Maybe it has something to do with them not having the Cubs games anymore?

I'm a 'hooker' and a knitter. I guess that makes me bi-stitchual :). Crap I say

They are getting rid of sports by next year.

It will be a shame as I'll miss those Cubbie games.

Actually, they are getting rid of EVERYTHING (including all local newscasts) that is run on the local WGN, so it will be just like (W)TBS became...another copycat cable channel that's mostly the same reruns that are already on other stations.
Us downstate IL folks (basically anyone OUTSIDE the local WGN viewing area) are NOT happy about this, as it was the only way to get a newscast that actually had news that pertained to IL, that our "local yokels" don't report on - not to mention no more seeing live IL lottery drawings. Luckily for me, I still have another way to watch the "real" WGN...

I was looking over the On Demand Lineup and they have more HD programs with The Discovery Networks slowly beginning to add more HD content.

We likely will not see much if any HD OD content from ABC/ESPN or The Turner Networks until their next deal.

Nice to see some progress though.

Having more OD content is always a plus. I use it often to check out new shows so I don't have to fill my DVR up with things that may not be worth it.

We have some ESPN HD but none from Disney or ABC Family.

That sounds great on The CW although we do not have that yet.

Let me know if you find out more about NUVO TV and FUSE officially merging.

Right now though, of everything that is out, all I want is Pivot and am surprised Chiller has yet to go HD.

I thought with the demise of FearNet that Chiller going HD would be the next step. Maybe before the end of the year? I really hope they decide to not can that channel too. That would really suck!

Ditto here in Detroit for the most part. ABC and Disney content is in HD. We have all the Disney tabs mentioned above. No CW on demand, however. Odd given that both the CBS and CW stations are CBS-owned. You'd think...

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

Nayan: Given their original movies (got one from Drew Barrymore's company) and popularity, it's ridiculous that they do not have a HD Channel. Chiller will not respond to requests either.

DrDon: Hopefully more comes to us soon too.

ShopHQHD is 16.9. SD.

Kind of sad and Mom tells me she never watches it anyway.

I don't watch shopping channels but if it's supposed to be in HD and it's not, then that is sad.

It's almost notice time and I am not optimistic that anything worthwhile will be on them. Although we could be surprised .

The notice was in today's Paper.

It had NOTHING except MTM's.

However, Gol TV and Jewelry TV were not on them so it is possible a deal has been made.

We will see if it is on the other ones or the TWC notices.

The only channels on them now are

NHL Network/NHL Center Ice
Outdoor Channel
Youtoo
Zap2it (Channel guide for people without a box)

My guess is NHL Network/Center Ice will be done soon and maybe youtoo as it has been on their quite a bit.

I do wonder what happens if there is nothing on MTM's and no channel changes, rebranding or new additions for the month. Will their even be a notice?

Anyway, I'm not sweating it as Pivot is the only thing that I want that is available and that seems unlikely.

HDOrlando no it is broadcasting in HD 1920x1080i according to my DCX3510m's diagnostics menu not to mention the output light on the front of the box jumps to 1080i when tuned to ShopHQ HD.

Not sure what it is but it looks bad.

Have you found anything about a deal for GOL TV or Jewelry TV getting done?
