The surface of Mars? Psh... been there. With the Curiosity stage well under way, our exploration of the Red Planet is about to take a dive beneath the dust. Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport -- InSight, for short -- was just confirmed as a new NASA missi

We already counted four major cable providers who either already have or soon will increase their rates in one aspect or another, and now you can make it an even five. Insight Communications will be hiking rates for many customers by around $3 per month come January, and while it would be easy to l

Now, we're being treated to a delicious dash of confirmation. The Courier-Journal is reporting that 33 new HD channels will be added in and around Louisvi

Details are exceptionally vague at the moment, but Insight Communications is currently testing an internet service capable of hitting (theoretical) download speeds as high as 100Mbps.

Unfortunately for those in areas that used to be covered by Insight, it seems that not all of you will be blessed with the full 22 HD channels that were announced for Bloomington, IL.

Call us looney, but asking actual subscribers which HD channels they'd like to see most seems like an... astonishingly fantastic idea. Lo and behold, Insight has gone and done exactly that by hosting a survey for its customers to submit. Essentially, it asks respondents to select the top eight chan

Considering that every single New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays matchup will be seen in HD in their respective markets, it's understandable for Reds fans to long for more than Time Warner Cable delivered last season. During 2007, TWC failed to carry the initial 33 Cincinnati Reds games on FSN Ohi
