I just talked to my local Comcast office (Western Oakland County in Southeast Michigan) they said there is a big Comcast push to install HD due to pressure of TV Mfgrs selling HDTV for Christmas to install HD by Thanksgiving THIS YEAR. That's less than 3 weeks. I was totally floored. I didn't know the Detroit area got any respect. (Actually Detroit doesn't as he said the city was not included in the aggressive timetable). We just got Cable internet access a couple of months ago. We'll see if it really happens. He said the push is so new they have absolutely no firm information about offerings or pricing, but said rumor is that there will be no monthly fee but a $49.95 hookup fee. He knew nothing about equipment. Keeping my fingers crossed.
