    Well, just a couple of months after getting these new HD channels they're now removing them.


    They are adding a few also, most notably BBC America HD.

    That's a fair swap, I wish they'd do that here

    BBC HD is what I wanted. This is a net gain for me.

    I saw teasers for several shows on BBC that I thought would be really good. When I watched them I was they contained a lot of :p anti or belittleing -American comments. I could live with one or two but it seemed like every show went out of their way to add a few. So I pretty much don't watch BBC any more. I was disappointed in most of the shows anyway-that had nothing to do with the anti-Americanism. I must be jaded or something--I even find Top Gear boring.

    They did the same thing here in Seattle the first of June, but we didn't get the only one I cared about (BBC America). :thumbsdown:

    Guide data was available I believe one day after Comcast added the channels.

    I don't have any of the premium channels, but I read elsewhere that those Starz, HBO, etc. channels that were removed would be available on Comcast On-Demand.

    Nothing to do on the TiVo end. Should just update when TiVo fetches the new schedule. I guess if your scheduled download is substantially later than the new channels coming on for some reason, you could just do a manual one. :)
