From what I understand, you can keep your plan for as long as you'd like unless you want some of those new channels, in which then you'll need to switch.

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

Well, one new channel Sonlife HD 1116 is in the guide with video although he SD channel does not.

Maybe they mixed that up with Daystar HD 1117 as we should have video for that channel as we have had the SD version.

I watch neither anyway but just wanted to point this out.

Just wanted to note that our friend Kevin mentioned these channels are being phased out on Spectrum systems and if we switch, we lose them.

CNN international
CCTV news
Shop Zeal 1-8
Gem shopping network
CMT music
MGM HD
MavTV HD
Word Network
Sportsman Channel
Lifetime Real Women
Youtoo America
TVG
Mnet

No big losses here although I do feel MGM HD should have a place on Gold and maybe Sportsman too.

CNN International is not as relevant anymore, MAV TV HD doesn't have much, LRW should be transitioned into an OD channel and youtoo has nothing.

Charter has MavTV and Sportsman Channel on all their systems, MGM may disappear though.

Has anybody switched to a Spectrum package for TV? I've always wanted to have Boomerang, but when I look at their channel line up page, it looks like Boomerang is only available in the Gold package. I hope I'm reading that wrong. That seems ridiculous to have to have the most expensive package to be able to get what is essentially a kids channel. They also don't say anywhere what the actual cost of the package is. I only see promotional offers. I guess it's in the fine print somewhere...maybe...just not obvious...

I haven't switched yet because it sounds like when you switch you loss whole home dvr service.

Boomerang is unfortunately only in Gold. Too bad we didn't have it like Bakersfield, Birmingham and Indianapolis before the switch.

You do lose WHD if you switch. I have the WHDVR Box but not the service so I doubt they will let me keep it when I move.

Has anyone had success in using the Spectrum app? It's available on Roku and will supposedly give you access to all your subscribed channels within the home. Sure beats paying $2/mo. for a DTA that only gives limited channels, or even more for a full-fledged tuner box or DVR.

From their Facebook page, others who asked about it the official response is to use the Brighthouse app and the Spectrum app will not be available to either BHN or TWC users.

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

Looks like Charter has no current MTM's.

Here is what I formally removed from the chart.

Not surprising considering they probably had to rework contracts because of the buyout.

I wonder if we will get a notice then. If we do it'll be next week and hopefully it'll have all the new channel adds for you guys.

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

I by accident did not cut and paste that MTM list that I deleted.

Some contracts were probably re-done and our friends in Bakersfield did finally get NHL Network.

Anyway, the possibilities for the next notice and if we get one are the following.

SD Channels we already have that are available in HD.

Chiller HD
Discovery Life HD
Lifetime Real Women HD
Military History HD
TBN HD
TVG HD
youtoo HD

Potential New Channels that you need a Spectrum package for.

Africa Channel HD
AWE HD
Fusion HD
LongHorn Network HD
NHK World HD
One World Sports HD (We got this as a new Spectrum Channel in SD)


I think the two major additions we will be looking for are Chiller HD (This would complete everything for me) and Discovery Life HD.

They are the most prominent SD channels that we do not yet have in HD.

Some of the other channels in that group might not even be available or could be on the way off the system entirely.

We probably do eventually get Fusion and LongHorn Network.

I am not sure why we did not get the HD version of One World Sports with the SD version. It was also surprising that AWE was not added with it.

I doubt we get anything this month and who knows, they might not even announce it like the flood of channels we recently got.

Is HDNet currently in Spectrum's lineup? Also, is the company name Spectrum applicable only to the geo areas formerly serviced by BHN?

HDNet became AXS TV quite a few years ago.

It is on Channel 1303 and you need a Spectrum Gold Package to get it.

The Spectrum name has taken over BHN CFL and Tampa Bay systems and I believe all other ones in the footprint.

There's talk over on the DBS boards that Cloo might be shutting down at the end of the year. I haven't found anything to confirm this, but I'll keep my eyes open and if I do I'll post it here.

I would not be surprised.

The channel has moved to a combo of comedy and mystery and is still not in HD.

There really is no use for it anymore.

In addition to cloo shutting down, it sounds like another NBC/Comcast channel Esquire could be going the same route with Dish Network and U-Verse dropping it recently.

Yimitz,

Thanks so much! Not sure what this will change for FUSE as I believe everyone got it on 11/15.

Impact Network is a religious channel.

It might not have been the addition I wanted but it's nice to get stuff again.

FUSE is listed in our guide but is not yet active. Not sure why.

Yimitz,

Same with us. I think it's because you either have to switch to a Spectrum package or get Digital 1 or 2 tier.

It sucks since we once had it before the FM swap out although I would not watch it anyway.

It will be easier for me once I get out of this rental as I'll probably get the Spectrum Silver package with includes the HBO and Showtime which will eliminate the confusion.

Good lord am I behind the times. I found out we are now with Spectrum when my bill got a little too high (got nailed replacing a drain field on my Septic Grrrr). That and about 2k in car repairs all at once.

So to get back down to a decent rate I have to switch over. We shall see. I'm checking Vue also. I do have lightening 200, the CSR told me I only have 100 available but all indications are it's actually 300.

If I went Vue top tier and got 300 MB for around $100 I'd be ahead $55/month. I have 3 Rokus but would need a PS4 (and maybe a PS3). As always is the $55 worth the hassle of not having regular old Cable with DVRs etc. Investigation time. Oh, I don't watch NHL, and I do watch BTN (Go Buckeyes) so it sounds mostly safe. I always watch the Indians on the Roku anyway.

Then there is the possibility of coming back and getting the better rates too.

There are many streaming services available now, including a new one from DirecTV (no dish or commitment needed!). You would still need an antenna for locals though if you watch them, so keep that in mind. You do not need a PS3/PS4 to use Vue, just a Playstation account which is free.

Each service has pro's and con's, so research carefully and visit their Facebook pages to see what issues others may have. I gave Sling a shot and while I didn't have all of the issues that others reported having, it was far from pain-free. Sometimes trying to save money isn't worth the hassle.

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

Channel numbers may help huh?

Fuse will be on 222, the HD version will be on 1249

Impact HD will be on 1124

TV One is moving from Tier 1/Premiere to TV Select/Standard, no channel number change.

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