Cincinnati Time Warner Adding New HD Channels

In an attempt to stay competitive (and relevant), TW is adding new HD channels to its lineup on November 19th.

* ABC Family Ch 986

* CNN Ch 991

* Disney Ch 987

* Discovery Ch 984

* ESPNU Ch 992

* Fox News Ch 990

* Hallmark Movie Ch 998

* MTV's Palladia Ch 993

* The Learning Channel Ch 985

* Oxford's WPTO-TV (Channel 14), Ch 924

Time Warner also will add the WPTO-DT multicast stations on Channels 925, 926, 927 and 928. And in December four more channels:

* The Weather Channel

* Animal Planet

* ESPNEWS

* The Science Channel

I was hoping to see FX and Tennis Channel in HD. What about Comedy Central? TW is transitioning to HD much too slowly. I would be curious to see if they are losing market share to satellite in the Cincinnati area. They are really going to be in trouble if AT&T's U-verse comes to town. TW will finally have some real competition...

Dolf, thanks for the post of the new TW HD channels. I'm switching back to DirecTv next year when Tivo makes their DVRs again. Funny that we share the same obsessions... especially tennis. I can't wait for the Tennis channel on HD!
