Didn't have time to check on my way out the door this morning, but hopefully they'll be there tonight.

Channels were there last night however the Guide listings were all TBA and there was no name on the channel label.

There were also two additional SD feeds from the local CBS affiliate showing simultaneous NCAA playoff games.

That's actually pretty cool.  Our local CBS is offering free games on demand via CBSSportsline.com.  I didn't even think to check if they were feeding them on TV via cable.

Our local CBS here doesn't have any subchannels.  Did you have subchannels prior to yesterday when the games showed up?

Nope, they just showed up yesterday.  Previously there were no sub-channels from them.


Edit*

Yep, they are multicasting for March Madness.  Just looked it up on their website.  Three extra channels, not the aforementioned two.

Ahhh the bliss of 4 new HD channels in one shot.  Keep it up Comcast.  Keep adding HD channels and you'll continue to keep me as a customer.

Re: New HD channels in northern 'burbs of Atlanta

Yea I must say... I griped a few months ago when they took away the West feeds of the HBO and Encore channels, but this kinda makes good for that in my mind (besides, like many said the time-shifting of the DVR makes them moot).

We now have available:

WSB-DT (ABC)
WAGA-DT (FOX)
WXIA-DT (NBC)
WTBS-DT (TBS Superstation)
WGCL-DT (CBS)
WUPA-DT (CW)
WATL-DT (MyNetwork TV)
A&E HD
National Geographic HD
TNT HD
Discovery HD Theater
ESPN HD
ESPN2 HD
Golf/VS HD
Music HD (MTV HD)
Universal HD
INHD (soon to be re-branded MOJO)

Premiums:
HBO HD
Cinemax HD
Starz HD
Showtime HD

Re: New HD channels in northern 'burbs of Atlanta

So that makes 12 new HD channels added this year, I'm not counting TBS HD since we already had WTBS HD until the rename to WPCH and programming spin-off from TBS.

Not too bad Comcast... here's the rest of my Xmas wishlist from you:

Tivo software (want to try it out)
Expanded storage
Multi-Room Viewing capability so I can only have one DVR
Lower bill
SciFi-HD

Make it 13 since I found SciFi HD last night (I guess Comcast got the low hanging fruit on my wish list).

Re: New HD channels in northern 'burbs of Atlanta

5 new ones added over the last week or so:

TLC HD
AMC HD
ABC Family HD
Disney HD
Science HD

WPCH HD (Local, used to be WTBS-HD before the split with the national TBS) has been showing up on what appears to be a part-time (evenings and weekends) basis.  Listed as Off Air most of the time.

Re: New HD channels in northern 'burbs of Atlanta

I read somewhere that Science HD is the 'triple' with Disney and ABCFam. Can you verify if they are all the same frequency? We got Disney and ABCFam a few weeks ago, but still no Science.


Sony KV-30XBR910, Sony STR-DB930, Sony DVP-NS55P, JVC HR-S3800U, Motorola DCT-6412, Sony KV-13FS100, OneForAll URC-8910.

In the Atlanta area, Science came at the same time as the other two.

Mine is listed on my Tivo as "Braves Only".  I'm assuming that it's only on when the Braves are playing, but I might be wrong.

Disney, ABCFam, and Science came in a "3-pack" for Seattle.  Comcast seems to be providing the same packing everywhere, so I would imagine Atlanta has them the same way.   When you get Science, it will undoubtedly be added to the pack.
