People tried to tell you that E* never promised any new HD It was only a "RUMOUR" and Just because charlie said no new HD doesn't mean there wont be any ;);)

He said that there should be a dozen new HD channels within 90 days and more after the new satellite is operational. The recap almost makes it sound like the 12 new channels come after the new satellite is launched.

Dozen new channels in the next 90 days is 4 more than being predicted in the rumors going round. It would be great if they treat the twelve days of Christmas like the 8 nights of hanukkah (giving us an HD gift each night for twelve nights) ;)

I'm pretty sure that FIOS is much closer to HD leader than Dish. However, FIOS doesn't have near the penetration that dish does. Still, maybe e* should call themselves "The Satellite HD Leader" or "The HD Leader for those who aren't rich enough to live in Verizon Country"

It sounds like some negotiating going on still... We have 12 slots available for HD but are negotiating with like 17 channels... Dish probably leveraging them to get a good deal.

I think, just like last year, any new HD will come after the February rate increases. Any bets how much the increases will be? I going with $5 for each level and Jim will declare it's justified by all the new HD you'll be getting. :)

Now that I would enjoy....a lot!

I'll have to avoid skipping past the commercials when I play back some of the stuff I record on RFD-TV.

I am about at that point to where I would rather see rates stay the same than to increase due to more additional channels or additional HD content.

you can tell they will add more HD because the PQ has gone down big time.
I have noticed some programs pq isn't great but overall I feel pq is good at least on my tv's but I have to question if some of you who CONSTANTLY piss and moan about "my picture quality is worse than it was last month (or whenever) are just angry that the over-priced tv, or the "world greatest deal ever" tv you were too busy to research is the reason for your poor picture quality. Just because you pay a lot for a tv doesn't guarantee it will have a good quality picture.
