BBC America HD Channel 1188?

While watching Justified, they had an ad for a British show called Ripper Street. What caught my eye was that it was for BBC America and they showed a channel number, displaying 1188 followed by BBC America. Curious, I clicked on 1188 and it automatically took me to 1200, so I'm guessing its not ready. Unless they have a new channel package (I'm in the 400+ one), was this for real and when does it go live? Has anyone else heard about this?

Let's hope it's in the works but, no, BBCA HD is not available YET

 

Since BBCA SD is 188, logically BBCA HD will be 1188.

Maybe if enough of us request BBC America HD they will add it.  I would love to have it right now.  I don't want to miss Dr. Who, Ripper Street and Copper in HD.

I need this channel.  I cannot stand living in a world with no HD Topgear. I end up buying them on iTunes. Come AT&T we need this channel it's like 1995 without it.

U-Verse does not have a channel 1995, The last channel before that is 1932 Encore HD. Perhaps a few more Encore channels would get us to 1995. The next channel currently after 1932 is 2101 NBA Leage Pass Stats..

 

Oh, you mean the year 1995. As Emily Lutella used to say, "Never mind".

Good catch AG....There was no HD in 1995. 

 

HD was introduced in 1998.

I think that was the point of picking 1995.  To the poster, not having BBC America HD is like living in a world without HD.

Actually it started in 1936.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_definition_television#History_of_high-definition_television  1972, ws when you actually saw Japan Broadcasting Company actually introduce it to consumers in their country.  1981, MUSE system was introduced, and President Reagan got to see what the true future would hold.

The woman was correct. There is no BBC America HD in the U-Verse lineup.You can make your request for that channel on this link:

Keep demanding BBC HD because it is the one channel you definitely want in HD. Ripper Street, outstanding
