Time Warner gets in on HD War

DirecTV has grabbed all the headlines lately with its plethora of new HDTV channels, which are being delivered to customers without the compression of many of its competitors.

DirecTV's now offering 41 HD channels with plans to release at least 25 more this month.

DISH and Comcast have bolstered their HD lineups of late and now Time Warner Cable in Charlotte is expanding its lineup.

The company added TBS-HD in time for the baseball playoffs. Mike Munley, president of the Charlotte division, said customers will see several new channels on Oct. 15: TA&E, Golf/Versus, MTV and the new Fox Business Channel.

Yeah, I saw a TW ad in this week's Creative Loafing announcing the new channels (TBS HD is already live, the others on 10/15). So it's good we're getting more HD channels.

But to paraphrase Dire Straits:

I want my, I want my, I want my Cinemax HD...

I am watching it now on DirecTV. Like a few others here, I left cable initially for DISH and now for Direct. Their deals and channels are too much to miss.

Langston, a sincere thanks for this blog. I'm learning a lot of stuff. I have DISH network and my plan is up and am considering switching. HDTV is not really important to me. I don't have an HDTV and right now no plans to buy one. I bought an EDTV (don't laugh) 2 y ears ago. What do you recommend for me?

Price is important. Channel choice is important, too.
