They have not added anything here in 19 months and I am getting frustrated with them.
We no longer have anything on channel 40, G4 was moved to the digital family tier, they switched WE to the digital family tier with Lifetime Movie Channel, and last month we did get a new channel Fox Business Channel it is in the digital family tier. With channel 40 open I donn't know why they didn't just move The Weather Channel there and put the Fox Business Channel on 39 next to Fox News.
After the last addition in Feb. 2008 other areas got 4 more HD channels June through August then 3 more around November and then around June 2 more were added.
That first group was:
USA, SciFi (now SYFY), FX, and Travel (Chiller non HD was added)
The second group was:
Discovery, TLC, and Animal Planet
The third group was:
Bravo, and CNBC
Other areas have Universal HD as well.
We do not have our CW in HD either, I would like to finally see Smallville in HD since they moved it to Friday its probably the last season.
I probably would have been happy if they had just given us the first group as I watch USA a lot and SyFy probably the most.
Nothing being added in 19 months is rediculous. I would switch but a dish is really possible where I live. I have family in DC and they have Verizon, outside of regional sports and locals they have 69 non premium HD channels and 43 premium. I wish we had them here I would switch in a minute.
I have called multiple times over the past year and I always get the same answer well there isn't enough space and were are working to make more room. Thats a fine answer for 6 months to a year but 19 months that doesn't seam like your doing anything. They seem to advertise enough about how great suddenlink is, but in those past 19 months they have added 1 channel moved 1 channel to a digital tier from expanded basic and switched a channel on expanded basic with one from the digital tier.
My cable bill with the same services has gone from 82.56 to 93.45 in that time, $1.49 is the broadcast station surcharge which we still don't have CW in HD and the rest has gone up $9.40.
So for $10.89 (13.2% increase) more the only thing more that I am getting is The Fox Business Channel.
