      Here is the official notice:

      HDNet Delves into the Supernatural with the
      Smash-Hit BBC Series “TORCHWOOD” – Premiering
      Monday, September 17



      Provocative Sci-Fi Thriller Set to Air Every
      Monday in High Definition on HDNet Beginning
      September 17 at 7:00 p.m. ET

      DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HDNet announced today
      that it has acquired the high definition rights
      to the first 26 episodes of TORCHWOOD, the hit
      sci-fi drama that the BBC describes as
      “inventive, intelligent and unpredictable.”

      Set in Cardiff, Wales, TORCHWOOD is the name
      given to a renegade group of investigators who
      scavenge alien technology to solve crime, both
      alien and human. Led by Captain Jack Harkness,
      the Torchwood Institute is a group onto
      themselves, “separate from the government,
      outside the police and beyond the United
      Nations.” The series delves into the unknown,
      with the characters battling against the
      impossible and highly volatile world of savage
      aliens and monsters while still trying to
      maintain their own lives.

      In what the BBC called an "incredible
      achievement," the first two installments of
      TORCHWOOD set a ratings record in the U.K.,
      scoring higher than “LOST” when the two programs
      went head-to-head.

      “We’re thrilled to be airing TORCHWOOD in HD,”
      said Mark Cuban, president and co-founder of
      HDNet. “This is certainly a Russell T. Davies
      signature show. TORCHWOOD explores adult themes
      and doesn't shy away from anything. Whether it’s
      the diverse storylines or the hero’s ambivalence
      to sexual boundaries, this is not your typical
      show, and I love it.”

      TORCHWOOD is a spin-off of the long running
      science fiction hit DR. WHO. HDNet will premiere
      TORCHWOOD on Monday, September 17, at 7:00 p.m.
      ET with encore airings scheduled for 10:00 p.m.
      ET, and 1:00 a.m. ET to accommodate West Coast
      prime time.
