Although Cox isn't hooking the OC and Palos Verdes, California up with quite as many new HD channels as those in Fredericksburg, VA, eight newcomers isn't anything to sneeze at. Judging by e-mails (and postcards, too) starting to filter out to OC-area residents, said carrier will soon be delivering KCET HD (PBS), Travel Channel HD, Science Channel HD, NHL HD, HBO HD, Cinemax HD, Showtime HD and Starz HD. Unfortunately, all we know is that these should arrive in your EPG sometime during the course of next month, but just in case eight new faces weren't enough, Cox is also promising that "even more" are on the way.
