    I've got HD through Time Warner and just noticed a new channel -- INHD. Right now, it's just running a preview loop saying programming will start airing Sept 15th.

    Is this a new HD network or is this something other cable or satellite HD systems have had?

    If anyone has had this channel in their lineup, what's the programming like? From the previews, it's hard to tell.. they make it look like they'll have everything from movies to sports.

    Bryan this is a new network coming online in September,
    it is a subsidary of INDemand which is owned by Comcast,Cox, & AOL Time Warner. There will actually be 2 channels INHD1 & INHD2 respectively. They are only available through cable sorry satellite guys. More though limited info can be found at www.inhd.com So far they've got contracts with content providers including College Sports TV and many other providers to provide 2 channels of 24 hour a day HD feed's.

    I'm glad to hear they will be offering professional sports. I checked out their website, it is quite light on specifics.

    I live in Chicago and yesterday they were showing the U.S. Open on this channel. It was a great picture. Is this going to be a ppv channel or a monthly pay channel?

    I have to agree, the U.S. Open looked great the past couple nights in HD. [​IMG]

    Tonight they scheduled the 1953 movie "House of Wax". I suspect the U.S. Open broadcast will run long and poor Vincent Price will be bumped. [​IMG]

    Omard,

    Where I'm at, the only HD channels TW carries right now are NBC, Fox (I know, really Extended Definition), Discovery HD, and INHD. Supposedly they are negotiating with ABC, CBS, and ESPN HD. I'm hoping those come on before the NFL season is over.

    Bryan ABC and ESPN are both owned by disney so when they negotiate for one they get both. Thats how it was here anyways.

    JeremyFr. Live in Bothell, WA. Do you know if these new channels will be launcing on the 15th of this month? You stated a few weeks so I'm guessing not. Any info on your end as to when other new HDTV channels might be coming our way in the Seattle area?

    I haven't got a verified date unfortunately as they keep stuff like this hush hush untill it seems the day they release it. I've asked around and to me it seems logical to asume the 15th though the only info I've got so far is confirmation that they will drop rougly 4 PPV feeds to accomadate these channels from iNDemand here about mid month. I'll let you know when I get more info.
