Evidently I'm not lucky enough to have an engineering card (don't know what that is) because those channels aren't showing up on my DirecTV box.

Hey, any idea what all these channels are going to cost in 08?

The DirecTV software engineers are the only ones with the card, so don't worry about not having one... As for the price, nothing will change this year... But no word yet on what this will all cost when Januray rolls around...

I've been wondering what channels these would end up on. Directv obviously has no sense of grouping. You've got a couple of sports stations then Disney then more sports and so on. Wouldn't it make more sense to group all of the sports together, the family channels together, etc.? I digress. I can't wait for September 16 though!

Those are all HD?

Looks like I might have to switch to DirectTV! Right now I'm on HD cable and I get something like 10 HD channels.

Default 78 Channels??? No fair!

Lucky.

I wish I had 78 HD channels (or the promise of almost that many come Sept. 16)

I think I have something like 14 at the moment with Time Warner......

Sweet. I was looking for a list as to which new HD channels were coming on line in September. Looks like the main channels that I watch are all on that list. Thanks.
