[HD] Comcast of Plaifield NJ: FX, Speed and Fox News HD - 06/02

Ad on the Star Ledger today, page 4:

Effective 06/02, the following HD channels will be added to Comcast lineup in Plainfield, NJ system:
Speed HD - channel 275 - Expanded Basic Service
Fx HD - Channel 276 - Expanded Basic Service
Fox News HD - Channel 277 - Economy Tier

And, once again, Comcast puts the unbelievable claim "Did you know a current channel lineup is available at www.comcast.com?" - Comcast should first fix the channel lineup in the website before making false claims like this one....

Neither ad that we've seen so far talk about Union... Maybe there was one in the home news tribune today?

I overlooked it. There is an ad in the APP announcing the aforementioned additions for June 2nd. Applies to Comcast of Monmouth, Ocean, Toms River & LBI.

I've seen it before where different ads are scattered around for different systems. i'm just thinking that we haven't found them all (and nothing like www.comcast.com/newjersey to tell us for sure).

The Star Ledger has it listed and it looks to me that the Union area is included. I'm in that area.

I actually tried using Comcast's customer service chat, and the best answer that I got from the rep was the listing of new HD that we got in "May" (actually, the ones from April), and that we would be notified after the fact. i even gave the rep the link to the ad from the Star Ledger that I posted earlier to show what I was talking about.

I am really really going to assume that these channels appear on June 2 (oh crap, that's next Tuesday). Maybe we'll get something else in July to replace the 2 we lost this month???

Star Ledger (Union Edition) had an add today. It was for "Comcast of Plainfield" only. Unfortunately I have Comcast of Union...

I will scan the add later...

FX HD, Fox News HD & Speed HD all live on Comcast of Ocean this morning. I thought that they wouldn't be live until tomorrow.

when do you think we'll get another set of HD? They recently removed 2 analogs and I think had some space open already, and this only takes up 1 analog slot.

Well it hasn't been added here to Union, so maybe I was wrong and this didn't apply for us...damn.

they had better add them by next Tuesday. I'd question this with a chat rep, but I've already found them to be clueless on this topic.

anything in the local papers for these channels coming to Comcast of Union NEXT Tuesday? just a hunch. nothing new posted on NJ.com (but they're not always on top of these things).

I didn't see anything in THNT today

However, i don't know if anyone noticed.. They did Repo MSNBC and TCM this week. Its no longer showing the DTA message.. So i guess that's a good sign...

Obviously I was wrong about Comcast in Union. But in case you didn't know, even though we stll cannot get F/X HD we can at least watch Rescue Me in HD by using On Demand.

These channels are all pixalated for me (all HD boxes) on the LBI system. Anyone else heard of problems with these (Channels 275-76-77)?

according to imdb.com tv listings & comcast.com/tv listings/whats on- comcast of union should have these channels as they are listed. But we never received them. Maybe they will be pushing them soon?

Comcast of New Jersey (Union II)- Only 39 HD channels and paying for what seems like over 100 hd channels.

My Tivo has been convinced that Comcast of Union has these three for a few weeks now but they aren't there.

Frankly, there is already too much of my cable bandwidth wasted on FoxNews. I don't need any more
