    Under the agreement with Discovery Communications, DIRECTV will launch four simulcasts - Discovery Channel, TLC, Animal Planet and The Science Channel - and two other channels to be named and launched by Discovery at a later date. The HD feeds of the four existing networks will launch in September.

    DIRECTV also has an agreement in place with Starz to launch three new HD movie channels: Starz Edge, Starz Comedy and Starz Kids & Family, as well as Starz's East and West coast HD feeds. The new Starz HD channels, featuring first-run hit movies, and the Starz East and West HD channels, will also launch in September.

    I'm not expecting a lot of HD content. Do we really expect Chiller, a network not really known for deep pockets, to re-telecine all of those old Alfred Hitchcock shows? Maybe in 2015, when everything else is in HD.

    SCI-FI!!!
    I just wonder what all those people who went to Cable are thinking now. Gee maybe they will add all those HD feeds. I think not. Get ready for a bunch of people deciding to come back after they see the growing list coming to Directv.
    I think I will finally put Stars back on my bill. Now to figure out how to get a second HD DVR installed for all the stuff I want to record.

    Well, we gotta get that satellite in orbit first. And tested. And running before you can gloat just yet.
    But it sure looks promising. :D
