    In Boston, Comcast has stated that they're going to offer TBS-HD and CNN-HD starting on Tuesday, 2 October. USA-HD and History-HD will follow later in October.

    BHN here in Tampa announced 8 new HD channels added to their digital tier, and TBS-HD is supposed to be available now.

    I cannot get it on my S3 but a buddy across town with a BHN DVR says his is coming in fine. Does this mean the new channels are SDV? Anyone else in the Tampa area with an S3 (or THD) with CableCARDs able to get TBS-HD on 726?

    Comcast San Francisco is supposed to add it on October 3. They moved C-SPAN 2 from analog to digital to free up some bandwidth for it.

    I guess I'll wait until Monday and see if it works then before I try and call BHN customer support.

    edit: I actually can't even tune to 726 ("channel not available") because it's not listed in "channels I receive." I can't check signal strength either so I guess I have to wait for a Guide data update from TiVo.

    It won't work on any of the DirecTV DVRs with TiVo, you must have an H20, or HR20 receiver with 5 LNB dish to get the new HD channels from DirecTV.

    Cablevision is supposed to be getting it in time for the playoffs, FWIW.

    Hi! I get 726 and a bunch of HD stations on the SA8300HD. I'm on the BCBay / Gulf side of SPbg.

    Yeah, a buddy of mine with the BHN DVR can get it too ... so I'm guessing it's a CableCARD issue. :eek:

    Yeah, but whenever I call and they find out I have CableCARDs in a TiVo it's always a hassle. If I feel inspired, I might try and call. I did submit a lineup change to TiVo, though.

    Not here yet. (Here being TWC/Cleveland, that is.)

    From everything I've read, it looks like TWC is adding it nationally, probably on Monday, so I wouldn't be surprised to see it pop up. When TWC took over this system - former Adelphia - they added TNT-HD the day they took control of the cable system.

    Anyone hear anything about TBS-HD in the norhtern VA area for comcast?

    If we don't get it for the playoffs, this will suck.

    If there are any post-regular-season pre-playoffs tiebreaking games, they're on TBS too. Here's hoping it's in HD by October 1.

    I have it as part of the new rollout from D*. However, despite every program being marked as HD, none have been as yet - not even the movies.

    From what I've seen so far, the D* rollout is much ado about nothing - 21 new channels and most are not even showing HD programming - not to mention that four of them are not even available despite being promoted (Starz)!


    Here's hoping.

    I'm watching the four new Starz HD channels. Some customers have had to call to get them activated. Ask the CSR to drop your Starz HD and then immediately add it back. Or do the same to your Premier package if you sub to that. That seems to work for most everyone.
