    Not so. Just spoke to Comcast. I’m in the greater Philadelphia area and I don not have the above mentioned channels. The comcast rep told me they have no plans to add Speed HD, FX HD or Fox News HD at present.

    From a Comcast rep – this may help clarify:

    On or around June 12, ION Television WPXN-HD (channel 272) will launch in Comcast of Union, Meadowlands and Plainfield.

    Comcast of Burlington, Gloucester, Garden State and Maple Shade & Comcast of Central New Jersey are getting both ION (channel 272) and WFMZ-TV HD (channel 271).

    Those channels are not on in our part of NJ, the “Garden State” system. Perhaps we’ll get Ion on the 12th, but why another channel that specializes in repeats is beyond me. Will we ever get Sci-Fi HD, which has some original programming?

    I doubt union is getting it. Must be a wrong source….WFMZ isn’t even carried here in Union.
