I've read that on a couple sites. I do hope it true, but if not I will still probably subscribe as the movie selection is really good and even has me considering dropping Netflix.

My flabber has been gasted and my gob has been smacked. Anything else?

Nayan,

I am so sorry about your job loss. That certainly doesn't seem right! If the Internet or email system goes down, it's not the customers fault.

On another note, our monthly notice likely comes this week.

I'm not really expecting anything but you never know.
I don't know what Brighthouse will do,

I heard that EPIX from TWC is $4.95/12 months.

After that, it is BELIEVED that the price will go up to $9.95/month.

Thanks. My supervisor was a dream to work with, my big boss not so much. He's a very black/white kind of guy so really it didn't surprise me. I've officially thrown my hat into the retirement ring though so my 9-5 days are over (or in my case, graveyard shifts) .

David, you can go to the app and sign up for a free two-week trial if you want to try it out. I did that awhile ago, that's why I got very excited when it was announced BH was adding EPIX .

Cable Card Update

One of my televisions uses a cable card. Today, I am getting an onscreen message that a cable card firmware upgrade is in process and will take 3600 seconds. At the end of the hour, it claims success, but a channel change starts the process again. Is anyone else seeing this?

George, you might have to send Gary a message and have him take a look. I don't think it's supposed to do that .

Our notice has arrived early and before Michigan AGAIN.

There are no surprises though.

MTM Changes

FearNet expires on July 30. Given the TWC-Comast merger, this might stay until it folds into Chiller. FearNet was on TWC notices so this was expected.

On or after August 4, 2014

MC: MCU (channel 403) will rebrand to MC: MC Indie

On or after August 12, 2014

It has a chart and to sum it up, all of the OTA channels will no longer be available in analog format. If you don't have a box, you need those DTA's.

Conclusion

All in all, no surprises and it's not like BHN has anything to add either.

Just look at the possibilities list in my newly updated signature.

Anyone really bummed about not getting Daystar HD, Pivot HD, Revolt HD and NHK World HD or channels that may not exist like Aspire HD or Retirement Living HD? I mean I do want Pivot but they need stuff to add in future quarters.

This quarter is all about SEC Network and believe a deal will get done before the launch in late-August.

Does this mean you will no longer be able to tune to, say 13, and News 13 will come in? I have automatic HD enabled, so it's not as big issue as it was, but I have an occasional visitor who just can't get in the habit of tuning to, say, 1013, to make sure he gets the HD feed.


We GOTTA get SEC Network. I'm sure we'll get it, but I've always been a glass half empty person & I'd rather hear something definitive from BH.

Property,

News 13 is exclusive to BHN. It's not OTA.

On SEC Network, it probably will come down to the wire but am confident we will get it.

Right, one of the broadcast channels should have been used in my example, say 5 WKMG(6), in lieu of 1060.

I figured there wasn't going to be much in the notice. I am hoping you will get your Pivot sometime before the end of the year though!

Property: They will soon be going all digital, meaning that if your TV is plugged into the wall you will receive nothing so you will need a DTA.

I realize that-we have 2 DTAs, an HD DVR and three converters...will you no longer be able to tune to 5 on your converter, and get 6 WKMG, etc.?

If it's the way it works here, you will see the channels as you see them now with the converter. If you don't have a coverter, you will lose locals.

Ah I get what you mean property. I don't think those are going away just yet. I think that was more for those who still have Limited Basic and plug directly into their TV's without a box.

The Michigan notice has no surprises either. Other that what you've got, our Fox Sports 2 SD/HD is moving from channels 556/656 to 167/367 on or after August 1st. Due to geography, my urgency re any SEC deal is a tad lower than you guys.

The only reason I care about getting the sec network is the fact the Disney owns espn. Which mean with a deal to get the sec means we may get access the watch Disney apps.

Hello. If something's been posted on this, I apologize. I have looked back several pages and haven't seen anything and I've even done a Google search on this matter, but I can't find any real answers. There's still the pending merger of Comcast and Time Warner out there. If this happens will there be any effect on Bright House customers?

Welcome Frank! As to your question, honestly no one knows yet. Time Warner usually helps Brighthouse secure deals as far as programming goes and they do use some of their technology but Brighthouse is a separate company on paper. It's a waiting game right now.

Some Comcast notices are saying FearNet is ceasing operations in July.

This could very well be the case as I've seen some movies I saw in The Fearnet guide on Chiller's.

Hopefully, they will use FearNet's HD feed to create one for Chiller.

dotsdavid,

Those will probably be in the cards for us too as Indy and Michigan usually gets them first. I did not see it in any of your notices

Do you guys already have the English version of Boomerang?

Nayan: I'm really hoping Chiller HD comes soon.
