Could The MGM Channel finally be coming to the States?

If you take a look at the The MGM Channel homepage, you'll see a pull-down list with a long list of countries. A few countries are conspicuously absent, including the US.

Why'd I even look?

On July 30, 2007 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Lion Corp. filed a trademark app with the USPTO to protect MGM HD for use in the States for the first time. The paperwork protects MGM HD for "cable television broadcasting services and high definition cable television broadcasting services."

Maybe we'll finally get to watch some of MGM's vast library, "comprising approximately 4,000 titles and over 10,400 episodes of television programming." (MGM Networks)
