    they won't be listed on zap2it until they are ready to lite up, maybe a week before.

    the channels listed in the flyer are probably among those that we wil get when dtv 12 is turned on.

    I don't even believe that CSPAN 1 or 2 are actually available in HD yet. There are future plans for that, but I don't believe things are in place yet.

    It is in todays Charlotte Observer. It is not a generic flyer. Directv inserts large full color flyers frequently here.

    It is not in fine print. It is a four page flyer approx. 9x9" in size. Open up the inside and down along the bottom almost full 1" banner exists listing HD channels. This is not a generic flyer. We get those too mostly in the coupons. Directv (maybe only in larger markets?) inserts these flyers here in Charlotte quite often. There are very nicely produced.

    i mean generic as the same flier is in every paper, not just specialized for a specific one.

    Generic as in probably the same flyer everywhere nationwide. It is not one of those cheap looking smaller flyers by local installers we also frequently see mostly in coupon advertisements.

    How about take a picture with a digital camera? I'm not saying you're lying but the evidence is against you here.

    It's a good thing we must back up everything with hard proof. It really encourages everyone to post when they find out something.

    Really, I would take this posters info as valid. Just because it isn't in your newspaper doesn't mean it is made up. These channels have been rumored for a while and were expected to be launched in the March/April timeframe.

    This flyer has Kimora "Life in the Fast Lane" from the Style channel on the front. Promoting the $29 off each month for a full year. Banner on the front says "Put your flatscreen on its best behavior. Get Directv HD. Inside left I have mostly Mega March Madness info. Maybe they are doing different flyers for different areas of the country. Don't know. Got to go the church.
