    There are ways of seeing the stream (not actually watching the channel, but the transponder map), and Sixto can do that. Check out his transponder map thread.

    Of course not. They've been behind for several months.

    When they get AMC, BBCA, Centric, Cooking, DIY, E!, Fashion, G4, Gala, Hist Int'l, HLN, ID, Lifetime Movie, Mav, Nat Geo Wild, Shorts, Tru, TCM WFN, Indieplex, Retroplex, Epix, Epix2 and several HBO and Cinemax's, they won't be behind.

    This is good news. The HD Extra pack is looking more attractive all the time. I've tried the package several times before, but have always canceled before the three months are up. I rarely watch most of the channels, but I usually watch a couple of movies each month on both HDNet Movies and MGM; I especially enjoy the early premiers on HDNet. Those channels alone have almost been worth keeping the package. SONY has a huge collection of movies and I'm sure they will eventually show something I haven't already seen. If they eventually add EPIX as well, I will definitely pay the $5/mo for the package.

    I dunno if SMC is enough to get me to pay for it, but it's getting closer.

    That is what I do now. I may, one day, start feeling guilty and actually pay for it if they add better stuff.

    It'd be one thing to say "Dish has all the same channels as Direct, PLUS these". But you can't, because Direct took a different path and has things Dish does not. Apples and Oranges.

    DodgerKing, Wrong thread, this is the D* HD anticipation one not the D* vs E* one.

    :backtotop

    I hope SMC has some good movies to watch.

    I was paraphrasing since you made a gigantic list. Keep the D* vs E* chat on the right thread, this isn't the place.

    I agree. Channel lineup comparison discussion is probably best had in the thread established for it. (link in my signature)

    Now, back to our anticipation! :D
