[*]Add basic movies in HD: Turner Classic Movies and Fox Movie Channel.
[*]News channels Headline News and Bloomberg Television, too. Not as strongly ranking with me, but also C-Span and C-Span 2.
[*]The ones connected to Comcast: E!, Style, Oxygen, TV One, Sprout. If it were possible to bring in CS Philadelphia - that one as well.
[*]While on sports, Outdoor Sports and Sportsman Channel should be added.
[*]GSN, which is part owned by DirecTV.
[*]H2, especially after the change in History Channel, and then you can add Lifetime Movie Network partly because both are owned by A&E but for covering ground with women. So, LMN as well.
[*]TV Land, now that it is in HD, for original programming (even though I don't know if reruns of such shows from less than 20 years ago, like "Everybody Loves Raymond," get shown in HD). Enough original programming on there in HD.
[*]Channels connected with AMC should be in HD: Fuse, IFC, and We.
[*]The home shopping stuff, particularly QVC and HSN, as well.
[*]Galavision stands out with the foreign programming. RFD, for public interest.
[*]TV Guide Network, Reelz Channel, and Ovation should be in HD.
There are others, not on the list, that are worth adding:
[*]Ion TV, a national east coast feed.[*]Fearnet and G4, which used to be on DirecTV, are owned by Comcast.
[*]Nuvo TV, which was called Si TV, recently launched in HD.
[*]Epix, which has three screens, but is more considered a premium movie channel.
In order to make room for about 20 of those on the list, I guess DirecTV could make it possible by eliminating a lot of pay per views screens. Also do that with all west coast feeds. Move to On Demand or get rid of altogether both Shorts HD and The Audience Network.
