Did you hear that sec network is lanching in 2014. I hope brighthouse picks it up right alway
post #16262 of 18580
dotsdavid,

Time Warner Cable will likely be doing the talks.

The real fight there will be over what systems in SEC territory (Orlando, Tampa Bay and Birmingham) will have to pay.

Were going to see it on our bills more than the other areas.

It will be interesting to see if ESPN pushes LongHorn Network in as part of the deal.

Hopefully, a deal can be worked out over the next year.

80% of them are thieves. They're lucky they're not being prosecuted.

Cities are rampant with cable theft. I've heard stories about what used to go on with Comcast in Baltimore.

Now that The Blaze has ended it's exclusive deal with Dish there's a huge marketing campaign to get it on systems everywhere, so those who have asked for it keep an eye out.

well brighthouse is adding BYU TV/BYU TV HD in June to all of their systems that have SDV which is over two thirds of their systems.

why did you rip off my post from broadband reports word for word and even kept my capitalization of BYU TV? I am motorola870 over for anyone that is interested.
post #16267 of 18580
There is a real campaign by Blaze fans for carriers to add the channel.

I think Dish users might have to pay an extra fee for it and I'm sure if this is the case, others would pick it up. BHN Orlando offers some channels like Here! as stand alone.

It will be interesting to see what happens here.

No, you have to take the AT250 (top) basic pkg to get it; no a la carte for it on DISH...

undisclosed deal for fox stations renewal done? I noticed that Time Warner Cable is also moving Speed to digital in some systems where it is still in analog my area might have it yanked from analog soon! I know that Waco Texas is having Speed lopped off of the analog tier soon! their notice says:

New deal for the Fox stations allowing Speed to go to digital only approved? Maybe TWC and Fox came to an agreement for how to handle the new channel arrangements later this year?
post #16272 of 18580
Ours is moving to digital this month and it's because Speed is becoming Fox Sports One later this year on August 17th:

well it looks like my area is having Speed axed from analog as well! although I don't know why they would need to unless they plan on moving channels off of SDV such as HD channels or SD channels that are on tiers that can be placed in the expanded basic trap region!

1:27 am - CableCard Firmware update in progress… so much for what I had recording right now.
post #16276 of 18580
No version number changes. Not sure where firmware versions are. It does look like ODN 6.0.0.19 has been preloaded but not yet made active so maybe that's getting close to release here.
post #16277 of 18580
…and here we go again…. another reboot….
post #16278 of 18580
OK, 6.0.0.19 is now running.
post #16279 of 18580
Kevin: Could be. We should find out in a few months. Daystar might be a new one on MTM's. It seems that list keeps piling up.

Kevin Dean: What do you know about this update?

I hated the timing as it came right before The Shaq vs. Barkley three-point contest.
post #16280 of 18580
Why would they be getting rid of Cozi TV?

Not much, but how much do we ever really know about these updates. It supposed to be faster on all hardware and have less bugs, but I don't recall anything more specific mentioned. ODN 6.1 is out in some TWC markets and for whatever reason removes the DVR compensation feature.
post #16282 of 18580
Kevin Dean,

Thanks for the info.

What is the DVR compensation feature?
post #16283 of 18580
1 new feature, when you press Guide twice, you can now filter by "Subscribed" in addition to the previous options.

DVR compensation is the feature that when you're fast forwarding and press play, jumps back a little bit to compensate for your reaction time in pressing play.
post #16284 of 18580
For those interested in info on upcoming Navigator updates, check our the TWC Navigator thread. They generally get the releases months before we do, so you can see what kind of discussion there is about new / removed features / changes / improvements.

I don't think they are going to remove Cozi TV instead list it as a channel at risk of being dropped due to low ratings or TWC might not want to pay for renewal of carriage of the channel.
post #16286 of 18580
Kevin Dean: Thanks again for the info.

mgsports: I think kevin120 is right on.
post #16287 of 18580
It says Delete Cozi TV so hopefully they have it on another Channel and not having a contract problem with it.

Other areas have Cozi TV on the month to month notices and their notices do not say Cozi TV is being removed so I am thinking my TWC system jumped the gun in announcing the drop as it has said that for going on 3 months now wink.gif

Regarding The Indiana Press Release:
Quote:
On or after June 1, 2013 , the Digital Access tier of video services will no longer be available. Customers who currently subscribe to Digital Access must contact Bright House Networks to change their service level prior to June 1st. Please contact Bright House Networks at 1-855-222-0102 for more information.

I know some people with Brighthouse who may be effected by this and often don't check the notices. Suppose they don't call to change their service tiers? Are they going to lose those channels? Or is BHN just moving them to the SDV band to make way for more channels? What channels are effected? Or does this vary by region?

post #16290 of 18580
That's an excellent question Satch. I have no idea what Digital Access is as I don't think we even have a tier like that here in Central Florida, unless they are doing away with the digital service all together in which case that would really suck. Hopefully someone has more info on this!
