Its OK.
It happends.


I just am so sick of how everyone claims E* is so great at launching new channels, and that they deliver.
Everyone seems to forget 15 channels Dropped in 1 day with NO NOTICE.
Plus many more channel drops without notice.
I remember E* used to have about 5 Outdoor sports channels ,they dropped about 6 months before voom.

That is why I never went to dish. I was gonna take the plunge one day then on my local stations they were saying Dish was dropping them and to continue their programming go to Comcast or D*. Now they finally worked out the contract but I don't need them dropping my locals at anytime.

I'm VERY excited that WGN-TV will finally be in HD. I switched over from Dish to Direct last summer and the only thing that disapointed me was that WGN was in HD at Dish but not Direct.

Now...I can watch EVERY Cub game in wonderful HD! Life is Good!

Thanks Scott for announcing this on that most wonderful of calender days...4.20. I will be buzzing about this new for a long time!

What happened to the expanded HBO lineup they promised last year?

HAHA... last year? Are you living in 2008? This is 2010. They made the promise in June of 2007 for a fall-Dec launch. The press release is still floating around the net and this site if you wish to double-check the promise.

EDIT... quick google search... here is a link of the press release... http://www.directvpresscenter.com/p...offer-11-hbocinemax-channels&filter=gbmswadjo
I am angry about this lie no less than weekly, so I remember the date all too well. For the short time I had FIOS, I enjoyed all 26 in HD... and here I get the east and west of the flagships of each with DirecTV... at least we'll get two more soon.. haha

Actually, my understanding is that WGN America will be in HD and that will not help when games are on WCIU or not on the nationwide feed. :rant:

They have added many PBS HD's in many many markets since the announcement. In fact, we have three PBS HD's in my market through Direct.

The New Orleans PBS has been uplinked within the past few months. Hopefully they'll add it for you soon.

Does Dish carry PBS HD in any market?

PBS HD has been added on Dish to something like 10-15 markets. Ironically, many of them are small markets. From what I understand, they are trying to fill out some of the smaller markets to meet whatever agreement they made with Congress with regards to LIL carriage around the country.
