TWC ups the HD ante in Wetumpka, Alabama

Ever wonder what it takes to get your cable carrier to get on the ball and throw in some new HD channels? We hear whispers of a rival coming to town works wonders. Call it a coincidence, but not too terribly long after AT&T began laying out plans to string U-verse to Alabama, Time Warner Cable has decided to bolster its high-def lineup for no apparent reason. Customers in the Wetumpka / Montgomery area can now view TLC HD (306), Discovery HD (307), National Geographic HD (308), HGTV HD (309), Food Channel HD (310) and MGM HD (784). Hey AT&T, why not threaten to come to a few more neighborhoods? [Disclosure: Engadget is part of the Time Warner family]
