Sometimes the humor is in the details. That may be what Comedy Central is hoping when it launches a high definition version of the network. Comedy Central HD will be going live on Cablevision, DirecTV and Cox later this month, with additional carriers expected to be added throughout the year.

To go along with the conversion, the network will be boosting its HD programming lineup. At launch the network will have 200 hours of native HD programming, including nearly 30 episodes of South Park and the first two seasons of The Sarah Silverman Program. A number of feature films, stand up specials and Comedy Central Presents will also be in HD.
