Oriolesmagic,

I agree that at least some TWC/BHN channels that Charter does not have will be on the legacy deals.

I do think Charter will pick up some of those channels as I expect at least the Indys to make it an issue to the FCC.

In the end, everything is going to fine but many will be happy with AXS.TV and HDNet Movies return.

It's not a given Charter will bring AXS.TV and HDNet Movies. They have never carried it in Alabama or in their Northeast and New England territories. Even as they got the rest of the HD channels, they still didn't get it. AWE HD is only found in Louisiana and North Carolina, and it's not carried in SD even through the rest of their footprint. AXS.TV and HDNet Movies has been on MTM for the former Insight areas that are now TWC, so it could have come to everyone through that either in HD Pass or Movie Pass.

oriolesmagic,

Good points.

My hope is they will have a push to add things right out of the gate.

What the ^&*^% with is going on with Brighthouse Orlando?

Apparently Friday BHN started hiccupping (again). We did not get get couple of programs recorded (the DVR says "channel was unavailable") and then in the evening the the signal would go away and reappear. Today 1150s were all scrambled. Nothing was on 1151 or 1152 and when we did get a video signal 11550 was being shown on 1151 and 1152. And the off/on signal scrambled the router to the point where we lost WiFi and I finally had to manually reset the Modem and router.

Hell of a way to run a Railroad!

I called in to ask if there was a problem? and was told by tech support that yes there had _been_ a problem but it was fixed. BRRRKT, wrong answer.

A BHN tech will be out Monday. I will show him the problem/error messages in the recording log. Maybe we get a fix rather then a bandaid but not holding my breath.

BHN has removed the Fox Sports out of Market RSN's from their lineup.

Edit: NHL Network is on a free preview for The Finals. I do believe it will eventually move off of Sports Pass.

Well, we still have Movie Pass On Demand but when I get a quick peek of the channel when I go to 1394, I just see Disney Family Movies and no Vutopia.

It's means it's pretty much dead.

I hope they eventually merge Movie Pass and HD Pak.

Hallmark Movies and Mystery is on both packages.

All that would change is NBC Universal, MGM and maybe Mav TV (This could go exclusively to Sports Pass) would join the Movie Pass which includes All Encores, Plexes and Flix.

For anyone that cards, forotv appears to only have launched in SD on BHN. An HD feed was supposed to launch but it appears to have gone the way of Babyfirst which did not launch in HD as scheduled with the SD channel.

There is apparently some good news though as word is that NBCU has FINALLY launched an HD channel for Chiller.

If this is indeed true (it's comes from a very credible poster on another forum), youhave to hope The MTM with NBCSN does not have any impact on BHN picking up the channel.

It would be huge to have that channel in HD and leave only Pivot and Boomerang on my wish list.

It is about time and it took them long enough to go HD! I thought with the demise of FearNet they would have done it sooner.

The User is very credible.

Legal Notices are going to be exciting again although NBCSN on a MTM could delay things here and I'm hopeful that will not be the case.

I doubt we get it in this notice and again I'm hoping The NBCSN situation does not effect things.

It has to be something either contractual or there's some sort of delay with foroTV HD. It clearly exists. Charter has had it for over a year now. BabyFirst HD may not really exist yet.

Discovery Life HD definitely exists. Antietam Cable in MD has it, Shentel Cable in the Mid-Atlantic added it with some other Discovery HD networks (American Heroes HD, OWN HD and ID HD just came to them). Vermontel in VT has added it as well.

That's great news for Chiller, now to just see some providers add it. Comcast, its corporate subsidiary, doesn't have it in any form.

BHN had this issue when Willow Cricket HD was supposed to launch. It eventually did and FORO probably will too.

BabyFirst probably is not available in HD.

Discovery Life is something that should have launched especially since The Discovery deal was renewed last year and BHN is usually good about adding stuff they already have in SD except maybe Daystar which I never watch.

Comcast is a messed up company and it's sad that they have not added to any of their systems despite owning it.

We will likely see what is in our notice sometime this week and no later than Thursday courtesy of Yimitz.

Thank you Yimitz! I don't think the HBO/Max's will stay on the MTM's very long, as it would be a huge blow for BHN to lose those.

I like The EPIX change and gives customers options.

You can still get EPIX for $5 a month.

or

You can get EPIX AND NBC Universal, MGM and Mav TV for an extra $1 at $6.

Or

you can get EPIX, Encore, Plexes and Flix for $10.

Personally, I feel HD pass should be merged into Movie Pass but this at gives customers more options.

Hallmark Movies and Mysteries moving possibly moving off Movie Pass and HD Pass will be a decent edition.

On MTM, looks like The Outdoor Channel deal was short-term or a misprint.

Gol TV and Reelz could still also be on MTM's

No Chiller HD yet but it takes a bit for new HD channels to get on systems.

We get our notice tomorrow.

It will be very similar to The Michigan notice but might have a few different things like Spanish-language channels, channel moves, etc.

One thing I'm looking forward to is when The Turner Networks officially come up which will be soon according to The TWC notices.

When that happens, it will likely clear the way for Boomerang and given how they are launching original programming and selling advertising, I cannot imagine Time Warner not renewing the deal without Boomerang on all systems.

Original Programming could also mean this channel FINALLY goes HD.
