DirecTV is setting up "Remote Booking" as we speak & it should be on line soon.
I am looking forward to this feature.

I just started the "Remote Booking" Beta for DirecTV tonight!
So far it's working smoothly but I still have to play with it some more.

Hopefully it can be released nation wide soon.

I've noticed new HD channels popping up lately... it's fantastic!

I am so happy I dumped cable for Direct TV!

You can also check channel 92 for details on HD channels.

If you have a Mpeg 4 capable receiver like the HR20 & have the B-Band converters hooked up you should be getting the first channels listed.
I'm guessing there will be a notice in our next bills but there is no reason to wait to start enjoying all these new HD channels!

You need to change the channels in your favorites list for them to show up.
For example there will be 2 History channels listed at channel 269, uncheck the SD channel & check the HD channel.

It's great we are finally starting to get the content for our HDTV's, Enjoy!!
