D* talk is cheap. Was all that talk at CES or Disneyland? D* is spinning lies for potential new customers, not the old burned out ones, like us!

D* promised my HD locals by 2007 and I'm still waiting. So I won't jump for joy, when I get those two extra HD channels next fall.

If D* ever releases a list of these new hd channels, you will almost certainly find that they are all locals.

I beg to differ, the news article title reads

DirecTV sees 100 HD channels, Net videos in '07


That's what they'll see... What will WE see?

Will my 2 year commitment be zero'ed for each channel as they come up?

Default New HD Station for 2007

I sure didn't mean to start a new thread that would cause everyone too BUM OUT. I was just trying to show a glimmer of HOPE that we may, and I emphasize MAY in our LIFETIME finally see some HD content before we die. I bought in too the HD craze a decade ago, so I know what disappointment is certainly all about. I canceled my HD programming that they gave me for half price today. The CS Representative tried her hardest to get us to not cancel, she said we are adding a lot of HD channels in 2007, we politely told her when they brought them online we would be glad to buy the HD Package again, but not until. If everyone would cancel their HD Programming maybe they would get the damn PICTURE. Their HD Programming isn't worth the half price that they gave it too me for, and I will tell you in my opinion, the HBO, SHOWTIME, and CINEMAX isn't worth what they charge for that either. Every movie is dated anywhere from the late 70's or the 80's and every once in awhile a movie from the 90's is on them but not many. What a total ripoff are those premium channels. It is my new years resolution to SPEND AS LITTLE AS I CAN WITH DIRECT TV UNTIL THEY CAN EARN MY MONEY! WHAT ARE WE TO DO SWITCH PROVIDERS AND GET MORE OF THE SAME TERRIBLE SERVICE THAT WE GET FROM DIRECT TV. THEY WROTE THE BOOK ON IT AND EVERYONE ELSE JUST FOLLOWS THEIR BUSINESS MODEL THEN FINDS A BUYER AND SELLS US OUT BECAUSE ALL WE ARE TOO THEM ARE NUMBERS TIMES X DOLLARS A MONTH. SIGNED ELCHEAPO

It's not locals. The plan is for national channels, as well as additional locals.

No, you won't see 100 national HD channels, there are not that many out there. But you will see 10-20 more by the end of the year most likely.

The are not launching the new satellites for good looks.

I am happy to see Direct get these channels and maybe more.

I just hope the Sats go up as planned or else Direct will lose a lot of customers, imo

Default Call DTV

I called and complained about the HD package and their ad. It is similiar to the one they ran a few years ago---tvs looking to the sky for the "new" HD channels coming soon. I got the HD package free for 4 months. Now I;ll wait and see--been with DTV about 10 years.

Default 100 HD Channels

Last night while watching the National Championship game, Go Gators:, I laughed at the D* ad about 150 new HD channels. I have been hearing about all these new channels since I signed up with D* just over a year ago. The only new channel I have seen is Turner in HD lite with a lot of Law and Order reruns. I have also seen hours of pixilization and loss of signal blue screens. Before this year ends, I will probably be back with cable, they have a better product at less cost.

I'm not sure how new this is, but they are playing some generic content in HD on Channel 95. I know they used that one for Sports, but they are looping the FREE channel in HD now.

I'm new to the system and they haven't had a chance to really screw me yet, but so far I'm glad I'm with the D rather than Time Warner(my old provider), a company that, IMHO, really has an awful approach to customer service/relations. Given the nature of the industry by this time next year I too will be fed up with cost increases, channel limitations and service disputes . I read the link provided above and IF indeed we get these HD channels this year I'll be a happy camper.
