Am I the only one experiencing an outage? I am assuming that others in the Clermont/Minneola area are out as well since the BHN phone number is constantly busy. Perhaps there practicing for a hurricane:)

Have you lost your mind? U-Verse can barely manage their network with people complaining universally about speed performance issues. Wait until they fully implement their NAT solution to IPv6....lol you think it's borked now you just wait.

We are aware and a fix is pending....thank you for being patient. No need to call.

BHN is a much better company than Comcast. They just keep it coming HD wise. Were now about two weeks before I finally have Sundance HD.

It's possible those extra channels are in the same mpeg format as the Game and Team channels.

Aww shucks.... (blushing)

Nayan/Oriolesmagic: Starz also does not seem to stick with their series long enough either. I might get Movie pass but cannot see myself EVER getting Starz even with HD added.

Gary: It's the truth. Your great man and so is BHN.

did you guys get Pro Sports On Demand yesterday? I didn't even though it was supposed to be added on the 20th. Oh HDOrlando what do you think about the sister cable system to mine finally getting the sports pass smile.gif and they are also getting some international premiums along with QVC Plus (really just a time shifted QVC) and the international premiums are to be in the 1400s and 1500s and their sports pass will be mainly in the 500s smile.gif What is odd is that the Greenville system is getting CBS College Sports SD/HD when TWC is fighting with CBS maybe they are not going to drop it after all ? Greenville is also getting Sportsman Channel HD which is very rare on TWC.
post #16957 of 18584
Kevin,

We did get Pro Sports On demand.

It just has SD content from NBA TV and NFL Network.

Maybe they are assuming the CBS deal will be done soon. Some nice additions for the system though.

yeah on the plus side Nayan's friend will finally be able to get beIN Sport along with all of the sports pass channels that Dallas has I believe that they will get the tier later this month before football season smile.gif Wouldn't surprise me if Greenville is getting a fiber feed from Dallas for those channels as we have all of those and then some. I know that the main headend in North Texas is in East Dallas so they probably ran a fiber feed up that way running along Interstate 30 from Dallas to Greenville, I am betting that is how they get their VOD shows off of the servers in Dallas.

He's gonna be a very happy guy. His wife, maybe not so much biggrin.gif.

I think CBS Sports is separate and negotiated differently than CBS/Showtime/etc. and that's why we didn't lose it and it's being added to those systems.

Thanks for the link smile.gif.

Programming question for BHN-Tampa. I"ve been waiting 20 years for BHN-Tampa to add CNN International and Boomerang. Other BHN systems has had these two networks for 20 years but not Tampa Bay customers. If the issue is capacity then why do we have Jewelery Tv on 3 channels. I have contacted BHN Tampa customer service repeatedly and all I get is a non answer. Can someone please educate me with an explanation
post #16963 of 18584
CBS Sports Network is separate but if there is a dispute between the companies or a deal that has to be renewed, sometimes that holds things up in terms of it being added.

On the TWC/BHN MTM deals, they have CBS Sports Network as possibly being dropped or moved to Sports Pass. You would have to think when they renew CBS/Showtime, they will work CBS Sports Network into the deal. This whole annoying thing should be ending soon and we will all rejoice when it does.


ksaxman: Bright House is working to get everyone even on channel lineups. Over the past few years, everyone outside The Panhandle has pretty much gotten the same updates and BHN has narrowed the gap by adding things like Jewish Life and NASA TV to systems that did not have it in those updates.

CNN International HD is rumored to be out and since BHN adds HD feeds as long as nothing from a company is on MTM agreements, I think you guys will get CNN International when we all get the HD feed for it.

On Boomerang, I would assume they would eventually add it if they are evening out the lineups. It is unclear when they will end up doing this though.
Please let me know if this answer helps you.

hmm the TWC notices this week no longer listed CBS sports as possibly being removed rather just listed as on month to month. smile.gif
post #16965 of 18584
Kevin,

It varies on each notice in terms of the wording.

Whenever the CBS deal gets done, they probably will also settle the CBS Sports Network situation. May it happen soon.
post #16966 of 18584
Some folks are speculating that the spat between CBS/TWC won't end until the actual football season starts. Let's hope it get's done sooner than that as that's a lot of Dexter people will be missing.
post #16967 of 18584
That's about 2 1/2 weeks.

"Dexter" people will be able to catch up on demand when this is all over.

The latest I have heard is FIOS accepted the same deal offered to Time Warner Cable but that's just the CBS CEO speaking. In the end, this whole thing is just frustrating.
post #16968 of 18584
Yes it is and I hope it get's done before football starts, not right up to that point. I read that about Fios and I take anything Les says with a grain of salt.

I feel bad for whoever's job it is to post for BH on Facebook, as some of the topics are good but every post is either people spamming they want Showtime back or The Blaze added.
post #16969 of 18584
Nayan,

Especially the birthday and Krapdashian posts. The Showtime thing has more people than The Blaze thing/.
post #16970 of 18584
Krapdashian biggrin.gif

Either way, I hope this is all over soon so we can move onto more important things, like what we want added to the lineup next smile.gif.
post #16971 of 18584
Thanks for the correct spelling. Unfortunately, I DVR them for my sister who does not cable so she can watch them when she comes over.

Agreed on that and only 1 1/2 weeks until we finally get Sundance HD.smile.gif
post #16972 of 18584
Oh hon I wasn't going to correct your spelling LOL! Krapdashian is appropriate biggrin.gif. (so I don't tick anyone off, I know it's Kardashian)

That'll be nice once we get Sundance HD and then FXX. Maybe by the end of the year we can hopefully get Chiller HD for you smile.gif.
post #16973 of 18584
Ahh, I did not realize that and it's nice to see a woman find that show to be crap.

What excites me about FXX is FX having more room to invest in drama as I watch four shows on their network.

Sundance HD will be nice but I'm doubting the E!/Style/Esquire/Sprout deal gets done clearing the way for Chiller HD by year's end. I'd rather knock out the Starz/Encore stuff then having that big addition loom over getting the channels that launch in HD.

I do think there is a chance BHN might get Al-Jazerra for you though.smile.gif

hmm I forgot to mention that in Hawaii TWC is adding: G4 SD and G4 HD to the system right before the esquire change over so maybe that means a new contract was signed?
post #16975 of 18584
Kevin,

It's possible.

It's also possible Comcast wants it on the system before The Esquire change.

We shall see but I would love to see a new deal that could net us Sprout HD and Chiller HD.

According to my database, Hawaii already has G4 SD and HD.

I only watch a few reality shows, like Ice Road Truckers, Ax Men, Face-Off. I avoid anything with Housewives, dancing children or people who think they're all that.

I would like to have AJA. They shut down all their other feeds once they went live on cable so it would be nice to have it again smile.gif.
post #16978 of 18584
Oriolesmagic: Got ya. Love that database you have.

Nayan: My goodness, I think you are one of the first woman I know that does not watch the damn housewives or the dancing shows although I'd love to see that big lady beat the crap out of some of those snotty mothers.

AJA is likely to happen especially with others like Direct TV and Dish Network having it. Just hang in there. I know you miss that Al-Jazerra English feed.

Your a great woman.
post #16979 of 18584
Aww that's a very sweet thing to say HD, thank you smile.gif.
post #16980 of 18584
Busy TV night in the Nayan household. I have the Rays/Yankees game going, along with the Nationwide race and the Packers/Seahawks. Thank you BH for making it possible and making both myself and my son happy. smile.gif
