Excellent news for fans of Transformers and G.I. Joe! I was flipping through the channels on my Comcast DVR last night. I saw channel 130, which is the Hub channel. When I selected the Hub channel to watch Transformers, I noticed the screen was also giving me the option to watch in HD on channel 383!
Transformers: Generation 1 comes on at midnight Eastern Standard Time. G.I. Joe is on immediately afterwards. Both shows are presented in a widescreen format; although, I don’t believe this is the original format. I say this because at the end of the show you can see some of the names have been cut off. I really have no idea why the Hub channel doesn’t just show the programs in their original 4:3 ratio.
I can say it really is cool seeing these programs in high-definition. The Hub HD channel also broadcasts these programs in a 5.1 digital sound format. Overall, I’m very pleased Comcast has added this Hub HD channel with some of my favorite programs!
