    Now that we're only a week away... I'm going to ask this question looking for an even more precise answer... as to when I can expect MY Festivus.

    Will Albany, GA LIL be coming next week (4th) or the week after that (11th)?!

    Teeny, tiny stubby little pole erected for the celebration. 1/2 bag of stale cheetos and an unfortunately flat soda will be available for those who wish to participate at my place.

    I was hoping for FSC on the 4th, but my guess is that it will be GolTV.

    Has anyone seen any recent confirmation that GolTV will go HD on the 1st? I remember so many people thought FSC was going HD on January 1st but it didn't actually occur until later in the month.

    I'm expecting GolTV HD on August 4th and FSC HD on August 11th.

    GolTV pushed a press release today announcing that their first HD broadcast will be the 2010 Emirates Cup on July 31-August 1.

    Just saw that. Unfortunate that it will be just prior to the D* launch. At least it looks like both channels are coming soon.

    They have space for 40 more, and they've added the channels they have agreements for. It's frustrating they have space and have not used it, but they need to be careful what they add and what kind of agreement they sign.

    It only makes sense with the season about to start in various countries.

    Wondering about FS+, you would think it too would go HD at the same time, especially at $15 extra....May have to consider dropping if it stays SD....

    I don't have any of the soccer channels though. A lot of people probably don't have any of the movie channels they added last month though.

    True... but some do... and those channels are for them.

    Just because it was damage control doesn't mean they are not working on it. In fact, there's been evidence to corroborate that they have been working on it. It may not come this coming month, but perhaps in September?!

    Will be calling DirecTV tomorrow to update some MPEG2 receivers and a dish alignment. :D
