Thought Comcast subscribers in Kitsap would be interested in a tidbit I got from a service call over the weekend. My 5100 was not tuning to HDTV, specifically HBO HD and ESPN HD. A signal sent to the box fixed that problem, but get this: SHO, HBO, and ESPN are the ONLY HD channels we will be able to get until Comcast runs a new fiber optic cable across the sound. Until then we are an island, and very little of the Seattle Comcast info applies to us.
The tech said the permits were in place, but there was only a small window during the year when the work could actually be done. He (of course) didn't know when it would be done.
I'm feeling 'bait and switched' right now, since I was told when I signed up that PBS was already online, KOMO in the next week, and the other locals by start of new season. Seems to have been untrue.
Jeremyfr, do you have contacts who can let us know when the fiber will be installed? If a short time, I may wait. If longer, or undetermined, is there a way to back out of the deal? I was very specific about my interest in HD content.
