    When I go to their website they don't say which channels they offer. It just has some general description of how great HD is and some samples of channels they have. I already use comcast for my internet and cable, and I have 2 replay tvs and a tv tuner on my computer so it would be easier for me to use them than satellite. How can I find out what channels they have?

    Here in suburban Philadelphia, these are the HD channels: Comcast Sportsnet, ESPN,ESPN2,INHD,INHD2,TNT,Discovery,Universal HD (US Open tennis), MHD, ABC, NBC, CBS, HBO, CMAX,Show,Starz,Fox, 2PBS,TheCW

    Just call your local Comcast Office and they will tell you which channels are available in your neighborhood, and they will send you a line-up card if you ask for it [​IMG]

    What HD channels are available depends on where you are. In my area we get ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, ESPN & ESPN2, INHD1, INHD2, UHD and Discovery-HD in the basic and classic digital packages. Beginning Sept. 1 they will be adding 2 or 3 more HD channels to basic digital package.

    There quite a few more HD channels available in the premium packages.

    In Chicago we are very limited. In fact they just took away inhd2 and replaced it with MOJO. The movies on INHD are always pan and scan if they were originally 2/35:1. Very frustrating!!!!!
    i wish I knew Chicago has such a poor selection!

    Actually, it's pretty easy to find out. Go to the TitanTV web site and enter the specifics: cable provider, digital and go to the grid. Titan can be configured to annotate whether a channel is HD.

    YMMV

    In this area, INHD2 was replaced by a MTV HD channel. I would much rather have INHD2.
