Nayan: Me too especially since they seem to be showing more movies with the movies from FearNet already starting to come over.

R-U-Q-R-U: I actually do not think it is worth having any of HBO/SHO/MAX/STARZ anymore especially with what you get on basic and digital basic.

On HBO, I do miss Real Time with Bill Maher and Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel. I would also like to see Last Week with John Oliver and some Documentaries but it's not worth $20 a month.

I have not seen any of Cinemax's new series and have no interest in Starz.

I'm leaning towards just ordering Showtime for two days durin the holidays to binge this season of Homeland. While Showtime is still an option with their Indy movies, The TMC split from the package further turns me off.

EPIX is actually a great value compared to other packages. You get nice OD and I love that Drive-In Channel.

At $5, it's also a better bargain than HD Pak $5 and the $10 soon to be FearNet-less Movie Pass when you mostly just get Encore and Plex.

I might just get EPIX after the trial.

The only Premium channel I have is HBO. It is expensive but I watch pretty much every show they have and use HBO Go to watch the ones I've never seen so to me it's worth the money. I will probably end up dropping the Movie Pass as I really don't watch it as much and with Fearnet shutting down there's no reason to keep it. I am definitely getting EPIX once the trial is over though.

I'm a 'hooker' and a knitter. I guess that makes me bi-stitchual :). Crap I say

It's notice week.

The notice will likely have SEC Network in there and word that FearNet is shutting down. It is indeed official that it all ends Thursday at midnight.

http://www.fearnet.com/videos/fearnet-farewell

The real question is if possibilities like LongHorn Network, Pac 12 Regionals or something like Pivot, Revolt or something new will be in there.

I get the paper Wednesday and Thursday and will see it at my barber's on Tuesday.

Anyone getting it Monday?

No notice today so it will be here tomorrow unless we missed it which hopefully we did not.

On the other site, The Birmingham Notice was posted and the only news from it is Jewelry TV might be off MTM's.

SEC Network was not listed but we know it's coming and they also formally announced the end of FearNet tonight.

As it stands, we might only get SEC Network this quarter. It shows how dried up those carriage deals really are.

We shall see if we get anything in the end of August notice.

I hope we didn't miss it! We have a pretty good track record when it comes to notices, so probably tomorrow.

That sucks!

They did not even allow it to show FearNet's final movies tonight.

Thumbs down

I hate it when they do that. I had planned on tuning in for the final hour after Sharknado 2 but I guess not now.

Nayan,

I was going to get Movie Pass for the final night.

It's been a long journey. I remember the VOD service, it getting dropped and then the shocking announcement that we would get the 24/7 channel.

R.I.P. Fearnet

Our notice is not much different from The Birmingham one yesterday.

The only real news............

It appears Jewelry TV and also Caracol TV are off the Month to month agreements.

This leaves only

Gol TV, NHL Network/NHL Center Ice, Outdoor Channel, Youtoo and Zap2it on the deals.


Other than that, there are some OTA channels changing frequency on or after August 19.

It only affects customers who receive programming through a digital-ready television (with a QAM tuner) and do not have a digital device. They will just have to re-scan their television sets to continuing viewing the channels.

And finally, they list the death of FearNet which happened yesterday.

I didn't think there would be much. At least the MTM list has dwindled down some more.

I remember all the FearNet drama and the cheers when it was announced we would get it. Yesterday was a sad day but not being able to see the final programming made it even worse. Let's hope Chiller goes HD quickly.

That was a damn shame about FearNet. I wonder if BHN will try to replace it On Movie Pass but I doubt it since they never do anything with the HD Pak.

The possibilities are slim from here on out and unless an HD holdout goes HD, the pickings are even slimmer than the possibilities list.

They really need to do away with the HD Pak. Four channels that really don't offer much for $6/month is a waste. At least with the Movie Pass you get a whole slew of channels for $4 more. Even EPIX is a much better value.

Encore is still on the movie pack, so it's worth it
