Already here's my "bitch" about D*. I have Choice Plus and went to watch something on TMCXHD the otehr day and got the 721 message. Called yesterday to inquire since the TMC tier is supposed to be part of that "Plus" and was flat out told it was only available to Premier customers. WTF? If stonecold is around, I'd love some insight.

Some of the TMC channels are in the plus package, but TMCXHD isnt, for some inexplicable reason.

Isn't TMCX a part of the Showtime package? :confused: If so it seems to reason you need to sub to either Showtime or the Ultimate package to get it but maybe I'm wrong

Subscribe to Showtime Unlimited and you'll get it... or Premier.

I watched part of one of my childhood favorites on TMCXHD.... "Explorers." Good sh!!!t

I'm still waiting for:

AMC
G4
BBCA
Outdoor Channel
...and all the Cinemax channels.

I'm thankful that they have finally made an effort to add looooooong overdue HD, let's hope they don't just sit back now. I have a bad feeling that we have pretty much gotten all we are going to get for quite a while and they'll fill the rest of the slots with HDPPV. Hopefully they prove me wrong.

Cinemax should start a new channel, Cinemax Skinamax... 24/7 softcore porn. In HD of course.

It be nice and even honest if they had a flat rate with or without movies instead of 5 & 10 dollaring you to deaf.

I don't think we're done. I'd bet it's better than 50/50 that we get more sometime during July.

Hope so. Since we are moving to D* in a few weeks I will miss watching G4 and BBCA in HD.... :(

Now I love the most recent HD editions that where added a week ago, but I think if Direct wants to get ahead alittle they should add the missing Cinemax channels plus the ones that Dish has and D* doesn't like the extra platinum package channels that they offer. Then they could maybe sit back for a short while. Also maybe AMC-HD I know that there is alot of peeps that want this one. Direct is not involved in a lawsuit with Rainbow media like Dish is are they? I have AMC-HD already on my BellTV system and it is really only good for two reasons, Breaking Bad and Mad Men. Other then that I hardly ever watch that channel.

I had it on Comcast and I only watched it because of the occasional Star Trek movie. Still, I wish DirecTV would add it because it would make a lot of people happy. BBC America would be great too. Top Gear without Dish HD Lite would be a wonderful thing.

Its called Cinemax After Dark now Cinemax: Cinemax After Dark

I am aware of Cinmeax After Dark. But that is the main channel, well, after dark. I am talking about having a 24/7 channel with that theme. In HD, even though most of the softcore porn wasn't shot in HD. If I see that Chili's canopy one more time I am going to vomit.

There actually needs to be a hardcore porn subscription channel... not some garbage like After Dark or Playboy.... I think you know what I mean. The stuff that people pay $10.99 for a two hour block kind of stuff.

I'd be curious if they offered a hardcore porn channel for free as a choice instead of the $29 discount as a new customer, how many would jump on it.

But honey, it was free!
