Well as much as I'd like to see that happen, we got the standard def Planet Green channel at launch and it wasn't until last month that NYC got the HD version (the rest of us get it soon). Both Planet Green and BBCAmerica are distributed by Discovery, so I don't see CV making a major shift on the status quo here.
Although I will admit Planet Green was technically a rebranding of Discovery Home, which we'd had for some time.
Anybody know when the "rest of us "will be getting the rest of the HD's?? The PR release said "b y june" well we are fast approaching the end of june...i guess i am being just a little jaded...voom and cvc will do that to you.
