Re: BBC America HD coming?

Does anyone know which QAM BBCA was put on, and if it shares the QAM with another channel, and if so what that channel is?

Last night had perhaps some of the best episodes that Top Gear has ever ran in HD, including the one where they test whether or not they can drive to the North Pole! I have yet to find someone that doesn't like the original Top Gear--especially their traveling episodes--if they actually give them a chance.

Hardly the same show, over and over, as you contend.

Plus, Copper was pretty decent, and there are other original shows (e.g. Doctor Who, Luther) that are starting up new seasons shortly

doesn't History Channel also show Top Gear?...so you don't really need BBC-A to watch it

I hope you're kidding!!!! The History version is horrendous. The Brits are much funnier on the original.

BBC America has the British version. The History channel has the American version , I believe.

Frankly i'm a little surprised how many people seem to like this channel,I will never watch top gear i guess i'm not a car guy ,I recorded copper,i'm willing to watch another episode and give it a chance,but my wife bailed on me halfway through the show. I also watched a couple episodes of DR.WHO ,but i thought it was to silly but i might check it out again when the new season starts,The one show i really liked was LUTHER i set up a season pass fot that one!

The British show is the original, and has been on air for years. History started an American version a couple years ago, but the guys who are on it stink. You'd be surprised how many television shows we remake from England.

The UK Top Gear was shown on the Sci-Fi Channel or something odd like that a few years back. I seem to recall it was a few episodes then it disappeared.

Like many shows, it's syndicated all over the world. The US version was a little embarrassing.

There's hundreds of examples... don't forget Pop (American) Idol, lol.

The point is there are going to be as many people poo poo the BBC-A shows as like them. The same goes for the stuff on other channels. I for one can't understand the fascination with Adult Swim, Jersey Shore, yada yada yada but I get that others live for it. So all these arguments that BBC-A is a useless channel are silly. Oh, I forgot, it's all on Blu-ray, nevermind (with that argument we don't need many of the channels).

Yea - Could they get 3 less interesting guys. The 3 Brit guys are what make the show - I could really care less about sports cars - but I love the show because they are so awesome together.

I was looking forward to the addition of this channel, now that I've seen the content, not so much..Rather disappointed, but that's just my opinion...
