    DirecTV Inc.’s long-expected new high-definition sports channel -- backed by former Internet mogul Mark Cuban -- will debut this week, sources said.

    The service, called HDNet, is slated to debut Thursday with the telecast of a Minnesota Twins-Texas Rangers Major League Baseball game. More than 12 baseball games are expected to follow before the end of the season.

    I have a feeling we may see this channel on Dish Network within a few months. Mark Couban has been going around saying that his deal with DirecTV is no exclusive.

    Would love to see it!

    Am I wrong, or will this HD sports eye candy be free for the plucking? If so, good for us. It'll obviously be a more potent "demo channel", too.

    Dang I just read his note.

    Now it looks like I have to go out and get a DirecTV HDTV Unit.

    Any good units besides the DTC-100?

    I just saw one yesterday at Best Buy as an "open ticket" item for $239. Almost bought it just for the heck of it.

    I suppose this will be requested by Dish subs now on Charlie Chats.

    Charlie: "Hello caller?"

    Caller: "I Want My HDNet!!"

    Charlie: "We Have HDNet"

    Caller: "Where is it on the EPG?"

    Charlie: "Its called TechTV. Its a channel about Hard drives, isnt it?"

    Caller: "Yes, but..."

    Charlie: "Ive always called TechTv HDNet, so there...we have it..now dont bother me requesting a channel that I have already have. Now here's Jim Ferguson promoting his new channel we are gonna add. Its 24 hours of his reviews on Dish. My wife and I love the channel so much that we're gonna take Fox Sports World off the EPG so I can add this special channel"

    Of course I could be wrong.... :D

    Panasonic TU-HDS20 beats the RCA hands down. Much more sensitive on local broadcast reception. Of course, the Panasonic is more expensive.
