Looks like you are the 1st to get it. Nothing here in VHO8 yet.

Let the bitching begin!

These contractual HD adds blow in my opinion...

But, i'm sure those with kids out there will appreciate this one.

No sign of it here, and I thought Franklin Square was the same VHO as mine.

We do... or... we will, once we get it here in VH08 . Actually, my older kids were into DK for a while, some time ago. They've since moved on. But my next 2 are just hitting that age, and are likely to get into the channel pretty soon. Although, given how often I see them watching the SD versions of Disney and Nick, forcing me to pick up the remote to put on the HD versions of the channels (call it 'tough love'), they may not really notice. But I will... and if I have to sit through those shows, I may as well enjoy them in HD.

Yeah...having 3 toddlers of my own it stinks for them to have to watch the Nick channels in SD.....so HD kids channels are always welcome

I can't wait for FIOS to get their contractual channel additions done so they can add channels that are requested. I am pleased with FIOS and the service, but it is time to add channels that are requested.

Doesn't VZ still have to choose when to sign the contracts that these contractual additions refer to? If most of the HD channels have a SD simulcast, then back in 2005 when VZ signed most of the carriage agreements I don't think they included language that amounted to forcing VZ to add the HD feed.

I'm certainly no lawyer, but if VZ does have contractual obligation additions, I ultimately think VZ negotiated enough wiggle room so that they can add HD feeds at their discretion.

Because what we know about VZ is that they almost always want to be in control.

I'm sure they have plenty of them signed and ready to go. We all know the problem is space right now.

Steely-
Wow, you are right. I'm home sick today...

The channel wasn't there at 8am - neither in the guide or by manual...

Guess the mapping update was a bit late.

But, it is now here and in the guide in Delaware.

Sorry you're not feeling well but I'm sure watching a few hours of Discovery Kids HD will cure whatever ails you!

That's more than I can do here. All I get is a "you are not subscribed" message!

"The Hub" is a horrible name, I think!

I agree. That name wouldn't bring children's programming to my mind. People get paid to think of these names?

Technically Free .TV's would be an upgrade for me! I'm an old Transformers fan, so I've been looking forward to the new animated series, which reunites Peter Cullen (Optimus) and Frank Welker (Megatron). They'll also be airing 1980's Hasbro toons like the original Transformers, GI Joe, My little pony, etc. I don't forsee them having the amount of new content of Cartoon Network though, but again, when was the last Time Warner HD added to FIOS???

Anyone else find that girl more annoying the longer you watch her?

Yes, with her dumb smile and "Remember, I'm always here to help"

Wonder why this channel wasn't 759?
