Cablevision HD channel lineup

My geek side has been showing through recently, but I've now been reliably informed that, as previously indicated, Cablevision will be launching the following High Definition channels on January 15th:

Movie Channels
HBO HD - 450
Cinemax HD - 455
Showtime HD - 460
TMC HD - 465

Food - 425
HGTV - 430
Wealth - 435
National Geographic - 440
Sportsnet - 445 (likely)

The variety channels could be better (ie. ESPNHD, ESPN2HD, HDNet and DiscoveryHD), and there are no local networks (ABD, NBC, FOX, CBS) right now, but it's a good start.

It would seem that you will need to use either CableCard (available at M&Ms), Cablevision's DVR, or an HD Tivo instead of the existing box which lacks the HD outputs.
