What's the deal? I heard rumors that E and ESPNU were going HD on DTV on March 1st, never happened. What's the word, when will we see new HD channels? It's been a LONG time.

DirecTV announced back in May that we'd get ESPNU HD by March 31.

DirecTV Press Release May 19, 2009 DIRECTV TO OFFER ESPNU IN ITS CHOICE PACKAGE - ESPNU's Distribution More Than 46 Million Subscribers

However that was BEFORE all the delays of the launch of D12 so it'll probably be later.

I haven't heard anything about E!

Looks like Directv is going to use the new sat to expand its HD PPV channels and its PPV offerings to 500 movies. Just like D11 we only got a hand full of HD channels looks like this sat will be a disapportment also.

No offense, nor is this directed at you, but this has been discussed over and over AND been shown to be totally false.

First, even if they were to devote all of D12 for PPV channels, it alone would not be enough for 500 movies.

Second, nowhere does it say anything about PPV channels. The quote specifically mentioned movie titles. These titles will be mostly broadcast through VOD, which does not use any bird space or channels. It is all done via broadband download to your DVR.

Third, D11 was announce well ahead of time that IT WOULD be used mostly to convert mpeg2 to mpeg 4, LIL, AND PPV. There was no announcement of sort for D10 nor D12.

Fourth, Direct has already announced that D12 will be used to expand it HD channels to over 200

Fifth, the CCRs, Direct, Stonecold, and Satracer have already announced a list of channels that WILL become available after it goes live.

More doom and gloom, how pessimistic.
