Time Warner Cable now at 100 free HD channels. Too bad lots of them stink.


Time Warner Cable in New York adds a bunch of HD channels to its lineup today, chief among them Fox Business Channel HD and Disney HD. The e-mail it sent me this morning touts the fact that all TWC customers can now enjoy 100 free (for some reason “free” is capitalized in the e-mail, like it’s a proper noun) HD channels, never mind that lots of those channels are junk (like Fox Business… pretty sure if I wanted business news I’d read the Financial Times).

Still, it’s nice to wake up with a few extra HD channels. I hear that many of these so-called HD channels, like History Channel HD, are simply upconverted versions of the standard-def channel and not real HD.
