Don't know if these are on the list (not about to read through 8 pages of stuff), but here are a few:

* The Travel Channel HD
* MSNBC HD
* BBC America HD (evidently, Direct will not carry it on July 20, when it comes live, with Torchwood's week-long miniseries)
* Local PBS (more the fault of the local channel; however, I've asked if they could pipe these through via the national PBS HD channel and was refused politely)
* Many major network's local digital sub-channels (not technically HD, but the quality is very close)

If these are not included when my contract is up in December, it's Dish Network for me. Don'tcha love competition?

Actually, I know several black people (I live in the state with the most) and a good portion don't like BET. They claim that it makes all African-Americans look like thugs, gangsters, and/or criminals.

Well, I am not black, but I can see where there are coming from. I just like a lot of the black actors on the movies they show there. In fact, almost all of my favorite actors are black. Denzel, Jamie Fox, and of course Halle Berry.

I'm an HBO subscriber and they provide most of their meaningful shows in on their HD channel. IF you actually subscribe to all the movie services you list, you need to get a life. IMHO, most of Hollywood is the new "great vaste wasteland" although there are some gems from time to time.

I am a recent escapee from Comcast Cable and their bogus HD claims about leading the way ONLY because of their ONDemand crapo movies. After 2 years of no HD playoff baseball on TBS, I pulled that plug.

One day soon, all shows will be in HD, but it takes big money to send up the birds to beam down all that bandwidth.

Very true. It literally costs Dtv BILLIONS of dollars to send up new satellites. They don't have the capacity to just add every HD channel available right away. It takes time. The more customers they get will result in more money to send up more satellites. Then that will also result in more HD channels in the future.
