Comcast has added 17 channels to its HD channels in Spokane County. The availability for viewers depends on one's video service level. This means that Comcast viewers here potentially have 456 channels including the 17 new ones. One can also get 46 music channels.
We asked Comcast what it would cost to get all 456 channels. The answer is not easy; with all sorts of bundles and packages, the price would be tough to calculate. Plus, a fair number of those channels are in several foreign languages.
So let's get to the list of new channels:
CSN-NW HD (Comcast Sportsnet Northwest) 617
CSPAN HD 645
GMC HD 684
GSN HD 718
H2 HD 712
Hub HD 721
INV DSC HD (Investigation Discovery) 713
NGWILD HD 666
SPROUT HD 720
TV Guide HD 717
Cooking Channel HD 716
Smithsonian HD 714
Foodies will be glad to have Cooking Channel. And the government types might really enjoy CSPAN in HD.
If you have questions about availability, you need to contact the cable guys.
Wait. If you counted the list you'll find only 16 channels. Where's No. 17?
It's UNIVIS HD on channel 726. It's being added to Comcast's MultiLatino Spanish package.
