Comcast viewers in Severna Park, Maryland won't be able to enjoy any new high-def channels before the Christmas break (barring any unforeseen changes in plans), but they will be treated to seven new ones in January. According to a local, the carrier has sent out a message to subscribers that FOX Business HD (220), Planet Green HD (230), Toon Disney HD (243), Lifetime Movie Network HD (247), ESPNews HD (256), MGM HD (258) and Biography HD (219) will be added on or around January 19, 2009. Now, let your patience be tested.
