8 New channels added (maybe in test mode) today (All currently Unauthorized on my subscription package):

CBC Vancouver CBUTD 613
Global Vancouver CHAND 614
CTV Vancouver CTVHV 615
WPIXD New York 632
KTLAD LA 633
Raptors RAPHD 730
TVAHD Montreal 771

Surprisingly no RDS HD that has been advertised for a long time as coming soon.

Well, these channels are still vapourware as they have listings but aren't viewable, so you are missing nothing.

Yes but why are you seeing them all in Dartmouth and here in Halifax there nowhere to be seen? Don't you find that kind of odd? I don't see the channels on my guide at all here in Halifax.

Maybe I live on the same node as the guy at EastLink who is testing them this weekend.

No MovieTimeHD in the bunch, sad. Was hoping that would be added. Can do without the Canadian timeshifts though,waste of bw when they could have added MovietimeHD instead.

I checked last night and I was able to tune in 613, 614, 615, 632, 633 here in Charlottetown.

I do have the SD versions.

Forgot to check the others because I never go into the 700 channel range.

Does anyone have those channels permanently yet? I see on Eastlink's website they are listed in the 4.95 HD package but here in the B'water area I'm not getting them. I do subscribe to the SD channels. They also show a logo of a yellow V in a black circle. Not sure what channel that might be. I'm thinking if they're showing in the pkg we should be getting them.

Read the posts, the city of Halifax as mentioned by me and jimbo do not have these channels either. It seems only a select few systems got them added. Dartmouth has them, so does Bedford and sackville but for some strange reason eastlinks biggest market Halifax got left off the list when these channels went live. All the systems around Halifax that were once owned by Shaw years ago got the channels which has me to believe that the Halifax system maybe has ran out of BW and the old shaw systems have more BW than Halifax which sucks if that is the case.

Thanks. I did read the posts and was wondering if Hfx had them yet as we are on the same system as they are. It's been awhile since anyone posted anything here so I thought I would check before calling Eastlink. That way if Hfx didn't have them I wouldn't bother calling.

Amherst has them..... I don't have the SD equivalents so I can't watch them but they are all there in the guide.
