Who's got DIRECT TV???

Apparently December is "U2 Month" on Direct TV...throughout the day (all 24 hours) they'll be palying a ton of U2 programs and videos.

I would LOOOVE a copy of anything that can be put on a tape...or tapes (esp. videos - I don't have cable!)...I'll gladly repay you on Tuesday! (like with blank tapes and S&H, etc.)

TIA!

Yay me! My parents have been talking about getting a dish for a while, and it looks like we're gonna be getting one in December cause I kept nagging them about it being U2 month..... but even if we do get it I won't be able to enjoy it for long cause I'm going away for Christmas vaction.

Have I lost my mind? Just ordered myself DirecTV, YAY! It'll be installed on 12/7, so I'll still have 3 weeks to enjoy U2 month!
It is only 35.00 to install, the dish is free, and then it will be 38.00 a month, and right now I pay 71.00 for digital cable!
COOL! U2 MONTH!

Methinks I am blind... I checked out the directtv.com site and found nothing about U2... not in the "concerts" or "music" link, not here, not there, not anywhere...

If I post again please tell me to GET OFF THE INTERNET AND GET BACK TO STUDYING!!! :-)

Hmmmm, I know my boss has DirectTV, but I really couldn't ask him to tape any U2 stuff for me. Ack. I already spend way too much time thinking about U2 at work.

Alrighty.... this was posted on U2.com. If anyone is interested, I would be more than happy to make a few extra copies if it's a solid four hour block, just let me know and we can work something out.

Cold and Wet December Day?
No problem. December has been declared U2 Month at DirecTV.

December has been declared U2 Month at DirecTV, four solid hours of U2 progamming, starting with Elevation Live From Boston (a 90 minute cut) and featuring documentaries, videos, interviews and rare footage.

Premiering on Saturday, December 1 at 6:00 AM (ET), "U2 Month" will air on DIRECTV channel 103, 24 hours a day through December 31.

This four-hour U2 event will include a concert film of the band's sold-out Elevation Tour 2001, recorded live in Boston this past June. Other than the limited exhibition on DirecTV, this long-format version is only available on U2's new DVD.

DirecTV will also premiere more than two hours of additional U2 programming including never-before-seen archived interview footage and music videos.

Viewers who tune in to the programming block can expect to see - "U2 Legends" produced by VH1 - the making of "All I Want Is You" never before seen in the U.S. - "The Sweetest Thing" video. - "Bullet the Blue Sky" filmed during the Rock the Vote election campaign. - the Trabantland and Lovetown documentaries - the "Lemon," "Please," "One," and "Beautiful Day" music videos.

OMG!!!! Will I EVER get to see ANY of these things???
I live in a tiny country called Israel, I'm sure you all heard of it... where they don't show anything that involves U2, and we also have MTV Europe and VH1 Europe, who also show nothing of U2!
So, I'll just go sit on the corner and cry now
Okay, rant over, sorry guys

I saw a commercial for it on my direct tv...of course no one could see my excitement cause they were all gone...but hmm...24 hours of U2 for the month of December...I'd say December will be pretty packed with U2 I'm sure I could also tape a few copies for people too...

PS...I had a fortune cookie today, and it said "Tomorrow Will be an important day for you..." and tomorrow I'm going to the concert...LOL, I just might sue the fortune cookie people if it doesn't come true
