    Based on our experience with other HD additions, think Thursday after all the election hoopla when it isn't as important to the viewers.:rolleyes:

    I know that Dish Network will probably not have some of my top requests for awhile. Spike TV HD, Fuse HD, Crime & Investigation HD, FX HD, Soundtrack Channel HD and Wealth TV HD are among what I would really like. I know I'm in the minority on STC HD, but doesn't ANYBODY even sometimes enjoy movie music? I would enjoy it. If America Channel were to ever go HD, that would be a great small time college sports channel in HD.

    Do you really want all 15 of those channels? C'mon. Much was repeats and filler at a time when nothing else was going on in the HD world. I'll bet you only watched 5 or 6 of the channels regularly at most.

    (Of course, given the opportunity to choose which five should come back would never reach a consensus).

    Rumor has it that Dish will not be giving ANY new HD to its AK/HI subs. Oh wait, that's not a rumor, Dish really won't be giving AK/HI subs any new HD b/c they don't care about their AK/HI subs.

    The last two HD channels added were for AK/HI ... but don't let that stand in the way of a rant.

    Actually, much indication is there that the new HD will be put on 110 specifically so AK/HI can see it.

    I don't believe that Logo is even available to be added in HD at this point. That isn't to say that MTV Networks wouldn't be able to launch Logo HD, but it seems like they are MUCH more focused on HD for the big 4 of MTV, VH1, CMT and Spike TV.

    Since no one else here wants to say it.........

    The rumor for those in the "know" is that the viacom HD's are finally coming.......

    Rumor is there is eight , probably based on the 8 uplinks last week. (of course, that could be wrong) Theoretically I guess they could get there if some behind the scenes stuff is happening at Viacom.

    Spike HD
    Nick HD
    MTV HD
    CMT HD
    VH1 HD
    Those 5 exist and are carried on Direct; need 3 more that may exist.
    BET HD (heard rumors it was headed to Direct)
    MTV2 HD (heard rumors it was headed to Direct)
    Comedy Central HD (Was publicly announced to come to Cox last month, but never happened)

    I suspect that would be enough variety to make almost everyone happy about at least one of the additions. But pure speculation, which is all we've got, and we could just get more than Viacom. I know I'll be wearing out the F5 button this afternoon.
