Basically, if TBS was not carrying the baseball playoffs, then Comcast would not have needed to carry that and CNN-HD. That was my point which I base on the actual amount of HD programming carried. The only reason Comcast started carrying Universal HD was due to the Olympics. My issue with the rush to fill up a channel line up with HD channels is most of these channels are not even broadcasting HD programming 25% of the time. When CNN-HD launched, we talked on this thread about where is the HD programming. Now that playoffs are going to only be on Fox, the same question can be asked TBS-HD. I would prefer more full time HD channels like HDNet and HDNet Movies. But since Comcast has to match Verizon and D* almost channel for channel, we end up with TBS and CNN.
