Default 30 New HD channels Comcast

On the back of my bill it said I had a bunch of new HD channels but when i tried to go to one of the new channels it would go to one of the closest channel i already had. So I called Comcast and they sent a signal to my box and 5 minutes later i had all these channels. A buddy had to have Comcast do the same thing so just a heads up you have to do the same.

Tacoma/Seattle area got new HD channels here's the list:

Encore HD
Starz HD kids
Starz HD Comedy
Starz HD Edge
Speed HD
ESPN News HD
WE HD
Style HD
E HD
Bravo HD
Lifetime HD
Travel Channel HD
Fox News HD
Fox Business HD
CNN HD
CNBC HD
TBS HD
FX HD
Cartoon Network HD
Toon Disney HD
Fuse HD
TVone HD
QVC HD
G4 HD
Bio HD
Planet Green HD
AMC HD
Lifetime Movie Network HD
IFC HD
IN Demand PPV Events HD

We got these in the Chicago market a couple weeks ago. Not sure exactly when because I stumbled onto them by accident.

Is this Comcast wide? Here in Boston I get some of those HD channels, but not others.

That would be an improvement over the current list in the Atlanta market. Unfortunately nobody here has any idea when we might see that list. Mostly notable among the missing here is SPEED.

Still waiting but not as patiently as before.

Anyone in the Chicagoland Comcast market get SpeedHD without having the Sports Entertainment package?

AMC HD . . .

What a joke that channel is.

No OAR and most of the movies are not in HD.

Maybe one of these days TCM will have an HD channel. I would love to see that.

EDIT - AMC HD is showing First Blood in OAR - looks the same as my DVD upscaled.

I am practically holding my breath with anticipation. Four premium movies channels is great. Really looking forward to more HBO, and Cinemax, though. I am only 2 houses away from Seattle. I am very surprised I do not seem to be getting these new channels. Though my cable originates further north, the line up has always been very close. New channels have been added the same day as Seattle. The big difference is that instead of the Seattle channel, I get the Shoreline channel. Anyhow, I will hope for the best. It can not be much longer now. Actually I should call them and bug them, as you say. Could work.

Edit: Limited areas only. I will get them soon enough.

I didn't go through the entire list quoted above very carefully. I glanced over it and saw a bunch of the channels I got recently. I too may not have Weather Channel or Travel Channel in HD. I will have to check when I get home.

If by TCM you mean Turner Classic Movies they have had an HD channel for a while. We got it in Wash DC Market several months ago.

Please describe TCM HD. Is it true HD? Is it good? I got fed up with TCM because thier movies have the most dust and scratches of any channel. Cinemax has a few oldies that look way better than anything on TCM.
