I am ok and back. It sucked to lose power for 2 1/2 days though.

OM: The slow death of Chiller continues.........

George: They are still working on the system, so while it's certainly inconvenient I would give it through the weekend to see if it clears up on it's own. Glad you're safe and sound!

HDO: Glad you're okay too! This Chiller death march sucks . I have a feeling it won't be long before it's gone completely. I still have it on D* for now.

My flabber has been gasted and my gob has been smacked. Anything else?

We experienced FP&L coming by, turning the power on and then off again. They were manually resetting the fuses on the poles. After power was off again, maybe an hour, here comes a Spectrum van and FPL pickup down to the end of our cul de sac and after Spectrum was done the power was restored.

I'm glad George is ok too.

It does suck about Chiller but after it also became apparent they were not doing originals and stopped doing premiere Friday Night movies, I got over it.

The only thing that kills me is never seeing the channel 24/7 in HD.

Universal HD is still in the guide two months after it shut down.

Lots of other things need to be fixed too.

Spectrum..........

My Spectrum experience has been so-so, but I am really not impressed. I get the speed that I pay for (down), but upload isn't even close to what it should be half the time. Some of my neighbors still don't have full service restored yet. I am very glad I decided to not go back to them for my TV service.

My flabber has been gasted and my gob has been smacked. Anything else?

TWC and BHN legacy customers are losing Sportsman Channel on October 30.

I personally think it should just be merged with Outdoor Channel.

https://tvanswerman.com/2017/09/27/c...tsman-channel/

Good to continue to thin the heard.

What's not 100% clear to me is that the legacy Charter markets still have the channel in HD currently. Does this include them losing it as well?

Sportsman Channel is now owned by the people who own Outdoor Channel, who also now own World Fishing Network. I would guess all 3 will be on there whenever the carriage agreement comes up.

So true......they haven't updated the guide to reflect CENTRIC rebranding to BET/HER, and SPROUT changing to Universal Kids. Also the English Soccer channels 1831-1835 are still on the guide even though NBCSports has moved those games to its streaming service

We currently have it but it sounds like it will be gone.

It will be interesting to see what happens with WFN.

And they have not changed One World Sports to Eleven Sports on 834 and the channel also has no logo in the guide.

It's pathetic.

Legacy Charter is currently scheduled to lose Sportsman Channel as well on October 30. They had posted this before, and an agreement was struck, so I'm not 100% certain it will go away.

So it looks like they've changed the CCI flag for SUNHD, OLYCH, QVC2HD, HILL, and FSFLHD to Copy Never, which is usually only used for PPV and VOD. Meaning if you're using a Tivo, good luck recording anything (like Lightning games). And if you're using Kodi and an HDHomerun prime like me, you're forced to use the fox soprts go addon to watch the Lightning games.

They need to update the damn guide.

Universal HD shut down three months ago this week and it is still there.

Many channel logos and names also need updates.

Very frustrating..........

On another note, Chiller might officially be done next month. I'm over it with original programming having stopped but it still does hurt never have seen the 24/7 HD version.

I saw this from spectrum on Facebook. Spectrum is currently working with Viacom to reach an agreement that is fair for everyone. We ask for your patience as we work to resolve this issue on your behalf.

I'd hate to lose Spike (Paramount) but have no need for anything else.

I hope that as part of the deal, a good chunk of those channels come off our system.

The heard needs to be thinned.

I hope a deal is reached soon because the contract expires tonight and if no is reached the channels will be dropped. I hope they can at least get a temporary deal to avoid losing the channels until a long term deal is made.

For me, I'd just hate to lose Spike (Soon-to-be Paramount) for Cops and I want a bunch of the unnecessary Viacom channels to be dropped.

I saw that one when I turned on Spike for "Cops" this morning.

Just hoping a new deal means we lose a good chunk of the unnecessary Viacom Channels.

When Chiller shuts down, NBC/Comcast will have a net cutdown of 3 channels with Cloo, Esquire and Universal HD shutdown along with the addition of The Olympic Channel.

Charter and Viacom have struck a new deal.

http://deadline.com/2017/10/viacom-c...ct-1202190257/

We will have to see if some channels are dropped as a result. Viacom really needs to come back as so many of their channels are unecessary.
