Comcast HDTV customers in Vermont, Mass, NH or NE New York?

by confuxion / August 22, 2008 12:54 PM PDT

I'm posting this in hopes that there is someone out there who is a Comcast HDTV subscriber in any of the mentioned areas, especially Vermont (that's where I am).

I'm considering jumping on the HDTV bandwagon myself, but am obviously concerned about Comcast's ability to deliver a suitable signal to reliably watch their HDTV programming on a 1080p, 52" Samsung set. I don't even know anyone in my area who subscribes to their HDTV service, much less within a 500-mile radius. I do realize that any signal I get will only be 720p, and that 1080p can only be achieved via BluRay.

If you're a Comcast subscriber in any of the areas I mentioned in the subject - especially Vermont - PLEASE post your experiences with their HDTV service, and be as detailed as you wish; any and all info is welcomed. Thanks in advance for helping me out.

Read the post above, and add your two cents if you are a Comcast HDTV customer in ANY region in the US. I'm hoping somebody can share their experiences. Thanks.

I live in Frederick, MD. We get 42 HDTV channels. Now these channels do not broadcast all there programs in HDTV.

When they do it's 1080i. And when it's not it's 720p. Still the broadcasts in 720p look better then SD. Even better than digital.

The 1080i shows look good but not as good as blu-ray. Better than DVD.

Every area is different. My sister lives in Boyton Beach, Fl and she only gets seven HDTV channels so you have to check to see how many you will get.

Lastly when you get a HDTV converter box you can get DVR which is great.
