I know I asked this before, Why hasn't Cablevision added this channel?It seems every other provider has!

I am waiting for it as well. Hopefully it will be added soon.

Well 6500 people know about it (according to their ratings book)

Well, that's 6,499 more than a lot of the other channels on the system have at any given time.

Make that more HD, with TRUE HD content!! I don't count channels like TBSHD or even CNNHD. I would prefer channels where HD content makes a huge difference for longer periods of time. Personally, watching a news channel in HD doesn't do anything for me, especially if more than half of what they are showing has to be upconverted.

^^Don't worry, I read somewhere that QVCHD will be appearing before the end of the year...Be rest assured that CV will pick that up the first day available

I'm all for more HD channels, but there are still SD channels out there that are good to add such as Fox Business and CMT Great Country.

I'd like to see NASATV, personally. What about getting rid of some of those on demand "info" channels???? They have to be taking up a good amount of bandwidth, no??

Is that different then Great American Country, the channel that was recently added on 181 or CMT on 187? How many Country Music stations are needed?

And we dont have BBC America. I remember complaining years ago about this, its a joke, every TV provider has BBC America except Cablevision.
I have seen BBC America ads posted at the Long island RR stations, pretty funny since no one can watch it. Well actually most ppl here have satellite TV and use Cable for internet and phone, maybe I should go that route too since I am sick of waiting for Fios.

Well I see alot of satellite dishes on roofs that all I can say. The thing I dont like about satellite is if something goes wrong you can be up a creek for awhile not to mention repair charges.
What would really be cool is if they had RFD-TV, heck, Fios dont even have that, RFD is satellite only I think.

What's funny is that if you compare FIOS and CV I think CV comes out quite well: although they each have channels the other doesn't I think CV's lineup is preferable and there are a boatload of issues being reported with FIOS.

I have OOL but not CV (I have DN) and keep getting bombarded with triple-play offers. They are very tempting (even considering the problems reported with the CV DVR) but I won't even CONSIDER switching from DN until CV adds BBCAmerica and RFD-TV (I'd like HDNet and FineLiving/DIY as well but I could live without them). I can understand CV not carrying RFD (it's kind of specialized and not everyone is like wifey who is into horses) but not carrying BBCAmerica is pure idiocy on the part of Dolan.

I HAVE been pleasantly surprised at the HD channels CV has added recently so perhaps there's hope.

It is a 24/7 country music channel that use to be VH1 Country.
