Seriously, this is out of control. If a local telco serving just a (comparative) handful of residents in North Carolina can deliver thirty-flippin'-four high-def channels, why are the big name cable carriers having such difficulty? With the addition of CNBC HD and Bravo HD, the grand total on said provider sits at 34, and considering the frequency in which it has been adding newcomers, we wouldn't be surprised to see that figure grow to 50 in the next year. Comcast, Charter, Cablevision, TWC, et al. -- take note, please.
