**crickets**

It's been really quiet over here! Notices should be popping up next week .

Life is like a roller coaster. I'd rather ride in front with my skirt in my face than in the back with none of my hairs out of place. Crap I say

Well, it has to be approved first and while I don't think it's a great idea I do think this one will go through without much trouble. Charter, from what I've been reading, sucks worse than TWC as far as customer service so I am sure we'll all have a stellar experience with them if/when it goes through

I have the feeling that this one will pass through the FCC review process like greased lighting. And I don't think the DoJ will get into the mix either.

Here's a link to Charter's media presentation slide deck (PDF) re the merger/buyout:

http://ir.timewarnercable.com/files/...001_j73c9t.PDF

If nothing else, the combined coverage area map will show you Floridians just how small the BHN presence in Michigan is (we're the teeny tiny purple dot).

At least Charter has a good HD channel lineup.

We will have to see what happens but my guess is if we have it better here, they might want to upgrade their systems to match ours.

They also have apparently improved the last two years so I'm hopeful.

As long as they don't change anything internet-wise I think we'll be okay. And they have to keep Gary .

On a side-note, can you guys in Orlando or Brevard check and see if you still have Ion (channel 4 I think) on your boxes? They have completely gone from OTA (yes I scanned, probably over 100 times now!) and while their page says that Kansas City and Atlanta will have to rescan, there is nothing about us. I, along with a number of others have asked and complained via Facebook, Twitter and messaging and I have even tried calling the station itself, but no answers. I don't watch it that often, but it sucks if they decided to leave our market without saying a word.

My DVR box (beachside) has ION on Ch4 (SD) and Ch 1016 (HD).

When in doubt, do the right thing.

Email from BHN says my Sport Pass On Demand will move to Sports and Fitness On Demand on 1 June, but I didn't find any details on the BHN site about what's in the Sports and Fitness pkg.
Anyone know?

When in doubt, do the right thing.

They definitely need to keep Gary.

I think all will be fine. Just happy it's not Comcast taking over.

Sports and Fitness On Demand is on Channel 312.

Just go there and you can see.

They are consolidating a few of the OD channels next month and dropping those out of market Fox Sports RSN's which are useless. Yes Network (Owned by Fox) will remain as it actually has some value with their non-game programming.

they have a lot more HD now and digital adapters. also looks like they may have been moved from a Motorola based headend to a Cisco based headend.
