I know that DTV has put up to new KA birds earlier this year, but what is the lanuch dates for the next two birds? (Sorry, I have just got back from Iraq a month ago, and I am still trying to get back up to speed) Also, has anyone got the low down on any new national HD channels.

Thanks! & Have a Merry Christmas!

Spaceway 1 is up and being used for HD LIL now. Spaceway 2 went up last month after a few month delay and is working it's way to 103.

DirecTV 10 and 11, last I knew, don't go up until 2007. DirecTV 9 goes up early 2006 but it's KA transponders as supposed to be use for backhaul purposes and not additional channels.

I may be wrong that I think that's the latest word.
