On a related note, our next notice comes out by next Thursday.
Since this notice is the first one for the 3rd quarter (July-September) announcements since BHN announces stuff a month ahead of time, it gives us a shot for HD since we usually get at least a few each quarter.
Here's what we have gotten so far this year.
First Quarter (January-March)
Weather Channel HD
C-SPAN 2 HD
C-SPAN 3 HD
Showtime Women East HD
Showtime Beyond East HD
Showtime Next East HD
ThrillerMax East HD
WMAX East HD
@Max East HD
5StarMAX East HD
OuterMAX East HD
3-D Events 2
Disney Jr. HD
Second Quarter (April-June)
MLB Strike Zone HD
Fuel HD (June 6)
NASA HD (June 6)
The first quarter was overloaded a bit with those HD Showtime and Cinemax channels that were delayed from last June along with finally getting the Weather Channel HD after that three-year month to month deal that prevented the addition of the channel. The 3-D Events 2 was actually hidden in the guide before being put in their full time.
Even if you take those out, All BHN systems outside of the Panhandle got 5 HD Channels.
C-Span 2 HD, C-Span 3 HD, Hustler HD, Disney JR. HD and NESN HD.
In the second quarter in which we currently in, we have gotten MLB Strike Zone HD and will get FUEL HD along with NASA HD on June 6.
Taking out the overloaded 1st quarter, both quarters were kind of on par. The customers of Direct TV, Dish Network and Verizon FIOS would go crazy for 8 HD channels over two quarters.
In the quarter, we are likely going to have a similar sized update.
We are already getting The Pac-12 Network HD in August upon launch per a deal BHN made with them a little under a year ago.
My feeling though is we will get something else as well.
While it is possible that NFL Network/RedZone gets done this quarter, that will be put on the system almost immediately when a deal is struck.
AXS. TV/HDNet Movies could possibly get done too (We would hear about that in the press but get announcement in a notice) and a new deal with Starz could be reached that could lead to an announcement of more HD Starz/Encore/IndiePlex/RetroPlex.
The above is possible but based on the carriage deals, my gut says were looking at a likely addition of TV Land HD and MTV 2 HD this quarter.
After that, there are 5 channels outside of Fox Sports RSN's and those west coast premiums that are on other TWC systems that we have in SD but not HD
HSN HD, Jewelry TV HD, QVC HD, Sundance HD and TV Japan HD.
My guess is they are waiting for a time when they do not have anything to add for the quarter to give us Sundance. It is nice how they have singled out the Shopping Channels in HD here too and I'm not sure how many people subscribe to TV Japan.
Channels that we do not have at all like RFD-TV, Nuvo TV, Africa Channel, Halogen and NHK World might also be possible but it is likely easier to pick up an HD channel that you already have in HD. They are all possible though.
In the end, I see an TV Land HD and MTV 2 HD update sometime this quarter but like I've said before, unless we are getting a bunch of HD channels from Starz, we are going to have small quarters from here on out. I'll post as soon as I see the notice.
