    Bandwidth is just half of it. They need the contracts first.

    Thanks for the confirmation.

    What channel does it show for the recording?

    Interested in any and all details. I assume The Secret Garden is an older movie and not available on any of the Cinema channels, but I need to go look.

    Between that, and the re-shuffling for HBO/Cinemax, does seem to indicate that the constrained thoughts may be very valid.

    Curious to learn what bandwidth on D12 remains after this next festivus occurs. Thanks for the great continued reporting Sixto.

    Doesn't seem like it'll matter since they keep trading PPV on D11 for regular channels.

    While very happy to see the HBO and Cinemax additions the question I have is what will, if anything, DIRECTV do about pricing? Won't this be the first batch of channels that somone with a SD receiver won't be able to receive but would be paying the same as someone with HD service? Or would DIRECTV say you need to have the HBO/Cinemax subscription PLUS HD Extra package to get these new channels, since HD Extra is supposed to cover channel you can only get in HD?

    HBO and Cinemax aren't part of HD Extra. You can only get them individually or as part of Premier.

    Yes, I'm well aware of that. The question is will DIRECTV do anything pricing wise in order to view these additional HD channels or reduce the price to folks with only SD that have HBO and/or Cinemax?

    How would you feel is you were a SD only customer who's been wanting HBO Comedy for years, they finally add it but you can't see it, but are paying the same monthly HBO charge as someone that has HD?

    Just saying that there might be some angry SD only folks out there if they can't get channels that they're paying for.

    Pretty much the same as before, minus 1 slot (D12 TP11 1010).

    Prior to the re-shuffling, thought we had D12 TP9 & TP10 available and 3 slots on TP11, assuming 4 slots (TP21-24) for "push" and those 5 old TEST slots on TP20. Thus the 13 number.

    Recently, been wondering how available TP9 & TP10 really are, based on how tightly the bandwidth is being managed. Not sure if already other plans for TP9 & TP10, or maybe the up-link isn't ready, or maybe some other unknown use. Just don't know yet.

    No they won't change the price for SD customers. And technically if they're SD only customers they won't pay for the new HD only channels, since they don't pay the HD Access fee.

    No, there are a bunch of Starz channels that are only available in HD as well.

    Awesome info!

    I had thought my non-Internet connected receiver would only get whatever PPV movies DirecTV were pushed to the HDD.

    After reading your post, I went and checked, and there loads of movies available for download. Note that all I saw was PPV movies, but many older ones. Not that I do PPV (maybe 2-3 times in past few years), but the option to see an older movie that I have not seen in a while could be worth the $3.99. Clockwork Orange in 1080p was one that caught my eye.

    This, of course, until I decide between MRV or just an wireless ethernet bridge for just accessing DirecTV Cinema.

    I just tried downloading A Clockwork Orange, since it was mentioned as one of the movies available without an Internet connection. Interestingly enough, even with an Internet connection, the receiver waits for it to be pushed. The channel is 1971.
