Simple poll for everyone:

Are they actually going to have more HD channels tomorrow?

YES, or NO?


I am hopeful, but am not counting on it. I can't wait to hear all the complaints if it doesn't start tomorrow

Considering Directs track record when it comes to HD and the fact that their website makes no mention of tomorrows date, I had to say no.

I said no simply because I can't remember a company ever meeting a promised deadline for anything for at least a few years.

YES - I just received a recorded call from D* asking me to confirm I have my BBC's installed correctly. This is a clear signal they are launching.

A little bird just told me to check the guide in the morning and look for TWC to go live with CNN soon to follow, although some channels might show up in the guide well before they are activated. Just FWIW, but I've got a good feeling.

Yes - just received a second recorded call from D* asking me to confirm I have my BBC's installed correctly. The first D* call was around a month ago.

They just gave me a personal valued customer call to make sure everything was OK. About 3:30 tomorrow morning EST. Be there.
The first 100 callers to the special phone # will get a very special prize.:)

Nevermind my recent post, I just read another thread informing that we don't have more HD yet. I guess the 70% that responded YES are really disappointed right now.

What are you talking about? The day is not even half over yet. It's coming, I just know it! :D

I wanna change my vote!

But I guess it is still "today", the 19th, but my hopes are quickly fading.

The bottom line is this:

Everybody listened to some dumbass CSR's who don't know squat! When we upgraded equipment, D* got us for another 2 years anyway!

So now we can all bend over and take it! They'll turn on the HD when they are good and ready!

For those of you who stayed up all night just to be dissappointed this morning, I am sorry. Don't lose any more sleep!

It Is What It Is!

Go rent a movie!

When I called they said it will be worth waiting for. As far as the new HD programs they had to put the satellite into hibernation as another one from E* was about to fail and go out of orbit and will come close to the new D* unit. Can't be too careful.
Well there goes all the HD Dish had.:lol:

apparently not: when the word comes from here that it is on I'll call the wife at home for varification. Until she says "yes" my expectations are rather slim. :what:

When I called DTV for a new dish to get the HD programming early last week to go with my new receiver (that hasn't been activated yet), I was told that someone would be out the 28th to install it. I seriously took that as a sign. "A newbie post, but I've been reading you guys for quite awhile."

How is that a sign? That means they are busy and can't get to you until the 28th.

I like this pole, it let me vote no after it didn't happen. I also vote no on all future poles about more HD channels. ;)

That should be poll vice pole. Why can't I edit my own post?

Edit: OK I can edit this one now, so there is a time limit? I realize HD Forum isn't a democracy but I would be happy if the time limit were removed. Sometimes I don't find my mistakes right away.
