    Yep! I'll be watching it...

    It will be interesting to see if they have a successful translation, or if it will be another failure...

    Kinda like the new Top Gear...

    One will not be a sub for either, unless it follow the same story. If it does, then Ill stick with what I started on, the BBC versions.

    You expected more than 23 HD non PPV channels to be added? We only got 6 in 2009.

    Well, Luther is only a 6 part mini-series, so it will be long gone by the time Directv ever picks up BBCAHD, but you are right, it is a great show. The Walking Dead will be a short season, from what I have heard, so I doubt we will get to see that either. Really too bad, since it is one of the best series on TV IMHO. I am currently watching both in SD, and cursing D* throughout.

    I just grab them in HD off of certain download sites if you know what I mean.
    720p. A couple of gig. Not too bad. Picture is excellent.

    Yup - when it comes to HD channel additions...short term memory is a common disease. ;):D

    I anticipate things are not finished for 2010 yet either.

    I'm happy they added some (even though I don't subscribe to most of them) but I must admit with a brand new satellite and all the available channels to add, I too anticipated more than the 23. Especially some of the bigger names left on the list. Now that we see how difficult it appears to be to add new HD channels I won't be anticipating such a big number in the future though. Things have definitely changed in terms of difficulty to add.

    Since nothing new in Sixto's uplink report looks like another week with no new HD channels:nono2:

    Not looking like anything next week, but sometimes the changes show up less than a week in advance...but right now...next week does not seem to be a high probability for new HD channels.

    I'm not sure why anyone was expecting new HD today when we were never alerted by Satelliteracer to be expecting anything today. He'll tell us when more are coming as soon as he is able to. Patience.
