    I spent an hour on the phone on Thursday evening with no luck. The CSR had me restarting the box and was removing and adding the service several times. I got the Premier pack deal with ST + Superfan, so I should have pretty much everything they offer, but I get a message on the four Starz channels telling me that the program is not purchased, even though I can get them in SD and everything else!

    It's supposed to be added on 10/3 here in Comcast of Monmouth County territory (and most every other Comcast system in NJ)... channel 220.

    No word on it here, yet. And it'd better be on by Thursday...

    Per an Executive Care rep, Comcast Chicago is working on getting it launched by Wednesday.

    A bunch of my so called "HD" channels don't appear to be HD, or are less than meeting my expectations...

    Some of the HD widescreen 16:9 content looks like it has been pre-stretched for my convenience...

    HD-TBS is one of the ones that seems to have these issues...

    Both TNT and TBS stretch SD content to fill the screen. It looks terrible, luckily my TV has an aspect ratio button that fixes it in one push. Neither station shows HD more than a few hours a day, mostly Law and Order and some movies, but the palyoffs should look good.

    What a great tagline that would be!

    TBS-HD: pre-stretched for your convenience

    or:

    TBS-HD: we stretch the content so you don't have to

    :D :rolleyes:

    What channel did they assign it to? I am TWC in Orange County, CA, but it doesn't look like they added it. My normal HD channels are from 400 - 425ish...

    Just got off the phone with a CSR and they said there are "no current plans to add TBS-HD", though she didn't sound like she knew what she was talking about... I thought TWC was supposed to be doing a nation-wide rollout today?

    778 here, but that's because our HD channels are in the 700's. We're a former Adelphia system. I bet when they add it there, it'll be near TNT-HD. (TBS-HD here is 778, TNT-HD here is 779.)

    I have seen a number of reports that it would be national for TWC, but not everyone would be up today. Keep checking. I'm guessing Wednesday might be more likely, as that's the start of the actual playoffs.

    Thanks for the reply... I don't need to reboot my box or anything (or for the case of tivo manually do anything) do I? Was tivo aware of the new channel?

    I rebooted my box Monday, but I don't think that did it...the channel didn't show up until later in the day, long after that.

    Good question about TiVo. I don't have it on my HD box, so I don't know how quick it'll get added into that lineup. I'm of no help, there...

    Allegedly, Comcast in Chicago is working to add TBS HD on channel 219. There is no guarantee it will be up in time for the game Wednesday night...

    from highdefforum

    "Thank you for contacting Comcast Cable. With the MLB Divisional
    playoffs
    starting Wednesday (airing on TBS) we are making plans to launch TBS HD

    earlier than originally scheduled.

    Our goal is to have the channel available by the time the first Cubs
    game starts on Wednesday, however due to the technical work needed to
    launch, we aren't able to guarantee it for Wednesday's game.

    When launched, TBS HD will be on channel 219
    Requirements: a subscription that includes Digital Classic and
    appropriate HD equipment and TV will be needed to receive TBS HD.



    Thank you for choosing Comcast.

    Sincerely,

    Demetria
    Comcast Customer Care Specialist"
