diesel32,

We should see the Michigan notice next Thursday via Yimitz. It should have beIN Sport in it and maybe other goodies. While I do not like that this probably lowers the chance for Sundance HD, getting beIN Sport knocks a major thing off the list leaving only more HD Starz/Encore/Plex, AXS.TV/HDNet Movies and EPIX.

I'm hoping The Magic preseason game not on local tv will be on this week. Regardless, I'm ready for the season.

I have definitely noticed the logos. BHN updated most of the logos but the one for Prime Ticket that is most outdated.mad.gif

HDOrlando I found something interesting for the TWC system in Telluride Colorado is that they have 15 Nodes! So they are upgraded to either 750MHz or 860MHz. Right now they are stuck at either 48 or 52HD channels depending if they have:

NFL Network HD
NFL Redzone HD
TWC Deportes HD
TWC Sportsnet HD

Also wonder if they will get beIN sport come November 1st. I am also betting that they will get World Fishing Network HD soon since TWC is give that channel launches.

Kevin,

I think all Sports Pass systems will get it in at least SD.

I'm expecting us to get it possibly on the 1st too given the demand.

We shall see but as always, more HD is always great.

More Local Channels are great and competitors in the area doing changes to.

I have to say I absolutely love the TV app! I just got a bunch of new channels added and I can watch all my premiums like HBO. The only thing I'd like to see added is ESPN. It has the news version but not the original one.

@ Nayan

You can add the Watch ESPN app to your ipad/iphone and enter your My service account and get 4-5 different espn channels....

I looked at the available AP channels.

What's interesting is they have The Pac 12 Regional Channels in SD (These will eventually come) but also the Starz channels except the one we do not have at all in HD?

Nayan: When did the HD versions of those channels get added to the ap?

With beIN Sport pretty much a done deal, The Starz/Encore renewal is the next major shoe to drop and will always be looking for signs that it could be done. It would clear the way for not only more Starz HD but Encore HD and Plex HD plus On Demand content for the Movie Pass. May it finally get done soon.

my impression was when the app was first released. i noticed the regionals after i downloaded the app to my ipad.
post #15611 of 18585
The Starz! channels were there when I downloaded the app. Just got a few more PBS channels added last week I think and when the Pac 12 channels were added to the lineup they were added to the app also.
post #15612 of 18585
iceturkee/Nayan,

Thanks for the info.

It will be a relief when that Starz/Encore deal gets done. I want more HD for my Movie Pass and that month to month list to be shortened.

Seems TWC had to make a compromise on the carriage of:

TWC Deportes SD/HD
TWC Sportnet SD/HD

in:

Gunnison Colorado
Telluride Colorado
Yuma Arizona
Moscow Idaho/Pullman Washington
Couer D Alene Idaho

these systems have the channels on the expanded basic tier digital only which means that they are on the same tier as in LA but instead of getting lakers games programming they get the test card saying this programming is not available in your area. I though that TWC might have to scrap those areas getting TWC Sportsnet and TWC Deportes after the shift of TWC Deportes to Spanish tiers across the nation.

Telluride hit the big 50 in HD count and will hopefully have NFL Network and NFL Redzone HD very soon once TWC gets the necessary upgrades done to provide them in Telluride!

"Grimm" is still in my scheduled list yet it also says it's recording even though it doesn't appear at all in my DVR list. I presume I was seeing black at first because both tuners were in use, but why wasn't it showing what was being recorded and why are my recording indicators not present or even in the list correctly. Odd Odd Odd. Let's hope they both don't disappear at the end. Since Grimm wasn't even in my DVR list at all yet, I'm starting with that one. I feel a restart in my future.
later....
So now after the shows have completed, Grimm now shows in my DVR list. Curiously, the red record light is still on when nothing is recording now. This may have been triggered by a half hour show just before Fringe and Grimm that was recording a timeslot where the show was no longer schedule due to a later guide revision. Perhaps that confused things too much and is why we need the feature where the scheduled recordings get reprocessed after guide updates to remove items no longer airing.
even later...
After finishing Grimm likely due to tuner buffer, Selecting play on Fringe and Grimm from the DVR list immediately would go back to live tv and the recordings disappeared after rebooting. So nothing was actually recording tonight. WTF?

Kevin please reach out to me in our direct forums with the usual information. I need to examine your DVR. Also please track these oddities and add them to the thread you would be creating.

Thanks...

I left everything alone in the hopes that the recordings were still taking place. No such luck. Just before midnight the box was still frozen at 9.27pm. After a power cycle, I saw that neither recording was captured. The log says "Settop was unable to record this program (20)" for one of the programs and there is no entry for the other.
I will contact BHNexpert to make an official report if any of the problems repeat..

Pease open a thread in our Bright House Direct forums and include all the normally requested details....also keep a log of future incidents and add them to that thread.

Thank you

Kevin,

That is very interesting. I'm still wondering when we will get those TWC channels. I think BHN is delaying them due to The Dwight Howard thing.

BHN Orlando is going to be at the very worst 211 HD channels (3 HD Shoppings on Nov 1 and beIN Sport/Deportes around same time) by year's end. I feel so spoiled that a TWC system has 1/4 of what we have.

Hopefully, TWC will get those notices back on the site. Yimitz probably will have a Michigan notice for us on Thursday.

mgsports,

We already know this BHN gets things off the TWC deals and eventually the national versions will come to us.
post #15619 of 18585
We should hear from Yimitz within the next few hours on The Michigan notice.

I'm betting there is something in their paper today about beIN Sport but not the Deportes version as they do not have much of a demand for those channels. We should also have some new stuff on the month to months.

We shall see soon. I'm betting on a Halloween notice for us.
post #15620 of 18585
Got the notice from Yimitz but no beIN Sport. I still believe it will happen though.

Basically, we will probably get the national version of the TWC SportsNet Lakers Channels (We will get Deportes too as Michigan's division does not get Deportes channels).

Here is the notice from Michigan...........

The notice was in today's paper. No changes to the month-to-month channels.

Effective on or after December 11, the following will be added to the SDV system:

TWC Sportsnet National - Sports Pass (ch 574)
TWC Sportsnet National HD - Sports Pass (ch 674).

As of September 23, the following were added:

NFL Network (Digital Basic)
Red Zone (Sports Pass)

(but of course we kinda knew that already. )

Also, a couple of changes to the Michigan system:

Golf Channel is changing channels and moving to digital only, so it will require a STB or tuning adapter effective December 11. Also, some of the "extra" HBO channels (HBO2, HBO Family, etc.) will have new channel assignments effective December 1 (but, oddly, the new ones are not listed).

That's it for this month.

All of a sudden I having a problem with recording conflicts. I was trying to record Modern Family yesterday and it showed a conflict, I tried to resolve it but got the message "Currently Unable to Record, please try again later" even though there was no conflicting recording. I checked again today and the 10/29 recording for Revolution also shows a conflict with no other shows being recorded at the same time. If I try to resolve it, I get the same error message. For the Modern Family recording last night, I got the "cannot switch channels message" which prompts you to choose which show to cancel, one was Modern Family, the other showed as "". I cancelled the recording and tried to manually record but it would not record it that way either. mad.gif

Found a legal notice for insight systems in Ohio where TWC is going to add Hallmark Movie Channel SD/HD so it looks like the Hallmark channels deal might be re upped on 11/30 as that is when Hallmark Movie Channel SD/HD is supposed to be added to the insight areas that had the expanded basic analogs yanked. smile.gif

Also Aspire is coming to the the western half of the TWC systems in the US on 12/3 in SDV areas I guess as that is when a lot of systems from Ohio to California are supposed to add it. Would not be surprised to it the legal notices for Texas come in a week and a half. Looks like Aspire choked on HD distribution.

Nothing about beIN sport or beIN Deportes in the ohio legal notice which has me to believe that those systems legal notices are not on top of things like they should be as they will have channels added and it is announced that they have been added after the fact or the legal notices doesn't come out 30 days before the channel add and not all systems have the correct info as some areas will announce a channel and then the rest will have it announced two weeks later.

Today at 11am bids for the Premier League's US TV rights are due for the rights to broadcast all 380 games of the leagues schedule next season and the next two seasons after that. I wonder if beiN and TWC/BH are waiting to "officially" announce the deal with each other as rates would be different if beIN has the Prem next season or not. The Prem TV deal is expected to be announced next week. The first round of bids saw bids from Fox/ESPN, beIN, NBC, Discovery Networks, and IMG who do most of the TV production for the league who would sub-license the games to the different TV networks .

The link that said beIN was coming to Brighthouse on their Tampa page is now dead. http://brighthouse.com/tampa-bay/about/10923.htm

bein has been agressive having won the rights to broadcast the spanish league. i wouldn't be surprised if they won the rights to the english premiere league.
post #15625 of 18585
Kevin,

Agreed on all counts.

beIN Sport really made a name for themselves by getting all of those rights. It will be interesting to see who wins the bid.

With the hockey season looking like it's not gonna happen, I'd like to see more soccer so I'll be keeping an eye on this.

The link is dead now. BHN Indiana probably pulled it but beIN Sport is going to happen for the Soccer Fans.
