They might be shuffling 10 of the part-time HD RSNs twice as often. :)

They have already been testing for a while. Should be turned on before long. That's all I can say anything more is a give away of what I got as a Pub member.

When do they turn stuff on? it is past 1 PM mountain time now and still nothing. Do they do multiple uplinks in a day? There were 8 channels that have been discussed as "temp" channels for testing (including BBC America yeah!) so I am betting they are the new ones whatchel1 is talking about (but I am not a pub member so i do not know that for sure).

The only 3 channels that have been "up" in testing have been BBC America HD, QVC HD and EPIX HD and those have been up there testing for awhile now.

As we reported in the pub a handfull of other channels were supposed to go up in testing today. Now remember just because something is in testing does not mean it will EVER become available to the customers.

Please don't join the pub if you want to see the list as you will probably be disapointed, however please do join the pub if you want to help support the site and keep the lights on here at SatelliteGuys for all.

Retailer chat tomorrow... perhaps we will here more then.

Thanks!

Wow...QVC HD. That's a good use of bandwidth.

Because I really need to see Joan Rivers' busted-looking maw in vibrant hi-def.

Shopping channels help to pay the bills at every company that carries it. So that is why all providers carry them. I don't watch them but I do understand why they are there.

I currently get QVC HD, and I got to admit it makes the shopping channels watchable... :D

Yea , I'll pass, HD isn't enough to turn a Shopping channel watchable.
Maybe if there were naked female super models selling items.:p

Actually I have seem some nice models including a lingerie show on QVC HD before. ;) Sometimes there is something on QVC worth watching.
