While Verizon seems somewhat uninterested in delving into the heart of Boston with its fiber-based TV service, RCN is pulling out all the stops to stay competitive with those other guys. Just days after gifting Bostonians with the Discovery suite of HD channels, along comes word that seven newcomers have hopped on board since. Effective immediately, users in the region can turn their attention to A&E HD (184), Biography Channel HD (185), History Channel HD (186), Travel Channel HD (188), FX HD (189), Lifetime Movie Network HD (190) and CNN HD (192). Now, if only Josh Beckett would get healthy (and in a hurry), all would well in the world, eh?
