post #15721 of 18581
So, the year is winding down and man has it been an awesome one TV-wise! While the November notice usually isn't a big one, December has been known to have some goodies listed from in the past. So what would you like to have added for the New Year? I'd ask Santa for some more Starz! HD, Epix HD, Sony Movie Channel HD and BBC World News HD.

I'd like...........

1) The Starz/Encore deal renewed so the long month to month list will be shorter and I can get more HD for my Movie Pass.

2) Sundance HD. It can be added now if BHN wanted but I assume they are waiting for when they have nothing to add. I hardly watch it but want it in my HD section.

3) Epix HD! I'm not sure I'd get it but they have some good movie selection.

4) More HD On Demand. Not a lot has been added here lately and Direct TV has added a lot of HD OD lately even channel that have not even launched in HD.

Other than that, it's about channels going HD like Chiller, ESPN Classic, etc.

I doubt we get anything in the notice but since BHN usually announces things over a month ahead of time, November is the first 2013 notice.

Time Warner isn't on it yet because none of the area's that got it doesn't have Time Warner.

As I said previously, carriage of a subchannel is between BHN and the broadcaster. Unlike cable channels, its carriage will be decided locally, not on a corporate-wide basis. Cox-Hearst's decisions will have nada to do with it. If current practice is any indication, any subchannel of a currently-carried broadcaster will be carried by BHN.

All other Digital Sub Channels in Orlando are afflinated with like Wesh and so on so would TNN if not then more States would have it know as a Regular Channel.

Nothing personal, but I can't understand what you're trying to ask. The English is too broken. I apologize.

TNN is now a broadcast network. It will most likely only strike deals with over-the-air broadcasters. Any cable carriage will be the result of the carriage deals with the broadcaster, not TNN. It's more like CBS, now than CNN. CBS is not carried independently on cable systems. Broadcast channels affiliated with CBS are.

I finally got to experience Directv VOD and can say the quality was poor for the deadmau5 song that I downloaded. It is nice to see that a lot of the programs are free but it sucks that you have to have the title downloaded to the DVR which takes up space on the hard drive. Luckily with cable you go to a menu that is produced by a server and the video is sent over a QAM carrier subchannel. My area has 8 QAM carriers setup for VOD which is above normal for TWC I think the only other area to have that many would be NYC.

I am guessing TWC is finished up with all of the channel adds for the year after RLTV is added probably because their resources are being shifted to DTA's and 8 channel bonding! I know that Kansas City is the first market with TWC to go to 8 channels for the DOCSIS downstreams my market was the first TWC market to go above 4 to 6 downstream channels also I believe that upstream bonding is fixing to go beyond the 3 test markets of: Dallas, NYC, and Hawaii.

TWC is showing all areas to have the 30Mbps and 50Mbps tiers as available which means they are fixing to launch channel bonding on the downstream in the remaining markets that need to have downstream bonding and even the small resort towns of Gunnison and Telluride Colorado are getting DOCSIS 3.0!

Kevin,

I did not know that about Direct TV VOD. Still would like more HD OD from BHN.

I agree with you on TWC/BHN being done with channel adds for this year We get The Laker channels in December but that's it.

The carriage deals are trying up to for BHN Orlando. If the Starz/Encore deal is not renewed and they do not wish to add new channels we do not have in SD, BHN Orlando has only Sundance HD, Jewelry TV HD, and possibly Pentagon Channel HD, Aspire TV HD and maybe even RLTV HD if it indeed launches in HD as scheduled in December to add in HD.

It's a good time to improve systems.

BTW: Everyone, they seem to be switching WUCF onto the old WMFE channels as scheduled. 1001 is now a BHN Info Channel and WUCF HD is on 1024.

Found 11 locations that matched your search and I can post you the rest to. So you see if like WFTV wanted to add it then it would have to go 39.3 because Weather is on 39.2
WSMV 4.2
Nashville, Tennessee
WJSU 40.3
Anniston, Alabama
post #15730 of 18581
It looks like we got another HD channel today in the switch.

WBCC HD on Channel 1068

All of the changes can be found on the channels WUCF used to be on.

I'll update the list in my link.

Fringe and Kitchen Nightmares didn't record due to Channel not available again. 1035 shows when I tune to it now. Pretty sad the decades in and they still can't make cable tv reliable.

please don't delete my TWC posts because I post what upcoming changes TWC has that usually affect Bright house as well smile.gif. I made that post about Directv VOD just as a personal reply to HDOrlando.

DrDon,

Thanks for doing that and we all regret that you had to come in here and fix things.

ESPN is now available for Xbox users! Woot!
post #15736 of 18581
BHN and Time Warner are owned by the same company and good to know about ESPN3.
post #15737 of 18581
Nice!

Good to see some news. This thread had been dead for a few days.
post #15738 of 18581
It is nice to have that extra little thing added. Now it's even more tempting to grab an extra TV and Xbox just so I can watch it in the bedroom. Mr. Nayan would be so thrilled rolleyes.gifbiggrin.gif

I understand where you are coming from I just returned it today the price was just too low for a reason.

In relation to TWC's and bright houses month to month notices looks like there might be a last minute HD add at the end of the year after all!

BBC World News is announced for Rochester NY in SD and HD so I am guessing that the BBC month to month deals is done!

EGAL NOTICE Time Warner Cable's agreements with programmers and broadcasters to carry their services and stations routinely expire from time to time. We are usually able to obtain renewals or extensions of such agreements, but in order to comply with applicable regulations, we must inform you when an agreement is about to expire. The following agreements are due to expire soon, and we may be required to cease carriage of one or more of these services/stations in the near future: Current TV, BBC America, BBC America HD, Cooking Channel, Cooking Channel HD, DIY, DIY HD, E!, E! HD, Encore, Encore HD, Encore Action, Encore Drama, Encore Love, Encore Mystery, Encore WAM, Encore Westerns, Food Network, Food Network HD, GOLTV, GOLTV HD, GSN, Great American Country, Hallmark, Hallmark HD, Hallmark Movie Channel, Hallmark Movie Channel HD, IFC, IFC HD, IndiePlex, Lifetime, Lifetime HD, Lifetime Movie Network, Lifetime Movie Network HD, Music Choice, NHL, NHL HD, NHL Center Ice, NHL Center Ice HD, RetroPlex, Smithsonian OD, Smithsonian HD, Sprout, Starz!, Starz! HD, Starz Cinema, Starz Comedy, Starz Comedy HD, Starz Edge, Starz Edge HD, Starz In Black, Starz Kids & Family, Starz Kids & Family HD, Style, Style HD, YouTooTV, WE, WE HD. In addition, from time to time, we make certain changes in the services that we offer in order to better serve our customers. The following changes are planned: On or about November 28, the following channel will be added to the Digital Basic Tier: RLTV Redefine Life TV Ch 271. On or about December 27, the following channels will be added to the Digital Basic Tier: BBC World SD Ch 192 and BBC World HD Ch 1092. Some of the new services listed above cannot be accessed by CableCard-equipped Unidirectional Digital Cable Products purchased at retail without additional, two-way capable equipment. You may downgrade or terminate service without charge at any time. Further, if carriage of a premium channel is discontinued and you have incurred installation, upgrade or other one-time charges relating to such premium service within six months prior to the date of the change, you may elect to downgrade or terminate service within 30 days and obtain a rebate of any such charge. HBR-1x

Also Hawaii had some interesting changes they had BBC world news announced as well along with some of their clear QAM channels moving to 134.x and 135.x (military bases only for 135.x) which I am assuming means that Oceanic TWC has been doing a major system rebuild over the last year or so to 860MHz or 1GHz as right now the 134.x QAM channels are at 122.x and that is the top of the system currently.

I would assume that my system would at least get BBC World SD because we already have CNN international and CNBC world.

Also I noticed that San Antonio Texas has TV Japan HD on TWC.

FYI I believe that Discovery Networks takes care of BBC's american channels distribution agreements as believe that when digital cable started BBC and Discovery agreed for one of the digital suite channels to be BBC America.

Kevin,

This is interesting news.

We should all see BBC World News HD probably sometime in the first quarter of next year. It's possible the BBC America is done as they are in the notices an extra month.

On TV Japan HD, I have not seen it in the TWC NYC notices.

If there is no new Starz/Encore deal, I see BBC World News HD and hopefully Sundance HD in our first quarter update.

Great find Kevin.

I am wondering if my system will be able to get the HD version of BBC World News unless they move some channels around and yet I don't have BBC America HD so maybe they will add that too? I almost want to say BBC World News is a National add but I am not going to say for 100% that my system would get it but if it did I bet it would be on channel 219 right next CNN because TWC has created a second range for Sports channels in the 230s because of no space in the 100s.
post #15749 of 18581
Kevin,

Even if BBC America was not in the deal, it probably comes off the deals soon anyway as it's been on there a few years already.

They would probably place it in the 1222-1224 range for HD here and in the 200's for SD until they do a much needed reorganization of the digital SD channels.

Hey it sounds great and works great if you can work around the remote. I paid next to nothing for mine last Christmas. The only regret is that remote.
