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.
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.
