Has anyone any kind of "insider" information on Adelphia's HD plans? Specifically, what kind of timetable have they implied or announced concerning adding HD content? Is TNT HD imminent? espn2HD? FOXHD?
Hopefully the TW/Comcast acquisition will hasten things. I think most of their network is already 750 mhz so depending on how much rewire is required I would imagine Adelphia would come in line with TW relatively quickly.
In northern VA, Adelphia has a pretty full HD line-up with all the locals (except UPN and WB) and HDnet, HDmovies, ESPNHD, IND1 and IND2. Anxiously waiting on the Discovery Channel. Anyone got that one yet? I hear that ESPN2 HD will be added soon as well.
Here in Pittsburgh (Monroeville) on Adelphia my High-Def line-up is: HDNFL, HDDT, INHD, INHD2, ESPNHD, HDMVS, HDNET, MAXHD, STARZHD, SHOWHD, HBOHD, NBCHD, CBSHD, PBSHD and ABCHD. It's a pretty good line-up, but with Adelphia's problem acquring FOXHD from Sinclair. I'm w/o FOXHD for the forseeable future. Just add FOXHD, ESPN2HD and TNTHD, and I'll be happy.
In Cleveland, we have the HD versions of all the "big 4" networks (ABC/CBS/NBC/FOX), the local CBS affiliate being added in the past couple of weeks. It's the same agreement that got Adelphia folks in the Cincinnati area their local FOX affiliate (same owner), so we can thank the Super Bowl for it, I guess. The local UPN affiliate (same owner as CBS) isn't up yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if the way's clear for that, too. The WB affiliate locally isn't doing even digital SD right now due to channel issues with Canada.
Oh, they recently added the PBS HD feed via WVIZ-DT.
We also have: ESPNHD, HDNet, HDMovies, InHD1/2, DiscoveryHD, NFL Network HD and the HD versions of all the movie channels. ESPN2HD is reportedly due up in a couple of weeks. No idea about TNTHD or Universal HD.
I'm in Munhall...still no ESPN2HD here either. Do you know if we are on a different system from the people in Monroeville? My dad, in Monroeville, had NFL HD, Discovery HD, and PBS HD for about 2 weeks before I got it in Munhall. I think we have a pretty decent HD lineup...if we could pick up ESPN2HD, and especially FOXHD I would be thrilled.
I'm in South hills area - usc, no espn2hd here yet. On channel 703 it says "test". It's been this way for about 2 months - I'm hoping maybe foxhd or espn2hd is coming! Anyone else in pgh have this "test" channel?
