Does anyone know when DirecTV plans to launch this satellite? Based on everything I've read (including wikipedia), it's supposed to be late September 2009 - so next week or early the following week.

For us subscribers, this is the only concrete proof that DirecTV will indeed add more HD in the future -- and here's hoping that includes BBC America, Travel Channel and Fashion TV (from France, as was recently added to Dish)

An official date hasn't been announced, just that it should go up sometime in November/December (December being the more realistic date) and operational 2 to 3 months later, if all goes well.

I'm hoping for 30 more HD-PPV channels ;)

Any word as to WHERE it's being launched from ?
Wonder if they will have an updated website to follow like they did the last time ( the website was from the launch site, not D*)
