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.

Internet prices are insane! I know I won't be going faster anytime soon.

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

NHL Network is still on Sports Pass here. We might see some news in next week's notice.

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.
