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:
