hmm found a legal notice with the Long Horn Network being added to a TWC outside of Texas lol! Kansas City legal notice says channel 383 as of on or after August 29th.

also now some more notices are mention the PAC12 HD regional feeds being added instead of just the SD versions.

also GET TV is being added in a few more markets on TWC systems.

Kevin,

Those could all be possibilities for us.

I could see LongHorn Network's addition to Sports Pass being part of a possible deal to add SEC Network.

Both LongHorn Network and the Pac 12 Regionals could be stand alone possibilities for our notice as well given our slim pickings.

looks like Oceanic TWC will be carrying the Longhorn Network in SD and HD as of 8/29/14.

I would not be surprised if TWC is finalizing a new distribution agreement with Disney for all their channels as there is mention of the ESPN Game Plan and ESPN Full Court packages collapsing into the sports pass and no longer being offered as a ppv alternative starting in August as well.

So far 3 areas announcing Lonhorn Network to be on the sports pass. Still I wonder if it will be added to the rest of the Texas systems without SDV that have a digital tier? I know that TWC has several 860MHz systems near the Mexico border in Texas that are missing a ton of channels and ironically TWC is finally making changes in those systems at the end of next month they are getting the new lineup as well hopefully this means they will get new HD soon! noticed in last weeks notice that TWC updated the legal notices for Columbus/Eagle Lake TX, Cuero, Gonzales, Yoakum TX, Kerrville TX to show updated channel numbers for the Viacom HD and other HD adds that were supposed to happen ages ago I guess they are finally going to do them?

Kevin,

We saw similar hints when The Discovery deal was close to being renewed with I.D. maybe and eventually moving to basic.

I think an SEC Network deal is imminent and would not be surprised if we get LongHorn Network ourselves in our next notice.

Even though they are not ESPN property, I also think those Pac 12 Regionals could be in play too.

well the new channel lineup brochure I got has the PAC12 regionals listed on channels 376-381 so I think they should be live before August 26th or August 28th.

also for some reason the new lineup I have coming has MavTV listed as MavTV on channel 402 when the HD only channels such as MGM HD etc. only say MGM HD, or Universal HD for example but MavTV is only HD here wonder if they are going to add the SD versions as well for the SD boxes?

So next week will be notice week. Besides SEC, I don't think there's much else to really get excited over. I am looking forward to football, if that counts towards excitement though

Great find Jax!

I knew a deal would get done. It will likely be on Digital basic for all of Florida and Alabama while being on Sports Pass for everyone else.

The real question now is if they agreed to add LongHorn Network on everyone's Sports Pass and Fusion along with some other apps.

After all, they do like to add more than one channel during a quarter and they still can.

Other possibilities for next week include The Pac 12 Regional Channels and a stand alone channel like Pivot or Revolt.

We shall see next week and keep in mind that our last two notices have come on a Wednesday.

In the end, it's great to know SEC Network is out of the way.

Another sign that FearNet shuts down Thursday at midnight..............

In the program guide, it just says Movie every two hours after House of 1000 Corpses airs at 10 PM on Wednesday.

Question Will you buy EPIX?

Curious to know if you plan to buy EPIX for $5/M if you already have HBO/SHO/MAX/STARZ.

I know it is not a lot of money but is it worth an additional $60 a year if you already have all those other movie channels?

Thoughts...

Nayan: Me too especially since they seem to be showing more movies with the movies from FearNet already starting to come over.

R-U-Q-R-U: I actually do not think it is worth having any of HBO/SHO/MAX/STARZ anymore especially with what you get on basic and digital basic.

On HBO, I do miss Real Time with Bill Maher and Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel. I would also like to see Last Week with John Oliver and some Documentaries but it's not worth $20 a month.

I have not seen any of Cinemax's new series and have no interest in Starz.

I'm leaning towards just ordering Showtime for two days durin the holidays to binge this season of Homeland. While Showtime is still an option with their Indy movies, The TMC split from the package further turns me off.

EPIX is actually a great value compared to other packages. You get nice OD and I love that Drive-In Channel.

At $5, it's also a better bargain than HD Pak $5 and the $10 soon to be FearNet-less Movie Pass when you mostly just get Encore and Plex.

I might just get EPIX after the trial.

The only Premium channel I have is HBO. It is expensive but I watch pretty much every show they have and use HBO Go to watch the ones I've never seen so to me it's worth the money. I will probably end up dropping the Movie Pass as I really don't watch it as much and with Fearnet shutting down there's no reason to keep it. I am definitely getting EPIX once the trial is over though.

It's notice week.

The notice will likely have SEC Network in there and word that FearNet is shutting down. It is indeed official that it all ends Thursday at midnight.

http://www.fearnet.com/videos/fearnet-farewell

The real question is if possibilities like LongHorn Network, Pac 12 Regionals or something like Pivot, Revolt or something new will be in there.

I get the paper Wednesday and Thursday and will see it at my barber's on Tuesday.

Anyone getting it Monday?

No notice today so it will be here tomorrow unless we missed it which hopefully we did not.

On the other site, The Birmingham Notice was posted and the only news from it is Jewelry TV might be off MTM's.

SEC Network was not listed but we know it's coming and they also formally announced the end of FearNet tonight.

As it stands, we might only get SEC Network this quarter. It shows how dried up those carriage deals really are.

We shall see if we get anything in the end of August notice.

I hate it when they do that. I had planned on tuning in for the final hour after Sharknado 2 but I guess not now.

Nayan,

I was going to get Movie Pass for the final night.

It's been a long journey. I remember the VOD service, it getting dropped and then the shocking announcement that we would get the 24/7 channel.

Our notice is not much different from The Birmingham one yesterday.

The only real news............

It appears Jewelry TV and also Caracol TV are off the Month to month agreements.

This leaves only

Gol TV, NHL Network/NHL Center Ice, Outdoor Channel, Youtoo and Zap2it on the deals.


Other than that, there are some OTA channels changing frequency on or after August 19.

It only affects customers who receive programming through a digital-ready television (with a QAM tuner) and do not have a digital device. They will just have to re-scan their television sets to continuing viewing the channels.

And finally, they list the death of FearNet which happened yesterday.

I didn't think there would be much. At least the MTM list has dwindled down some more.

I remember all the FearNet drama and the cheers when it was announced we would get it. Yesterday was a sad day but not being able to see the final programming made it even worse. Let's hope Chiller goes HD quickly.
