Ah I get what you mean property. I don't think those are going away just yet. I think that was more for those who still have Limited Basic and plug directly into their TV's without a box.

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.
The Michigan notice has no surprises either. Other that what you've got, our Fox Sports 2 SD/HD is moving from channels 556/656 to 167/367 on or after August 1st. Due to geography, my urgency re any SEC deal is a tad lower than you guys.

The only reason I care about getting the sec network is the fact the Disney owns espn. Which mean with a deal to get the sec means we may get access the watch Disney apps.

Thank you Yimitz! SEC is not on my priority list either
HDOrlando's Avatar HDOrlando 12:55 PM 06-26-2014
Thanks Yimitz!

I would like SEC Network but am confident a deal will be done so I'm not worried.

Hello. If something's been posted on this, I apologize. I have looked back several pages and haven't seen anything and I've even done a Google search on this matter, but I can't find any real answers. There's still the pending merger of Comcast and Time Warner out there. If this happens will there be any effect on Bright House customers?
Nayan's Avatar Nayan 05:11 PM 06-27-2014
Welcome Frank! As to your question, honestly no one knows yet. Time Warner usually helps Brighthouse secure deals as far as programming goes and they do use some of their technology but Brighthouse is a separate company on paper. It's a waiting game right now.
HDOrlando's Avatar HDOrlando 02:57 AM 06-28-2014
Some Comcast notices are saying FearNet is ceasing operations in July.

This could very well be the case as I've seen some movies I saw in The Fearnet guide on Chiller's.

Hopefully, they will use FearNet's HD feed to create one for Chiller.
Nayan's Avatar Nayan 06:25 AM 06-28-2014
Maybe you'll get Chiller HD sooner than expected .
dotsdavid's Avatar dotsdavid 09:39 AM 06-28-2014
Indy added a buch of Spanish channels. Like nicktoons, tr3s, boomerang, Cartoon Network, sorpresa, and canal 24 horas.
HDOrlando's Avatar HDOrlando 04:08 PM 06-28-2014
dotsdavid,

Those will probably be in the cards for us too as Indy and Michigan usually gets them first. I did not see it in any of your notices

Do you guys already have the English version of Boomerang?

Nayan: I'm really hoping Chiller HD comes soon.
dotsdavid's Avatar dotsdavid 04:49 PM 06-28-2014
It was never in the notices, they just showed. And we do have boomerang in English, we had that for a long time
HDOrlando's Avatar HDOrlando 07:33 PM 06-28-2014
dotsdavid,

They will probably pop up for us too within the next few days.

It would be weird if they gave us Boomerang in En Espanol and not English.

Some have wanted Boomerang here for a while. I bet it finally comes for us the next time the Turner deal is up.
kevin120's Avatar kevin120 12:16 AM 06-29-2014
hmm nothing new from the notices lately but Dallas was scheduled to get the new National Channel Lineup on August 4th but it has been delayed temporarily while they get Southern California back on track finishing the new lineups rolled out.
HDOrlando's Avatar HDOrlando 01:20 AM 06-29-2014
Kevin,

The possibilities list is starting to dry up. The next big one will be SEC Network.

My life would be complete if we got Boomerang! Of course, my kids have now outgrown cartoon channels... LOL! I would still definitely watch.

hmm still have a lot of possibilities for my area and considering the TWC/Comcast merger (Marriage) isn't moving along very fast TWC may keep adding channels to systems just to stay current they may start going back and adding things like MTV2 HD, BBC America HD to areas that are missing them? hmm
the only real changes that I know of area: PAC12 regionals in SD being added and QVC HD being added likely when the new lineup happens.
HDOrlando's Avatar HDOrlando 05:40 AM 07-01-2014
Comcast is apparently adding SEC Network so TWC/BHN and Direct TV are the last two big holdouts.

I do think a deal gets done before launch though.

Kevin: Your area does have a little catching up to do.

hmm yeah we do have some catching up to do but we are missing just odds and ends channels in HD honestly we have every premium channels East Coast in HD except:
Starz Comedy HD
Starz in Black HD
Starz Cinema HD
Encore Action HD
Encore Drama HD
Encore Black HD
Encore Classic HD
(4 Cinemax optional feeds for providers in HD (MovieMax HD, etc.)

also we pretty much have all of the SD versions of most channels lol :P

mainly they have improved the international offerings this year here:
TVB1
TVB2
TVBe
TVBS
TVBV
SBTN
NDTV 24x7
Willow Cricket SD
UTV Movies
ITV Gold
CCTV4
Set Asia
Filmy

all added at then of 2013 or early 2014.

I think TWC is probably mainly focusing on the NCL right now before major channel adds but SEC network will likely included there is likely a deadline for TWC to reup the Disney Channels soon but they might have extended the contract as we now have Disney HD On Demand content on:
Disney XD
Disney Channel SVOD
Disney Channel
Disney Jr.
ABC Family
ESPN
ESPN Deportes

also Nayan your friend in Greenville TX must be on a 860MHz system because the amps are new 1GHz Cisco Gainmaker and the nodes are 1GHz Aurora networks nodes. I was there last week in Greenville and from the looks of it all of the amps have been upgraded
Nayan's Avatar Nayan 08:00 AM 07-02-2014
Upgrades are always good Kevin . As long as my friend is happy with his service (which he is) that makes me happy, as I don't have to hear about if he's not .

HDO: I'm pretty sure we'll get the SEC. It's not on my must-have list but I'm sure there are plenty of folks who want this.

Just got a letter from BH saying effective Sept 1, The Movie Channel will no longer be included as part of my Showtime subscription, but I can have it for only $14 per month.

Now the really big price increases begin. Forget about the nickel and dime stuff, they are going big time. I suppose the next letter will say Cinemax will no longer be included with my HBO subscription.

I have been a subscriber to TWC and then Bright House at this address since 1988. So much for loyalty!

WHAT!?! Really?? Ugh. Actually (and I hate to say this) Cinemax has been separate from HBO for awhile now, so if you still get it as a package consider yourself lucky. That's sucks though, as I was planning on adding all of the movie packages and dumping Netflix but now it sounds like it's really cost-prohibitive .

You would think they would GIVE us EPIX as a replacement!

I got same notice. The Movie Channel is the one I watch the least. So I will be saying goodbye myself.

Not paying $14/month.
raymac's Avatar raymac 07:14 AM 07-03-2014
I will be dropping TMC also.
the64gto's Avatar the64gto 12:37 PM 07-03-2014
I like TMC, but will drop it also. Showtime should have a reduced fee now, since BHN values TMC @ $14.

HDOrlando's Avatar HDOrlando 03:24 AM 07-06-2014
That sucks about TMC as I was going to order Showtime for "Homeland" this fall.

I do not think it's worth $14 a month though.

I'm not sure what they are going to charge for EPIX but given what we get on network tv now, were better off just getting netflix rather than a premium service although I will get Sports Pass For NFL Redzone this fall.

I'll probably just binge "Homeland" On Christmas Eve or something.

On another note, were getting close to one month until SEC Network launches. I expect a deal but it will be interesting to see if there is a backup update in next month's notice.

EPIX: What's anyone's best guess on what this is going to cost. On average, using the free preview, using remote DVR manager, I'm recording about 1 movie a week, plus/minus.
