Kudos to UV for their aggressive free preview marketing program. Red Zone, Sports Package, Full Moon Horror are a few of the latest for free viewing. Some restriction do apply, of course. What a great way to give members a chance to see what the programs are like. Sure UV wants to sell the extras but free is FREE.
I'm just curious if nothing else. I'm a die hard NFL (Go Pack Go) fan but would never pay for Red Zone but would check it out for free.
Not trying to start a big discussion here but ... We still do not have MSNBC in HD! Don't go there with content discussions. It's already been done, thank you. It is a major network worthy of HD. IMHO.

For example, CNN still has the black sidebars on a ton of programming.
Still, if MSNBC was added in HD, it would be a very good thing. It would be up there in the 1200 block for people to easily switch between the channels. If you don't like MSNBC, you could easily block it. If you do or don't like it, you wouldn't have to pay anything extra.

Nevertheless, MSNBC HD has been out there for a couple of months and its programs like Hardball, Ed Show, Countdown, etc are in HD. It would be nice to have it available for those who like it. Having all the news channels in the same 1200 area is a good thing for those who like to watch cable news. ATT should get it before Comcast buys all the NBC networks and jacks up the rates.
Last time AT&T added HD channels, they added several at one time.
Is it possible that AT&T would be stockpiling until there are a lot of HD channels to add, then doing it all in one push? It may be easier to add several channels (HD and SD) at one time, rather than repeating the "add one channel" several times over the course of several months.
