The CBS-TWC Dispute is over.

Showtime/TMC, Smithsonian, Flix and CBS On Demand should be coming back to Bright House shortly. Showtime Anytime IS part of the deal as I predicted. We will see in our next notice or a TWC one if they decided to squeeze CBS Sports Network in the deal. My guess is that situation will be resolved too.

Our MTM list is really shrinking.

In a back post, I did predict Labor Day.smile.gif

Now, I want my September 1 update:)

and after that, we can focus on additions and the potential drop of G4 (Esquire) and Style on September 23.

Awesome! I can get my Flix fix now smile.gif.

Yes, I remember you stating that HD. So what are my lottery numbers for this week? tongue.gif

We will probably get Sundance and the others tomorrow, Wednesday at the latest. With the holiday I can understand the delay.

Not sure on the lotto numbers. Be nice to win but my predictions have never been good there.

Once we get our Sundance HD update, I'll be making a new Channel Chart post.

Here in Bakersfield the CBS channels are back, HDOrlando do you know if the deal made between cbs and twc includes anything new that we were not getting before.

feb1003,

Showtime Anytime I believe is part of it.

Nothing else though and even though CBS has an stake in AXS.TV, I doubt AXS.TV and HDNet Movies are headed back to Bright House.

The CBS channels are not back for us yet but should be soon.

Have you gotten the Sept 1 update yet?

I have my CBS channels back and there is stuff at stake. Smithsonian SD, startover for dallas CBS O&O channels, more showtime channels for areas that don't have all of them in
sd/HD.

I now have 151 HD channels and greenville has 126 HD or more depending if TWC added the rest of the Showtime/tMC HD channels.

we have not gotten the Sept 1 updates yet, maybe tomarrow, at least I am getting the dodgers back on kcal 9, I will let you know as soon as we get the updates
post #17078 of 18575
The CBS Channels are now back for us too.

Kevin: I think they will get what they are missing and I'm glad you have KCal 9 back Feb.

Dallas is at 151, but Greenville will only be around 122 by my count. They don't have all the Showtime channels in HD that Dallas does, and don't carry Next, Women or Family in any form. They do, however, have West feeds for Showtime, 2, Showcase, Extreme and Beyond. I will be interested to see in future notices if markets that don't have all the Showtime and Starz channels in HD will see them added. The Midwest regions are missing quite a few, and the Maine/New Hampshire units in the Northeast division are missing Next HD, Women HD and Beyond HD. And the California regions are really lacking premiums, although they tend to have the main channel East and West feed in HD.

The next Charter market to go all-digital is Asheville, NC, and this release confirms that Nicktoons HD is definitely out there. I suspect BHN will be the next to add it. I'm interested to see this list (and Saginaw, MI) to learn of what other possibilites might be out there for you guys (Logo HD, Nick Jr. HD). The Charter digital now site does not have them up yet. With Univision HD being in the fold, I think Univision Deportes HD may appear on Charter. Considering TWC/BHN recently added the national feed of Univision in HD for those areas without a local affiliate, I'm surprised Univision Deportes hasn't been appearing yet and might be a possibility for you guys down the road. These digital conversions are going to make Charter the second most consistent HD provider outside of BHN, as TWC can be all over the place. Some of the TWC NYC systems are the first non-BHN systems in the country to cross 200 HD channels, and the rest of the NYC systems will do so whenever they get their next channel (They're stuck at 199).

Here's the Saginaw, MI Charter lineup. Nicktoons HD and Nick Jr. HD are there.

Jesse,

Thanks for letting us know.

This means we should be getting them soon.

Did you also get QVC Plus HD?
post #17082 of 18575
no on QVC plus on SD and HD
post #17083 of 18575
Thanks Jesse!

I'm hoping we get all of our channels overnight.

Here's the Saginaw, MI Charter lineup. Nicktoons HD and Nick Jr. HD are there.

I am just glad that TWC finally launched the sports pass in Greenville smile.gif and adding LHN HD was gravy on top smile.gif

Oh I was doing some digging on Charter's Channel lineups here in North Texas they have added:

Rockwall
LHN SD/HD
ESPN Goal Line/Buzzer Beater SD/HD
Smithsonian channel SD
KDFI Movies!


Denton:
Disney Jr SD
ESPN Goal Line/Buzzer Beater SD
Smithsonian channel SD

Ennis:
Smithsonian channel SD
KDFI Movies!

this is the first phase for these system to be going 100% digital Denton is supposedly 100% digital already but they are 550MHz and I think they still have analogs on 2-27 rockwall has analogs on most of 2-99 as does Ennis.
post #17085 of 18575
What I'm wondering for North Texas Charter is if they'll get the recently added stuff in the newer digital areas. I know there's some 750MHz systems around, and that may be delaying those adds. North Texas only has 25 HD premiums instead of what appears to be the new Charter standard of 56, with every East and West feed imaginable, with the exception of a few Showtime and Starz ones.
post #17086 of 18575
Kevin: The expansion looks good. It will be interesting to see if they worked CBS Sports network into the CBS deal and it is off the NYC and NC notices today. Sometimes they take a bit to update though.

Oriolesmagic: I'm sure we will have Nick Jr. and Nick Toons HD by the end of the 1st quarter of 2014. Love how you hunt these things down.
post #17087 of 18575
On Zap2it for all BHN markets, INSP HD and Sundance HD are up. No sign of QVC Plus SD/HD or HSN HD in Bakersfield.
post #17088 of 18575
It's not up here yet.

Hopefully, sometime today.

hmm maybe after they get the rest of the north texas systems done by early 2014? I know that when I was helping someone get charter internet for business the tech showed me that Fort Worth has 8 DOCSIS channels now so they are doing upgrades still. Oh and they have added 2 HD channels since the cutover to digital only Disney Jr. HD and ESPN Goal Line/Buzzer Beater.

Oh I found some goodies smile.gif go to the page that has the all digital lineups and type in the zip codes:
75087
76201

and you will get more lineups that are converting to digital only but they are listed in the wrong area.

Looks like some systems in GA and Columbia MO are next in line as well.

Showtimes are back in guide. Now if we can just get those other Starz HD channels...rolleyes.gif

Trust me, I feel your pain smile.gif.
post #17092 of 18575
I'm telling you guys, more HD Starz/Encore/Plex or new Viacom HD Channels by the end of the year.
post #17093 of 18575
I want the new Viacom hd channels more
post #17094 of 18575
Either way I'd be happy, but I'm rooting for more Starz/Encore in HD smile.gif.

No Sundance HD yet huh? I wonder what the holdup is.

The systems I got to come up with 76201 are rural systems that were long neglected by Charter. I got Lineville and Wedowee to come up. Lineville appears to be near Birmingham, Wedowee near Atlanta. But it's quite clear Charter's getting a massive infusion of HD, and this time, everyone's coming along for the ride.

This all-digital kick is really making me wish Charter kept the systems that they sold to Atlantic Broadband. How much better off we would have been if we had stayed for HD.

These are the channel grids used in Alabama, so this is a preview of what Birmingham will see in the future.

Dotsdavid: I' rather have Starz/Encore/Plex HD to get them out of the way.

Nayan: No idea. I want to see Sundance HD on the guide.

OriolesMagic: At least you have Direct TV.

Mgsports: This was reported and for now, it seems to just be Texas systems.
post #17098 of 18575
On the BHN website, they have everyone minus the Panhandle with Sundance HD and Inspiration HD. Jesse reported Indiana now has both live.

However, none show QVC Plus SD/HD and HSN2 SD which leads me to believe these have been delayed.

Hopefully, we get at least Sundance HD and Inspiration HD live soon.

I wouldn't say that QVC plus is delayed more of a few days off from the original date TWC is still listing QVC Plus to be added this month on time. Also I don't know why someone at BHN put out on or about September 1st for the channel adds knowing that it was a holiday weekend? Look what it took for TWC to launch LHN here in Texas smile.gif The channels are still not in the guide as searchable yet.

Oh by the way TWC is getting ready for San Antonio TX to cut over to the new lineup on the 15th of October smile.gif they are the first outside of the northeast to test the new channel themed lineup smile.gif I was told iGuide areas are not going to be done until 2014. Maybe needing a new version of iGuide that removes the HD guide filter that displays only the HD channels and for other options that TWC could be developing smile.gif I know that TWC needs to update startover/lookback and caller id on tv for iGuide and add remote DVR to iGuide. Does anyone know if BHN michigan upgraded their older boxes to the latest version of iGuide that TWC is running in a few markets? LA and Dallas smile.gif

also the new San Antonio lineup still shows only 2 GAME HD and 1 TEAM HD channels but hopefully this means that next month that we will see some more HD adds in Texas smile.gif at least in San Antonio smile.gif

Oh Orielsmagic Charter in Denton Texas is 550MHz and they are running VOD and DOCSIS 3.0 so they may not be able to get to 140+ HD channels maybe 100 HD or so unless they do a full system upgrade to 1GHz or are in the process of doing so. the system in Denton is running QAMs on 28-78 and 95-99 except for channel 70 which is the amplifier pilot channel. Also the Denton system is fed from fort worth and and they have some special setup where they can run the Denton system from the Fort Worth area that uses Cisco boxes and the Denton system is Motorola as is all of the areas outside of Fort Worth and Park Cities in Texas on Charter.

Oh and the new San Antonio lineup is listing HERE TV! and that is not available in Texas yet so that will be launching soon.

Also the San Antonio Texas lineup does not show any new channels such as international premiums that are available in the northeast and there are a few channels that they don't have now on there such as HERE TV! but that is about it. It looks like TWC did not have time to update the channel lineup that they are showing in PDF form to show the Fox changes or the LHN add yet.

Sundance HD showed up late yesterday afternoon on my Tivo listing. Between AMC and TCM.
