It looks like the Charter buyout may be a done deal:

The deal is contingent on Comcast Corp.'s acquisition of Time Warner Cable receiving approval from U.S. regulators, Reuters reports.

Right. The companies are all in agreement. It is in the government's hands to approve the TWC/Comcast merger.

We will see what happens with the Comcast-TWC merger. That one is far from a done deal. If that one gets done though, this Charter deal will definitely happen.

It will be interesting to see how everything plays out and the changes that could come with the potential change.

dotsdavid: Gary posted a schedule elsewhere.

We also have free WFN (1158) for a month and next weekend, we have an HBO Free Preview.

ohh and the on or after date for NBC Universo HD is a week from today.

I have been looking at the free preview of Starz on Demand from Tampa on a non-HD channel # 270. Every thing on that channel is in SD , but the 3D movies are in HD and OAR. I do not understand it. Any one with a 3D TV also notice this ?

We have Starz HD On Demand here in Orlando but the channel is in the SD area.

The Free Preview was ok but did not watch much as nothing really interested me.

You mean The Turner Networks?

If so, that could mean a few things for us.

1) A quick drop dead date which will lead to a quick renewal.

2) When a deal is done, we will finally get HD OD and the apps for The Turner Networks. That is sorely lacking.

3) It could lead to all systems getting Boomerang.

That could also mean filling in HBO/Cinemax HD holes for various systems throughout TWC/BHN.

Interesting............

This could mean they are adding it in areas without it. This might make it wide on the chart.

Hopefully, this also means we will get those spanish-language channels Bakersfield got a few months ago as it would be nice to have a universal lineup.

Pivot, Reelz and the HBO/Cinemax feeds are all on the newest 4/15 TWC notices as month-to-month.

It seems that Foro TV is rolling out to more markets (SD only, but an HD feed exists. Charter has it), and Estrella TV HD is being added in HD in NYC and San Diego at the very least.

Estrella HD is already available in Dallas and LA on TWC.

Estrella SD (satellite feed) is being launched national on TWC's digital preferred tier in areas with large Hispanic populations such as Texas, Kansas City from what I have seen outside of the areas where you have mentioned.

TWC is moving Movies! to expanded basic in areas where Fox owned stations carry it and TWC carriers it as well via the local Fox OTA channel (don't know how this is possible unless subchannels are not required to be in the broadcast tier)

TWC is removing In Demand PPV 3-6 in Gunnison and Telluride in July as these systems are launching VOD this month.

some QAM realignments are happening in various systems.

Oriolesmagic: That's awesome about Pivot. We do not know if the Comcast-TWC merger will go through but if not, BHN might stay on TWC's deals at least for a little longerand a new Pivot deal could lead to us getting it.

It's all about how the merger goes and then there is the Charter one looming who could acquire TWC if The Comcast-TWC gets turned down by the FCC.

Kevin and OM: It would be nice if more of those subchannels (Especially THIS!) got HD versions and moved back to the HD section.

On the merger front...

As you get older three things happen. The first is your memory goes, and I can’t remember the other two. Crap I say

The one bad thing about Charter is they have data caps and if BHN were to be bought by them then we would have that to look forward to. I use A LOT of data, between streaming, downloading and gaming, so caps in all honesty would actually make me seriously think about moving out of the area and where there's a provider that doesn't have them. Since it's looking like the merger will be blocked, we won't have to worry about it now but it's always a good idea to keep an eye on the news for these types of things.

I see BHN also added a $2 broadcast fee. Good thing I left .

Cell phone carriers already have data caps which I hate because they charge you when you go over

Maya: The cable model is going to eventually break up. Some conglomerates have already announced they will offer their suite of channels online.

The Sports programming is what really is insane though.

Nayan: I've always thought they would not approve the merger.

If they turn it down, it also increases the ammunition that they would then turn down a Charter one as I do not want data caps.

It would be nice to stay with TWC as I do like the equipment for the most part and the channel lineup.
