    Why not? It certainly could be DirecTV's fault.

    Nobody knows. :grin:

    It's not greed if you're paying for it. My $1,600 a year to DIRECTV entitles me to every channel I can get. :D

    Travel Channel HD has been live for over a year now. Yup, a year! :bang Still waiting.....!

    Why not just say, "I want every available HD channel in 180P, and I want it NOW!"?

    Me too (too damned close to $2K now that I do the math :eek2: ). I'll take AMC and HBO Signature in HD, please.

    But now that D12 has a launch provider and approximate date, at least I know when to expect them. :)

    D* needs to design their own reusable delivery vehicle, then they can just launch whenever they feel like it!
    It's only rocket science, should not be too dificult.

    Seems like if they added Travel Channel HD and AMC Channel HD, this place might turn into a speculation Ghost Town. :D

    (NOT)

    Add in ESPNU-HD, and I think you're probably right. Not to the extent of "ghost town", but it would probably quiet down quite a bit.

    You're right there! Directv should be very ashamed of the overcompressed, low definition mess it sends out as SD. SD can look very good if it's given sufficient bandwidth.
