Re: [X1] x1 or new hd in pittsburgh area (non-adelphia)?

said by mikedz4:

I was told that I may see 5 or 6 new channels depending on bandwidth and programming obligations.

5 or 6 HD channels take up the same bandwidth as 2 analog channels.

So how many other analog channels do you have that are going to be turned off? 30? 60? more?

If it's important, back it up... twice. Even 99.999% availability isn't enough sometimes.

I have 14 analog channels left to go to digital. So if 5 hd is equal to 2 analog then I SHOULD have room for a bunch more hd channels. I'm sure some of that bandwidth will be reserved for future services and maybe they will add other channels but I can't see how I would only see 5 or 6 new hd channels.
And I am paying $215 a month for digital premier plus an hd box.

I do want the x1 service also.
