    2 new HD tier channels on Mediacom

    These two just showed up this morning:

    KCWI (809)

    WGN (825)


    That makes all the locals (WOI, KCCI, KCWI, IPTV, WHO, KDSM), plus a handful of nationals (WGN, ESPN, ESPN2, FSN, TNT, TBS, CNN) and some other specialty networks.

    Re: 2 new HD tier channels on Mediacom

    Indeed. Since Comcast isn't an option for non-cable folk in these parts, WGN-HD will be a somewhat acceptable replacement.

    Let's just hope it's not another 15 innings tonight.

    Too bad they can't kill there analog service so they can add a ton more. Of course that is probably 50% of their business.

    SWEET, finally I can watch Smallville in HD!


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    How many hours of HD content can you record (assuming it is a DVR as well)?


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Yay... I noticed the KCWI HD, but I didn't notice the WGN HD when I was flipping through it.

    Re: 2 new HD tier channels on Mediacom

    How nice...

    DirecTV has a LOT more HD channels than that (not taking jabs at you - I'm taking jabs at Mediacom proclaiming the addition of these channels as some great accomplishment).

    the difference is at mediacom you don't have to pay extra to get them.

    Re: 2 new HD tier channels on Mediacom

    If these channels are anything like their TBS HD channel, they're worthless. There is barely any HD programming on TBS HD. Most of the old sitcoms they rerun probably weren't recorded in HD so that's understandable. But they play a lot of movies, none of which are in HD either which really bothers me. Their next-channel-neighbor, TNT, has plenty of HD content. TBS did actually have a baseball game in HD on Sunday, but that's all I've seen.

    Re: 2 new HD tier channels on Mediacom

    I really don't need all those HD channels anyway. I get discovery, espn's locals, tnt, comcast sportsnet. Sure more would be nice but it is ok for now.
