can you post this new lineup, I would like to see it, I live in midtown, and Pooler, west Chatham, Hinesville already got it except us, Comcast's website doesn't show it yet. If not here could you post it in AVSforums Savannah or Comcast thread. Thanks
Still NEED FSC in HD in California. This is crazy, NFL, MLB and NHL all in HD, the last one is FSC. Where are you HD??? The SD channel is a joke, I actually bring up the menu, so on my 55" the picture is at least watchable in the small screen in the corner, LOL. Comcast fail....
"Comcast subscribers inside the city of Philadelphia! Starting "on or around" April 12, those with the $6.95 per month Sports Entertainment Package will see Fox Soccer Channel HD added to their cable lineup on channel 1512 (and GOL TV HD on channel 1513)"
"it's a good step forward for Fox Sports executives, who to this point had only managed to get Comcast to supply subscribers in Albuquerque, New Mexico with a high definition feed"
Google also finds this topic, if searched for "fox soccer channel in hd".
Wouldn't it be a mire judicious and practical use of bandwidth for comcast to not broadcast channels in both SD and HD? One would think that they could supply set top boxes which could downconvert to SD for customers who don't have HD capable equipment.
I registered just to add another vote/appeal for the FSCHD, FSC+HD, and GOLHD for the MD/DC market. It does look like Philly is getting it next week, along with others, so I have some hope that Comcast is finally listening to its customers. Most games on FSC are downconverted HD feeds with the sides chopped(you do miss 25% of what's going on) and GOLTV is just plain grainy. I specifically bought the sports package for these two channels(was hoping to get ESPND too, but guess you have to buy the whole spanish package for that). Maybe Comcast will offer a Soccer package someday(don't watch any of the other sport entertainment package channels). . .

SD channels don't use much bandwidth compared to HD. From my memory in the space one HD channel takes Comcast can fix about 8-10 SD channels.
In my market I think that comcast broadcasts over 100 channels in both SD and HD. I just think it makes more sense to downconvert at the customer level, instead of broadcasting two channels of the same programming.
Our channels only go up to 999 in the MD/DC area, so maybe they'll be slotted in the 900s, if offered. You Philly pholk need to let us know if you actually get these channels Tuesday(in time for the 2nd legs of the UEFA semis).
EPL is heating up and '11 European club cup football is drawing to a close. This season marks another big swing and a miss for Comcast. Thank God I've got 3 different HD versions of the Lifetime channel.
Not to mention some "Live Well" (what the heck is it?), Food Network (it's very important to see every single potato in HD) and two Hallmark channels (anyone watched any movie on Hallmark channel ever?)
