The note about the Oregon systems is really exciting. It makes me hope that moving Expanded Basic from analog to digital is coming to my / our area (Baltimore). Is this the first mention of Comcast related to SpikeHD, NickelodeonHD, and TVOneHD? I haven't seen them mentioned on other Comcast systems yet, not even Chicago and Boston (the two big dogs on the Comcast high HD channel list).
Also, if I am correct, this is the first time I have seen a Comcast system actually committed to turning on GameHD for the MLB Extra Innings and NHL Center Ice, and TeamHD for NBA League Pass. Does anyone else already have these HD channels on their Comcast systems? Again, here is hoping this is a sign of channels to come. If so, maybe I'll actually go back to ordering MLB Extra Innings from Comcast next year.
From my count, that jumps that areas systems from about 37 channels (I used Corvallis zip code of 97330) to 66 channels. That's quite a jump. I'd gladly give up the analogs on my office tv to go from about 40 channels to about 65-70.
