So every now and again watching the wires for new news, I see an article about such-and-such HD channel now available on Time Warner Cable, but upon reading it, it's only in their New York division, where they're trumpeting their 100-or-so HD channels to compete with Verizon FIOS. I don't know for sure, but I would think that if they have the rights to those channels there, they'd have them elsewhere across the country too. So I checked to see which channels TWC NY has that we don't (excluding local broadcast/sports networks, and those TWC has already announced will soon be added here). These are what I came up with...

TEAM HD
Game HD
The Tennis Channel HD
CBS College Sports HD
NHL Network HD
HBO 2 HD
HBO Signature HD
HBO Family HD
HBO Comedy HD
HBO Zone HD
HBO Latino HD
More Max HD
ActionMAX HD
ThrillerMAX HD
W Max HD
@ Max HD
Five Star Max HD
Outer Max HD
SHO 2 HD
Showcase HD
SHO Extreme HD
TMC HD
TMC Xtra HD
Starz Edge HD
Starz Kids & Family HD
Starz Comedy HD
Encore HD
Crime and Investigation HD
Live Well HD
Style HD
fuse HD
G4 HD
Investigation Discovery HD
QVC HD
HSN HD
Telemundo HD
WE HD
BIO HD
Planet Green HD
Weather Channel HD
IFC HD

There are a number of channels on that list I would love to have, but they haven't yet made it our way.  What I found even more curious is why they don't have any of the Viacom HD channels like Comedy Central, considering they went through a messy and public contract negotiation with them recently, and HD channels should have been part of it.

Which of these would you want them to add here?

I'd like to see them all, but if I had to choose a few, I'd like to have Weather Channel HD And the other offerings of the premium movie channels. I'd like to see TWC at least competitive with U-Verse on the number of HD channels offered. Right now TWC's HD offering is a joke.

I'm with you there. Would

I'm with you there. Would love to see more of the HBO channels in HD, and IFC HD would be nice too. Love that we're getting AMC and Turner Classics HD for sure!

FoxCitiesTV: I'm just glad he's doing actual meteorology again, and not those goofy Oneida Casino ads he did a year or two ago. Good to see him back in the saddle.

TvBoy: From what most people say, Journal doesn't care much about NBC 26. So them spending money would be totally unrealistic. People will watch Larry, but not much else.
