Smithsonian Channel HD? When will it be available?

I just switched to Xfinity from another provider and enjoyed Smithsonian Channel in HD for years.  I made sure to specically ask for Smithsonian when I ordered service.  I'm in the Chicagoland area and discovered it's only in SD.  This is unacceptable in 2019 not to have it in HD.  When will it be avialble?  That's the channel I watch most than all the others.

You're lucky to get it in SD. Where I live, Comcast doesn't offer it, even in SD, and I have the HBO-level package.

This is truly unacceptable. If you’re going to offer a channel, it surely must be in high definition if you’re making your customer pay for your service. I’m incredibly disappointed in Comcast.

I agree.  Why isn't Smithsonian in HD especially since it's educational?  I had it in HD on T-mobile.  Instead, there are dozens of channels that I don't care for in HD.

Weird that you don't get it.  Been watching Smithsonian Channel in HD for years here in the Atlanta area.

I still have the Smithsonian Channels (SD & HD) in my service area (Twin Cities MN).

 

If you do not have it just type in "Smithsonian" in the search field of "You Yube" on a smart tv with "You Tube" app, or other other IPV type of boxes for Internet streaming. Most recent, or old, eppisodes can be found there.

Many Smithsonian shows are also available in HD OnDemand. I record shows, but usually wait a day to watch them OnDemand, if they show up.

I am searching my OnDemand for Smithsonian Channel and I cannot find it. In Charleston, SC with the preferred package.
