I see D* decided to take down the most logical channel in order to get more bandwidth for the ST.

This week it's Universal HD

I called D* CS about it and was assured they would never turn off UHD for ST. Yeah right. I'd send a letter to D* complaining about UHD being pulled for ST but I feel that would be hypocritical given that I sent a complaint letter to UHD three days about their lousy programming.

It'll be back at 5pm. Sorry for those who missed another rerun of Law and Order or Knight Rider.

:p

For all those who voted for UHD in the "Which channel should D* pull, TNT-HD or UHD" poll, you got your wish.

And I for one will be canceling D after the Nascar race.
Why ???
They put the Nascar back on in plenty of time for the Chase.

It's the principle of the thing... you pay for a HD package 24/7, not the channels they choose to put up or take down because they have oversold/ overtaxed their bandwidth for STHD...
This would not be happening if they had not added all the HD channels they added this past year...
And it will not happen next year when the new sats get up and running.

I called to complain and got $5 off my HD package for 6 months.

You guys sound like your paying $ 50 p/m for HD channels.
D* dropped the price for the HD package already this year, also added an additional channel in HD and they need to take down a channel that runs 70's programming in streach format to fill your screen and your complaining that your missing it ????

How much UHD do you normally watch on Sunday afternoons ???

Depends on whats showing and whos playing football... I weaned myself off of ST a couple of years ago ( I had it on the old Tvn channels on BUD long before D* got it) now I watch selected HD games mosty on my E* HD networks ... but I still pay for the channel, I guess I might call next weekend and see what they offer as hush money :)
