post #16621 of 18581
Yeah you are missing a few big ones! Hopefully once they implement the 1000's and rearrange the lineup it won't be such a nightmare smile.gif.

That's interesting about AXS and HDNet Movies. I won't hold my breath but I won't give up hope either.

Looking by the date it seems Universal Sports will be added at the end of August so that gives us a possible target date for it to be added here. No mention of adding any more Starz or Encore channels in HD though frown.gif.

Kevin,

That is interesting about AXS.TV/HDNet Movies.

Things could get interesting when that deal is up but we will see.

On MTM's, a new IFC/WE deal could help us get Sundance HD although I am not sure what was delaying that for us anyway.

Music Choice was off of our notices last month, we still do not have TVGN on our notices and HRTV could be delayed because of the MTM's. After all, it was announced for TWC Kansas City and Kentucky last year.

Pretty good news from the notice though especially it lands us Sundance HD.

I do expect Universal Sports HD in our next notice and hopefully we can knock out at least some of The Starz/Encore stuff.
post #16623 of 18581
Getting Sundance HD would be a big one for us so hopefully by the end of the year we'll have it. The hardest part is waiting for our notice! biggrin.gif
post #16624 of 18581
It would be nice to knock Sundance HD off the list.

We see Michigan's notice in less than two weeks so the wait will not be as long.

I want HD goodies.
post #16625 of 18581
At the risk of sounding like a spoiled brat, I want more HD goodies too smile.gif. I am so far from being spoiled anywhere else in life, but with our channel line-up I sure do feel like I am.

Same here, I'd love to be rich but I have the best HD lineup in the country.

Why can't a notice just leak?
post #16627 of 18581
Oh now a leaked notice would be nice! I doubt we could get that lucky though.
post #16628 of 18581
Well HD, it appears that Chiller is not available in HD at all frown.gif. People on their Facebook page are asking for it though, so maybe someday. It sucks, as I am now hooked on it!
post #16629 of 18581
Well guys how do you do that trick to get new channels that are not subscribed on the Cisco/Samsung boxes? I got a DCX3510M with navigator today after my box went kaput due to the led on the front going out partially. I like the new box but the guide is a little slower smile.gif I was able to get them to give me the newer box as they usually give non-whole house DVR customers the iGuide boxes.

The software the box is running:
ODN 6.0.0_19 with ODN 6.1.0_7 loaded but not installed smile.gif
post #16630 of 18581
Oh I found some more notices that have Hustler HD and Playboy HD announced on TWC. The former Insight areas are to get the channels along with some other areas in the midwest.

Where did you see official word that it is not available?

Good to know. When AXS.TV/HDNet Movies something could get going but I'm not betting on it.

No official word, but judging by the folks who are asking them to launch the channel in HD pretty much sums it up.
post #16634 of 18581
Nayan,

Can you please link me or direct me to the areas?

Here's their official page: http://www.chillertv.com/

Here's their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/chillertv

This one is for U-verse but a couple folks discuss about it not being in HD: http://forums.att.com/t5/Features-and-How-To/Why-no-Chiller-network-in-HD/td-p/3002761

And one more: http://evilepisodes.com/2011/03/28/as-we-wait-for-chiller-tv-in-hd-they-lockdown-a-couple-of-originals-for-the-network/
post #16636 of 18581
Nayan,

I've seen all of these.

However, there is no official word and we do have that circumstantial evidence.

I'd prefer Chiller just come out and say if it is or is not.
post #16637 of 18581
I sent them an email (feedback@chillertv.com) even though folks have said it either bounces or they never receive a reply, so we'll see what happens. Maybe we'll be lucky and get an official word, but I'm taking everything I've read as they don't offer an HD version.
post #16638 of 18581
Nayan,

I've tried that too and no reply.

Be great if we can get definite word though.

Also Nayan your friend may need to have the HD tier to get beIN sports smile.gif I will let you know in the morning smile.gif

Only 1 notice for Texas so far has beIN Sport being added digital basic.
post #16640 of 18581
Ok got the TWC Dallas notice and it looks like Greenville may not be getting beIN sport HD unless TWC made a type on the notice smile.gif in Dallas 809 in beIN Sport HD and it is being duplicated on the HD tier but in Greenville HSN HD is on 809 I am betting beIN sport shows up in Greenville on 808 as they have that channel as an open channel smile.gif

Here is the Universal Sports channel numbers for Dallas:
238 Universal Sports SD
239 Universal Sports HD

AMC SD is being added to channel 50 digital only (already on a channel in 200s) and being moved from digital basic to expanded basic on the Dallas system smile.gif I am assuming this will be added to the digital adapters as well.

Sundance is supposedly being added to channel 246 in Dallas in addition to channel 576 as well.

Pro sports on Demand is being added to channel 605

Health on Demand is being rebranded Be Healthy On Demand

North Texas On Demand is being Rebranded Local On Demand

smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif
post #16641 of 18581
My friend already has the HD tier so he's set no matter what happens smile.gif. Thank you for posting all this Kevin!
post #16642 of 18581
Kevin: That Dallas notice shows there might be some AMC/Sundance positioning changes as part of the IFC/WE deal. I really feel this will land us Sundance HD.

Universal Sports HD does seem to be coming and we will see if we get more HD Starz/Encore/Plex.

well AMC used to be on analog here until Comcast moved it to digital along with Hallmark to move G4 and Style to expanded basic analog and now all 4 of them are digital only smile.gif
post #16644 of 18581
I think AMC and Style are digital-only here, as well as Travel, Golf and a couple others. I only use my TV without a box to fall asleep with History and to Wake Up With Al wink.gif, so as long as they don't move those two I'll be a happy gal smile.gif.

Remember that TWC areas get notices every 2 weeks, and their next ones would be due this Wednesday (7/17).

I think with these notices, we'll see the following in the Northeast and the Carolinas:

The first sign of Starz/Encore/MoviePlex HD adds. All these regions have Encore, Starz, Starz Edge, Starz Comedy and Starz Kids & Family already, so there will mainly only be 4 new HD channels for them (IndiePlex, RetroPlex, Starz Cinema, Starz in Black).
WE HD for Rochester. Yes, they're missing this for some inexplicable reason.
Universal Sports HD
ID HD for Central NY/New England (Albany will be getting it on this day, no sign of it for those areas. As for why they haven't had it, who knows?)

I don't know if we'll see any other surprises. Jewelry TV HD has shown up in the Carolinas, it may show up in the Northeast systems now. Since HSN HD seems to be appearing on systems missing it, it may finally show up in the Carolinas. They're still missing QVC HD too, but there's been no action on that front.

The Northeast/Carolinas ones are predictable. The Midwest, TX and CA divisions are not as much.

Well I assume that anyone missing IFC HD or WE HD will get it soon now that TWC has reupped with them smile.gif I am betting the move of AMC to digital expanded basic in Dallas was a part of the agreement.
post #16647 of 18581
I bet it was too Kevin smile.gif. It'll be nice for those folks missing those channels to have them though.

I hope we get word on the Starz/Encore channels soon. It would be nice to have them in HD. SD hurts this old broads eyes tongue.gif
post #16648 of 18581
I just want to knock those Starz/Encore/Plex Channels off the list and follow with Sundance HD with of course Universal Sports HD being added.

If those get done, your mostly just waiting on digital cable channels to go HD or some new channels to be added. At least when Starz gets done, that's a big roadblock out of the way.

BTW: Were supposed to get those OD duplicates in the HD section tomorrow with HD Showcase going away. We shall see if it is done on time.
post #16649 of 18581
Starz, Sundance...we've got a couple big ones to get yet. But you're right, once those are on the system we'll be wanting and waiting for more biggrin.gif.

rr.com has been updated btw and it looks nice smile.gif.

except they took away the music choice radio! Grrr...
