mediacom needs to up their game. this staggering is just b.s. i went into my local office and asked when this area was going to get the hd channels of a&e, history, ans sci-fi. the csr there told me that they just found out at the office, the previous day, that they have usa hd. i was dumfounded. i told them that it's been on for a week now. the techs didn't know. the office staff didn't know. so, i told them to come here and check out this website for all of the latest news on updates and about home theater. she wrote down the url and the forum threads to click on to get here. i guess now we are the pipeline of info for mediacom. crazy! she did say that mediacom is planning to add more hd channels by winter. channels like the weather channel, animal planet. you know, crap that people only watch when their is nothing else on. yah!
