Time Warner Cable customers have been not-so-patiently awaiting this news for months. Starting tomorrow, January 6, the cable company is adding Viacom channels Comedy Central (1304), MTV (1450), VH1 (1454), and BET (1308) to their HD lineup.
They are also adding an HD channel for The Hub (1211), a network of children's programming from Discovery and Hasbro, and for Showtime Beyond (1736, Showtime's sci-fi channel) and 5 Starmax (1725, Cinemax's "modern classics" channel).
Time Warner says they plan to launch additional channels later this month.
I'll await the chorus of "It's about time!" in the comments section below...
