TNT-HD on Comcast! - Page 8  

post #211 of 358
Any idea about the Denver area fellow Denverites? I'd like to watch the Nuggets away games before we get knocked out of the playoffs :(

It appears to be unencrypted for the moment here in Jax on channel 166 (RF channel 111-1 or 111-2).

not the situation in LA Area - they immediately started to scramble it. What a bunch of cheap skates. On the other hand they (I guess by mistake) had some porn channel unscrambled for about 30-45 min this morning before they figured it out. It is just hit and miss

Now that I've noticed most of the things labled HD on TitanTV TNTHD seem to be some sort of strangely wide upconverts I'm not sure I care anymore. I recorded a couple movies and then deleted them again.

Just completed my transition from D* to Comcast today and I have TNT-HD on 204 and I am in Pembroke Pines in South Broward county. Nice.

Comcast just gave the dallas area TNT-HD but its a big time tease... The rockets vs mavricks games are picked up by UPN (no HD) so they don't show them on TNT in our area like they do for the rest of the nation. So I have every other playoff game in HD except for the series I care about.

But I still feel your pain.

No love in the SF-Bay area even on the systems that have available bandwidth :(

As far as I know, when TNT renegotiated their NBA deal, and NBC lost their rights to ABC, it was pretty clear that there would be NO blackouts of nationally covered games. They USED to blackout games prior to the new deal.

Are you getting a "this game has been blacked out" message of some sort?
post #221 of 358
Does anyone have a clue when it will be added to Northern NJ? I would like to see some HD playoff games. ESPN has been pretty good, ABC should start should. But TNT are showing some good games. Does anyone know?
post #222 of 358
i'm waiting for this channel as well....
i need it now comcast!
post #223 of 358
Tell me about it! Watching the games on TNT in SD is just "criminal" :(
Especially when our systems have the bandwidth to add TNT-HD.

This morning, I noticed that comcast seem to be simulcasting about 11 analog channels in SD. Does that mean they are going to remove does 11 analog channels to make room for more HD channels? Maybe TNT before the playoffs is over?
post #225 of 358
No. Actually, I just got the word for the Philly and South Jersey markets that TNT-HD will be on Comcast systems in those areas "soon". I do not know how soon "soon" is however. Should I get a firm date, I will pass it along. It may be on on some systems by the end of the week!
post #226 of 358
I agree....no! They could care less about the playoffs. We'll have it out here in Seattle just in time for SD Matlock re-runs or whatever the hell else is on that station. Just why pissed off take on this bs.

Quite the contrary, the playoffs was the impetus that caused them to cut this deal in time to add it in those systems that had the room, which is a majority of the systems.

Your situation is obviously different and if they had the room to add it now, you would already have it.

I respect your emotional responses to this issue due to your situation. Presuming the company is indifferent or doesn't care is simply not accurate.

How are they getting the bandwidth
post #229 of 358
Do you really care? As long as they aren't bleeding it from other HD channels I'm not too concerned.

Thanks JWhip. You do too much for us. :)

Yeah thats the concern
post #231 of 358
No compression or bleeding. They are freeing up the bandwidth to add this channel specifically. I know some of the details but not all. Just being cautious as I sometimes post too much here I think.

Seattle has plenty of room. Comcast just dumped Trio and 8 movie channels today. What we don't have is any hint from Comcast as to when they're going to add TNT-HD.

Perhaps this is part of the plan to make room for it...

This is just the latest trimming they've done. They dumped quite a few other movie channels a few months ago, along with a lot of dedicated PPV channels rendered pointless by OnDemand, so I'm sure they have plenty of room already. My big complaint is that they don't tell us what they're planning to do, or when.
post #235 of 358
I have to say I like having TNT-HD, but I hate how they 'stretch' non HD content.... anyone know if they are really going to keep it that way?
post #236 of 358
TNT-HD was added today to the Northern Virginia (Prince William County system) - Comcast - I must say Im impressed, this system is usually one of the very last systems to add anything. Thanks!!:D
post #237 of 358
I hear yah Wareagle.........They just better have this fixed by the Eastern conference finals! Plenty of space and no word.....even CSR's have never even heard of the deal with TNT-HD. Pathetic.
post #238 of 358
CSR's should be required to read these forums.
