Interesting. 2 subchannels, while obviously not the ideal situation of a single 1080i channel, isn't actually that bad, at least in theory.

So how many subchannels is WFSB running in total? All this makes me want DirecTV, they are the only provider getting direct uncompressed feeds of the locals and compressing them themselves...

No, they are definitely not very nimble, and it makes it even worse that they are not only company operationally (region by region) or technologically (system by system). Plopping X1 on top of...

Great. Even more over-compression on WFSB-DT. :rolleyes: How many subchannels are they running now and how many will be carried after this?

They may be looking at IPTV, but it's not practical, and it's not going to be practical for a while. X1 might be able to do IPTV, but their older hardware can, even though most of it is H.264 and/or...

Yes, all currently deployed digital equipment supports SDV. They would have to make some changes on the network end, which is what TWC has done. The weak link with TWC is poor support of TAs for TiVo...

Yeah, I'm not sure about the house thing, but on the rest of it, I think you're right. He is a very, very weird person, aside from being a sick serial killer, and does really weird things.

They can't get rid of SD channels, at least not the popular ones. They have a ton of DTAs and old boxes out there that can't handle HD. Also, MPEG-4 would push them even farther down that path, as it...

The big change that all the providers are going to have to make if they want to offer 4K, 200 HD's and gigabit internet all at once is SDV combined with small nodes. It's inevitable, as there is no...

Would it be allowed since he didn't know he was being taped at the time? I think the thing they would case doubt on, however, is not whether he said those things, but what he meant. They could argue...

That's true, you do have a point there. The guy is only a gazillionaire, and he stole a $6 sandwich. Or hoagie, or whatever they call things down there in Philly.

The Weather Channel hasn't had that for a decade or more. They have had crappy reality shows on for years. When is the last time you actually watched TWC?

They would have to be cap-free, as they are a competitive carrier going in on top of cable and phone providers. The MDUs they target aren't likely to have large families living in them, but maybe a...

It wouldn't be a bad idea if TWC actually showed weather and/or content that anyone actually wanted to watch.

That's actually a good point. The price difference is down to $40 though, so it's not that big of a deal to get a 16 channel modem.



Hmmm, that's interesting. I looked on their website, and I...
