Uh, what are you trying to say? HBO IS a "premium" channel by all cable systems that I know of.

... excerpts from an email from George Douglas (VP of Mktg, TWC Raleigh)--

"... the Raleigh division will be going to switched digital in the 2nd quarter of 2007. In the meantime, I expect to launch MTV-HD in early January and, hopefully, A&E by the end of the month. I received word from corporate that ESPN2-HD is still not ready and it may be a couple of months. Hopefully sooner. I cannot explain why several TWC divisions have announced they are carrying ESPN2-HD."

awesome ... no CinemaxHD or StarzHD but at least I can see constant reruns of concerts from bands I don't care about in HD. TWC move fast on channels of insignificance.

I heartily agree with you on 2,3 and 4 to a lesser extent. TWC in Albany, NY just gave us ESPN2 HD, MTV HD and A&E HD, however I don't think I have run across anything on A&E yet except for CSI:Miami that has actually been in HD. The worst was a show on the movie "We Are Marshall" that was postage-stamp size because it was letterboxed within a 4x3 frame. They could have at least zoomed it.

letterbox or not keep it OAR if it's not in 16:9 HD then leave it alone. Having to "Fill the screen" is so 2001.

Flipped through the new A&EHD and MTVHD channels over the past few days. Have yet to see a widescreen show on A&EHD, seems to be stuck on some kind of old Dog the Bounty Hunter marathon. Nothing like SD white trash to show of an HD channel! And the constant hip hop awards show rerunning on MTVHD are also of little interest.

Gimme SciFi and The Food Network in HD and I will bow down to the 1080 gods!!

All I gotta say is:

GACK!

It was actually announced that HBO was running the Star Wars movies in January. Are you ready for this? Just checked the schedule, the ONLY ones in January are episodes 3 and then 1. Looks a lot like we're going to have do some semi-long term DVR storage to ever hope to watch them in order... talk about high, hard ones!

I don't believe in filling the screen if it changes the aspect ratio, but I guess you didn't get the point; OAR was 16x9 but there was black around all four sides because it was letterboxed inside a 4x3 frame.

You've watched The Wire and have issues with it? I really hope you're not simply dismissing it as crack dealers gone bad. It is far and away one of the best written shows on TV.

When TWC plugs itself with TV commercials the commercials are suppose to be representitive of the market you're watching it in, isn't it? I saw a commercial played twice yesterday that was advertising HD channels we don't actually get like DiscoveryHD, and some of the locals. I'm thinking about calling them and asking them why in the hell they are false advertising by claiming they carry channels that they actually don't.

It's not a question of "like" it's a question of importance.

There are multiple channels that have been around for a long time that TWC are missing that have been specifically requested by viewers multiple times.

Where does MHD fit into this? it's been on the air for virtually no time at all in comparison and has probably been requested by almost no-one when put side by side with other channels like ESPN2, Starz and Cinemax.

Okay, PPV on HD and MTV, are these available in California? Is anyone getting it? About a month ago, I saw the PPV HD on my line up and now it disappeared? What gives? I called TWC and told me they are showing but not yet available?

I don't have a signature...

INHD2 722 was dropped today on TWC in NYC (its still being sent though if you check the frequency and program # using the channel diagnostics...)

No replacement yet

Speaking of things not in the channel directory, TWC NE Ohio here at one point was sending one of the PBS channels in the clear yet it has never appeared in the program guide (hidden or otherwise). I no longer have a clear QAM tuner (because I uprgraded to a monitor) so I'm not sure if it still exists.

I never checked to see if they ever broadcasted programs in HD or with 6ch AC3. I don't remember what the video resolution was, either.

TWC Charlotte is replacing INHD2 with UHD (yesssss!) and has begun a slow rollout of Mystro Navigator (I don't have it yet but some do).

Big fan of Knight Rider and The Equalizer? Hey, I'm always desperate for more HD programming and always happy when TWC adds something, since it happens so rarely. But I have to say, this channel pretty much blows.

UHD is redoing its entire lineup. They are showing many more movies now, including the entire "Back to the Future" trilogy. I agree it hasn't been much to write home about in the past, but I fully expect that to change over the next year.

Was spinning through the guide and I see that UnHD is going to be running Northern Exposure in HD in January.

Funny, 722 (InHD2 in NYC) just totally disappeared, rather than the channel being re-tagged "HD Specials" like the now F/T YES and MSG HD channels.

I called TWC SA to ask them about the replacement channel for INHD2 and the rep kept trying to convince me that I wasn't losing any programming because they were combining INHD1 & INHD2 to one channel. When I told him it was impossible to provide the same amount of content in one channel as it is the other, he told me that both INHD channels were on demand so I could just pick what I wanted to watch at any time

He finally did put me on hold and checked with somebody else who told him there were no plans for another HD channel to fill the void at this time.
