I'll take the 15 HBO's, but I'm in no rush for them and I'm a Silver customer. I could wait till the end when all the cable network HD's are added such as USA, Sci-Fi, History, etc. btw, read that the other 5 channels are New York, NY - Cablevision - Page 142 - AVS Forum

TLC HD
Science Channel HD
Spike HD
Speed HD
IFC HD

make sense they would carry all the Discovery HD channels
now I can start watching ifc again (sd window boxed really blew)

cool....the one channel I wanted was Discovery, so everything else was icing on the cake. My list of 5 that I wanted included Science and TLC, so 2 out of 5 ain't bad. I wish one was History......that's now at the top of my list, but I am happy with what we are getting.

They are in a no win situation. No matter what channels they add there will always be someone unhappy wanting other channels. That is why they usually try to add a variety of channels to make people of varying interest happy.

But with their 500 HD channel capacity Fiber Optic system they should be able to add them all right?

Rutledge really put his foot in his mouth with that statement 10 months ago.

I don't want ANY new HD channels until they fix the quality of the bit-rate starved ones they currently have.

SD Hallmark Movie Channel

No surprises here since they already announced the HD channel.


CT legal filing
http://www.dpuc.state.ct.us/DPUCUnd...85256a63004def968525748600545bfa?OpenDocument

"Effective Tuesday, July 29, 2008, Cablevision will launch the Hallmark Movie Channel to our iO Package (and above) subscribers on channel 193. The Hallmark Movie Channel is a 24-hour cable network dedicated to bringing viewers the highest quality family movies. Residential customers subscribing to the iO Package and above and commercial customers subscribing to Entertainment iO (and above) will be able to access this channel."



This most likely means that CT customers should expect all the new HD channels on the 29th.

Once cablevision adds teh 15 HD channels, they will have caught up in sheer numbers. Then they can dump voom and add 15 more.

The reverse way to say that is why keep 15 channels no one else seems to want?

There has been a lot of speculation that cablevision would drop VOOM. However the original "drop dead' date has come and gone. Still i would expect more predictions of its demise---just like the superstations.

Is Universal HD a Voom channel? I wouldn't want to lose that. Monsters HD & Kung Fu HD are quite unique.

Again why not add a brand new channel in HD? Where's Boomerang, Fox Business Network, BBC America, NFL Network , Sleuth , FOX Reality , or Wealth TV.

Make more people get HD service & and a digital box. Simple marketing plan. If you want those channels upgrade to a HD digital box.

10 months ago hes been saying that for over 3years on the conference calls. when voom dbs announced that they where going to be a content provider instead of a service provider he was asked about putting them on cablevision, if it would be a bandwidth issue to wich he responded, no we have enough bandwidth to carry every channel every created in hd. yeah well then why do we start getting all these hd channels and why did we have to shut off so many of the analog feeds???

NO SciFiHD @ CV

:(Well, in looking @ the IMDB tv listings they have the new HD channels w/ their 700s numbers but I think that people are confusing SCIENCE HD Channel w/ SCIFI HD (SCIHD not SCIFIHD) & just look @ the program listings itself
