  1. Are DirecTV customers with the old DVRs but HD capable TVs able to see this? Or do you need their HD box? …but if you already HAD the HD box, why would you need a Free Preview of the HD Xtra pack?

    I’m confused…anyone?

  2. Rina – these channels normally cost extra, and you need an HD receiver to get them. An HDTV with an older non-HD receiver will not be able to tune these channels.

  3. I have a genie and get HD channels, but I’m not able to get these channels still.
