Comedy Central HD arriving on Virgin Media September 1st

Not sure whether South Park is going to look any better in HD, but anyway, the folk over on the Digital Spy forums were right and I was wrong. Here's the official Press Release:
Comedy Central HD to launch on Virgin Media
Virgin Media’s TV customers will be able to enjoy Comedy Central in its full High Definition (HD) glory as the channel joins Virgin Media’s growing HD line-up in September.
Comedy Central HD will provide viewers with the biggest and most exciting comedies available to the UK in glorious High Definition including Two and a Half Men, 30 Rock and South Park, in addition to new UK commissions. Virgin Media will also make some popular Comedy Central HD programmes available on demand.
Cindy Rose, executive director of digital entertainment at Virgin Media said: “We’re delighted to be expanding our line-up with Comedy Central’s brilliant new HD channel and will be making great shows like South Park available in HD and on demand too.”
Jill Offman, Managing Director Comedy Central commented: “We’ve always been the funniest channel on TV, now we’ll be the best looking one too.”
Comedy Central HD will join Virgin Media’s line-up on 1st September on channel 133 and will be available to Virgin Media’s XL TV customers at no extra monthly fee.

30 Rock in HD. Result!

Tina Fey is a cutey and she's a smart lass too.

Yep, I'm a big 30 Rock fan too. It will be good to have it in widescreen and hopefully they will show season five soon after the US transmission.
My problem with the channel though is the ridiculous DOGs they crowd the screen with. Urghh.

slightly off topic, but Eden HD and Good Food HD are launching - but exclusive to Sky if you can believe it.
No wonder VM are offloading the stake in UKTV if that's the kind of benefits their 50% stake entitles them to.
and apparently, sky movies classics HD is also not coming to VM - apparently it wasn't part of the deal signed recently.
