Let's hope these channel additions apply to all markets. If so, this would pretty much clear out my wishlist!

ditto though i would like to also see local channels WLNY and WNJN in hd as the other 2 companies in the area offer them already.

I would love for the DC Metro area to get BBC America HD in time for the premiere of this year's Doctor Who Christmas special on December 25. Definitely number one priority on my list of channels we don't get.

Update: I got a TiVo message tonight that these new channels were on my system. But when I tuned in, "this channel is not authorized." No luck after calling RCN and rebooting, etc. although I did learn the channels are part of my subscription. Finally we decided that the channels haven't actually been turned on yet. Hope that saves somebody a call for service, at least til 12/20.

On 1/31, my Boston RCN TiVo message reported it was activated. Obviously not so. The TiVo Program info for 590 still lists updated Suindance HD programming.

Anyone have an update as to when Sundance HD may actually launch?

The official word is that it has been "postponed." That's all the information I've been able to get from RCN. I talked to Sundance as well, and they sounded a bit confused as to why it didn't launch on the 31st.
