Big Ten Network
Dish beat DirecTV for History Channel HD though, that just went active on their STB's a few mins ago.
Looks like Comcast SFBA will be dead last in HD channels (again) in a week or so.
PS DirecTV is turning on 6 MORE HBO HD channels next month or so, or so I heard from a friend working with them.
This is even more galling for me, as I'm in 860 Mhz plant, and there is a ton of capacity that doesn't even have a QAM carrier up on it at all. I feel badly for the 550 areas, but how come we have all this empty capacity that could be filled with HD channels that the DBS guys are already broadcasting, at a lower price than Comcast is charging?
