It'll probably take them that long to offer HD content...

Actually they show films and films are very easy to convert to be shown on a HD channel. It would be different if they were showing old tv shows exclusively like Sleuth or TV Land.

this is cool. and IMO as far as older shows go, I have seen that they look way better on Sci-Fi_HD.

I hope ALL Channels are in ether 720p or 1080i by next year. :banana:


btw: did'nt Chiller first show up on DirecTv last Oct? if so it's funny that the HD Verson would start up this year at around the same time.

Chiller (SD) started on 3/1/2007 on Directv:

Just because the channel goes HD in October doesn''t mean DIRECTV will carry it in HD right away.

:2cents Just me, but I'd rather D* get everybody happy with HD locals, before they start adding more HD content. Or will this satellite do the mop up on all the sub-100 DMAs too?

Actually DTV has been anxious to carry ChillerHD, so I think they will be carrying it when it kicks off, especially if the new satellite is ready in September.

Directv10 and Directv11 combined will have the capacity for 150 national HD channels and 1,500 HD locals.

How do you know they've been anxious to carry ChillerHD ?, or any other channel ? Do you go to DIRECTV corporate programming meetings ?

:2cents Just me, but I think everybody would be more happy with some more national HD channels while they are continuing to add HD locals. They'll never make everyone happy with HD locals.

I'll disagree. Though I couldn't find the exact number of stations, there's 180 DMA areas in the US. Assuming each DMA carries all 5 nationals- ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, & PBS (unlikely), my math says 900 local stations in the US- give or take a few hundred. Up top, a poster said capacity for 1,500 HD locals. We shall see.

Have not been to the corporate meetings, but have read the corporate releases. Directv set up an agreement to carry Chiller HD over a year ago:

CNBC and Chiller to Join the HD Pack (http://dtv.client.shareholder.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=286346)

Thanks McB, but this comment was directed towards me and my post. Glenn, if you kept up with what is going on with your satellite provider, you'd know, as already pointed out, that Directv reached an agreement with Chiller to carry their HD channel as soon as it was functional and they had the capacity to carry it. No I haven't been to their corporate meetings, but, yes I read their corporate releases, as should you.

stonedog23, I'm really sorry I'm not up on everything going on with my satellite provider, I've got a life outside of watching TV and internet forums, as should you.

I've got a great life outside of watching tv and internet forums, so those two entities are just part of my great life! I'm a multi millionaire and I didn't get that way from not having a great life outside of tv watching and internet surfing. Reading corporate releases from several of the companies I have stock in is a big part of my life, Glenn! Ok thanks for playing the game, please try again.
