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)

There was another thread about this already. I think it's scheduled for November? with an online schedule of around March?

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*)
