*Your cable provider must carry SWRV as a part of your cable TV service in order to receive the live stream.

It doesn't work for me. I liked having the option of listening to MC with the player while I killed things and it sucks. I'll have to find a good classical station elsewhere I guess.

bad news! Fox is getting greedy! No Fox Sports 1 yet!

http://www.awfulannouncing.com/2013/july/fox-sports-1-having-trouble-with-cable-and-satellite-companies.html

Looks like Fox is screwing up big time! They are trying to get new deals for the channels off the bat so no:
FXX
FS1
FS2

if TWC gets their way if Fox doesn't agree to their price.

I figured something like that would happen. I love sports and that's really the only reason I keep cable but I have to agree that the prices for some of the channels (and therefore my bill) is extremely high. I would like FS1 but if it get's dropped here I understand and I hope they stand their ground and say they won't pay what Fox wants.

I honestly think the channels will be available and maybe the "so called" experts are wrong as TWC put in their legal notice that Fox Soccer is changing to FXX today for NYC so I am betting that nothing is going to happen with channels yanked it could have been a media misunderstanding or TWC could have misunderstood the deal changes? I don't think TWC would be adding Fox Deportes HD to more markets if some sort of deal isn't being worked out for the new channels to be available on Launch Date! Today is the big day for the Carolina's!:

They are getting:
Fox Deportes HD
Reelz Channel HD
TVGN HD
UP HD
EWTN HD
Galavision HD
Univision HD (where not carried via local affiliate)

today likely as the notices say on or about 7/17!

Oh and the Carolina's are getting HSN HD and Universal Sports HD next month smile.gif

I will have 145 HD channels on my system next month when Universal Sports HD launches smile.gif

Oh and Pro Sports On Demand will have NFL Network On Demand smile.gif it looks like TWC overlooked a lot of areas with NFL Network On Demand and this year they are adding it under a new channel called Pro Sports On Demand. The NYC Notice has mention of NFL Network On Demand moving to Pro Sports On Demand smile.gif I was wanting NFL Network On Demand last year but it never got added bummer!
post #16655 of 18580
You're catching up to us in the channel count, slowly but surely smile.gif. It is a big day for the Carolina's and I'm glad they are finally getting some of these channels!

I guess we'll have to wait and see about FS1. I'm sure as the date gets closer we'll know for sure if it'll be added or if they're having a love spat over it smile.gif.

NFL On Demand would be nice. I know my son would like to have that so maybe it'll be added here smile.gif.
post #16656 of 18580
Universal Sports might be the first time in a very long time that Time Warner Cable is getting something before BrightHouse Networks.

I don't think there's any question what's coming for you guys though.
post #16657 of 18580
OriolesMagic: Probably. We have been ahead of them most of the time.

My feeling is Universal Sports, More HD Starz/Encore/Plex and Sundance HD with the IFC/WE deal are on the way for us.

Kevin and Nayan: I had a feeling there would be a problem with Fox. They want a spin off of FX and two re-branded Fox Sports Channels that will drive up the bills. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.
post #16658 of 18580
I just wonder what exactly will go on FS1. I know probably some of the Nascar races like the trucks, possibly Soccer and college sports but I wonder if their plan is to move some of the big stuff like MLB and NFL to it in the future. Although if they did that I can imagine how many folks would be screaming if they couldn't get their football fix on Sunday or Saturday night MLB. It'll be interesting for sure smile.gif.

Some of the MLB Games are moving to FS1 starting in 2014 and supposed Fox will air significantly fewer MLB games starting next year!

Maybe it's a good thing I have the MLB package then! I root local and can watch the Rays but my son is a Yankees fan so 'he needs it' (his words) rolleyes.gif

well there will be less games on extra innings next years as the games will have national coverage I am betting that the local RSN's will still carry them in market though smile.gif
post #16662 of 18580
They might mean The ones on Fox.

It's possible they will simulcast some MLB games with the FS1 game blacked out in the home markets.

On another note, HD Showcase is still here and we did not get our OD duplicates today as scheduled in the HD section.

Some good news............... We are about one week away before Yimitz posts the Michigan notice.

I am expecting:

Universal Sports SD/HD
HSN HD

to be announced for systems out west IE: Couer D' Alene ID, Moscow ID, and Yuma AZ smile.gif

Also expect the california systems to announce Universal sports SD/HD

I am really surprised that TWC is not moving HSN to limited basic tier in areas where it is already carried as it is being added to limited basic in texas on a few systems in digital only where not carried already and they are also getting the HD version too!

I know that Laredo/Zapata Texas area having HSN SD being added to channel 5 digital only
Rio Grande Valley is having HSN SD added to channel 14 digital only

I am very surprised that AMC worked out a deal with TWC and I am betting it is something like this TWC agreed to move AMC and Sundance to lower channel numbers in areas where the channels are not as watched in exchange for lower retrans costs for IFC and WE smile.gif I am betting that Dallas has AMC added to the digital adapters and all it is going to take is a flip of a switch as AMC SD is not SDV already smile.gif along with WE.

Oh Hawaii announced Universal Sports SD/HD too so this add is going to be very wide for TWC!
post #16664 of 18580
Not HD, but CCTV America and a couple of Asian music channels are available on ch. 474 - 476
post #16665 of 18580
Kevin: Agreed on the AMC thing. I'm hoping we get Sundance Hd out of the deal.

diesel32: Those launched on time but not the OD duplicates in the HD section.

Were now just a tad over a week before Yimitz gets the Michigan notice.
post #16666 of 18580
Sundance would be one of the big ones we could knock off the list if we get it and I really hope we do.

Less MLB games?!? We'll have to wait and see on that one but if it pans out to be true them maybe the MLB package won't be such a good deal next year.

I hope Yimitz has some good news for us when he get's his notice. I promise to be extra nice so he won't threaten to hold out on us wink.gif.

Not to worry. A couple of days ago, we finally got the channel adds you guys got last month. So we are (at least for the moment) happy campers up here. biggrin.gif
post #16668 of 18580
Nayan: There will always be a ton of MLB games. I do not think the EI package will pretty much have the same amount of games.

With the IFC/WE deal, I'm predicting Sundance HD by year's end.

Yimiz: Have you guys gotten the OF duplicates in your HD section yet?
post #16669 of 18580
Actually, Extra Innings will have MORE games next year. The games moving to Fox Sports 1 are games that would have previously aired on FOX. There will be less windows on the major network but more on the sports network. There will also be nightly games that are coexists from the various FOX-owned regional sports networks. So, for example, the Marlins and Rays could have a game featured nationally, but still air locally on FSN Florida or SUN Sports.

Also, FOX will no longer have exclusivity for their "Game of the Week" window. Before, those games would not be on Extra Innings, and now they will be. They'll also be on MLB.tv.

Oh nice! Thank you oriole for the explanation smile.gif.

Not sure what you mean by "OF duplicates."
post #16672 of 18580
I think he meant On Demand.
post #16673 of 18580
Look at this sleasy ad!

http://www.keepcbs.com/

I am I the only one thinking it is time for Broadcast channels to no longer get paid for their shows?

They moved our premium movie channel ODs to a common menu, but they did that a few weeks ago. There's no duplication of anything that I can see. But our STBs and program guide are different from yours (we are a Motorola system here) so we are likely comparing apples and oranges I suppose. smile.gif

well yimitz TWC and Bright House have DCX3400M, DCX3510M, DCX3200Mp1 and DCX3200Mp2 boxes running navigator in areas that have Motorola boxes and digital simulcast. I have two DCX boxes running iGuide and 1 running Navigator I am in the Dallas Texas market.

No, no you're not smile.gif.

I really hate disputes because all it does is hurt the consumer. Either they lose the station or get a rate increase eventually to cover it. It's especially tough if it's a local one but I have to stand by TWC and hope they don't give in. When we had the dispute with WESH awhile back I missed it (and it's one of the ones I can't pick up OTA) but I was glad they didn't give in so easily. I agree though, Broadcast shouldn't get paid the big bucks like they do now and this is a big reason why.

Well I would lose some Texas Rangers games if they don't come to a deal!

I have 2 channels in the fight KTVT and KTXA and KTXA carries Texas Rangers games on friday nights!
post #16678 of 18580
oriolesmagic: Thanks for the info.

Kevin and Nayan: I hate these re-trans disputes. They are a pain in the butt and everyone knows they get settled within a few days or weeks if something gets pulled. At least network tv is trying to step up their game based on these limited series and some summer stuff like Under the Dome.

In the end, cable is where it is at today.
post #16679 of 18580
Oh that sucks Kevin frown.gif. I hope for your sake they come to a deal quickly as missing games would really tick me off if I were in that situation.
post #16680 of 18580
The good news is like Kevin says, this CBS Dispute could at least get Showtime/TMC off MTM's and lead to Showtime Anytime being added.

I'd love to see that notice shortened.
