Changes to WDW resort television channels

Sorry if this was already posted elsewhere...still trying to get caught up from being MIA for a little while. Thought those who actually have time to watch TV while at Disney might appreciate this. We have the TV on sometimes in the evening when we are there but it's usually on the Disney Channel for the kids.

Great news for anyone who enjoys going back to their on-site resort after some fun at the parks but has always been disappointed by the limited number of television stations available. The cable television selection on property is about to be upgraded in a big way. Taking place in a staggered rollout beginning March 13, 2012, and expected to be completed by May 8, 2012, the new television lineup will feature channels including Fox News, Bravo, AMC, TBS, TNT, Travel Channel, Discovery, HGTV, TLC, History Channel, Food Network, TV Land, SyFy and National Geographic.

The rollout schedule is as follows:

March 13: Disney's Port Orleans Resorts
March 15: Disney's Old Key West Resort
March 20: Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort
March 22: Disney's Pop Century Resort
April 3: Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa
April 5: Disney's Coronado Springs Resort
April 10: Disney's All-Star Resorts
April 12: Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
April 17: Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts
April 19: Disney's BoardWalk Inn
April 24: Disney's Contemporary Resort
April 26: Disney's Polynesian Resort
May 1: Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
May 3: Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort
May 8: Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

We were pleased to see this. I should turn on the TV and make sure they're telling the truth!

It is nice to hear although we never even turn the tv on when we are there.

I watched the Food Network briefly at POFQ while doing some work, so that was nice!
