That would be the Versus / Golf HD channel which will have NHL games and PGA golf events (Thursday, Fridays IIRC) in HD. Comcast owns or is a part owner of both the Versus and Golf channels so they started up this HD hybrid of the two channels. There are discussions on this recent start-up channel in the HDTV programming forum.
If I follow this, this would be the first added HD channel to Comcast Loudoun? As opposed to replacing HDNet, HDNetM & INHD2 with 3 other HD channels. But they still have not added Comcast Sportsnet HD?
BTW, Verizon FiosTV in Loudoun yesterday added to the info description for every single channel that is getting moved a notice of the new channel number for that channel effective February 20, 2007. I assume the February 20 dates applies to the Washington Metro line-up while other areas are getting moved on February 27. If the mailer was correct (ignoring the typo they had on sheet for Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia), we should be getting Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic HD on Feb. 20th or soon thereafter. The word is that that other national HD channels will be added to FiosTv this quarter, so we may see them added soon after the channel re-shuffle is done.
