Thanks for the date! Glad to see they finally made it down here from Philly!

From my research, NCC DE may be the final area of the Freedom Region to go through this HD add.

Now, only now to find out when the other 15 or so channels that Philly Center City has will be added (Cooking HD, DIY HD, etc...).

1 door closes, another opens...

There are only 9 channels that can be found on the Philadelphia system that aren't on the rest of the systems.

Those are C-SPAN 2 HD, Crime & Investigation HD, Cooking Channel HD, DIY HD, FearNet HD, Jewelry TV HD, MavTV HD, Reelz Channel HD and World Fishing Network HD. The City doesn't carry Bloomberg HD or TV Guide Network HD.

The rest are the differences in premiums (24-25 additional HD premiums depending on the system). I think it's more likely Philadelphia gets them dropped before anyone else gets those, considering what Comcast has done across the country.

of course they totally forget about the pittsburgh area. Comcast just gives the "we are working on it" deal. Sure you've been working on it for years. Maybe I will work on my bill as slow as you work on adding channels?

Doesn't it ever get old whining about the same old thing?

If you go that route you'll be working on getting your service disconnected for non-payment.

Nope. Check the HD Anticipation threads for DirecTV at dbstalk.

No matter who you have, the providers are just not good enough.

Go look at the Comcast lineup for Frostburg, MD (21532)

Those people can complain. Beyond that, it's just a little petty.

I didn't know WMCN had an HD channel. What other Comcast systems have that channel in High Definition?

Never mind everyone. Comcast just added WMCN HD on channel 794 yesterday for Comcast of Vineland, NJ. Sorry about that. lol.
