Ok, so D* is claiming 30 additional HD channels this summer.

Lets figure many of those will go to premiums and RSNs.

It seems a safe bet we'll see a minimum for 5 new nationals. Rank, in order of preference, you think D* should launch. Please try and think of future space considerations and how D might be more stringent in how they select what channels to launch (so probably no WFN HD).

I think these are safe bets:

1. Fox News
2. Travel Channel
3. AMC
4. Lifetime Movies
5. ABC Family

Take out QVC hd (even though it is Liberty owned and will be on Direct soon) and put in Wealth tv for me.

Is there a PBS HD network or are you referring to local PBS affiliates?


PBS hd is going to be part of our LiL this year. I think.

Bob beat me to it.:)

Out of that list, I want AMC & Travel Channel. I'd really like FMC & TCM too.

Matt - that list looks more like everything that DirecTV doesn't carry versus speculating on what they will carry.

Are you saying some channels will be moving from D10 to D11? You have some channels in there that are already carried in MPEG 4 (not the MPEG2->4 moves at the top).
