More HD for Comcast customers
On Monday, Comcast will be adding six high definition channels to its HD package: Cinemax HD (channel 753), VERSUS/Golf Channel HD (channel 754), Universal HD (channel 755), MHD (channel 756), National Geographic HD (channel 757) and A&E HD (channel 758).
Those join the 13 already in the package. You need digital cable and an HD subscription ($7/month, $11.95 with the HD DVR), but rates aren't going up.
Local HD fans have been waiting for this for a long time, so it's good news for them. And another good reason to upgrade to an HDTV if you've been considering it -- it's less than a year and a half until the existing broadcast signals go away and you'll need some sort of converter to keep your old TV.
