    Re: Mediacom adds new HDTV channels

    Is this on their HD package, or just basic cable? Right now I have one of my HDTV hooked up to my HD package through Mediacom, and I have a 22" HDTV hooked up to basic out of hte wall cable that gets 8 and 13 HD channels.

    Generally, I agree.

    But, the Mediacom folks didn't rain on the DirecTV new HD channels and such. Plus - some folks can't get DirecTV/Dish. My heart bleeds for them.

    Re: Mediacom adds new HDTV channels

    I am not a big fan of Mediacom, however, I do have their digital package. I think they are the lessor of the evils. I sure enjoy the digital channels (Yes I wish there were more however I don't watch a lot of tv), and channel 22 reruns on ISU games and more recently the Drake MBB games. They have some nice on demand shows such as Power Shots too. As far as their internet and phone options, I think there are much better options than what Mediacom offers.

    Re: Mediacom adds new HDTV channels

    I would definitely prefer to have Directv but it isn't an option where I live. It is nice having Mediacom connections for the ISU reruns and Drake games but that's about it.
    My HD DVR is buggy and there aren't enough HD channels. Plus it's more expensive.

    Re: Mediacom adds new HDTV channels

    I just noticed those channels myself, FSNHD would be a good addition too.

    I'm aware that Dish and Direct tv have more HD channels than cable, they've had TNT and TBS for awhile I think. My question is this- is there any HD programming on TBS? I know TNT has plenty including NBA, but I scanned several days ahead on TBS and didn't see a single HD program. I'm sure a big reason for that is because TBS has so much syndicated crap from the past few years before HD was big, but I see there is a movie on tomorrow night and it's not HD? What's the point if they don't have the programming?

    Oh, and I flipped to CNNHD to check it out and could clearly see Hillary Clinton's wrinkles...so that was great.

    Re: Mediacom adds new HDTV channels

    While they're at it, they might as well upgrade their cameras or something because whenever sports are played on the mediacom channel, it looks like they are recording them with a handheld camera from 1980.
