Yeah, I "accidentally discovered" them yesterday.

I wonder how long it will be before Bright House tells all their customers these are available.

Default Lifetime Movie Network HD

I noticed this last night around midnight.

Holy crap.... I now get an HD channel on BHN that DirecTV doesn't offer me.. LMN HD... wow... yippy.... not that I will ever watch LMN HD.

As I foolishly pay for both DirecTV Premier (the full premium and sports channel package, along with two DVRs ~$140) and the basic HD-DVR digital package with BHN (approx $70/month), I can now happily say I get a channel on BHN that I don't get on DirecTV. I am paying $70 a month for American Life, which DirecTV doesn't have (the wife and I DVR "Til Debt Do Us Part," a Canadian import show about you guessed it, consumer debt) and LMN HD, which I don't watch. Oh, and must not I forget Bay News 9 *insert sarcasm here*.

I am still waiting to see what they do. When FIOS goes live in my neck of town (sooner than later I hope), I intend to lower my DirecTV package (riding out the contract perhaps) and go full FIOS with all those sexy movie channels (dropping BHN). I am not too hot on the Verizon DVR though. But I have really gotten to enjoy the DirecTV DVR and like it. Not too impressed with the BHN DVR these days.

I would actually like to see BHN add Fox News HD. I still don't get that one on DirecTV, so Fox News is one of the few SD channels I still watch. BHN and DirecTV both get FX now, why not Fox News HD? Hopefully soon, from at least one of the providers.

Yeah, like Fox News HD instead of FX, and Travel Channel HD instead of LMN HD.

Yeah... that is how they roll..... just add them and let people stumble on them. I think they are embarrassed that this is all they got. When they added seven channels 10 months ago they were up our a$$e$ about it, but they put out this crap and they do it under the radar.

I want Fox News HD and Travel Channel HD.... that goes for both DirecTV and BHN! I don't care who is first.
