dotsdavid,

They will probably pop up for us too within the next few days.

It would be weird if they gave us Boomerang in En Espanol and not English.

Some have wanted Boomerang here for a while. I bet it finally comes for us the next time the Turner deal is up.

Kevin,

The possibilities list is starting to dry up. The next big one will be SEC Network.

My life would be complete if we got Boomerang! Of course, my kids have now outgrown cartoon channels... LOL! I would still definitely watch.

hmm still have a lot of possibilities for my area and considering the TWC/Comcast merger (Marriage) isn't moving along very fast TWC may keep adding channels to systems just to stay current they may start going back and adding things like MTV2 HD, BBC America HD to areas that are missing them? hmm
the only real changes that I know of area: PAC12 regionals in SD being added and QVC HD being added likely when the new lineup happens.

Comcast is apparently adding SEC Network so TWC/BHN and Direct TV are the last two big holdouts.

I do think a deal gets done before launch though.

Kevin: Your area does have a little catching up to do.

hmm yeah we do have some catching up to do but we are missing just odds and ends channels in HD honestly we have every premium channels East Coast in HD except:
Starz Comedy HD
Starz in Black HD
Starz Cinema HD
Encore Action HD
Encore Drama HD
Encore Black HD
Encore Classic HD
(4 Cinemax optional feeds for providers in HD (MovieMax HD, etc.)

also we pretty much have all of the SD versions of most channels lol :P

mainly they have improved the international offerings this year here:
TVB1
TVB2
TVBe
TVBS
TVBV
SBTN
NDTV 24x7
Willow Cricket SD
UTV Movies
ITV Gold
CCTV4
Set Asia
Filmy

all added at then of 2013 or early 2014.

I think TWC is probably mainly focusing on the NCL right now before major channel adds but SEC network will likely included there is likely a deadline for TWC to reup the Disney Channels soon but they might have extended the contract as we now have Disney HD On Demand content on:
Disney XD
Disney Channel SVOD
Disney Channel
Disney Jr.
ABC Family
ESPN
ESPN Deportes

also Nayan your friend in Greenville TX must be on a 860MHz system because the amps are new 1GHz Cisco Gainmaker and the nodes are 1GHz Aurora networks nodes. I was there last week in Greenville and from the looks of it all of the amps have been upgraded

Upgrades are always good Kevin . As long as my friend is happy with his service (which he is) that makes me happy, as I don't have to hear about if he's not .

HDO: I'm pretty sure we'll get the SEC. It's not on my must-have list but I'm sure there are plenty of folks who want this.

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

Thumbs down BH Price Increase

Just got a letter from BH saying effective Sept 1, The Movie Channel will no longer be included as part of my Showtime subscription, but I can have it for only $14 per month.

Now the really big price increases begin. Forget about the nickel and dime stuff, they are going big time. I suppose the next letter will say Cinemax will no longer be included with my HBO subscription.

I have been a subscriber to TWC and then Bright House at this address since 1988. So much for loyalty!

WHAT!?! Really?? Ugh. Actually (and I hate to say this) Cinemax has been separate from HBO for awhile now, so if you still get it as a package consider yourself lucky. That's sucks though, as I was planning on adding all of the movie packages and dumping Netflix but now it sounds like it's really cost-prohibitive .

You would think they would GIVE us EPIX as a replacement!

I got same notice. The Movie Channel is the one I watch the least. So I will be saying goodbye myself.

Not paying $14/month.

I like TMC, but will drop it also. Showtime should have a reduced fee now, since BHN values TMC @ $14.

That sucks about TMC as I was going to order Showtime for "Homeland" this fall.

I do not think it's worth $14 a month though.

I'm not sure what they are going to charge for EPIX but given what we get on network tv now, were better off just getting netflix rather than a premium service although I will get Sports Pass For NFL Redzone this fall.

I'll probably just binge "Homeland" On Christmas Eve or something.

On another note, were getting close to one month until SEC Network launches. I expect a deal but it will be interesting to see if there is a backup update in next month's notice.

EPIX: What's anyone's best guess on what this is going to cost. On average, using the free preview, using remote DVR manager, I'm recording about 1 movie a week, plus/minus.

According to some other forums and info I've seen, TWC charges roughly $5/month. No pricing info for BHN has been released yet, but if I had to guess, maybe $10/month? I would pay that, but no more.

hmm TWC has made some changes in the Dallas area this week!

some SDV changes:

Moved off of SDV:
Fox News HD
We TV HD
Lifetime HD
CNBC HD
MSNBC HD
TLC HD
Spike HD
Comedy Central HD
National Geographic HD
TruTV HD
ABC Family HD
TBS HD

all are now on one of these frequencies (447MHz (analog 61)), (459MHz (analog 63)), (483MHz (analog 67)), (519MHz (analog 73)

and these moved to SDV:
Fox News SD
TLC SD
Comedy Central SD
TBS SD
ABC Family SD
National Geographic SD
Spike SD
We TV SD
CNBC SD
MSNBC SD
TruTV SD

don't know what changes TWC did in Greenville TX Nayan I know they have a different analog lineup so I don't know where they stuck the channels they moved off of SDV to yet if it has happened there just yet.

Soon were going to see a bunch of stuff moved off SDV.

Otherwise, nothing much going on outside of us waiting for SEC Network news.

The possibilities list is really drying up.

They haven't moved yet, according to my friend. He'll let me know when they do though .

It's weird with it being so quiet here. Not used to all the silence.

the channels aren't changing box channel numbers per say just the actual frequency that they are on. Also I made a mistake they moved LMN HD off of SDV not Lifetime HD and LMN SD went SDV instead.

I cannot remember the last time this thread dropped to page two.

And were two weeks away from our notices and at most, it will be minor stuff

Of course, what were really waiting for is SEC Network news.

The forums in general have been quiet, mostly due to the software upgrade. I've figured it out, but I guess some other folks haven't and have left, which is a shame .

The big announcement of the 6 tuner DVR has the other forum hopping (and not in a good way).
(I am very pissed off about this but for another reason)

Besides the SEC deal, there's really not much to yak about here. Nothing big channel-wise coming, no big name changes. It's sad, as we were a really close group.

Which forum is hopping because of 6 tuner DVR?
