Still I ask. Why categorize? And why along the lines of RSNs? Why not on documentary channels or shopping channels or news channels? My point is that RSNs are legitimate channels. I personally like DirecTVs counting of full time HD channels, no matter what the content. I am not thrilled with PPV being counted but if they are 24/7 HD, they are 24/7 HD. DirecTV could inflate their number by counting every single part time channel like Dish does or every VOD program like Comcast. BTW, I have 203 channels in my HD favorites and that does not count D12 content, obviously, but also does not include PPV channels or VOD content. While not a perfect counting system, DirecTV is being a bit modest, actually.
