Cooking channel is now live on 232, sadly, not in HD. Looking through the guide out through Wednesday, there's no sign of a change, however, The Galloping Gormet will be doing Eels on Toast on Wednesday at 2:30. Don't miss it!


You shouldn't be disappointed, the channel doesn't exist in HD yet anywhere, and nobody said it would be in HD at launch anyway.

I'm not watching The Cooking Channel until it goes HD. I did that with SD channels.

Wouldn't mind seeing cooking channel show some reruns of "Can't cook, Won't Cook" or at least some shows featuring Ainsley Harriott. Ainsley is a fantastic cook and after watching a couple shows this morning, He would definitely bring some life to the channel.

Yes, she was around on the Travel Channel I think several years ago around the time Emeril got started and was the Hottest Food Chick around at that time and then she disappeared from view.

She was around way before Rachel Ray or Giada but Giada is Hot, Sexy and Cute while still having a Great Sense of Humor!!!

When they introduced color TV did you stop watching shows unless they immediately switched to color? Uh-huh... :D

The promos on the Food Channel for the Cooking Channel have been in HD. That's a hopeful sign.

The press release from October said it will be in HD, never said when though.

That's just a promo. Of course it's HD on FN and Travel Channel. Hopefully The Cooking Channel will be in HD soon for all.

I have no idea if this poster is for real, but on another forum, I found a thread that started to complain about DirecTV being lame in not showing it in HD, then someone claiming to be the GM of Cooking Channel saying it would launch in September, and that DirecTV would carry it at launch.

If this guy's for real, thats got to be the earliest I've seen anything about DirecTV carrying a channel.

He's obviously an impostor. Real GM's don't announce future plans on forums, they put out press releases.
