    That is Comcast and it was added last week. It's not a Fox Sports Network!

    Way to go, DirecTV! Pretty obvious around these parts that the only customers Mediacom is going to have left are blue hairs who don't have a clue what HD is, everyone else is going to bolt, has bolted, or will soon bolt to satellite for BTN and HD.

    I still think there's 1 more HD RSN this morning than there was last night. I'm at work now, so I can't look but the 600 HD listings looked longer this morning.

    Again, maybe I'm just nuts. :grin:

    There's alot of RSNs to come which will pad the number.

    The only thing to mess up the final number of HD channels by the end of October is if the stations aren't ready to launch yet. Like Speed, which got pushed back to February, 2008.

    They should be close to 70 by 10/31 and 100 by 12/31.

    You're crazy. :)

    640 came on last week. I'm not seeing any new HD RSNs.

    They are doing such a great job of that: E* star that is...

    They added 8 channels two days ago.... to their count...
    By now counting PPV in their HD criteria.

    They are looking equal alright...

    I for one am thrilled that I finally have enough HD channels to watch that I can pretty much find something I like in HD all day long. I would REALLY like to see Fox Sports Detroit on one of these next rollouts. I know it says it was scheduled for this month and hopefully that is still true. They aren't putting the HD feed up in the 90's unfortunatley. For somereason I keep getting the baseball games that are already on TBS there though. I will live watching the SD Wings games, but hope to get the HD broadcast really soon. :)

    As a movie lover I am THRILLED with MGM-HD.

    Loads of classic, vintage movies from the '30s through the '90s -- I can only sample the Michael Caine flick BILLION DOLLAR BRAIN so far but the roster of movies coming up in the next few days is really exciting.

    For me I'd just as soon see a channel that's more like TCM in HD than any of the "modern" channels that show SHREK 24/7, so I'm really excited by this addition! :)

    They've been testing NGCHD for so long now, I almost forgot I didn't already have it!

    Ditto here, but since E* doesn't have HGTV-HD yet (at least I don't think so), and She Who Must Be Obeyed is not quite frustrated enough to get me to look over there, I'm safe -- for now.

    It looks like the '101' is in HD today. It shows up as 720p. So, maybe they launched 5 today instead of 4 and that is the reason for 27 to 32?

    Here is an old link discussing the "scheduled" release of the RSN's. Obviously "Chart A" on this didn't turn out to be correct but "Chart B" was. Hopefully "Chart's C & D" are correct because if so there will be quite a few RSN's added on the 17th.
