Is calling a CSR the only way to add the PB HD channel? My brother is home on leave before shipping out to Iraq and he's staying with me and my wife and he wants to check out PBHD before leaving his godless infidel ways behind for the next year or so. I fear I'll get some little old lady who'll ask me why I'm adding porn! ANd does it come on the same day? Shopuld I call from home to confirm that it's on? Thanks!

No one's going to ask you about why you're ordering. Adult programming has the biggest margins in television. The CSRs are told to not comment, I'm sure.

If the CSR's did not act professional during situations like this then they wouldn't be CSR's very long I would hope. Plus, they fact that they're recorded makes CSR Reviews a wee bit difficult if a Manager can hear them taunting you in some way over your order.

Enjoy it dude! The CSR could care less what you are watching. Be nice to them and you'll certainly get the same courtesy in return.

Why not have your brother make the call for you.

And, please pass on to your brother that I appreciate his service and wish him godspeed.

adding the channel is no big deal just ask that you would like the new channel on 701 added, that way you don't have to say playboyhd. They'll just add it right away.

When I ordered it, the entry showed up in the guide while I was on the phone, but when I tried to tune it in, I got the message that I had not subscribed to the channel. Several minutes later, it came on.

One word of warning, when I added PlayboyHD, it automatically got added to my Favorites, so if you don't want young eyes to see it, remove it from Favorites and Adult Guard it.

btw some of the programming on there has amazing quality with little pixeltion/artifacts. Then there is some that look great, but any quick movements, and it looks bad with pixelation, and artifacts everywhere. Over all the content is much better than what is shown on the regular PB channel offered by other Sat/ cable companies.

Yea, I'll agree with that. The pixilation on movement that sometimes shows up is annoying. Hope they get that fixed before too long.

Isn't it strange that some movies they play are so crystal clear, with no artifacts, and then most of the shows, like "weekend Flash" will be crystal clear, but will pixelate badly with movement? It's strange to me.

John R-

Thanks for the well wishes! We're really proud of him, a little nervous and scared, but it's his job. I figured 3 weeks of PB HD on me is the least I can do. I'm going to try to forward to him my Maxims every month, but I hear because we're trying to respect the muslim nature of the country, the military is asking family to refrain from sending that type of material, and believe it or not, bibles. Not really anything to do with this, but wanted to thank you personally.- Dan

Yea, it is odd. I was watching the nude bowling that they sometimes do on The Weekend Flash, and that seems to really fall apart with pixilation. I've watched it twice. The first time was really, really bad, and the 2nd time pixilated a lot but wasn't as bad.

Is it the upconverted stuff that pixelates badly? Seems to me I haven't seen the HD stuff pixelate (maybe my eyes were too crossed to notice?).
