I would too, except...there's no such thing as CHILLER-HD.  And TCM-HD still is not showing anything in HD--not even the Osborne intros!


 

There's no Chiller HD yet - one can always hope. Smiley Very Happy

 

Is TCM HD just an upscaled version of their SD channel? I could probably live with that. I just want a full-width image on my 50" plasma without having to use my LG's "zoom" function.

Yes, so far, it's just upscaled.  But many have reported some movies are pillar-boxed (bars on all FOUR sides!) so you might still have to use the zoom.   On the whole, most say the PQ is sometimes an improvement over the SD channel...but there is still no HD.  That is why TCM doesn't even promote the channel on its own web-site.  Obviously, I'd love to have a full-time TCM-HD channel...but right now,  they just aren't ready.  Personally, I hope we get some channels that ARE broadcasting in HD, such as BBC-HD.

All I know is, I don't need any more sports channels, and I'd be more than happy to sacrifice a few for:

A&E's Crime & Investigation HD (already on DirectTV, Dish, AT&T & Time-Warner)
Fox Movie Channel HD (projected for 2010)
History International HD (already on Dish, AT&T, Comcast Time-Warner & Cox)
Investigation Discovery HD (already on AT&T, Comcast Time-Warner & Cox)
ReelzChannel HD (projected for Q3 2010)
Shorts HD (already on Dish & AT&T)
TruTV HD (already on Dish, AT&T, Comcast Time-Warner & Cox)
TCM HD (already on Dish, AT&T, Comcast Time-Warner & Cox)

(info from the comparison chart here - http://is.gd/cCmsn )

While I don't care about OnDemand, I'll second BBCA HD any time!

MASN2HD

 

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE add MASN2HD.  Very nearly all of the Washington area cable providers except a few small local outfits carry this station already.  DirecTV carries it.  Only we FiOS customers will be limited to watching Stephen Strasburg's debut in standard definition (actually, the picture on Channel 1 seems to me to be SUBstandard definition).

 

We just lost four HD stations for some reason.  Give us MASN2HD, and do it before tomorrow evening, PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE!!!

 

Were I not under service contract I would be yanking FiOS TV TODAY and replacing it with Comcast because of this.

 

NASA TV would be nice, too, and I know they give that away.

I cannot believe that you sponsor the MASN2 HD post-game show for the Nationals. Was that a joke? You had better get MASN2 HD or I wlll cancel at my next opportunity. I promise.

Check out @fiostv on Twitter. He said that he has been promised by the bosses that he'll be allowed to share more info about MASN2 HD on Friday 6/11. Also, I really believe that one of the main reasons we're losing those west coast movie channels is so they can add MASN2 HD.

Well, I hope she doesn't take it out on you because, AFAIK, FLN has morphed into the Cooking Channel and it's not coming back.

Hi Kathleen,

 

I've been very happy with all of the HD channels that have been added, most recently AMC.  But I really want to see the Nationals on MASN2 HD. 

 

Thanks.
