Yes, we got those as well. Some other ones that I can remember of the top of my head are Sportsmen Channel, Gospel Music Channel, Ovation, NG Wild, Style, Tennis Channel, NHL Channel, Crime and Investigation HD and Discovery ID.

Sounds like things are really ramping up. Nothing new here in west chatham though. I finally got MSNBC HD a week ago so that's a plus.

rjknyy, are all of the new channels in the 380-499 range or did they move them around?

For the most part. Indieplex and Retroplex are 355 and 356, while Crime and Investigation and Ovation are at 521 and 522.

WSAV has finally gone to an HD newscast as of yesterday, but no field HD cameras, just studio.

Comcast upgraded Richmond Hill on March 8. We got about a dozen new HD channels. I have noticed one difference today. Movies streamed in from Netflix were jerky. I'll check again tomorrow. Hope Comcast is not up to any dirty tricks.

I got that same notice about April 12th. I'm a little bummed it didn't happen since I was looking forward to it. I've waited this long, I can wait a little longer. Comcast and I haven't been getting along for the past couple months though...

The weird thing is that for the past week on their website under Channel Lineup I enter my address and it says I should have all of those channels already, even the Comcast rep that I chatted with tonight said it shows that its been changed but not in reality, unless it happens tonight at 2:30am which is when they do updates.

Just walked in the door from work and did the daily channel check. I'm happy to report I now have all of the promised new channels. Happy day!

Slight change of subject.

Has anyone in Savannah that subscribes to Comcast noticed an increased amount of Comcast "inserted" commercials featuring out of town businesses? Over the past few months, I have noticed:

*Car Commercials from Statesboro
*Car commercials from Brunswick (I-95 Toyota)
*Car Commercials from Jacksonville (Lexus)
*Commercials advertising some arts festival in Augusta (the only visible media sponsor was WRDW TV, no mention of Comcast or Xfinity)
*Commercials for "Wild Adventures" in Valdosta, targeted to Jacksonville

Is Comcast Savannah linked up somehow to Comcast in Jacksonville, Brunswick & Augusta? It seems to be, so if so, how?

Same here. No WGSA for quite a few days over the air. Their website which has always been hard to find (wgsa.tv) is showing down for maintenance and trying to contact them at info@wgsa.tv gets no replies.

I received an email reply today from an employee at WGSA.
WGSA is not transmitting due to a problem with the microwave linkup.
Their engineers are working it.
No further details were provided.

Thanks ffoos! I was wondering if why I could not get WGSA anymore. Started adjusting my antenna thinking the problem was on my end. I wonder if their cable offering is also down for maintenance.

Got that email yesterday. Hopefully, they'll get it fixed soon.

have basic limited with no boxes and up until today got up to chan. 70 over qam. As of today it looks like comcast has removed everything past basic limited (2 to 16 or so remaining over qam). i guess its time to force boxes on us (no thanks, that's why my bill is 13 bucks a month, plan on keeping it that way..)

anyway, just a heads up of how things are on wilmington isl..

Question for you guys: am staying at Fripp island over the weekend. What can I pick up either qam or OTA (with a SMALL) antenna. The homeowner we are renting from only has a digital box, no HD. Any help is much appreciated. Mainly interested in CBS for the final 4.

Yes both, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy are in HD now.

I wish the Savannah Stations would start setting their Subchannels in HD.

Augusta's WAGT's 26.2 The CW is now in full HD, tv shows and commercials are in Hi Def. Baxley's WGSA has 3 Sub Channels and they show the same national Feed of the CW's secondary station, but only in SD.
