watch next will be Texas! They are focusing on DOCSIS upgrades in Texas right now.

I hope TWC replaces Ovation HD with another HD channel we are missing North Texas when they drop ovation on the 31st most likely.

I have a feeling TWC will be adding more HD channels in the Texas divisions soon as they put BBC World News SD in San Antonio on 298 leaving about 10 channel slots open for more HD adds. My system has to remove some on demand channels before we get a ton of new HD channels. I know that I am getting KTXD MeTV HD soon so that could be the ovation replacement.
post #15874 of 18580
I wouldn't count on TWC dropping Ovation just yet. The channel seems to be gaining popularity, and it might just be leverage. I know Glenn Britt said how he wanted to get rid of weak channels, but Ovation is child's play to the programming expenses. I would think Ovation carriage is tied to Hubbard's ReelzChannel as well.
post #15875 of 18580
Kevin: I hope that is the case. You deserve more HD.

Oriolesmagic: I do not think it is a done deal either. I think it is more TWC wanting to make a statement and I think it will go further than Ovation. If they lower their asking price, this might be adverted. In the end, I think TWC would love to make a statement and drop some channels for a few weeks.

I am with them on doing this to Ovation because I do not feel they deserve a raise.

ReelzChannel is on another deal but the issue of Ovation could come up when Reelz's deal is up. I think TWC/BHN would drop both if push came to shove.

Some of those channels listed are in parts of the LA systems so have Destination America HD while some have ESPN Deportes HD it has to do with the fact that TWC was not using SDV in the 750MHz former comcast areas and they added some channels in those areas that the SDV areas did not have added and then they ran out of bandwidth and TWC started to add channels only to the 860MHz SDV areas and left the 750MHz areas out now TWC has launched SDV in the 750MHz areas that have dropped analog expanded basic. not to the extent that the 860MHz LA areas have it deployed as they are only using 16 QAMs for SDV in the 750MHz areas while the 860MHz areas are using 22 QAMs for SDV Basically TWC is harmonizing the LA lineups.

the notice posted earlier was for Barstow which is 550MHz with SDV enabled with no analogs above channel 13 except for channel 41 CSPAN.

this is the LA notice:
Including: Los Angeles, Orange County, parts of Riverside County, parts of San Bernardino County, Ventura.

I know when I previously checked systems in the LA division, I never saw Destination America HD featured. There's a few oddballs with the Discovery channels, some of the Northeast divisions are missing it too, others are missing ID in HD. For some reason, they don't have the channel(s) at all in those respective divisions.

my system has 143 HD channels which is the most for any of the west region on TWC for now it seems that LA might catch up very soon! I think they will be going around 135 to 138 HD channels in those areas. It is not going to be a net add of 18 HD channels in LA as about four of the announced channels for this month and last month are being added in about half of the areas one set of areas is getting HSN HD and Destination America HD added while the other set of systems is getting ESPN Deportes HD and MLB Strike Zone HD added.

I know that my area had an additional 20 HD channels added last year after we went from 16 SDV QAMs to 24 SDV QAMs similar to what LA is having done to them.

Kevin: Fuse was all about TWC NYC having MSG.

That dispute was why it was pulled and Fuse came back when it was over. If not for MSG, I could see how Fuse would be dropped completely.

OriolesMagic: Brighthouse outside of their Panhandle divisions pretty much has most of the same HD channels although Bakersfield surprisingly does not have HSN, NHL Network or WGN America at all. Some Time Warner Cable divisions have odd lineups like you point out.

With Military Channel HD launching, the last Discovery channel not in HD is Discovery Fit and Health.

Time Warner does need to catch up to Bright House who has more than they do despite doing their deals for them.
post #15881 of 18580
We are getting towards the end of the month and that means another notice is coming.

Michigan should get theirs on Thursday and us a week from Monday.

I do feel Military Channel HD will be in the notice especially since TWC California is adding it in January.

Maybe they will do a Military update and throw in Military History HD and Pentagon Channel HD? TWC/BHN can pick those up because they are not on month to months and already have both channels.

The channel I'm really hoping for is Chiller HD. Of all the stuff still to launch in HD, Chiller was sky high atop my list and was the thrilled to hear it has launched on two small cable co's.

As for others, Sundance HD could be in play along with those new sports channels TWC announced but has not added to the Kentucky or Kansas City systems yet and The Pac 12 Alternates.

On the months to months...

OFF: BBC America, Cooking Channel, DIY< Food Network, GAC, GSN
Added: ShopNBC

Dropped: Ovation (When the ball drops)

In the end, I expect just Military Channel HD but hope for my Chiller HD which I way more than I wanted Weather Channel HD and much more than I still want Sundance HD.

What does everyone else want?

Ohh yeah, Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays to everyone!

someone posted over in one of the north carolina threads that TWC sent a letter notifying of the sports pass increase to $8,99 and that it hinted at more sports pass programming coming in upcoming months so I bet that my division will be doing the same thing and more HD channels,.

I smell an HD for Texas come February:

and here is why:

TWC added BBC World news in San Antonio and put it on channel 298 and they could have put it in the 270s or 280s but the didn't which leads me to believe that we will get more HD soon in Texas.
here is what I am talking about
259 PAC-12 National
260 FOX College Sports Atlantic
261 FOX College Sports Central
262 FOX College Sports Pacific
263 Tennis Channel
264 FUEL TV
265 CBS Sports Network
266 NHL Network
267 Sportsman Channel
268 Big Ten Network
269 FOX Soccer Plus HD
270 PAC-12 National HD
271 Disney Junior
272 GMC
273 TWC SportsNet
274 TWC SportsNet HD
276 TWC Deportes HD
277 beIN Sport
278 RLTV
280 NFL Network
281 NFL Red Zone
292 DIY Network HD
297 Shop Zeal 4
298 BBC World News

299 Starz Kids & Family HD
300 Encore E

wouldn't TWC put BBC World News on 282 if they weren't adding more channels? I also was talking to the online chat about an issue with the ordering of the HD DTA's and was told that more HD channels are coming but they don't know which ones which usually is a precursor to about a month to month and a half out before we get an announcement of HD adds the last time I was told this I got:
E! HD
Style HD
Reelz Channel HD
Oxygen HD
Ovation HD (getting dropped) will it be replaced? on january 1st or shortly there after?
Sportsman Channel HD
GAME2 HD
Bloomberg HD
IFC HD
Showtime Beyond HD
showtime Women HD
Showtime Next HD
Showtime Extreme HD
More Max HD
Thriller MAX HD
TMC Xtra HD
Hub HD
Halogen HD
Fox Deportes HD


I am expecting:
Disney Jr HD
Military Channel HD
Sundance Channel HD
BBC America HD (now that a deal is done)
TV Land HD
MTV2 HD
Fox Movie Channel HD
Fuse HD (a long shot but covered under MSG deal)
WGN America HD (maybe as we have the SD version and they got an agreement to move the channel to digital nationwide)
post #15883 of 18580
Kevin,

I smell one for you too.

Our Sports Pass is $10 now following the addition of RedZone.

The only sports stuff they have to add is those TWC stations in the Kansas City and Kentucky that were announced but apparently delayed. The only channels in Sports Pass not in HD yet are ESPN Classic and Fox College Sports (available part-time on Direct TV). They also will likely add The Pac 12 Alternates in 2013 and maybe some more out of market RSN's.

Hopefully, $10 is the cap for the Sports Pass. I still remember when it was $1.99 and we got NBA TV and Tennis Channel with it.

I think your HD projections are correct but hope it includes Chiller HD and Sundance HD to go along with the likely addition of Military Channel HD.
post #15884 of 18580
Peter, you had the wheels turning in my head about the LG reorder, until I saw the $1000 price. Too bad that unit isn't a DVD player too, then we wouldn't have to swap DVI cables or get a DVI switch, and it would be more justifiable at that price. I know that cutting edge technology is not inexpensive, but my wallet has its limitationsluojie

According to Zap2it, those extra Sports Pass channels (One World, Fight Now, WFN, Outside, Pac-12 regionals) were added to TWC in the Mid-Ohio region, including Columbus and Toledo.
post #15887 of 18580
Looks like TWC is boosting the download speed for the standard internet users for no additional charge. Is BHN going to follow suit ?

post #15888 of 18580
Up here in Michigan, I got a postcard from BHN a few weeks ago stating they were upgrading the standard speed in our market to 10Mb down, 1Mb up. I verified the change last week.
post #15889 of 18580
Oriolesmagic: I do not always trust those listings and did not know they were coming to Ohio?

Kevin: Do you know if those channels launched anywhere?

Rich and Yimitz: Definitely good news.
post #15890 of 18580
HDOrlando: The entire Midwest region was slated to get those channels except for Cincinnati and Cleveland for some reason. Most of the national areas were getting them too in KY and TN. The guides on Zap2It do show all of them launching in both Toledo and Columbus, can anyone confirm if they did? I know the Pac-12 regionals were announced in October/November for the Eastern region, but never got added. Some of the areas were not getting beIn Sports 2 as they lack a Latino package, just as they did not get Time Warner Cable Deportes HD.
post #15891 of 18580
Just want to wish all my BH friends a very Merry Christmas! May Santa bring you some awesome goodies and may he bring us some great HD! smile.gif

I would assume a near launch as the TV listings on the TWC website list the channels.
post #15893 of 18580
oriolesmagic: Thanks for the info. We have a system in Michigan that does not get Deportes either.

Nayan: Same to you and everyone else. May everyone have a Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holiday.

2013 will not be as big as 2012 with no NFL Network but there are still goodies to be added (More HD Starz/Encore/Plex, Sundance, maybe even EPIX and the HDNet Movies pipedream for some) and new channels hat have gone HD (Military Channel, Chiller and probably more) that we will get in HD.

We will find out if we are likely getting goodies in our next notice in two days when yimitz will hopefully have good news from Michigan for us.

Kevin: Could you please link me?

Thanks!

Some further fuel to the fire on my prediction we will get Military Channel HD in our notice.

I was looking over the BHN IPad app lineup and I saw "Military HD" in it.

While they also have the Starz HD channels listed which will not come until a new agreement is reached, there is nothing to stop us from getting Military Channel HD.

I think we will get at least that in the next notice.

I have noticed that TWC TV APP website for computers has been enhanced nicer picture!

I noticed Ovation has been yanked off it.

these have been upgraded to HD on the app:
Military Channel HD
BBC America HD (added to the app)
MTV2 HD
TV Land HD


also the channel logos are now in color and the picture quality has improved significantly!

the quality of the video seems to not be as washed out as before.

Hmm Time Warner Cable just added Encore HD to its southern california systems so I would say that they are a possibility as TWC has an agreement to carry all of the channels except for Encore Espanol, and the 2 new Encore HD channels.
post #15897 of 18580
Kevin,

That sounds good on the AP. Maybe I'll get it if I get an IPad.

On Encore, we got it in March of 2010 or 2011 when it was on monh to month deals and Tampa Bay got the main Starz around that time or later in the year.

I think the month to month deal holds up the other Encore and Starz channels so I doubt it's over but given ho long it has been on the deals, I think an agreement will be reached soon clearing up it's long listing on the month to month deals and more HD Starz/Encore/Plex.

Everyone: Yimitz will have Michigan's notice for us sometime in the afternoon or early evening giving us a peak as to what our Monday notice will have in it.

Does bright house allow for desktop viewing of the app? that is how I use it on TWC with my home computer which I use as a 4th tv now that the quality has improved.

I know with TWC you can just login to their website at www.TWCTV.com and enter your my services user/password and it requires microsoft silverlight no app download required. I looked on the bright house website and found nothing for this feature you need to nudge gary to get them to allow for this as TWC already allows for this not to mention VOD over IP to the ipad, iphone, android devices, and desktop computers is in a rollout phase for TWC right now.
