Was wondering who would start this thread!

:uglyhamme
From what I read, that's all the channels for August... Now September, that's a whole different story

Good thing. I need more time to adjust to the onslaught of National HD's that just came out last week. Hopefully they'll hold off any new roll-outs for awhile.

Why the snobby and rude response to his question, VD? Did you ever stop to think that maybe the poster who asked this question doesn't read up on this stuff as much as you do? Great way to promote your site.

Well, I sent my email to support with the hope that we would see more national HD soon (complaining a little about the lack of nationals in the last BIG rollout). Their response was...

Thanks again for writing. I understand your concern regarding this issue.

We can't currently offer all of your channels in HD because our satellite capacity doesn't allow us to do that yet. We're continuing to expand our HD capacity and hope to offer more HD channels in the near future.....

I asked if lack of satellite capacity meant waiting for D12, and their answer included:

...we don't have plans to add FoxNews and other channels you stated in HD at this time...

I was also asking about the promised HBO HD additions.

Oh well.
(I've been reading this board for years, this is just first post).

I am going to give you the same answer that I gave you on the other site:

They have plenty of capacity. There are test channels still being linked, many PPVs are only temporary, and not all of the transponders are full.

Also, I can guarantee you that they have no clue on which channels are being added. No matter which channels you ask about the reply would have been, "We don't have plans to add_____________".

Well yeah ... I understand what you're saying and certainly believe it. It just BUGS me when they tell me something that is simply not true.

I fully understand if they just answer "we can only say we are planning to add more HD in the near future. We are not ready to announce anything yet, but will do so as soon as possible."

Even better would be "we are excited about new satellite capacity, and plan to continue new HD launches in the next month or so as previously announced."

:uglyhamme = joke, not rude response.

We've both been on the boards for awhile.

Lighten up, everyone jokes with everyone here.

I know! Did you see that show where the Green actor was bragging about his Green kitchen, and green carpet, and that other actor was trying to out green him, and then his wife wanted a green office, and an environmentally friendly bathroom, and ....*zzzz....zzzz....zzzzz...."
:D <---green smiley

Oh, and you have NOT lived until you've seen Sabrina The Teenage Witch in SD on an HD channel. That show was just made to be seen in its original aspect ratio.

In my opinion, D* should do what they did with D10. With D10, they announced all the HD national channels that would be coming from Sept 2007 through the end of the year. We didn't know specifically which week they would turn on, just that they were coming by the end of the year. This way, we know what to expect and they get a chance to have another marketing opportunity with a big announcement. Right now it seems like we here "soon" and "it's coming" but what and when is not being addressed, so who really knows what to believe. Why the big secret? That just seems like an odd strategy to me. My 2 cents.
