A&E networks are on the MTM notices now!

hopefully this means lifetime will be nocked out in that deal as Lifetime is owned by A&E networks.

Kevin,

Great Find.

This probably means the whole suite of A and E channels will decided at the same time and would not be surprised if they set a December 31 drop dead.

The only channels in the conglomerate not on that list are...........

Crime and Investigation Network
H2
Military History

BTW: History en Espanol, Lifetime Real Women and Military History are the only ones in the conglomerate not available in HD. If any do become available, we should get them quickly as I do not think A and E networks will allow this to drag out especially with the ratings increases they have gotten from "Duck Dynasty" and Bates Motel".

Let's hope there is that drop dead so this can be knocked out quickly.

I have 21 HD locals.

I have 32 HD premiums (HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Starz, Encore).
I have 8 out-of-market RSN's.
I have 24 HD PPV (Playboy, Hustler, PPV, Game/Team HD)

That adds up to 222.

Oriolesmagic,

We might be off one actually.

Did you include Willow Cricket HD?
post #17195 of 18580
A&E Networks are now on the MTM? You know they will want more money because of Duck Dynasty smile.gif.
post #17196 of 18580
Definitely. I do think things will get settled quickly.

CBS Sports Network is also not on the notice so they likely threw that into the CBS renewal.

On another note, Orlando is now the 18th largest TV Market in The Country. Were moving on up.
post #17197 of 18580
I figured the deal would include CBS Sports so having off the notice is no surprise.

I am really hoping we don't go through another love spat, especially with A&E as that's a lot of channels that we could end up missing for awhile. Let's all hope for a quick resolution.

I have not yet. You will be at 223 by my count when Willow Cricket HD is added.

As for the A&E deal, there's some areas where TWC doesn't have Crime & Investigation (especially in TX) so an all-encompassing deal might get them that down there.

Military History might be coming soon in HD. It was announced and on some lists for Buckeye Cable in Toledo and then disappeared. They were supposed to get Military Channel in HD but that has since disappeared for them too.
post #17199 of 18580
Is Willow Cricket a full time channel or just game-only like the UEFA, Rugby, and EPL channels on Directv? Directv has 2 Cricket channels but they are not in my package so I can't verify.
post #17200 of 18580
From what I read it looks to be a full-time channel.
post #17201 of 18580
Oriolesmagic: When you get a chance, please look at my list (Link in Signature) and let me know what our lineup differences are.

We will see on other TWC notices regarding Crime and Investigation Network. It might not show up on our notices until November as sometimes it takes a month for them to appear for us although when a new deal gets done, it is removed from our list quickly.

It would be nice if there was an all-encompassing deal so once it's done, we see nothing from them for a couple of years.

Everyone: We still do not know our HD Channel number for Willow Cricket as it was a typo on the last notice but I'm projecting it between 1165 and 1173.

some parts of Texas have C&I HD (Austin & Waco along with San Antonio) but Dallas does not for example
post #17203 of 18580
QVC Plus HD no longer shows up when you type in the channel number.

It will be up eventually with HSN2 SD and I'll never watch either.
post #17204 of 18580
I won't watch them either. Amazon is the lucky recipient of my money smile.gif.

Totally OT: I have my first real 5K race this morning and I am stoked! Wish me luck smile.gif.
post #17205 of 18580
Good Luck Nayan. Let us know your time.
post #17206 of 18580
Good luck! Bring a mobile to device to stream something with - then your post is totally on-topic!
post #17207 of 18580
Well, I had my phone so I guess that counts. Sadly this old broad can't run anymore but I hoofed it and finished under an hour and beat my own personal time by 20 minutes smile.gif.

Back on topic smile.gif, I wonder why QVC Plus HD was removed. I won't watch either of them, but that just has me curious smile.gif.
post #17208 of 18580
Nayan: Nice time.

No idea on QVC Plus but they were probably just testing. It will likely happen by month's end with HSN2 SD.

Univision Telenovelas HD is new smile.gif
post #17210 of 18580
I forgot that History/H2/Military History are all under A&E. They had better hurry up and make a deal quick! biggrin.gif

Thank you for posting this Kevin.
post #17211 of 18580
Kevin,

Nice find.

Univision Telenovelas HD AND Univision Deportes HD are new possibilities for us.

It also appears that the entire A and E suite is now on month to month agreements.

On another note, youtoo has been off of our MTM but might have been a typo like Music Choice.

G4 lost any appeal years ago. Not sure exactly what kept it around this long but based purely on feedback I don't see a lot of you watching.
post #17213 of 18580
Honestly I haven't watched G4 in years and I couldn't even tell you what's on the schedule. If it goes away, that's fine by me. Maybe we can get lucky and not have Esquire launch either tongue.gif.

I'll be keeping a close eye out for an A&E deal. I do not want to lose my IRT or Ax Men. Then I really would cry smile.gif.
post #17214 of 18580
I figured this was coming after the Univision deal, I'm surprised it took this long. I'm guessing Univision Deportes HD will be seen on a lot of the Northeast and Carolinas systems, maybe TX too.

This is the rare occasion where TWC gets something before BHN. I think you'll get the Starz/Encore stuff before they do though, as well as Nicktoons and Nick Jr.
post #17215 of 18580
We'll have to see what's in our notice at the end of the month, but it's nice to see the Spanish viewers getting a little love this time around smile.gif.
post #17216 of 18580
Gary: G4 was indeed going down hill years ago and right now, it's just Cops re-runs, episodes of Campus PD, Lost/Leap/Heroes re-runs and movies. It should definitely shutdown as is.

It will be interesting to see if it and Esquire (Style) are pulled a week from today.

It might knock us down a bit on the HD count but no one will care and others will be very happy never to see Esquire.

Nayan: I'm happy all the A and E are on the deals at the same time. It gives us a better shot at a quicker drop dead and all get renewed long-term at the same time. Good thing any of their HD holdouts do not appear to be launching soon.

Oriolesmagic: Agreed on all fronts and still think one of more HD Starz/Encore/Plex or the new Viacom HD is coming this month maybe even with these Univision Channels.

Nayan: I'm expecting an HD notice.smile.gif We will get news from Yimitz outside of the Univision channels a week from Thursday.

I don't think G4 and Style will be pull the TWC notices have noting about them being pulled so I wouldn't sweat it.

Oh and the Carolina's are to have QVC HD added in november smile.gif
post #17218 of 18580
Some new TWC notices are being posted.

The Northeast is not getting anything new. Rochester still lists GSN HD and WE HD which it was lacking, but it should have GSN HD already. Albany never got its Destination America HD and ID HD that it was supposed to. There's nothing new on TX notices either.

The Carolinas are finally getting QVC HD on November 5th.

NYC's notice hasn't been posted yet, and TWC SoCal is getting Univision Deportes HD and Univision Telenovelas HD.
post #17219 of 18580
Kevin: I am actually hoping G4/Esquire will be pulled. G4 is a waste and Esquire from the looks of the lineup will have NBC reruns and a bunch of crap that I would hope no respectable male would watch tongue.gif.

HDOrlando: I'm glad all the A&E channels will be in one shot too. Once a deal get's done that will be a bunch we don't have to worry about for awhile.

orioles: Thanks for the updates. They give us an idea as to what we can expect in our notice smile.gif.

I think Texas' larger markets are going to get the Jadeworld package next month as mysteriously the TVB channels were announced for the Dallas system and then yanked from the notices I think the announcement was too early and TWC plans to move the international channels to the 1400s and 1500s in the Dallas area to prepare for the new channel lineup they had them announced for the 1500s and the existing international premiums were to be duplicated in the 1400s smile.gif

I wouldn't be surprised if the rest of the SDV system in Texas get QVC HD that don't have it soon smile.gif

Revolt is to launch on TWC in LA and NYC maybe even Texas? I know that Aspire got carriage on the Dallas system yet most of the rest of Texas doesn't have it except for El Paso and Greenville.
