    I inquired with DirecTV a few weeks ago on this very same question. I was told that the "official" policy is not to announce new channels until they are available. In other words, they won't commit to anything.
    I'm switching to Dish as soon as my credit card and my wife will allow it!

    You will probably get more information over at avsforums.com. As for new channels, DirecTV said at CES that they would add ShowtimeHD within a few months and they are currently in negotiations with Mark Cuban for a HD sports channel. The HD sports channel will most likely be exclusive to DirecTV.
