I was just out shopping and approached at I think Sam's club by a salesman from DirectTV which I cancelled well over a year ago. Trying to convince me to switch to them. I told him the reason I quit is I'm a CU fan and only have either cable or satellite for college football and basketball and they do not have the Pac12 which I need. This idiot keeps yapping on how much better off I would be with DirecTV ignoring the fact they do not have what I want. He must have been desperate for a sale and awfully stupid to even keep yapping when I told him explicitly why I didn't want it.

I just moved to Arizona and went with Cox only because I have the equipment (an HDHomeRun for computers) which only works with cable. It was excellent with Comcast with whom I had all the channels I wanted at a very good price including my internet. Down here I went with Qwest since Cox wasn't even in the home I got and I didn't want to wait for my internet plus the fact they offered a much better deal. Cox sucks as bad as anyone I have every had TV or even internet service with. They do not offer decent channels at reasonable prices nor a reasonable internet price. They also make you use some piece of junk to connect to the HDHomeRun and they limit your recordings to only one computer to either store or watch which is nothing Comcast ever did. I noticed here in Sun City I have seen few if any that are with them. Too bad they don't go under and some decent company can take over.

That's funny that the reason you don't have DirecTV is because they don't have the Pac-12, because the only reason I DO have DirecTV is because they DO have NFL Sunday Ticket.

That's why we need more options. Some people are in areas where they can't use Satellite or even cable in some places. While the DTV is fine for you, it's useless for me and for NFL I only watch Packers games and they are normally on a lot all over the country. Too bad none of the providers offer just a sports only package since everything else they have is mostly crap anyway. They are discontinuing most of the good shows they had.

The only thing I ever liked DTV for was I could change my address and watch all the Giants games in the summer. With Cox I just discontinue it during the spring and summer just need it for college football and basketball. I have an antenna and 4 computer tuners for all the local things.

Prove that these other providers have all the HD channels DIRECTV has plus the ones from your DIRECTV doesn't have master list.

thats direct's biggest problem, lying. i remember when they use to say they had more hd channels than dish, yet dish had TMC, AMC, DIY, BBC and others that direct didnt have. maybe direct was counting the 50 Rugby channels they have in HD. well they have them now. but stop with the lying. Hey we paid some of our customers to switch to dish just to prove how bad they are. if your the best then you dont have to constantly bad mouth the competitors. save your badmouth adds to give that money to your customers in the form of lower prices. thats how to increase customers. as for the customers they paid to switch, well i recognize the gal form a few tv show. that doesnt mean that she cant be a direct customer. but i doubt it.

To give this any kind of relevance, you really need to do a like list for all other content providers. That would allow folks to see who has the most HD content for their customers.

You may also want to do some research on "What is Life" as you appear to not have one. Next time you get so bored, do some volunteer work with an organization that does some good in your area. It will really make you feel good and give you an outlet for the pent-up anger you have for D*.

Tomcat - I think your rant is right on the money.
It appears that in many markets DirecTV does not carry an HD feed of PBS. For example, here on the central coast of California, all my "locals" are in HD, except PBS on 65, which appears to be a generic SD feed.
For me DirecTV is the HD leader in channels I could care less about.

all i remember is direct saying they had more HD channels than dish, funny because when i switched they didnt have AMC, TMC, DIY and quite a few more that wernt HD, i guess they meant they had more sports HD channels, you know, they ones nobody watches. ofcourse they have them now. i just feel that when a company makes all these false statements it just shows how hard up they are. my contract will be up soon so im thinking about switching back to dish. curious to see if dish is doing aall the advertising on the menu for movies and whatever else they think they can sell you. plus im still getting emails about my comp movie, you know = heres your complimentary movie, yeah right, as soon as you pay them.

Sports are a multi billion dollar entity in our culture, so someone obviously cared about the HD sports channels. I know I did, especially since HD was built on sports not cable channels like the aforementioned DIY or AMC. No one company is going to have every single channel that you hold dear within your heart.

Perhaps if you listed your TV model number and how and what equipment you have connected - post that in the correct section of the D* TV Form - Many here would be Glad to offer suggestions on how to correct your problem.

Hey, help me out. I'm trying to understand this thread. Direct TV charges me 10.00 a month for HD service, another 10.00 a month to record the HD channels, 3.00 a month to share them on all the TVs, 5.00 a month for an extra 5 HD channels, and you are saying that they are not really HD? $30 a month or $360. a year. HUH?

This thread was started in 2009 when DIRECTV had quite a few channels that were not yet being broadcast in HD over their system.

Over the years D has added HD channels so you are in fact receiving the majority of channel in HD. Obviously there are some channels that are still in SD. It always possible one of those maybe a favorite of yours. If so contact D and ask/urge them to broadcast in HD. In my case all the channels my wife and I are interested in are in HD.

The new AT&T-DIRECTV company would be in a position to dominate the pay TV and Broadband categories.
