Great! It's long overdue that cable/internet companies should be classified, regulated, and scrutinized as public utilities.

I would think this affects owned and operated Univision networks, which would be in the larger Hispanic markets. Those not owned wouldn't be.

This is a showdown over Charter trying to take the contracts and carriage rates from TWC (that were negotiated with more customers and lower fees) and apply them instead of the deals made for the smaller Charter.

I think a deal may have been made because el ray isn't blocked out anymore.

No deal, just a short-term temporary restraining order:

Nothing new on the Univision networks. Hoping something is being worked out.

I have mostly been thinking about Chiller's future when it comes to tv.

We could get a hint if it is in this month's notice as an HD add.

Discovery Life HD is also a possibility.

We should get a notice within the next 1 1/2 weeks.

It would be good to still check the papers just in case as the Spectrum online page is still new.

Still, with them not doing MTM's and not a lot of HD left to add/channels shutting down, it's unlikely we will have any big updates that excite anyone anytime soon.

I just hope Chiller HD and Discovery Life HD get done so we have them out of the way.

And I sure hope Chiller does not shutdown.

I'm surprised to see they haven't updated all the markets, my brother moved to Terrehaute Indiana and got time warner spectrum. They have to a guide that looks like it haven't been updated in 10 years and is still missing a lot of hd options.

The Spectrum notices should be out soon.

In case they are slow to come on the Spectrum website, hopefully Yimitz gets his tomorrow as it would be great to have closure one way or another on Chiller.

My Spectrum bill came today. Under the heading NEWS it says
Effective on or after April 25, 2017, Chiller on Premier TV/Digi Tier 1 channel 177 and Esquire Network on Premier TV/Digi Tier 1 channels 53 and 1294 will no longer be available.

George,

Thanks for letting us know.

I suspected might be the case about Chiller given the lack of social media updates, a noticeable halt to originals and them being dropped recently by Dish Network. It is heartbreaking as we likely would have finally gotten the HD version that I have wanted for close to a decade.

I had three channels on my wish list last summer and now two of them Chiller and Pivot are going to be extinct. The only one left is Boomerang which is on a package I do not subscribe too.

This Sucks!

You have to question the commitment NBCU had to Chiller for years considering that parent company Comcast never added it.

I don't know if it's shutting down for sure yet without a formal announcement, but with 3 of the 5 largest TV providers not carrying it (Comcast, Charter, Dish), it's not a good sign. AT&T/DirecTV hasn't dropped it yet, and that's the last sign of life, I guess. And here Cox just added it in HD.

NBCU is really thinning their herd down. I really think some of the other content providers should do the same.

That sucks about Chiller . We (meaning D*) still have it but I wonder if it's going to shut down now that everyone's dropping it. I do agree about other providers thinning their programming choices, too many repeats of the same shows on different networks.

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

I definitely agreed with the decisions to scrap Cloo and Esquire but this one sucks.

Viacom is apparently doing some re-branding and they drastically need to thin their heard.

It's the start of things to come.
