Cox North Virginia adds elevenCox has added 11 new HD channels to its lineup in Northern Virginia, bringing the tally to 31. With the additions, Cox has almost doubled its HD count since the beginning of 2007. Kudos, not a bad showing at all. There's some good stuff in the new channels, too: History Channel, Science Channel, Animal Planet, CNN, Versus/Golf, TBS, Food Network, HGTV, TLC, Discovery and NHL Network. Nice going, Cox, but why did you have to put in the bit about this being "more than any local competitor?" This may be technically true, but it's pretty misleading; last time we checked, DirecTV is available in Virginia.
