    Good news. Makes HD Extra more valuable.

    Does this mean only one channel in the HD Extra pack is being added but nothing else? Or does this mean a small number of channels being added, one of which will be in the HD Extra Pack? Like the missing Cinemax channels as well as something for the HD Extra pack?

    HD Extra package is not exactly what I wanted to hear, but good news nonetheless. Thanks for the heads up!

    For those wondering, the below are possibilities for the HD Extra package (The red ones are my hopes...):

    1. Africa Channel
    2. Catholic TV
    3. Comedy.TV
    4. C-SPAN3
      [*]Epix 1
      [*]Epix 2
    5. ES.TV
    6. Fashion TV
    7. FEARnet
    8. FUNimation Channel
    9. G4 (SD channel removed from DirecTV lineup on November 1, 2010)
    10. Halogen
      [*]Indieplex
    11. MavTV
    12. MyDestination.TV
    13. NHK World TV
    14. Pets.TV
    15. PixL
    16. Recipe.TV
      [*]Retroplex
    17. Shorts HD
    18. SWRV
    19. WealthTV
    20. Wedding Central
    21. World Fishing Network



    P.S.: Satelliteracer, will our ABC be switched this week or next week, and when it happens, will it be in HD?! :confused:

    Well at least we are getting something that is almost basic. If the remainder of May is premium, then leaves me out since I have the HD extra but no premiums.

    I suspect 18 minutes after SatR's post might just be a bit early to jump to conclusions on what might be included in Part II.

    That would make 2 of us.

    I haven't seen any mention of AMC HD, BBC HD, TMC HD, or some others mentioned in the past as future candidates. :shrug:
