    Well TWC in Orange County CA just added it today. It is working for my digital cable box, but when I tune to the channel in TiVo it shows me the standard "you need to subscribe to this channel."

    For those with it working on TiVo, did it just work? Or did it require a "hit" from the cable co?

    Here in Comcast of Monmouth County territory it was added and is accessible on channel 220; just no guide data (or even mention of the channel in the guide) from TiVo yet. I filed a lineup change report just now so that'll happen soon enough one way or another.

    I know - what kind of sense does that make? Why wouldn't they have him call the Sox game since he's obviously more knowledgeable about them than the guys who did?

    It just arrived in the last day or so in New Orleans on Cox; no guide data yet (or for WDSU-DT, which returned last week). I didn't stay tuned long enough to get queasy from stretch-o-vision.

    It showed up today on TWC West LA. It's on a placeholder channel right now with no guide data.

    That's okay, I can do manual recordings for Halo games.

    Showed up at 735 on Oakland Comcast (and probably other San Francisco Bay Area Comcast territories). No guide data yet. I've seen rumors that Comcast had originally scheduled it to be officially added to the lineup on October 15 (looks like someone didn't check out the baseball palyoff arrangements).

    I thought I overheard Remy and Orsillo taking about Orsillo going off to an interview a couple weeks ago. They were bantering about the style of his delivery. Is he leaving NESN for TBS??

    I like the pair. They do add to the Red Sox game for me.

    I would bet many of the TBS announcers have other jobs during the week calling games for local teams. He'll probably be able to do both, just be absent from the occasional Sox game on a Sunday afternoon (TBS will show games every Sunday next year).

    I know I heard Ron Darling on last night's Cubs-Diamondbacks game. He's certainly not leaving SNY for TBS.

    Jon Miller does the Giant's radio broadcast during the week and just misses Sunday games in order to do the ESPN game.

    Didn't read the whole thread so this could be a smeek.

    I'm in Orlando with Brighthouse cable and we now have it. I think i noticed it sometime last week, but never paid attention to it.


    OT: I also noticed that we now receive Food HD, History HD, HGTV HD, all these additions happened sometime in the last week or so.

    I got TBS HD just in time for the playoffs. But WOW is the baseball coverage AWFUL.

    -Frank Thomas said maybe 2 words
    -The play-by-play and color guys know next to nothing (with the exception of Steve Stone)
    -Ernie belongs on basketball and basketball only

    I got home and had the message on my S3 that TBS-HD (726) had been added to my lineup! Great, just in time for the Indians/Yankees Game 1.

    Except, I just get a black screen and "channel not available."

    This is Brighthouse, St. Pete. Does this mean the channel SDV? :eek: :mad:

    I guess I was just being impatient. Tonight I found I was able to tune to TBS-HD on ch 726 just fine! It was great watching the Indians take a 2-0 lead over the Yankees in HD. ;)

    Yeah, Tony Gwynn and Skip Carey know nothing about baseball. Granted I find most color commentators unnecessary, but to say they know nothing is sorta silly.
