My wife likes Lifetime Movie Channel. (Side comment, what a waste Lifetime 252 is in up-rezed HD).

IFC, AMC, FMC & TCM would all be good additions.

Also, what happened to channel 135... I thought it was supposed to go live yesterday?

Now if some of those aren't in HD yet, I apologized in advance because I didn't look at the updated list of available HD feeds before I wrote this.

Congratulations, all four exist.

Have you seen them? They remind me a lot of AMC before the commercial interruptions.

Also Epix premieres a lot of new movies that other premiums don't and won't, it looks like.

Yes I have. AMC is just as bad regarding their poor treatment of films, but at least they have proven original series. Epix does not. I guess the upside is that if we did get Epix, it would actually be in 1080i instead of what you folks suffer with. They may offer premiers before other premiums, but not the entire movie...just the parts they didn't cut off.

Though NASA HD is not a full time simulcast of NASA TV, it does exist and is available on Time Warner Cable in some areas (and I would assume FTA).
