The reported add date for the rest of the HD channels for our market is November 13. But this may be the date that expanding to the 100 HD channel set is to be done for all 3 markets in our VHO: Washington metro, Anne Arundel/Howard County, and Baltimore.
The reason I wonder if we will see HD channels added before then is that Verizon added 24 QAM channels (at channels 29-52) late last week to the Sterling CO. The sub-channels are encrypted, but 23 of the QAM channels have only 2 sub-channels which indicates they are likely HD sub-channels. There are also other QAM channels with 1 or 2 sub-channels that don't match up to the 49 HD channels that are active here. So if other COs in the Washington Metro now have QAM channels in the 29-52 range, we may be getting close to seeing a bunch of new HD channels suddenly show up.
