I called them. First they said it would be available in my town in September. Then, CSR said "hold on, let me double-check that." Came back and said "it was scheduled for September, but has been delayed until 2002."
It is still forward progress. Just to acknowledge HDTV in a Comcast pamphlet is a start.
It's obviously too early for HDTV over cable. When the trees that block my line-of-sight to satellite have all fallen down, and when my OTA antenna can reliably pick up NYC stations, then, and only then, will Comcast make it available over cable. I'd like to think that I'm just a pessimist, but I've seen this movie a few times before.
Here's hoping I'm wrong,
