West coast feeds of TBS TNT and MTV now live on Directv. Comedy Central and BET west feeds still in test mode.
or go full HD. I think it needs to be in the MEPG 2 101 slots to cover the PI quotes. Just like c-span
I agree, especially for us west coasters.One enjoyable thing about having the west coast versions of TBS & TNT is that now their annual "24 hours of a Christmas Story" is actually longer thanks to the west coast broadcasts. I also like how they staggered it this year by having it start at one time on TBS and an hour later on TNT. Yes I've seen it thousands of times, but I'm still a sucker for this every year. I'd love to see more "West" feeds added. The wife loves being able to catch the west coast Big Bang Theory reruns on TBS too.
There are plenty of channels now in HD that nobody cares about.If it is on 101 then it is much less likely to be HD - why would they want to waste valuable 101 bandwidth on a channel few people watch, when they could use it for a more popular channel? I'm willing to bet it stays MPEG4 SD, the only way it goes HD is if it is on 99/103.
