HD

So I'm flipping around looking for something to watch, and I end up slumming through the non HD channels, and happen upon The Daily Show. After watching a few minutes and remembering how funny it is, it makes me wonder why I never watch it anymore. The answer, of course, is because it isn't in HD. I rarely even check these low digit third world channels anymore. But that brings up an interesting question: why the hell isn't there a Comedy Central HD channel? They seem to have snuck by without one somehow. When I only had the networks, and maybe ESPN and premium channels, this was perfectly understandable. These things take time. But as the other normal cable channels that I watch regularly, like FX, AMC, SciFi, Discovery, TNT, TBS, etc. have all shown up on my HD lineup, Comedy Central is still absent. And now, as I flip through, I see HD channels like E!, Animal Planet, HGTV, the Travel channel, Cartoon Network, Golf, and nonsense channels like UHD, and PLDHD (seriously, what the fuck is PLDHD?), or MYTVJ (I don't know either), yet still no Comedy Central. Do they just not want people to watch it? I can't really think of any other reason at this point. Any other channels that are conspicuously missing an HD version?

Very good question, John. I was wondering this myself the other day, after finding Travel Channel HD so we could record Anthony Bourdain's show. I think Comedy Central is the last channel of any significance whatsoever to still be SD-only.

Agree on CC, but TNT isn't really HD 1/2 the time. It's just stretched grainy shit. Not that I sit around watching L&O reruns, but unless it's sports or recent movies, it usually sucks too.

I don't understand this either.

And I am so annoyed that I don't get Travel Channel at all, let alone Travel Channel HD. I am in No Reservations withdrawal.

You are a day late:

Though it may take a while to it is offered on many cable systems, I wonder what their ratings are?

OK so you posted Monday, how's that for customer service.
