I do NOT work for DirecTV, so I do not have any way to know this. From past history, they did NOT to this day put out a press release when they added TNT-HD. I do not have the answer on this at all.

Here is a C&P of the memo I received regarding this. I believe the source, I have no reason to doubt it, but as I say above, I don't work for them. What I find interesting though, is that Brine (who claims to work for them as a CSR) has posted IDENTICAL info - and so had a poster named audi. We will find out soon enough I guess if its accurate."On 7/1/2006, HD RSNs will be launching on the following networks in certain local markets areas:
"Games Only": YES, FSN Prime Ticket, FSN West, FSN Bay Area, FSN Southwest, FSN South, FSN Detroit, FSN Florida, STO, FSN North, FSN Northwest, FSN Arizona, FSN Rocky Mountain, Turner South. NESN will be HD 24/7.
In August 2006, CSN Chicago and CSN Mid-Atlantic will go 24/7 in HD. SNY will be available for games only.
In mid-October 2006, MSG, FSN New York, Sun Sports, and FSN Ohio will be available for games only.
This channels WILL NOT be available CONUS, only available in the local channel market. For example, NESN will be available only for customers who can get Red Sox as a part of their regular RSN."
As I have tried to make clear, this is info I received from someone I believe, thus I chose to post it (with the full knowledge that it is 'rumor' until it is FACT). I have put NO spin on it as you can see, this is the exact info I received in its original wording C&P. There is someone else who for reasons unknown to me wants to try and make this a challenge, it is NOT. I am posting info as given to me, I have no vested interest in its outcome except to enjoy more Yankee HD games this season.
Frankly, I have no more that I can add to it, I have heard of no changes from the individual (and yes, I have since spoken to him) that passed this on to me.
