, but can have an HD fiber feed for cable and satellite. This occurs in some markets, especially where CW/My are on a subchannel of one of the big 4 networks. I wouldn't rule it out for you.

    MoviePlex isn't in HD, but IndiePlex and RetroPlex are. I thought they would be added once the channels in the HD Xtra Pack were moved, leaving a space for 4 channels. I believe MoviePlex cycles around the different formats of Encore channels, so it's not terribly useful except in a basic package. Those would be quality additions for those of us with the Ultimate package.

    For me, my top HD list would be GSN, Pivot, Ovation, Encore Drama and MTV2 for now. I don't watch anything on Sundance or Reelz because they're in SD only. I would look more closely if either were in HD.

    I'm aware. I'm saying they're next on my list, and that I'd consider their programming if DirecTV added them in HD.

    Both Reelz HD and Sundance HD are on in selected markets for Time Warner Cable and Charter, and throughout for Bright House Networks and Dish. Some Comcast areas, Mediacom, Cablevision and Service Electric in PA have Reelz HD. RCN and some Suddenlink areas have Sundance HD. The availability on these two has risen a lot, and DirecTV should be getting on that.

    yep, we got reelz added in hd right before the channel showed the kennedys mini series. we just got sundance, haven't watched anything yet. hoping some day soon i won't need to augment my satellite with cable to get all channels in hd.

    Oh ya I forgot about Reelz would like that in hd since they run a show I like now. As for Sundance shouldnt they move to HD Extra or something if they go HD since they are not premium anymore they do have commercials now.

    I was pretty mad when I found out IFC added commercials, but after finding out the movies are still uncensored it doesn't bother me as much.

    I certainly agree, plus how about Reelz HD and Fox Movie Channel HD, but I'm not very optimistic for any more additions the rest of this year. Just a hunch and obviously hope I'm wrong.
