TWC adds a fresh dozen HD channels in parts of West LA

Darren Murph

No longer will you be ridiculed by nearly everyone else in Southern California, West LA residents -- Time Warner Cable has just dropped its latest dozen HD channels in your area. According to a local, he asserts that the SDV conversion has finally been completed in the region, enabling Discovery HD (418), Golf / Versus HD (423), ESPNews HD (426), CNN HD (432), HGTV HD (433), Food HD (434), Disney HD (435), ABC Family HD (436), TLC HD (437), A&E HD (438), History HD (439) and National Geographic HD (440) to be seen at long last. Also of note, USA HD (450) and CNBC HD (451) were added for additional Olympics coverage last Friday, though we'd expect those to vanish in under a fortnight.

Update: Exact neighborhoods and corresponding launch dates now after the jump. Thanks, HD!
