That San Antonio TWC lineup might be their messiest in the country. They have most of their HD in the 100's, but it's interspersed all over the place. Comcast's Michigan and Illinois lineups were equally as messy, but Michigan just moved to the 1000's. Charter in Michigan was pretty ugly, but the digital transition in Saginaw will fix that, and I assume for the rest of the state.

According to the TWC MyChannels site, Rochester and Albany are the next to switch to the new channel lineup. It looks to be the same as Syracuse. I don't see San Antonio on there. Is there another site for TX?

When they're done, TWC will be able to cite national channel numbers the way the dishes do.

yes you have to go to the page with the channel lineups that are changing and change the zip code at the top to 78201 for example smile.gif

you will notice how San Antonio has a ton of spanish channels listed in the 900s on the new lineup that are not available on the northeast realigned lineups and international premiums are missing from the San Antonio lineup.

IFC is now officially off Movie Pass.

Hopefully, Sundance HD and Inspiration HD will be uploaded soon maybe even overnight.

Then, we wait on QVC Plus SD/HD and HSN2 SD although I'll never watch either. It's nice to see your cable company in the lead on the big chart.

Theirs no TWC my Channels Site becuase it takes me to TWCKC and they haven't updated their Lineup yet to the new one and have a local channel on 960 called Fire Station..

Somebody said on here that their area in North Carolina was getting Longhorn Network.

Also in Olathe/MO on that Cable System that people keep mentioning here and do it on it's board for Orlando still hasen't added HD Channels in Thousands becuase just added CSPN,Sportsmen's,Smithsonian,Disney JR.,India,Reto,Cookimg Channel,TVGUIDE,Ovation but not the SD in 9 hundreds,has Sports Tier still in 2 hundreds and not 7 hundreds,HD On Demand Channels where like Oxygen and so on are to be.

Could anyone who has Showtime tell me how far back Dexter goes On-Demand? I just started season 6 but my disc from Netflix is messed up and I really would like my Dexter fix this weekend smile.gif.

EDIT: Nevermind, I found my answer mad.gif.

Two additional Bigten Network overflow channels are on the guide, making a total of four
post #17108 of 18584
mgsports: I'm not following but Long Horn Network is only going to be on Texas systems for now.

Nayan: Nice!

diesel32: They are indeed. The channels were originally taken down and months later in a notice, they said they were removed but I guess they are back up. This means I can increase our HD Channel Count. Nice Catch!

Now, I want our Sept 1 Update (Sundance HD, Inspiration HD, QVC Plus SD/HD and HSN2 SD).mad.gif
post #17109 of 18584
I received a flyer from Brighthouse offering a free equiptment upgrade available. They are offering a digital adapter. It says "The digital Adapter is compact and connects directly to the television. You'll gain access to more channels and be able to view dozens of HD channels that previously weren't available without an HD-Ready TV. Best of all, the Digitial Adapters we are providing to you are free of charge"

With the Digitial Adapter, you'll enjoy:
Access to more channels, like Bright House Sports Network, Telemundo, Speed, Travel and Golf.
The ability to watch dozens of HD channels that previously weren't accessible including WCJB ABC HD, WESH NBC HD, and WOFL FOX HD
Digital picture and sound on every TV.

In addition to the current services provided by your community, we will provide you with two (2) Digitial Adapters and two (2) remote controls. If you need additional Digital Adapters, they are available for $1 per month, each."



Anyone else receive this letter? What does this mean? I have three TV sets at home. Two HD DVR and a regular TV.

I live in an apartment complex where basic cable is included in my rent.
post #17110 of 18584
VG, it means that you can use this device to view the channels that were taken off the basic/standard lineup. Since you have two DVR's you could use the digital adapter on your other TV to view those channels.

/ BHN and Time Warner have hooked QVC Plus but haven't heard about TWCKC.
post #17112 of 18584
VGPOP and Nayan: Soon my place will have 4 HD boxes. Finally getting rid of the last SDTV and feel very fortunate to be able to do this. Those DTV's help you see more channels without a box but we choose to suck it up and get a box so the little niece can watch Nick Jr. which will likely have in HD within 6 months.

On another note, we were supposed to get Sundance HD and the rest of the Sept 1 update one week ago.mad.gif
post #17113 of 18584
Oh nice HD! I'm pretty sure we'll get those other Viacoms in HD. That would be a couple more we could knock off the list smile.gif.

I don't know why we don't have Sundance HD or the others yet. I think it has shown up in other areas but not ours. Wonder what the delay is.

The switch of G4 to Esquire is supposed to happen on the 24th of this month, but I have a feeling it will be delayed again as they want a whole slew of original programming ready to go at launch but haven't reached their goal yet. I guess we'll see around that time if it's a go or not.
post #17114 of 18584
We will definitely get the other HD Viacom's. They and mayb Aspire are the only channels we have in SD but available in HD that we do not have. Apparently, those Chiller HD reports are misprints but have yet to get final word.

Hopefully, the Sundance HD delay will end soon.

On Esquire, they should permanently delay the launch. This channel is going to bomb and I definitely want my prediction to be correct. The best case scenario would be this channel shutting down and one less thing we all have to pay for. Since it appears there is no HD Chiller according to the Facebook message I got from them, I hope Bright House drops them on the 23rd (That's the switch on date for Esquire) along with the not-needed Style. It would not last long because of E! and to get the other NBC/Comcast stations renewed when their contracts are up but it would be nice. I'm calling this right now though. Style will eventually become E! 2. It will suck either way.
post #17115 of 18584
I agree with you. While I am enjoying Chiller, I would like to see Style, E!, etc. just go away and Esquire not even launch. They are most certainly on my NOT watch list biggrin.gif.
post #17116 of 18584
Thanks for the info, Nayan.
post #17117 of 18584
Nayan: There need to be more women in this world like you. Down with Esquire, Style and the dog crap on E!

I am glad HDorlando that you got the sports pass, we have NFL football back, if you can next Saturday please check to see if the ESPN GOAL LINE in your area is HD OR SD, here in Bakersfield yesterday was still showing in SD,

Any way heres to great football viewing I hope your team wins.
post #17120 of 18584
Awww yeah football!! I am so stoked it's all I've had on all morning biggrin.gif.

Sundance HD has arrived up here in Michigan, I first noticed it on Thursday. It's odd that we get a channel up here before you guys do.

Does anybody know when ShowtimeAnytime will be available from Brighthouse?
post #17123 of 18584
Has anyone realized that we may see the Viacom HD suite open up as additions again smile.gif due to the CBS contract being finished? CBS and Viacom are still controlled by same people but as two different companies so if CBS is a fight with say TWC do you think Viacom would cut a deal for:
Nicktoons HD
Nick Jr HD
Logo HD

?

I don't think they would.

So here's hoping that TWC finally gets MTV2 HD and TV Land HD in the Midwest and Texas smile.gif

Oh and the Longhorn Network now has a logo on the navigator guide boxes here in Texas but still not able to search for the channel in the keyboard search or by category frown.gif
post #17124 of 18584
Feb1003: I'll look next Saturday.

Nayan: It's nice to have the NFL back.

Yimitz: Have you gotten Inspiration HD yet too? I'm wondering myself about the delay.

DouglasR: It's part of the renewal deal so it should happen soon. Maybe ask Gary.

Kevin: My guess is they were already opened. I bet we either get the new Viacom HD or more HD Starz/Encore/Plex this quarter and then the others in Q1 of 2014.

Inspiration HD is up, kinda. Its channel (375) is in the guide, but with no name and TBA for programming. I can tune to 375, and it's 1080i/30, but right now they are showing some lame infomercial so I can't really tell just how "HD" it is (if you what I mean) until I see some normal programming. No sign of HSN2 (SD) or QVC Plus (SD/HD) as of yet.
post #17126 of 18584
Yimitz,

My guess is they are having an upload problem of some sorts.

Hopefully, they will all be up for us soon so we can focus on the G4 (Esquire)/Style deadline and the end of the month that will come that same week.
post #17127 of 18584
I'm hoping for a nice notice this time around smile.gif. I really do hope the Esquire/E!/Style channels disappear.

Since we all have our list for what we'd like to have, which channels would you love to see go away? Besides those mentioned I'd like to lose:

TLC
Velocity
Bravo
Lifetime
post #17128 of 18584
Great topic idea.

Golf
Velocity
TLC
E!
Bravo

Our lists match up well. Lifetime isn't so bad and they occasionally have a good movie.

I think we both do not like the elitist garbage. This country would be better off without it.
post #17129 of 18584
While there's plenty of stuff that I think is hurting the country's intelligence, and plenty of stuff you'd have to pay me to watch (and a lot), I wouldn't want to see channels really fall apart because somebody would want to take mine away from me.
post #17130 of 18584
While I agree with both of you about the garbage hurting our intelligence (Housewives? Boo-Boo?), I wouldn't purposely want any channels to go away but I certainly wouldn't cry if a few of them vanished. I just thought it would be an interesting topic to see what we could do without since we're usually on here wanting and wishing for more.
