well I had a feeling that QVC plus was going to launch this month as a press release stated that TWC and Bright house have a deal for QVC plus and that bright house was launching it in September. Hey they only time I bought anything from one of those shopping channels is when I bought the today's special on HSN to get my dad a Cleveland Browns through blanket
I think I was watching the HD version when I did
Oh I expect QVC HD to go almost complete carriage on TWC in next two months as the Carolina's are getting it on November 5th and could see it landing on channel 248 Dallas next to QVC Plus in November. I am shocked that the rest of Texas is getting HSN HD
as parts of the state got HSN HD while others got QVC HD Laredo being one of them which is an odd ball system as they have CSPAN HD which most of Texas doesn't not along with some of the rarer HD channels in Texas.
Oh TWC backed off of offering DTAs to the really small systems nationally instead they are getting basic convertors for 2 years free as only their PEG channels are going digital only and the biggest gainers of bandwidth are Yuma Arizona 6 analog slots and Owensboro KY 5 analog slots
but the bad thing is that it is only 1 free per household probably to get rid of the SD boxes left in stock and after that start using HD boxes if needed. Oh and the boxes will be $1.50 after 2 years as I am guessing they are going to have VOD, PPV if available and they may be charging more for the guide and access to those services.
