Not to be ungrateful, Time Warner, but....

You know, I don't like to complain, and I'm happy Time Warner Cable of NYC has added more High Def channels to their lineup - but some of the new channels: ehh.

I was certainly happy to see CNN HD among the additions (although the thought of Larry King in HD is a bit frightening) but Hallmark Movie Channel, The Food Network, HGTV?

Why not Sci Fi or BBC America so I can nerdily watch "Dr. Who" and "Torchwood" in HD?

How do they figure which ones to add?

Not to mention, I see HGTV seems to do a lot of that stretch-o-vision thing that TBS HD does to fill the 16:9 screen. Not really HD. Not cool.

Time Warner is promising 100 HD channels by the end of the year. We will see.

Because Verizon is wiring my building for FIOS, even as I type, and I believe they recently got approval to offer it in Manhattan.

I'm not too thrilled with their cell phone division lately, but I have to admit, that FIOS looks mighty tasty.

This is quite possibly the worst blog I have ever read. Thanks for wasting 15 minutes of my life. You are so un-informed it is sickening... another product of public miseducation at it's finest. For the sake of all of us, thank God it looks like you stopped blogging.
