Re: We need a new push for NasaTV and Cartoon Network HD

said by FiosTV1080I:

Q4 of this year if we get lucky for Cartoon Network in HD

That would be awesome. I'm tired of having to go to iTunes or elsewhere to find HD versions of cartoon network shows, especially since the SD feed has been letterboxed for at least two years.

Not to cause problems but why should a channel that only shows cartoons take precendent over channels with actual human beings or hell even Spanish channel in hd? I don't watch cartoon net ever so I fail to see how that channel is a worthy add - though I'd take it over stupid fsc hd which gets no ratings but demand was so strong for it by 2 people. We should focus on more mainstream/ hot broads channels and not cartoons.

Cartoon Network has a lot of adult oriented content and a lot of beloved content, and as other have mention before, animation benefits the most from HD. Would love to see the rest of the Black Dynamite season and upcoming Robot Chicken and Boondocks in HD. Night and Day.

Agreed. But I did not know this until I saw it for myself. This is probably why Ndnnf23 is confused, if he/she never watches it. There is some (not all) animation that looks amazing in HD.

Also, believe it or not, Ndnnf23, but Cartoon Network is a top-10 cable channel in the ratings. Its nighttime block of "Adult Swim" programming gets very big ratings by cable standards, even for reruns. Cartoon Network is BY FAR the highest-rated channel not in HD on FiOS.

Cartoons are big business these days, and not just for kids. It's not the 70s anymore. A lot of creative people figure they can get away with crazier and more surreal stuff in cartoon form than in live action form. And they can.

As for Ndnnf23's call for "hot broads channels" -- umm -- LOL -- maybe I shouldn't say anything. OK, how about this: I'm all in favor of that!

I find one cartoon network show during the daytime that could be seen as a 18-34 demographic success and that is the regular show. I am glad that Time Warner Cable launched their startover service on cartoon network HD on the iGuide boxes in my area and the regular show is startover enabled. So I feel sorry for you guys not having Cartoon Network HD I live in a Uverse area so yeah TWC is better.

There's two. Don't forget about Adventure Time.

Gumball is also pretty good but seems to have less of an 18-34 following.
