I am disappointed that it won't be added to my area either, I would've like to see the playoffs even though the Giants are out of the running.
Thanks, I didn't think it was really going to amount to anything anyway. I'm realistically not expecting anything to happen up here till next year 1Q/2Q, if that soon.
I'm getting TBS-HD from DirecTV so I'm covered for the BB playoffs. The annoying thing is, DirecTV has been yakking about 100 HD channels for 2 years and they're finally coming online, so it's not like Comcast didn't know they were going to face some stiff competition for that high dollar HD enthusiast account. DirecTV has a yard up here that has at least 20 trucks or better and everyday every single one of them is out on the road, plus they use sub-contractors in unmarked vans as well. I don't know how large an area they cover, but there's sure a lot of sat dishes being installed lately given an average of 4-5 installs per truck per day.
If Comcast wants more than the $20 a month they currently get from me, they know what they have to do.
Oh yeah, Comcast doesn't even allow me to watch "America's favorite serial killer" either, Dexter, starting Sunday night.
