DrDon,

That is very interesting.

When I move out of the room I'm renting, I wonder if they will let me bring my DVR with me.

If not, it's only going to lead to further explore my options.

News 13 is OWNED by Spectrum and will not be made available to any other cable provider.

Usually when there's providers getting purchased like this, there's a preservation of whatever was intact. Spectrum has blown that out of the water.

It really shows a strength of Comcast now, after dealing with so much of this through the years, launching the X1 platform and increasingly standardizing the lineup throughout their footprint. Hopefully Spectrum can get there someday without running all their existing customers away.

There's the issues with different programming packages, the melding of the channels from Charter and the channels from TWC/BHN, the lack of Whole Home equipment, and the fact they're disposing of the DTAs and forcing everyone into boxes, which also adds to the equipment expenses, since DTAs are substantially cheaper and not everyone needs or wants DVR capability, as well as HD or premium and On Demand content.

I think most of the TWC footprint is getting or has received Hillsong Channel in HD, although I don't see it for the legacy Charter areas yet, from what I'm seeing so far. If someone has any of that information on that, let me know. I basically need someone in every TWC/BHN/Charter market to just go through the guide and tell me what's there in HD, because they're making it nearly impossible to find accurate information on it for the chart.

Speaking of Hillsong Channel, the guide on my TV has been updating over the last 24 hours little by little.

The channel is now only on 234 and no longer on 1114.

My feeling is they might re-do the channel numbers or not the channels in groups like Bright House did.

Anyone else notice the update they pushed out last night? Major annoyance when playing back recordings. There is now approximately a 10 second delay after selecting the recording from the list before it displays the summary of the show which also has a new layout. I can't believe this was released.

They have been doing little by little the last 24-48 hours.

Not really digging it.

Then it maybe needs to be renamed Sprectrum News Channel and other providers not in all parts of Central Florida and maybe needs to be a must carry Channel. OTA to. Sprectumsportskc is owned by Sprectrum and is on other providers in KC area like Comcast but not like CCI,Google Fiber,Mediacom yet.

It will not, nor ever be, available on other systems. Period.

I'm sure if any other systems WANTED it, Spectrum would gladly make them a deal. $$$

It appears the ESPN College Sports Extra channels have been added on 1791-1798.

I'm assuming they are in HD as they are in the HD section.

The only HD channels not in the HD section are Impact, Hillsong and I think some PBS channels (I'll have to double check on this sometime).

We seem to be getting new stuff at around the same time as old Charter and TWC systems.

However, according to the big chart run on the programming forum, a few things wide that we do not have are HSN2 HD and Eleven Sports HD (Formerly One World Sports as it's still listed like that in the guide with a Spectrum logo). We have both in SD though.

Neither channel is really worth having.

Like I've said, there is not a lot to add now but the target list should be........

Game 10-14 HD (MLB Extra Innings and NHL Center Ice)
Team 10 HD (NBA League Pass and MLS Direct Kick)
Epix Drive In HD
Flix HD
Showtime Family Zone HD
Discovery Life HD
