I really enjoy HDNet and the HBO HD channel from DirecTV. HDNet is free, and the HBO feed comes with my regular HBO subscription; thus no extra costs. And network, OTA broadcasts are, of course, free. However, Discovery Channel's HD programming is beginning on Dish Network for a fee. Mark Cuban says that HDNet will expand programming, but may become a subscription package. See this link: HDTV Article I just can not see myself shelling out yet more bucks to DirecTV for HD. If HD becomes subscription only, that's when I'll seriously think about DVHS for programming. Anyone feel the same....or not?
