I wonder if this will,have a positive effect on the HR* speed?
Good! All those stupid "game loading" channels in the guide will go away.
I think they've said that it doesn't come into play unless its in use.
Doesn't other me that it's going away though.
I don't doubt that percentage.......however, is it because people in rural areas can't get HD, or DIRECTV customers prefer SD? Aren't the packages the same price whether or not you have SD or HD minus the $10? And if you buy a new TV, aren't people buying HDTV's now because they are so cheap? I've had HDTV's for about 13 years now, who are these customers?
Well I get the HD programming for free because I'm a new sub and I did the auto pay, but that's just for 2 years. After that who knows? I won't pay $10 for HD programming, I don't think it's worth it, not that big a difference between a SD pic and a HD pic to warrant $10 a month.
About time. Nothing but a total waste of resources since it's inception. Regardless of whatever the amount of resources are. (not just badwidth, but resources of every kind.)
Hopefully the personnel involved in that garbage will be re-tasked to fixing/working on something that's acutally useful.
I whole heartedly disagree. I can barely stand to watch anything in SD at this point.
Actually, from what I've seen, I would describe the Game Lounge demographic as more mature women without internet access. It was more popular at its inception back when apparently you could wager real funds on it. Even though it may not be your cup of tea there are fans of the programming out there and at least they will miss it.
You are absolutely correct on the demos.
Glad to see game lounge go. I can't imagine why anyone would want it in this day and age.
You mean they charged $10 for EGA quality games? I used Dish's games about 15 years ago once!
What? He meant HD service free for 2 years, which he don't think he should be paying $10 a month for, even as a new customer, unless you're being sarcastic.
It wasn't $10, but I do think it was $6.
Wait? Game lounge is still there?
dpeters - if removing Game Lounge makes the code base smaller, it certainly won't hurt performance.
Plus, it'll stop the irritating pause if you happened to tune to a GL channel.
Next up - Please get rid of the "Active" channel!
Wow I wondered what was the fate of game lounge. Since the inception of the HDUI, I was wondering when will Game Lounge, apps and active follow suit with updated HD quality graphics.
I almost think that stuff is from NDS Media highway so they would have to update it, not DirecTV.
Wonder what will take its place?
Agree it won't hurt performance, but I'm not convinced it will help performance, other than the delay when tuning to the channel.
Next up - Please get rid of the "Active" channel
Can't miss something I never used.
Could they make Active go away too?
