And perhaps that's the only response you're due.

We'll just have to wait and see what happens. We just don't know what the holdup is and speculating about reasons is pointless and futile.

I doubt that anyone here has the official word on WGN America. It could also be due to technical reasons instead.

We do know that negotiations to launch WGN America in the rest of L.A. were...

Looks like its time for you to switch to someone who you might think treats you better, like Dish Network or DirecTV. Too bad the satellite provider's internet service sucks though.

Sorry you feel so betrayed by TWC. I think you may (rather than shall) be a bit more "noisy" than some others about your olfactory prowess. It may not (not shall not) be a negotiation glitch with TWC...

It was Motorola and Cisco that designed their tuning adapters. See all the connectors needed? Two coax, a USB, DIAG, and the power. Takes a lot of room.

At least the Moto is smaller than Cisco's!...

HBO Now is not live HBO. So pay TV operators still have an advantage

What you won’t be watching: Anything live. HBO Now is a pure on-demand service, and won’t carry a live feed of HBO’s cable programming. That also means you won’t be able to tune in live to any of...

Recheck the notice, it says "on or around February 27, 2015." I suggest we're still in the "around" period.

Check again on Monday.

We got the notice in 90272 that Standard Cable channels will finally be encrypted in December and that a STB or DTA would be required for all channels. Clear QAM is now dead.

It appears to be all the same assets that TWC has via cable. No local stuff, like delayed local news. But I don't have a cable box to compare.

Of course no look-back or start over. But that's what...
