    I have absolutely no idea why anyone here would doubt that we will see these new HD channel tomorrow. Some folks have this pesky issue with reality.

    Doesn't DirecTV have a pesky issue with Reality? They have not switched over to National Geo Wild yet. :D

    As for D12, I understand that everything is fine and it will be on service as scheduled.
    I read that somewhere ...

    I won't argue with that. There were a couple of points that I was subtly trying to make, which wasn't very clear. The channels in the initial days of migration from SD to HD were not as mature toward providing HD content. This has changed significantly and to worry about the SD versus HD content should be considered mildly, not overtly extreme. I believe all of the projected channels being turned on have volumes of HD content to share and that too should squelch concerns as well. To worry about the SD versus HD content on an HD channel, in my estimation, seems like a waste of time given the current environment. To your point, everything DirecTV is bringing forward, besides the Premium Channels, are things that I certainly do want, and they all fit the bill of being mature HD channels.

    And you know, in the case of the channels we think we might get, these have been around a little while so they probably have a decent amount of HD on them.

    I predict a mass exodus of national channels, and a couple new channels.. that are all conus.. I think its the spots that are going to be moved slower over the course of the drift.

    Ok, I added my 2 completely unsupported guesses :D

    Poorly stated on my part, I get up at 6am or before randomly as needed by work or family commitments. This will be my first Wednesday 6am for new HD in forever :)

    I wake up anytime between 5:00am and 6:30am every day of the week regardless of what time I go to bed. I just naturally wake at that that time and cannot sleep longer even if I am tired and want to sleep more.

    Anyway, the live time for us left coasters is 3:00am (I will definitely not be getting up that early).

    If no one is certain what channels will launch tomorrow does that mean someone will cruise the entire guide looking for new ones. If so, I'm checking for posts first thing. Us left coasters are lucky, 6AM is much easier than 3AM
    :grin:

    I get up at 5:00 mdt; probably doesn't matter though. My signal strength on the 103ca averages about 30 and the 103cb averages about 35. Directv won't roll a truck until I can call and specify channels not received.
