Move or delete as necessary, as I'm sure it has been covered, but it was hard to do a search for "95".....

What are these HD channels listed as channel 94, 95 and 98? 98 looked to be some sort of "Upcoming Preview"??? ala the NGC HD thing....the other two seemed to be sports, but didn't list them as HD? Are these future use HD channels, or have these been in use and I just never knew they were there.

Thanks.

I think these are "future" HD, and channels used "part-time". I remember last football season, the Thursday night football game was shown in HD on channel 95, FWIW. :)

They're a mix of HD programing, mostly sports [games] that don't have a "home" [yet] MLB, etc.
