HDO: I don't foresee anything being added this month. It's pretty dry out there The only news of late is Hub will become Discovery Family Channel on October 13th with a slight programming change.

Maya: It seems to be channel issues. I changed both my TV and box like Jack said, but it's still happening on a couple of them. I guess we'll have to suffer with being blasted/yelled at .

Gator: I expressed my displeasure with no PIP over there already. Huge dealbreaker for me, especially with so many sports going on at the same time!

Yimitz: Thanks so much!

Nayan: There is really nothing on the carriage deals to add. It's good to keep up though.

The sucks on The HUB as I liked that name.

Me too HD . At least they are keeping most all of the core programming.

Thank you Yimitz for the update! I still wish they'd get a deal done for the NHL, but as long as they play nice and we're still able to view it I'm happy.

The Birmingham notice had Video Rola HD in their notice.

It's a Nuestros Canales Channel. So, we get something I guess and Spanish Language and International channels are likely the new norm until an HD holdouts goes HD.

And TVGN's changing their name to POP so we won't confuse the with the horse channel anymore

Nothing new in our notice.

Same channels on MTM's and The Starz Free Preview was mentioned.

While Video Rola HD was not, I still expect it in November.

Unless Pivot is added or Chiller finally decides to go HD, there is nothing to get excited about these days.

I think it'll be pretty quiet around here. Makes me sad as we're usually a lively group full of chatter, but we've got pretty much everything there is to be had aside from the channels that aren't in HD and a few niche ones. I am still hopeful you will get your Pivot before the end of the year though .

Very true.

It's the bad side of having so much I guess.

It would be nice if Pivot came but I remember there was a time when there were three channels that were out of reach for years and even decades before they got added.

Remember the days when we did not have Sports Channel (now-FS Florida), GSN and NFL Network?

The dominos fell.

We got FS Florida New Year's Day in 2009, we then got GSN and were actually one of the first to get it in HD and just two years ago, we finally got NFL Network.

Those days were fun and it was like getting cable again when the new HD channels would come and then the huge flood of them came in that fall of 2009. It was so much fun.

Now, were all spoiled and all of us have maybe 1-2 minor channels we want to round out our lineups.

To get some conversation started, everyone please post your remaining HD Wish List.

Mine.

1) Pivot HD
2) Chiller HD (Not available yet)
3) EPIX Drive-IN HD (Not available Yet)

I'd be happy if Chiller and Military History went HD. Of course I'd like to have AXS and HDNet Movies back too but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

NHL Center Ice - Free Preview!

Looks like once again, NHL Center Ice will offer a free preview of their package 8-25 Oct. Most likely beginning on CHs 537 & 1810.

When in doubt, do the right thing.

With Fusion being integrated into so many deals with smaller companies through the NCTC and it coming to DirecTV, I'm really surprised it hasn't turned up on TWC and BHN yet. I would think it's probably the most likely addition right now for English programming.

Sgooter: Another sign a new deal is likely or at the very least, neither NHL Center Ice or NHL Network will be pulled this year.

oriolesmagic: I think they might be waiting until their ABC/ESPN deal is up again. The merger could also be a factor here.

Hopefully, TWC gets a new deal done with the NHL Network soon. I am getting impatient not knowing whether the channel is coming to the Variety Tier here in TWC Southern California or not.

WackyPacks,

If they have a drop-dead date, it will be before the season starts with NHL Network moving off of Sports pass within a few months.

I expect a new deal to be announced soon.

HDOrlando, the SEC Network launch prompted the additions of ESPN Goal Line/Buzzer Beater and Fusion for a lot of smaller companies. Fusion was part of that deal to get SEC Network.

It's been almost exactly a week since we have had a post in this thread.

We will get our notice in about two weeks although the possibilities are likely bleak.

Has anyone seen anything on a new NHL Network deal or the TWC-Comcast Merger proceedings?

Nothing about NHL, but I have seen that TWC-Comcast are still trying to convince folks that's it's a really good idea to merge .

I was on vacation last week in the Keys and they are serviced by Comcast. Actually a little bit better PQ than BHN, which surprised me as hotel TV isn't usually known for quality .

The Time Warner notice here in Socal still has the NHL Network & Center Ice listed as month-to-month. The mention of the NHL Network moving to Variety is gone though. On the other hand, the original date listed for the move was October 1 which was 2 weeks ago. So, maybe that part was removed because the date passed already. To me, it appears that the parties are not in agreement on whether there will be a move or not.

It looks like HBO will be offering a non-cable subscription service starting next year. Very interesting... I wonder what the pricing scheme will look like.

If it is enticing enough, I might go that route and drop cable.

Also of note to cord-cutters, CBS today launched All Access, a $5.99/month service offering streaming from it's 14 channels that it owns plus VOD of thousands of programs, including current ones: http://deadline.com/2014/10/cbs-laun...ervice-852895/

You would see a mass exodus if that were to happen. Sports are really the only reason I keep cable, but with the announcement of HBO as a stand-alone and other ways to get the shows I do watch (legally!) the idea of cutting the cord is getting more attractive every day.

I'm sure a deal with NHL Network will be announced soon.

It looks like we will get a la carte but via Conglomerate.

I still do like the TV and Internet bundle though but the future is coming.

I can't remember where I read it, maybe WSJ, but it said that while a la cart could be a good thing it could also end up costing consumers more in the long run due to higher broadband costs and subscriptions, making the cable bundle seem like a bargain.

That is also possible.
