NASCAR on TNT HD - just not on Directv!

:mad: I am so frustrated with Directv's pitiful HD lineup, I am about to pull the plug and go the cable route. I am esp ticked off that we don't get TNT HD. Being forced to watch NASCAR races in SD on TNT is just painful. I know its all about $$$, but if Directv doesn't hurry up and start adding more HD channels, I will switch to Time Warner...and I bet others will too.

Presumably you have checked that TNTHD is available on TW in your area. In Atlanta Comcast only started carrying it a few months ago.

Yes, my local Time Warner has all the same HD channels that Directv offers, plus all the local networks, and TNT HD

Go for it - I had to make the switch as trees obscured the DirectTV sat. The big benefit I have found is the twin tuner DVR for about $10/month - fantastic!

I emailed my complaint to Directv about lack of TNT HD, and they replied back that they are in negotiations with them. I told them they better hurry up and add some quality HD content or risk losing the high-end core customers that they feel are their future. I am not holding my breath until they get TNT HD or Cinemax HD, or any other channels. :mad:

I got rid of DirectTV about 6 months ago and went with cable. Much better selection. I picked up all my HD locals, TNT, INHD1 & 2 on top of what I was getting from DirectTV and I am saving about $30 a month. DirectTV called a couple times after switching over and asked how they can get me back. Told them to add real HD channels and then give me a call.

The other major advantage of cable is the cheap DVR.....

I send 1 e-ail a day to TNT and DTV requesting that they get a deal worked out. I wish everyone would do the same.
