    D* will never carry History International / HInt / HI in HD. They changed their named to History 2 / H2 on September 26, 2011.

    EXCLUSIVE: New Network Name Becomes History - Additional programming planned as H2 replaces HI

    Channels I personally would like in HD:
    1. Nat Geo Wild HD
    2. IFC HD
    3. H2 HD
    4. ID HD
    5. Cooking HD
    And, if it counts:
    6. WGSR HD (a LP local channel that is not on the AM21 listings. I realize that's a whole different situation... but it's HD. :) )

    I would also like to see HLN, BBC-A, LMN, E!, etc (the "basics") added in HD. Not because I would EVER watch most of them but because I know a lot of people want those channels and it would make them happy and make D* look better since Time Warner Cable carries a lot of "basics" on HD (and E* for some of them, too).

    I feel they should GET RID of the following HD channels since they are often NOT HD: BET, MTV, VH1, CMT, Fuel. Maybe add a -1 for them for the 1 show (exaggeration) on each channel in real HD. What a waste of bandwidth.

    Space limitations may be the reason, as it would be the concern for subscribers to suggest others that they believe should get added in HD before IFC. Especially so if one was to limit himself to just [five] suggestions. In that case, we can find BBC America HD at the top, while battling for the other four slots would be a combinaton of the following: Cooking Channel HD; DIY Network HD; E! Entertainment Television HD; H2 HD; The Hub HD; Nat Geo Wild HD; Turner Classic Movies HD; and any others I should mention as being in the conversation.

    For me it's BBCA and my "local" PBS: KVIE (Sacramento). What drives local channel delivery quality?

    thx,
