Not sure if anything else is coming... but I can also tell you that CMTHD, SpikeHD, and Comedy Central HD seem to be live for AbsoluteHD customers.

Not sure if that's accident or intentional or if we'll get the rest or have to upgrade to get the others.

Yes I can confirm that CMT, Spike and Comedy Central(HD channels) are working for me with HD Absolute. Nick, VH1 and MTV are in red, oh well can't have everything. If I had a choice I would have picked the first three anyway.

I'm just thrilled to get any new HD channels with this package. :D

Mostly agree with you there. Only difference, I'd probably take Nick over CMT sometimes... but maybe a few more channels and it'll be worth folks upgrading to the TurboHD packages from Absolute.

Meanwhile, very nice to not only see new HD today, but also new HD added to the AbsoluteHD folks!

I'm going to try and catch the repeat of last night's South Park on Comedy Central at 9:30pm and see how that looks in HD.

WTF did I get a Turbo package for then if I don't get new HD channels? I think U-verse is getting a new customer!

Thanks for the welcome.

Where is BET-HD? It was indeed technical issues?

Damn why so rude? Can't make a comment?

If I was DIRECTV I would be worried of Dish getting more HD. A lot of people shopping for service go to DIRECTV because of the HD lineup and now with Dish getting more they might look into Dish. :)
