It has been several months now. I hope that AT&T will eventually add the IFC On Demand and Festival Direct VOD channels. They feature programming not available anywhere else, particularly hard-to-see foreign films. Granted, the audience for this kind of thing is small. There's more money to be made on sports. But with all those channels, it would be nice to get these IFCs. We had them with Comcast and almost kept Comcast for that reason alone. But their service was just so horrible we had to go with the reliable, high-quality AT&T even though it lacks this programming that's really important to me.
Please consider adding the IFC VOD channels. Thanks!

Shoe - I don't understand your question. Please clarify.
I guess I do not understand why people think this is such a must have channel that and Sundance look like sleepers to me......but I can be wrong

Hi Shoe -
I guess it's just that I usually like smaller, quirky, character driven movies better than the big blockbusters -- I'm probably in the minority there so I understand that many people might want other types of channels -- but I hope as more choices become available, AT&T will remember us indy movie fans.
A bit off topic, but here's an example of a recent indy movie I really enjoyed: "Outsourced." It's about the manager of a call center in the U.S. who is sent to India to help open a call center there -- it's a fascinating glimpse into Indian culture and the whole phenomenon of outsourcing -- plus it has really interesting characters.
