Re: [HD] Any New HD Channels scheduled in future?
said by shark2k:It's been suggested, though we can't know for sure, that--unlike the last time--contracts are not holding up additions now. It's technology.
All I know if this is indeed true, that is great news for us and hopefully contracts are being negotiated for us to be getting some of the national HD channels out there that we do not have. I for one would love to have Cartoon Network HD and DIY Network HD. If Verizon can get this change implemented it will give them more time for going IPTV (if that does indeed happen).
Based on recent additions and some old promises, I would guess contracts are already in place for most of the remaining HD channels--certainly any premium channels not carried, and probably all the channels distributed by Comcast, Discovery (including BBC America), Disney, Time Warner, Fox, and Viacom.
I think this is why Twitter Joe is willing to tell us "what's in the pipeline" because the contracts are in place.
