I see where Dish is going to addHallmark, Showtime West, TruTV, Fox Soccer, Retro, Indie, BBC America, E!, and Sportsman in HD on 2/10. Any ideas when we might get more? It seems like we are the followers in HD now. Hope that changes soon.

There could be some tomorrow on DIRECTV too...

Thats what I am hearing... MSNBC was one that I heard mentioned as it will be doing a lot of olympic stuff in HD...

But I only heard this from one source so I am hoping this info is good. :) But until you see it, then its just a rumor. :D

Only one channel that I would watch and I don't watch it much as it it .... Tru Tv, if it's not a channel I'm interested in, it does me know good to have it.

I could care less about the NUMBER on HD channels as long as they are quality and once that I would watch.

700 HD channels don't do you any good if you don't watch any of them.

Quality over quantity.

True Jimbo. Of course, one man's quality is another man's junk!

They can add a few since the NFL season is done and D12 appears to be in good condition so far.

MSNBC would be a nice addition before olympics, there's quite a bit of hockey on there - not that Directv cares about hockey fans :(

But do they count their chickens before their hatched (D12) or play it safe and wait until D12 is actually parked at 103 and working? I thought we might have seen MSNBC HD for the Olympics, but since it looks like that's not happening guess it looks like they're playing it safe:(

Yeah, it does not look like we'll see anything this week.

D12 is getting awfully close to being parked at the 76 deg. testing location and once it lights up the likelihood of success should become known quite soon. That might be enough to allow a few more channels being added to D10 and/or D11.

I recall seeing something about ESPNU showing up early this year, but that may have changed.

Is it due for a Mar or Apr fireup?

actually testing is suppose to begin next monday or tuesday. and it sounds like they got it parked sooner than expected. so i'm banking on april, maybe even late march.

DirecTV and DISH are like Ati and Nvidia. They offer pretty much the same end result with different bells and whistles. :)
