How is this DirecTv's fault? If the network chooses not to put HD on their HD channel blame the provider? That's the same as ordering a XL Jacket from L.L. Bean and blaming UPS for delivering a Large, even though that's what L.L. Bean sent! If DirecTv decided not to carry the HD CMT MTV, VH-1 and Fuel because they don't have HD content, and tomorrow they started to, you'd be complaining that they are not being carried. When the network start's broadcatsing, you'll be all set no waiting. This is exactly what happened with SPIKE. No HD for months, then (I forget exactly when) SPIKE started broadcasting HD content on their HD Channel.
