I know it was already mentioned that Directv is clamiing 130 HD by year end. Now dish is saying 150 by year end and both companies are touting some 1080p services. Cmon uverse, you technically have no capcaity limitations and somehow the capacity challenged sat companies are adding like crazy.
They will NEVER have 1080p on Sat or Dish. Their bandwidth is just not there for it. They already had to downsample current 1080i offerings to 1440 x 1080 or even 1280 x 1080 to save on bandwidth.

You took the words right out of my mouth! I read those on UU this morning as well.
Maybe satellite is starting to feel the scare from UV, like Cable? Houston's cable is now offering a free Wii with a 2-year-contract; a few months ago, they were giving away HDTVs...guess that didn't win enough people over.
I noticed 4 new 2Wires on my wireless, and have seen 2 neighbors get installed recently. They've been here a while, so probably coming from cable (no dish on South side).
All I can say is if Uverse doesn't have what you want, stay where you are. You're not going to scare them by comparisions.

I don't think anyone was attacking you...we just see this over and over again about Dish/DirectTV/Cable.
I'm sure ATT is well-aware of what the competitors are doing, and as RC stated, they have their own rollout schedule for HD, and none of us here knows what that is.
It's different technology than satellite, and I don't know what is involved in getting new HD channels. Might even just be tied up in negotiations? Don't cable and satellite companies OWN certain channels?

Why are people posting on the same things in this forum and UU when they are getting the answers on one of the sites? If you see or hear about an article don't take it as face value and then post in these forums saying UV needs to step up. 1080p is blu-ray as I understand it. And there is no real-time recording of blu-ray (that has been made available to the public). Up to now blu-ray has been authored on dvds that is why you can see 1080p when you watch a blu-ray dvd. I understand you want the hd channels but when you get more you will complain because all of them are not something you want to watch. Or you will call them stretch tv, or whatever you won't be happy with. Right now we have Uverse with all of it's benefits and problems. There are no contracts and dish, directv, and comcast will welcome you back with open arms. And for those of you who feel this is a "deal breaker", I saw no such deal in Uverse's ads saying that they would rollout more hd channels than all of the other service providers. And for those of you who like to post the same issues here and on UU, feel free to copy this one and post it on UU.
I am not sure what you mean by this but there are other 1080p sources that are not just blu-ray. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1080p
As for the blu-ray recording, BR recorders/burners and software have been available for sometime in laptops/desktops, BR add-on burners and stand-alone units.
