This is great news and I think BHN customers can expect to get TV Land HD and MTV 2 HD this summer. We might even get those other MTV SD channels. It gives some hope for our next notice which looked to be bone dry. Hopefully, it also includes some HD On Demand from other Viacom channels besides Spike.
An addition note, the fact that Logo HD and Centric HD are not included proves Dish Network is doing those themselves in some way.
On a final note, let's hope the Starz deal is the next one to get renewed so we all get access to more HD Encore, Starz and IndiePlex/RetroPlex.
You are da man Kevin.

A nice bit of breaking news today…Viacom and Time Warner Cable have agreed to resolve their pending disputes. And that’s very good news for consumers.
Time Warner Cable subscribers will be able to enjoy Viacom programming – from MTV’s Jersey Shore to Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and more – through TWC TVTM, Time Warner Cable’s in-home streaming app for tablet devices. In addition, Time Warner Cable subscribers will get even more on-air channels from Viacom, including MTV Hits, MTV Jams and Centric, and subscribers in many major markets such as New York City will gain access to TV Land HD and MTV2 HD, as well.
Here’s the joint statement:
Viacom and Time Warner Cable have agreed to resolve their pending litigations. All of Viacom’s programming will now be available to Time Warner Cable subscribers for in-home viewing via internet protocol-enabled devices such as iPads and Time Warner Cable will continue to carry Viacom’s Country Music Television (CMT) programming. In reaching the settlement agreement, Time Warner Cable and Viacom were also able to resolve other unrelated business matters to their mutual satisfaction. Neither side is conceding its original legal position or will have further comment.
Viacom programming will be rolled out on TWC TVTM over the next several weeks.
