Ok....take it easy here peeps. I'm not trying to call my felow HD freaks Morons. Touchy, Touchy....?
You guys are great! I am much more informed thanks to all of you.
It's just a personal opinion I have. I honestly have totally stopped watching the networks for almost 5 years and have found nothing worth my time. The hype over god awful reality shows for example is way to much for me to handle even seeing commercials for them. Tells alot of society today I feel. To each they're own.......just not in my home that's it.
In hindsight, I think I was kinda talking out loud trying to justify switching to D* and what I'd miss....like you guys care about my problems.....my bad.
I'm a huge basketball fan and that's my must see TV. I had the channel for 2 years and LOVED it till Comcast took it away. NBATV is an awesome channel I'm sorry. It offers the most informative b-ball related programming to date. Many bios shows, classic games and also happens to be the definiative guide for those that choose to order the NBA package. (which Comcast carries) In game reports and a scoreboard that show running scores and times and what channel it's on are fantastic. I feel like I'm talking to nobody but oh well. Imagine for example......24/7 American Idol..or Survivor.....or whatever your program of choice is.
Weather you care for sports or basketball I don't care. All I'm looking for is an educated reply that can help me figure out what the poitics are that are stopping Comcast from picking it up. I'm actually very curious. It may be the NBA's fault, I don't know. What happened in the Time Warner deal that they worked it out? Why are they blacking out INHD? Just thought this would be the place where someone may know something.
Dang.....I didn't know I was in such a minority it appears. Discovery channel is ten fold over say NBC IMHO. But I guess I should check out the hot new Whoopi or Scrubs this week!!!! Hmmm maybe I should watch people eating molded squid guts for an hour...decisions....decisions.
Thanks in advance to whomever actually has any info.......b
Sonoma.....I've definatly been excited for the 6208's. Thanks for the head up.
Ianken..guess that explains my 57" HDTV, 300+ DVD's and basing my life around certain HD broadcasts then.
