    Directv not offering March Madness package this year? If not I hope they are showing games on CBS College also.

    ...and The Turner Group is going to use Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley in the studio and Steve Kerr and Marv Albert on game telecasts.

    Just got my bill and it said there's going to be a mix channel and a bracket channel. So it'll be like it is during tennis tournaments.

    So the $1M question is will D* carry truTV in HD come tournament time (like Dish)? My guess is most likely not, but I sure hope I'm wrong...

    It said 4 games at once (there's 4 channels showing games - CBS, TBS, TNT, truTV so that's all of them) for free and in HD. Like I said it'll be just like tennis and golf extras.

    It didn't specifically say anything about adding truTV HD but I'm thinking they will because it says "watch up to 4 games in crystal clear HD".

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    I'm guessing we won't get a Mix in HD (it will be crappy SD mix channel that wastes so much space that we've had in the past) nor truTV in HD.

    I hope they fill the whole screen with those 4 channels and not have any headers or footers taking up space.

    I thought TruTV was going to cover only the 4 play-in games

    This.

    A STEP BACK in HD availability of games will be another slap in face to current subs, especially one like me, who always had MMM as a differentiator.

    Nope.

    They will have the 4 play-ins, 4 games each opening Thurs/Fri and 2 games each opening Sat/Sun. So 16 games total.
