I'd like to have CNN International back. I gather from this old thread that it was dropped in 2004. I'd like to watch Richard Quest's and Christiane Amanpour's shows, for instance. It is carried on some cable systems.

Turner used CNN International as overnight filler when CNNfn was off air. When CNNfn shutdown Turner gave providers the option to carry CNN International 24/7, but most providers opted to drop it entirely.

As for CNN International HD, the North American feed isn't available in HD yet.

But coming in May, apparently.

CNN International is being upgraded to HD now and shows originated on CNNI will be available in HD in May.

I'll just be glad when HLN finally lights up in HD this week. I had CNNI when I had cable years ago and didn't watch it much. The only time I'm glad to see it is if I'm out of the country and its the only link to getting any information about the US.

That's a good one!

In tune with the point of this thread . . .

If I was to guess "Up to 20," though I'm not seriously figuring as much in 2013, perhaps TV One HD would make the cut.

I'm still at a loss why there isn't a full time HD Fox Sports Ohio channel that carries the Reds, Blue Jackets, and Cavaliers.

Same here for Cincinnati. At least we don't have to suffer through SD Reds games anymore.

The other ones in test are expected within the week. After that ... "more HD is coming". When has not been stated but some in the third quarter has been mentioned. Hopefully there will be some additions between "within a week" and "third quarter". This thread is more fun when people are happy. :)

Haven't you heard, G4 is being retooled again, http://www.tv.com/ne...d-x-play-29932/ . How about bring back Tech TV?

See post My Setup for configuration info.

I know there are some Western feeds aren't in HD, so if some of those were added would be great.

Even better.:sure:

Take that back, after reading that article. The old Tech TV was better, for sure.

I expect Universal Sports HD before Pac-12 Network HD, and I have little hope for IndiPlex or RetroPlex in 2013 or 2014,
