Just an FYI...

On August 1st, VH1 Classic will be rebranded MTV Classic, which will include old stuff, like Beavis and Butthead and Headbanger's Ball

I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly. Crap I say

Nayan,

That is good news and will become another channel I want in HD although Beavis and Butthead will not be in HD. I like having everything in my HD section.

I have it OTA so I am set . Pretty good channel actually, though sadly I doubt Spectrum will add it to their lineup.

It's sounds like teen nick may get a possible rebrand soon because their only new show they air is teen nick top 10 which is a music video countdown. With mtv hits become Nick music.

It's a much longer MTM list now, which I'm sure just thrills HDO . I am taking a guess, but I think all of those are probably due to Spectrum and the timing of their deals. I hope all of those get resolved quickly as it wouldn't look good to have just taken over then have channels disappear in disputes.

David: It probably will be rebranded soon and if I hear anything I'll post it here .

Thanks Nayan and Yimitz!

It appears The Turner deal might have been for one year. Not sure if we got APP Access but he did get HD On Demand.

NHL Network is also back on the deals as they jump on and off every couple of months.

While we got nothing this month, each month is a month further into the transition and hopefully those new additions will come.

Other notes from the MTM's.

It appears a renewal agreement with WKMG got done and a new deal with POP (Formerly TV Guide Network) was done as we now have HD On Demand from them.

The link in my signature has been updated.

Is it time for a 4k/8k thread? I read the Olympics were going to be broadcast in 4k... What is required for us to receive a 4k broadcast (other than the TV, of course). Would BHN need new infrastructure? Would we need new boxes like we did for HD?

I would certainly need a new pair of eyeglasses to appreciate the 4K picture.

BHN/Spectrum won't have it in 4K. *D will offer some of it in 4K, but I don't plan on upgrading my TV anytime soon. And I would need new eyes as well .

I probably will buy a 4K TV sometime over the next 18 months but even if BHN had 4K, the only part of The Olympics that I plan to watch is the basketball.

Wow indeed. A lot of stuff for TWC areas that didn't get it, and some stuff here that would be newsworthy for Charter too. Centric HD, Logo HD, Discovery Life HD, Mexico 22 HD, Up HD, NBA TV HD and QVC Plus HD would be new for Charter, and I would figure those areas would get those. I'm surprised Teen Nick HD wasn't included in this. CenturyLink Prism is the only one to have it thus far, I think.

There's still some subtle regional differences between what TX and CA is getting, and even within them (i.e. FamilyNet HD comes to Dallas and San Antonio, but not Austin). TX is getting more HD internationals than CA, and CA doesn't appear to be getting the Centric, Logo, Discovery Life, QVC Plus stuff.

The hope is that this is the start of changes. The dry spell we have had for over a year started because outside of International and west coast feeds, there was not much to add.

Then, the holdouts starting launching and we have been stuck.

OM: If you see anything Charter related, please post it.

This really sucks!

I had been wanting the channel but now it's going under.

On the bright side, Viceland has been really good and they have some shows that seem similar to Pivot but with more money behind them.

It's just the reality of things these days with Independent networks.

I guess now my want list is

1) Chiller HD
2) Boomerang (On MTM's now)

I find their interpretation of "small price increases" after the first year of a promo to be somewhat different than mine. $39.95 to $59.95 is 50 percent. I would call that "significant" but then I learned math a long time ago.

I want to see prices with the Internet bundle.

On another note, Yimitz will likely get the Michigan notice later today and given how TWC got some new stuff, we could as well.

Here's hoping the drought ends.
