I didn't think there was an HD channel that Direct didn't offer?


Their ads sure come off that way.

Take this for what it is worth.


That is indicating September, 2009 for the launch, and I have heard estimates as late as December.


Given that, it typically takes a month or so of testing/tweaking before the new bird is online....so I wouldn't expect to see any new HD channel on DirecTV until at least the first quarter of 2010.

They have some good shows on E! HD.

Good: "Kendra," 'Reality Hell," "Chelsea Handler Lately," EDIT: "Keeping Up with the Kardashians".

Just Okay: "Denise Richards: It's Complicated," EDIT: "Courtney & Khloe Take Miami."


Good (Style HD programming, sometimes shown on E! HD):

"Giuliana & Bill."



I want E! HD on D* (not just on my local Uverse; and of course, Travel Channel HD).

Good marketing department. There are quite a few that D* doesn't offer.

At this point, it's about half of all HD channels that DirecTV doesn't offer. There are presently 141 nationally available channels. DirecTV carries 71.


But I suspect they will close that gap significantly once that new satellite is up and running.

The current target dates are:

D12 satellite construction completion on 10/11/09.

Launch Date 10/15/09-11/15/09.

LIVE 1/31/10 & then a rollout of channels in that Q1/Q2-10 frame.

Almost a year later... Any update on E! HD on DIRECTV?
