I doubt TWC drops anything major especially from a conglomerate. Those Starz/Encore channels will hopefully finally have a new deal. They have been on the deals for about 3 years. The only channels I can recall being on the MTM's this long are BBC America and The Weather Channel. My prediction is something happens towards the end of the year.
Britt's successor will probably be like him but until TWC drops something from a conglomerate, I do not take them seriously as a serial dropper.
I doubt they drop The G4 re-brand as they are a conglomerate. What will be interesting though is when The Fox channels are up again. They want some pretty big increases for their proposed new channels.
They are rumored to want close to a buck for Fox Sports One so that would be a pretty big fight. On top of that, they also want to spin off Fox Soccer into an FX Comedy channel and have the new channel be on basic.
The first fight they have with a carrier is going to be pretty big. The companies need to put their foot down here.
As for BHN, I hope we get those new deals do I can have more Encore HD for my movie pass and take down any hurdles in us possibly getting Chiller HD and Sundance HD.
Spiderman865: We are spoiled with HD but you can never have enough of it.
you do realize that we won't see the Fox fight until the renewals come up for renewal at the end of 2013 or during 2014 right? I have a feeling that we will see the changes to the Fox channels happen without a fight. Also I am wondering if Fox is going to split Fox Movie Channel into FXM and Fox Movie Classics which I want to say would be a replacement for Fox Soccer plus.
April and May seem to be interesting as the Texas TWC systems are supposed to get new channels and I have a feeling that these will a part of the additions:
