I'd drink to that, but with as much beer as I had last night and having a slight hangover today I think I'll pass cool.gif. (I went on an inaugural beer run/walk last night and they had beer at every station, hence the hangover lol)

I have heard of the beer runs smile.gif I don't drink though frown.gif mainly because I have seen the bad it can do if someone over does it.

Oh hey I see that TWC is adding QVC plus SD to systems in Texas, Arizona, and California Next month. I wonder if this will lead to Texas systems getting QVC HD that don't already have it? I know Laredo has:

QVC HD
CSPAN HD
EWTN HD

that most of the state don't

and then Dallas has:
Bloomberg HD
Sportsman Channel HD
E! HD
Style HD
Pivot HD
PAC12 National HD (as does San Antonio, Austin, Waco)
post #16922 of 18584
I'm still jealous that you guys have Pivot smile.gif.

They are probably adding it in SD first and will roll out the HD version later, although it's surprising that they didn't already have that in SD.
post #16923 of 18584
Nayan,

I'll second that. If I had that, just Chiller HD would be on my list.

We will probably get it eventually.

Well Nayan these systems are only adding SD channels right now because they may want to reserve HD bandwidth for major adds but that may change soon smile.gif TWC just added the EPL package to all Texas systems with SDV! That was the first time all systems in Texas with SDV also have channels above 1000!

Oh nice! Let's hope that means more channels and more HD smile.gif. That would make my friend very happy.

What do you guys think about this:

http://www.adweek.com/news/television/directv-nfl-sunday-ticket-talks-151659

It could become very interesting if DirecTV does not renew that deal.
post #16927 of 18584
This has been talked about.

I thought a few years ago, "Sunday Ticket" would come to cable as a compromise to get NFL Network on systems. That obviously did not happen and everyone caved.

The exclusive deal is outdated and I think a non-exclusive deal would not hurt Direct TV much at all

In the end, we all deserve to the right to pay for "Sunday Ticket".

After all, we pay..........

- More in re-trans fees for CBS, FOX and NBC because of The NFL.

- More for ESPN

- Their high-priced NFL Network.

Given all the money we pay, Direct TV owes it to fans to go non-exclusive starting with the 2015 season.
post #16928 of 18584
I know we pay buckets of money for NFL games. I also agree that the exclusive deal is outdated, but it's also very expensive compared to other sports for the short amount of time you get to use it and I think people are starting to realize it's not the deal it once was.

I would like to see them not renew the deal and open it up to all systems so everyone that wants it can get it but with the high price tag I'm not sure how many takers there would be. Plus people are complaining about the cost of sports in general so spending the kind of money the NFL wants is going to be a hard sell.

I know football is a huge deal, I watch it and enjoy it (go Bucs!) but like I've said before with these kinds of discussions it comes to a point where the cost will just be too high and the value not there anymore. I'm not at that point yet, but it's inching closer.
post #16929 of 18584
Man, I can't seem to win. Now DTv could be on cable?

I am going through my yearly hand-wringing about switching to DirecTV. I literally only watch two television programs currently Dexter and Ray Donavan. I don't watch anything else except Sports, or occasional movies. Of course Game of Thrones was another one, I just mean at this moment in time Dexter and Ray Donavan, and coming up Homeland. (my wife watches steady diet of Bravo, A&E, and cooking/wedding dress/heidi klum shows). She just flips and I think even most the most basic DTV package would have the main channels outside of AMC which my son watches MadMen and BreakingBad. So on one hand I could save money but....

I am almost a cord cutter candidate for instance, MLB I don't need cable for I don't watch local teams I subscribe to mlb.tv and watch on Roku or xbox360. We buy UFC fights but can do that elsewhere.

However having said all of that, because of my college football addiction I cannot cut the cord, so that is just not going to happen. The problem is, you end up not saving any money because you cannot seem to find a way to get internet service to pay off. Directv in Orlando is apparently partnered with ATT, but man I am not sure how much I trust that. I was quoted 69.95 for 24 Mbit service with phone (which I also don't need) but not sure I trust that service.

I am on my laptop for hours on end however and can't bear the thought of going to some slow internet service. So I'll probably continue to vastly overpay for cable which I hardly use outside of ESPN.

Good thing my Brownies continue to suck, that's made the decision not to go DtV pretty easy. Pulling what's left of my hair out.

Do it. Time Warner and Brighthouse are awful. U-Verse's 6 meg Internet is more stable and nearly just as fast as TWC's 30 meg. And the PQ on Directv is far superior! A proper install will minimize rain fade. (If you like Pac12, stay with BHN...)
post #16931 of 18584
I understand. I look at DirecTV and think to myself 'yeah, they have what I want at a good price too', but then I look at getting locked into a contract that will go up after the first year and still having to pay for internet. I'm a World of Warcraft addict so slow speeds are not for me biggrin.gif.

I love sports but most of my teams are local so buying any of the packages (I do buy MLB though for my son) won't do me any good and cutting the cord is not an option.

I don't like paying what I pay for it either, but I know at least I am getting a great service that works and is dependable. I will gladly pay for piece of mind smile.gif.

Maybe they will be next smile.gif.

well I am on the Dallas clustered system so I am betting they may just be adding the international premiums in the 1400s and 1500s to start getting people used to them being that high up in the channel range and there is open space from 1000 to 1099 so they could add more HD there for now and just add in the international packages up above that as they are now using 1100-1109 for the EPL package. Also Greenville still has a long way to go even after the addition of the Sports pass as the will still be about 30 HD channels short of what Dallas has.

Need Hardware Expert Assistance.

I currently have Turbo Internet and Digital Phone. I'm thinking about ramping up to Lightning and want to know if there is a single piece of hardware that handles both VOIP and Internet. I don't have a lot of room left in the structured cabinet and heat is a concern so I don't want more boxes in there. If there is a single appliance, can I request that I get it or is it just the luck of the draw?

Some more new Charter lineups loaded up in Southern California, and Nicktoons HD is being announced for them on channel 784. Logo HD is no longer listed on channel 852, so it may not be ready to launch yet.
post #16940 of 18584
I know Logo wants to go HD but they aren't quite ready yet (it takes a lot to makes those 'ladies' look good!):

Will Logo TV be offered in HD?
We're working on it but the cost of HD-friendly drag queen make-up alone is staggering. But seriously it's an expensive process and one that'll take a while to complete. We've just started shooting all our original series in HD, and it will take time to get everything else upgraded. We're looking into a possible HD channel launch in the future but don't have a date yet.

I thought it was possible for October, when the Charter lineups I've been referring to are officially launched.

I think whatever activity occurs with new HD from Viacom, it's clear that Charter Southern California will be launching it.
post #16942 of 18584
It would be nice to see it launch in October, but since I have no idea when that FAQ was written it could very well be around that time. We'll just have to keep an eye out for it smile.gif.
post #16943 of 18584
Nicktoons HD and Nick Jr. are going to be in 4th quarter notices unless we get more HD Starz/Encore/Plex.

It does appear Logo HD is delayed. Viacom will have more HD to come as they are the conglomerate with the most channels still in SD.
post #16944 of 18584
I would really like more Starz/Encore HD (I know I sound like a broken record with that) because it would add more value to the package I subscribe to. It sucks having only one Starz channel in HD.
post #16945 of 18584
We all would like to get that out of the year as it's the big hole in the lineup. Then, the focus will mostly be on getting digital basic that go HD on the system.

I would not even have the Starz package with one HD but do want more Encore/Plex if I decide to get Movie Pass again. However, with IFC going to Digital Basic, I cannot see putting down $9 a month just for FearNet and Vutopia.
post #16946 of 18584
I know I shouldn't pay for it either but I'm a sucker for some things biggrin.gif. I'm enjoying The White Queen and in January Black Sails starts (which I really want to see!). Plus my son watches some movies and other programs so it's not a total waste. I pay for the Movie Pass too.

Sometimes I feel like this when I pay my bill:

post #16947 of 18584
Nayan,

You really need the extra HD value from that.

My gut says nothing new in our notice next week but I do expect something in the 4th quarter.
post #16948 of 18584
I've never found the programming all that compelling on Starz. I think they have the worst movie selection of any of the premiums, yet they're the most dependent on the movies.
post #16949 of 18584
We'll get them before the year is out (at least I hope so).

This notice will probably say something about Nicktoons HD but I think you're right about not much else. I would be nice to end the year with more HD goodies though smile.gif.

I tried to watch Spartacus but I just couldn't get into it like I did with Game of Thrones. The White Queen is pretty good but it's not going to be turned into a series. Black Sails looks good and so does Outlander, both slated for next year. Starz reruns their movies into the dirt and while it makes it more convenient for someone with weird working hours like me to watch, I get tired of seeing the same thing over again. But I got a good deal when I ordered it so I won't complain too much.
