I personally prefer TNT-HD over Bravo-HD. In fact, I am yet to watch one show in Bravo-HD


How do other people compare the two ?


I am really curious to see what other people so I would appreciate if you take the time to answer the question.


By the way, I think I understand why D* decided to add BravoHD but that's another story.

Deffinetly TNT-HD, BravoHD+ is just a looping Demo channel and needs to be re-programmed.


TNT-HD has a whole range of movies, events and series. Especially all the Basketball games that will be coming up. More and more movies are being shown in HD also Without a Trace and some L&O shows are starting to be shown in HD. Also The Grid was an amazing series, which so happens to be re-running today.

I've never seen TNT-HD, but the SD version seems to be little more than reruns and sports. Hopefully DirecTV won't spend bandwidth on that until they have already offered most other HD channels.


Bravo-HD is also nothing to write home about in its current incarnation. But wasn't it supposed to morph into an NBC networks combo channel with programming from USA, Bravo, & Sci-Fi? If that happens it could go from irrelevant to one of the best HD channels available.


My pick is Bravo-HD on the hope that it will become great.

I've yet to watch any program on Bravo HD. I am not interested in any of the handful of programs that they loop each day or the Olympics from 2 years ago. At least with TNT we have the NBA

I believe D* had to carry BravoHD as part of the agreement to add NBC HD.

Sob...I don't get either with Comcast so I can't vote. I would probably watch BravoHD occasionally and TNT not at all except for the NBA. But I know that I am atypical as I don't watch commercial TV except for sports.

If you would watch Bravo HD+ occasionally, then you definitely are atypical. :)

Bravo-HD has more programming I prefer than TNT-HD. I am not a NASCAR fan, my fiancee' will not let me watch basketball, and I have no interest in watching movies with commercials so TNT-HD is out. I hate that Bravo-HD shows the same thing over and over again but, that will change really soon.

for D* subs i think the question will soon be moot. i'm guessing(could be wrong) that D*adds TNT-HD when the NBA season gets going. it would follow what they've done all year.

They will add the missing nationals (BravoHD+,TNT-HD, HDNET/Movies) when they feel they can absorb the costs and bandwidth requirements. Since Comcast doesn't have a separately priced HD tier (only $5 for the HD STB and another $5 for the DVR if you want it) they can't just add a few channels and hike HD tier costs by a buck or two to pay for it. Plus, they have many old systems that are bandwidth-challenged right now, so if they added another national channel those folks will start/continue screaming. Plus they are trying to establish VOD and dual-tuner DVRs to better compete with satellite.


It took a year and a half to add DiscoveryHD. While there are many "in-the-know" folks on this forum about Comcast, no new rumors have been circulated in the past few months. Sometimes someone says to be optimistic, but that's all.


Before DiscoveryHD was added, there were swirls of rumors alive for months. Nothing like that now. So I would thiink that optimism is fine for the long-term but not for the next few months.


What is great is that D* is launching more satellites to support HD. When it can show local HD and gets all the available national HD channels (will INHD1&2 stay only on cable?) then Comcast may feel it is in their self-interest to expand their HD offerings. A year from now I probably won't watch anything in SD except Jeopardy.

Warning sign? Time for a new fiancee. If as your fiancee she won't let you watch basketball, imagine what you won't be able to do once she is your wife. Run for your life, dude.
