I used Comcast's live technician chat and asked them about getting HDNet, here is the following transcript:
user Brandon_ has entered room


Brandon(Wed Apr 23 2008 19:31:22 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time))>

Curious to know if you will be carrying HDNet anytime soon?


analyst Steven has entered room


Steven(Wed Apr 23 2008 19:31:28 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time))>

Hello Brandon_, Thank you for contacting Comcast Live Chat Support. My name is Steven. Please give me one moment to review your information.


Steven(Wed Apr 23 2008 19:31:47 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time))>

I can assist you with your HD channel questions.


Brandon_(Wed Apr 23 2008 16:32:31 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time))>

Ok, I just want to know if Comcast is going to start carrying the HDNet Channel


Steven(Wed Apr 23 2008 19:32:42 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time))>

i am looking into that for you.


Steven(Wed Apr 23 2008 19:35:12 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time))>

Brandon, I dont have a time frame for when HDNet will be added to the lineup. We are working to provide as many high definition channel broadcasters as possible. Here are some of the factors involved with expanding our high definition lineup:

-the negotiation and contract process required to obtain the rights to carry a specific high definition broadcast, such as TNT-HD and HD-Net.

-the increased bandwidth resources which are required

-the relatively low number of subscribers (currently only a small minority of customers have high definition compatible television sets)

We will continue to explore additional HD programming opportunities as more content providers make plans to offer their programming in HD format.


Brandon_(Wed Apr 23 2008 16:36:14 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time))>

So negotiation with HDNet is in the works though?


Steven(Wed Apr 23 2008 19:36:51 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time))>

Sure, we want to provide as many HD channels as possible to our customers.

I guess I'm supposed to call Comcast, sit on hold for awhile, then tell some local call center rep. that I want HDnet, then go pay a bunch of money for it?

Stream it over the internet or make it available on XBoxLive and I'd consider it. Me mounting an activism campaign just ain't in the cards.

Inside MMA is streamed over the internet, right here on Sherdog. Check it out on the videos section. As far as Xbox Live, we will be launching Bikini Destinations, Get Out! and Art Mann Presents... on May 19th on that platform, with more titles to come.

Trust me, we've been on hold with Comcast for about a year trying to make a deal happen. More coming later on this.

I dont see why not as long as the HD box has component cables but then you are basically going to be paying an extra 20-30 dollars a month just for HD net since none of the other HD channels will look any better for you.

You can get HDNet as long as you have an HD box. The difference is that the picture will not be widescreen (or 1080i) and will fit itself into a standard def television. The HD box usually requires a subscription to an HD tier of channels, but it differs with different providers.
