Oriolesmagic: I did not know that about the data caps going away. Thanks for letting us know.

The CEO definitely turned things around. I remember when they had hardly any HD.

Maya: More options is always good but getting your lawn cut up sucks.

Verizon FIOS to let you pick and choose cable channels
I saw a commercial for this last night out of the Tampa market... $79.95 a month? And that may have been a starting price..... I was watching off the antenna, so no DVR to go back and look.....

This was posted over on HOTP, but ESPN is not very happy with Verizon's new packages right now. Yeah, almost $70/month to start though and not such a great deal imo:

Here in Socal (starting from yesterday or so), I am able to view the NHL Network on Time Warner even though I subscribe to Variety. Wonder if I am getting a Free Preview, or did rumored move from the Sports to Variety Tier finally happen?

Damn it!

2 minutes left in The Spurs-Clippers Game and they are doing a box update.

Wacky: I expect this to be the case with NHL Network on both TWC and BHN systems.

The $70 includes 25 Mbit internet so maybe its not sooooo bad.

It's a good time for the move for nhl network because of the nhl playoffs, while it's also a good time for a preview. I hope it moved to lower package

Things keep sounding ore bleak about the Comcast-TWC merger.

I never thought it would be approved and now it seems really unlikely.

If it is not approved, we will have to see if TWC takes Bright House for themselves and/or Charter just buys Time Warner Cable and still gets Bright House.

It would be a bad deal all around if that merger went through, especially since Comcast owns quite a number of channels. It would certainly let them ask for the moon when renewal time came up, meaning higher prices for consumers or loss of channels if providers told them to take a hike, neither of which is a good scenario. When (not if) it falls through, we'll have to see what happens between Charter/TWC/BHN.

No surprise and this is wonderful.

Now, the question is if TWC will exercise their right of first refusal to buy Bright House or if they will let it go to Charter.

If they choose to keep Bright House, does Charter then come after TWC again.

The drama will continue.

We get our Legal Notice either tomorrow or Thursday.

Discovery Life HD could be in play as it appears to be available.

Daystar HD could also be in play.

It will also be interesting as always to see the MTM's.

Nayan,

The Florida Today prints the notices online or do you mean taking a pic with your phone?

Either way, it's appreciated since your no longer a BHN customer.

The Orlando Sentinel sadly does not print these online. If only BHN would put these on they're website like all of the other companies.

My subscription is digital, meaning I get the full paper exactly as it is in print form, including comics, ads and everything else. I did see the notice last month, so I figured I would give it a shot and see if I could get it for y'all this month .

Everyone,

The Indianapolis notice is up on the IndyStar website.

Here is a breakdown of everything.

MTM's: Reelz and youtoo. This means the Time Warner and/or Turner Networks are not on our MTM's yet. Zap2it will probably still be on ours.

News: They formally let us know DOD News (formerly The Pentagon Channel) shut down On April 17

On Demand Channel Consolidation: After May 31st, Smithsonian On Demand will fold into Natural and Knowledge On Demand

Sports Pass On Demand and Pro Sports On Demand will fold into Sports and Fitness On Demand

On or around May 31: Bright House Networks may cease carriage of Movie Pass On Demand.

They note that Disney Family Movies On Demand will still be available through Disney Family Movies On Demand

No word on where the other Movie Pass Stuff like Vutopia would go.

Out of Market Fox Sports RSN's going away: They are scrapping Indiana's out of market Fox Sports channels on or June 9.

They and likely everyone else are going to lose the out of market Fox Sports Channels. Indiana will lose FS Detroit, FS Florida, FS West and FS Wisconsin.

We probably will lose ours which are Detroit, Wisconsin, SportSouth and Prime Ticket.

Please note these channels have never really been much value unlike some other out of market RSN's like YES Network, NESN and the TWC Lakers and Dodgers channels. They have no games, think they dropped the post and pre game shows and hardly any local pro sports team programming. They will not be missed.

Channel Addition: On or after June 16, FOROtv HD for Nuestros Canales


http://classifieds.indystar.com/cate...bright%20house

NOTICE TO BRIGHT HOUSE NETWORKS CUSTOMERS This notice is to inform our Bright House Networks customers of upcoming changes to their cable programming lineup.

Therefore, please be advised that our agreements with REELZ and Youtoo remain in effect on a month-to-month basis, but we may have to cease carriage in all formats if our authority to continue is withheld. We are working diligently at this time to come to acceptable and fair terms with all of these channels.

Bright House Networks may cease carriage of Sports Pass On Demand (channels 501/1501), Pro Sports On Demand (channel 414), and Smithsonian On Demand (channels 1167/1620) on or around May 31, 2015. After May 31, 2015 Smithsonian On Demand content will be found on Nature and Knowledge On Demand (channels 165/1165). Sports Pass and Pro Sports On Demand content will be found on Sports and Fitness on Demand (channels 415/1415). Bright House Networks may cease carriage of Movie Pass On Demand (channels 636/1636) on or around May 31, 2015.

SDV is a robust bandwidth management system that makes it possible to offer more digital video programming services than before including new HD channels. To be able to offer more new video services, Bright House Networks will be moving some existing programming services to the new SDV system as well as adding new services on the SDV system. On or after June 16, 2015, the following services will be added to the SDV system: FOROtv Nuestros Canales channel 822 FOROtv HD Nuestros Canales channel 1822 These services will not be available on uni-directional retail devices as of the date(s) noted above.

Customers may continue to use their uni-directional retail device and CableCARD to receive video programming other than the programming delivered on the SDV system. Customers who also utilize a digital set-top box or tuning adaptor will be able to receive video programming delivered on the SDV system. Customers will be notified in advance of any other programming changes.

Here is the Orlando notice and it's pretty much the same as the Indianapolis one.

Here is a breakdown of everything.

MTM's: Reelz, youtoo and zap2it.

News: They formally let us know DOD News (formerly The Pentagon Channel) shut down On April 17

On Demand Channel Consolidation:

After May 31st,

- Smithsonian On Demand will fold into Natural and Knowledge On Demand (Channel 301)

- Sports Pass On Demand and Pro Sports On Demand will fold into Sports and Fitness On Demand (Channels 312/1185).

On or around May 31:

Bright House Networks may cease carriage of Movie Pass On Demand (Channel 1394)

They note that Disney Family Movies On Demand will still be available through Disney Family Movies On Demand (Channel 89)

No word on where the other Movie Pass Stuff like Vutopia would go.

Out of Market Fox Sports RSN's going away:

They are scrapping the out of market Fox Sports channels on or June 9.

Orlando will lose the following channels

Fox Sports Detroit (189 SD/1175 HD)
Fox Sports Wisconsin (190 SD/1176 HD)
SportSouth (191 SD/1177 HD)
Fox Sports Prime Ticket (192 SD/1178 HD)



Please note these channels have never really been much value unlike some other out of market RSN's like YES Network, NESN and the TWC Lakers and Dodgers channels. They have no games, think they dropped the post and pre game shows and hardly any local pro sports team programming like those documentaries we get locally like they're versions of "Inside The Magic". They will not be missed and BHN is making the right move to dump them.

On a final note, they never did give us FS Ohio (1174 HD) which you can still see a test screen for when you do "The Trick".

Channel Addition:

On or after June 16,

FOROtv SD/HD
(Channels 941 SD/1941 HD) will be added for Nuestros Canales Customers.

Nice!

Nayan is back even though she no longer has BHN.

If you are going to keep getting the paper, I no longer have to type the summaries.

However, it's not like the old days when we we're getting loads of HD channels.

These days we just do not want to miss anything like MTM changes and small stuff like the Out o Market Fox Sports RSN's going away.

If anyone has looked at my chart in the last week, you will have noticed how I've grouped the channels we have in SD but not available in HD.

SD Channels That Bright House Has That Are Not Available In HD

ABC/Disney

ESPN Classic (Becoming On Demand Channel)

NBC/Comcast

Chiller
Cloo
CNBC World


Turner

Boomerang (We don't have this)
CNN International

A&E Networks

Lifetime RealWoman
Military History Channel


Viacom

Centric
LOGO
MTV Hits
MTV Jams
MTV Tr3s
TeenNick
VH1 Classic

Fox

Fox College Sports

Other

WAPA America
You Too TV
Word Network
Jewish Life TV
Retirement Living TV
TVG Network
Gem TV
Shop Zeal 1-8
HSN2 (Announced but has not materlized)

Note: Aspire HD and DayStar HD are listed in another section as they apparently are available.

Discovery Life HD, Flix HD and Showtime Family Zone HD are rumored to be available and not included.

It shows how dim the options are to add stuff if you do not include new channels.

Before I forget...

It was posted over in HOTP, but H2 will be changing to Vice, which I doubt I'll watch:

Nayan: That sucks but am also interested in seeing what happens with this Vice Channel. I bet they move some H2 stuff to Military History and re-brand the channel.

Military History and Lifetime Real Women are the only two english-language channels not yet in HD and maybe something happens with the first. The later should be scrapped and the content moved online.

Yimitz: Thanks as always!
