They will get the bugs fixed soon enough and well before The SEC Network talk heats up.

I think before any talk of new channels they need to fix the email issue. In my case, the damage has already been done but there are other folks waiting for important mail to come through and this is a serious issue. Plus it's a huge PITA moving everything over to Gmail but when I usually get over 100 email a day and have only received 20 in the past week, it's necessary.

Brighthouse/TWC have been having email issues affecting a number of users since last week. Mail has been undeliverable and unreceived, both through clients and the web. In my case, I missed two very important emails from my employer and even though I plead my case I still lost my job. Here's a couple news stories:

Holy Smokes (yes family friendly language). I can not believe that someone would take away someone's job because they did not receive email on their HOME email account, especially when it's not anything you have any control over. That's just WAY over the top. Sorry that happened to you of all people.


The bad news is that the issue is a roadrunner issue and there is nothing that BH can do, except to finally let this be the straw that breaks the proverbial camels back and gets them to trash the stupid POS system. I'd bet there will not be a quick fix here.


But of course none of that offers any help to you.....

It puzzles me that in this day and age people still use their ISP as an email provider. Gmail, Yahoo, and Hotmail (or whatever they call it now) are much easier to access from anywhere and they are infinitely more reliable. Their storage limits tend to be higher too (at least, the last time I checked.). Another advantage of not using your ISP is that if you change ISPs, you don't need to change your email address. To me, it is a no-brainer. I am curious as to everyone's reasons for using the ISP as a provider. What am I missing?

My employer required us to have an actual ISP, no Gmail, Yahoo, etc. There are still a couple sites I belong to that have that requirement also.

Totally agree...today GMail is the most efficient way to handle your mail. Yes, they scan for keywords, but it is free and syncs to every device you have. I gave up MS Outlook years ago and don't miss it all. With GMail I can read on my iPhone, iPad, PC anywhere and it is the same because cloud based means it is in sync on all devices.

In short, stop using RR email and use a cloud based system from GMail, Yahoo or Outlook Mail (formerly hotmail).

One strategy to ensure you don't miss anything from your old accounts is to forward everything to GMail, which by the way, has the best spam filters out there. So your old accounts will still get mail but you will never log onto them again since everything is now in you cloud based account!

Anyone plan on paying for EPIX when trial ends?

I have been watching some movies on EPIX during the free trial. They have some pretty recent hits available.

Is anyone planning on paying $5/m for this service after 8/31? Are the movies on EPIX exclusive to them? I have HBO/SHO/MAX etc. Is it worth getting EPIX too?

Thumbs up

I will probably pay for EPIX. $5/month for all those movies isn't a bad deal.

It's only going to be $5?

Where do you hear this?

On another note, our monthly notice likely comes this week.

I'm not really expecting anything but you never know.

I've read that on a couple sites. I do hope it true, but if not I will still probably subscribe as the movie selection is really good and even has me considering dropping Netflix.

Nayan,

I am so sorry about your job loss. That certainly doesn't seem right! If the Internet or email system goes down, it's not the customers fault.

I don't know what Brighthouse will do,

I heard that EPIX from TWC is $4.95/12 months.

After that, it is BELIEVED that the price will go up to $9.95/month.

Thanks. My supervisor was a dream to work with, my big boss not so much. He's a very black/white kind of guy so really it didn't surprise me. I've officially thrown my hat into the retirement ring though so my 9-5 days are over (or in my case, graveyard shifts) .

David, you can go to the app and sign up for a free two-week trial if you want to try it out. I did that awhile ago, that's why I got very excited when it was announced BH was adding EPIX .

Cable Card Update

One of my televisions uses a cable card. Today, I am getting an onscreen message that a cable card firmware upgrade is in process and will take 3600 seconds. At the end of the hour, it claims success, but a channel change starts the process again. Is anyone else seeing this?

George, you might have to send Gary a message and have him take a look. I don't think it's supposed to do that .

Our notice has arrived early and before Michigan AGAIN.

There are no surprises though.

MTM Changes

FearNet expires on July 30. Given the TWC-Comast merger, this might stay until it folds into Chiller. FearNet was on TWC notices so this was expected.

On or after August 4, 2014

MC: MCU (channel 403) will rebrand to MC: MC Indie

On or after August 12, 2014

It has a chart and to sum it up, all of the OTA channels will no longer be available in analog format. If you don't have a box, you need those DTA's.

Conclusion

All in all, no surprises and it's not like BHN has anything to add either.

Just look at the possibilities list in my newly updated signature.

Anyone really bummed about not getting Daystar HD, Pivot HD, Revolt HD and NHK World HD or channels that may not exist like Aspire HD or Retirement Living HD? I mean I do want Pivot but they need stuff to add in future quarters.

This quarter is all about SEC Network and believe a deal will get done before the launch in late-August.

Does this mean you will no longer be able to tune to, say 13, and News 13 will come in? I have automatic HD enabled, so it's not as big issue as it was, but I have an occasional visitor who just can't get in the habit of tuning to, say, 1013, to make sure he gets the HD feed.


We GOTTA get SEC Network. I'm sure we'll get it, but I've always been a glass half empty person & I'd rather hear something definitive from BH.

Property,

News 13 is exclusive to BHN. It's not OTA.

On SEC Network, it probably will come down to the wire but am confident we will get it.

Right, one of the broadcast channels should have been used in my example, say 5 WKMG(6), in lieu of 1060.

I figured there wasn't going to be much in the notice. I am hoping you will get your Pivot sometime before the end of the year though!

Property: They will soon be going all digital, meaning that if your TV is plugged into the wall you will receive nothing so you will need a DTA.

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

I realize that-we have 2 DTAs, an HD DVR and three converters...will you no longer be able to tune to 5 on your converter, and get 6 WKMG, etc.?

If it's the way it works here, you will see the channels as you see them now with the converter. If you don't have a coverter, you will lose locals.
