This move is very interesting. If I look at what they are doing to appears to be freeing up space where the Cinamax and HBO channels are located. I wonder if they are preparing to start adding more Cinamax and HBO channels.

I decided to try the Premier package for a bit, so more of those, especially in HD would be nice.

Okay my question would be why are they giving Cinemax HD and Cinemax West HD their own channels and not the same as the SD feeds? Thats weird.

Will DIRECTV Have Room For New HD Channels?
TVPredictions.com
Washington, D.C. (March 6, 2010) -- DIRECTV is planning to store a significantly larger PPV movie service on its new D12 HD satellite, company CFO Patrick Doyle said this week at the Morgan Stanley investors conference.

The announcement is important because the new PPV service is expected to offer up to 400 titles, compared to DIRECTV's current PPV lineup which features fewer than 20 movies.

With the expanded PPV service -- and DIRECTV's upcoming 3-D channels -- set for the new D12 satellite, there might be little room for the addition of new HD networks such as AMC HD, BBC America HD and WGN America HD.

Some industry observers have suggested that DIRECTV might use a different satellite to store the new PPV lineup, leaving space on the new D12 satellite for additional high-def networks. But Doyle said the PPV service would be on the D12 satellite, which is expected to be operational in late spring.

Doyle also said the new PPV service, called DIRECTV Cinema, will be launched in about two months.

This doesn't give me much hope for new HD. I may end up going back to Dish if this turns out to be true.

You need to give them more than April. D12 won't be ready until late in this month.

When are people going to learn that Swanni is ALWAYS wrong. I don't know how many times this has to be stated.

Patrick Doyle did not say D12 will be used for PPV channels. This just shows how stupid Swanni actually is. Doyle said they will be offering much more in the way of movie choices. These movies will be broadcast via VOD (broadband download).

Are they going to let the other 18.3 million customers know that the channels are moving?
I'm assuming on the on-screen guide?
