Unfortunately, we do not have Boomerang here.

However, when the Turner deal which is up really soon according to TWC notices, expires, I think they will push for Boomerang to be on all systems this time.

The reasons being are they plan to sell advertising for the channel and they are going to have original programming.

The later could also mean them going HD as well.

It is so frustrating when I record Chiller movies in SD but am hoping that will change really soon.

If Teen Nick is indeed in HD, it should be an easy add since the contract was recently renewed. Then again, Discovery Life HD is supposedly available and we have not gotten that yet.

Maybe they are waiting for the merger to be approved before adding anything. Charter does have AXS.TV and HDNet Movies so if goes through you guys will probably get those .

We have them both

Nayan: They might be although they have added some channels this year.

dotsdavid: Nice! Do envy you a bit for having more than the On Demand version of Boomerang.

In one week, we should find out if we are getting Chiller HD.

It would also be nice if the date The Turner Networks are expiring is revealed. Once this gets done, Boomerang becomes a possibility.

The fact that we have about a page per month shows how we have gotten into that time I mentioned for years when there was not going to be much to add.

I think it's like that now for most providers. All of us already have the big stuff, now it's just the little niche channels that get added.

Hardly; the BIGGEST cable co (Comcast) is probably one of the MOST behind when it comes to it's (skimpy) HD lineups across the majority of it's systems!
But I guess when you're spoiled (as a BHN sub) you probably don't notice this...
(yes, I know you're now on DTV, but IMHO they still have a ways to go themselves...)

True .

But I have noticed, at least for myself, that more isn't necessarily better. Out of all the channels available, even when I was a BHN junkie, on my fave list was only a handful of channels that I watched regularly and the rest ignored. Same with DTV, only now I have AXS.TV, HDNet Movies and Pivot added to the list. Still a small list though .

Are you saying that we might see the return of HDNet on BHN? I've sorely missed HDNet since its removal from the BHN lineup many years ago.

When in doubt, do the right thing.

Nayan: It's still nice in SD. All we have is a limited selection of Boomerang On Demand.

sgooter: It's definitely possible that happens if the merger goes through although it's not a given.

Maybe, depends on the merger but I really hope you guys get it back. I too missed having it and HDNet Movies.

We should know on Thursday when Michigan gets their notice.

I expect the rest of us to get theirs on Friday.

Chiller HD would be wonderful although NBCSN on MTM's might derail that possibility. Discovery Life HD and Daystar could also be in play but the only one I want is Chiller HD.

And TeenNick HD could even be in play.............

Was this perhaps a subliminal desire to achieve more vibrant HD?
