Don't forget Shaw Direct. I just assumed Shaw Direct was not going to add these channels. They still don't have Mpix HD. I'm assuming that if Astral ever gets around to launching Family in HD, Shaw Direct/Shaw Cable wont add that either because they still don't have Playhouse Disney.
Cool to have 2 more hd channels, but to be honest I would rather to option to save $2 and not get them. Reason being is that all these movies are on TMN1 and TMN2 and HBO1 and HBO2 anyways, so if you have a pvr they are not all that useful. I look over the new movies each month and then set timers for the ones I want. Whether they are on TMN1 or Exess, it dosent matter to me.
In moderately related news, I noticed last night that Movie Central is offering MXSHD and MFNHD starting on December 9; no description for those, but I assume they're HD versions of some of the SD "premium" movie channels.
