Available in Baltimore under HD On Demand/News & World. HD On Demand content from a channel has sometimes preceded the addition of that channel (National Geographic, for example)...

All I can say is that I can't give specific channels as none of the contracts are "quite" done yet. But I can say that a great number of Comcast customers very close to years end will be very very happy with their HD selection choices both On Demand HD choices and linear 24x7 HD choices. Many many markets will soon get notices of a few analog channels moving to digital. Also once many of these HD channels are added many Series 3 HD Tivo users are going to be ticked off though.

My posts in the DirecTV forum about the upfront cost of HD DVRs coupled with the fact I don't want to beat myself up if Comcast adds tons of HD channels in six months isn't just for the heck of it. Now some Comcast markets will be late on those additions but nearly all major markets will see a very nice HD lineup later this year. New England will sure be the happiest as they will see these HD channels the earliest.

There was a CSPAN special on history of the capital on-demand that was HD

That was a great special

Saw History HD On Demand on the menu last night....

We've had A&E HD (linear channel and On Demand) since March in this market.

Yea I am in Philly and we got the A&E OnDemand but not the channel yet. I guess that means it's coming soon. I am anxious to get NGHD I know some markets have the channel but we just have the OnDemand right now. :hungry:

We don't have NGEO-HD, AE-HD, Food-HD, or HGTV-HD. Just the ondemand for the first two, and even that it's not that much.

ditto that in Philly we do have VS/Golf though. Maybe we'll get something new on 7/10. Where do people find out what they're getting and when?

Well for my area I think it's a mandate for customers to be notified one DAY before they add or subtract channels. Our state makes Comcast put notices in the main section of the newspapers, and Comcast sends out those messages like always.

I was hopeful for the last few weeks because we've been getting LOTS of messages, but NONE were related to channel changes-just free previews and PPV stuff :mad:

I get messages on my cable box. The last one was on 5/25, about 45 days before the new channels are to be added.
