I haven't seen Revolt on any of the Midwest lineups in SD or HD. I have seen it on all the rest of the lineups I've checked in CA, TX, the Northeast and the Carolinas. While I think the Cleveland/NEO division is more limited than the others (Still not getting beIn/beIn 2 HD), I think all the Midwest division areas are a bit limited, as they've fallen behind the other markets in HD launches.

Several TWC systems in Texas carry CSPAN HD:

Wichita Falls
Kerrville
Golden Triangle

are the others besides Laredo to carry it.

QVC HD is limited in Texas to Laredo only.

Yes Revolt did launch in the midwest according to the Revolt website in all of the legacy TWC areas pre insight merger in SD and HD. A new legal notice came out today for Clarksburg WV and SDV areas of Midwest National division got:
Univision Deportes
Univision tlNovelas
Revolt

Smithsonian SD is being added and Smithsonian HD is being duplicated in digital basic like I thought it would.

Destination America and Investigation Discovery may be repositioned to expanded basic digital only.

I am thinking Greenville may be getting more HD soon as they put revolt HD on 715 like I mentioned in a previous post and 705-720 are open except 715 which means likely Greenville may be getting more the HD channels that Dallas has soon for the most part also could be new adds as Dallas added Revolt HD in Dallas on 578 meaning we may be getting more HD soon and they started a new block for HD from 578-599?.

Kevin,

If the last parts are from a notice, it's actually some news.

- Smithsonian HD coming off of HD Pak with the SD Channel being added

If Destination and Investigation Discovery are moving packages, this is probably what is being discussed in Discovery renewal talks.

I wish Smithsonian would come off the HD package here. I like that channel but not enough to pay extra bucks for it smile.gif.

I am pretty sure it won't but it will be duplicated into two tiers digital basic and the HD tier so you won't have to have the HD tier. This is almost like beIN Sport HD being added to the HD tier in addition to the Sports tier they just trying to give more options to people who only want certain channels.

Oh and today was the big day that TWC cut some analogs in a few areas smile.gif

And according to TWC's site, it shows no sign of Revolt on any of the Midwest systems.

the Midwest TWC website channel lineups are bad about not posting updates to the website for weeks. I am pretty sure the channel launched in the midwest as the Revolt website mentions it launched in Kansas City, Lincoln, Columbus, and even Cleveland in SD and HD using the channel finder not to mention there was a notice in the Clarksburg WV legal notice that Revolt launched in SD in the Midwest National SDV areas. This launch of Revolt has been pretty bad as their channel lineup finder has some incomplete lineup numbers not to mention the bad info about a wide distribution launch in January 2014 which happened yesterday instead. I don't trust the TWC website for the midwest as they still haven't updated to show Univision Deportes and Univision tlNovelas launching in the midwest and the midwest national SDV systems.

I just checked on my set-top box, and in Cleveland, Revolt is only in SD on channel 264. (My apologies for not changing some of the premium channel names on the document I attached previously.)
post #17499 of 18575
Kevin,

Another notice with that important info on Smithsonian, I.D. and Destination America.

I wonder if a new deal got done with Music Choice.

The MTM list is really outdated though with not only G4 still being there but IFC and WE too.

it is nice to see those areas finally start to prune analogs smile.gif I know my area has dropped down to 58 analogs over the past 5 years from high of 81 analogs.

I am still wondering if Gunnison and Telluride just removed their local access from analog just cause as I would think that they have a lot of QAM slots with Gunnison being rebuilt to 860MHz by TWC from 550MHz and Telluride being at least 750MHz as Telluride from the looks of was rebuilt around 1998-2000 to likely 750MHz. But they don't have as many channels as other areas I believe they still use the older QAM64 modulation on some QAM frequencies instead of QAM256 which has a better bandwidth capacity per 6MHz slice of bandwidth. So they could be eating up a lot of bandwidth if most of their QAMs are still QAM64. I remember seeing a QAM lineup for Telluride on Silicondust a few years ago and they had a few QAM64 carriers then so maybe that is why they don't have too many channels still?

I just got a notice in the mail here in Brevard County, from Bright House to give me the good news that during the week of November 18, 2013, that the following channels will be removed from the SDV system and will therefore once again be available on my cable card television.

Disney HD 1105
MSNBC HD 1218
Comedy HD 1292
Cartoon HD 1282
AMC HD 1355
Golf HD 1154


On another subject, as I have mentioned before, I am happy to see Willow cricket on channel 206 in SD with live cricket matches from around the world. However, on my main television, the programming is displayed as 16x9 material compressed sideways into a 4x3 frame using the full picture height and with black bars each side. Unfortunately neither the DVR nor the television seem to have an option to stretch the picture out sideways to the correct aspect ratio, so I guess I will be watching very thin looking cricketers until the HD version starts up on channel 1165. Strangely enough, the ads mostly are the correct 4x3 material in the 4x3 frame.
post #17502 of 18575
I didn't get one of those notices George so thanks for posting it.

Yeah, Willow looks pretty sad. I wanted to watch it this morning and thought they looked a bit malnourished biggrin.gif. Hopefully the HD version will be available soon.

This small change will make my Recording's much more reliable . Of the 3 channels that I have the most trouble with,2 are on that list. So that is a great first step for me anyways, towards the hopeful end of this SDV fuelled disaster.
post #17504 of 18575
George: Those channels were supposed to move off of SDV on Sept 1.

It will be really nice not to have the SDV go out on Cartoon Network HD and MSNBC HD like it does occasionally at night.

Hopefully, Willow Cricket HD shows up soon so that is crossed off the list. Were also still waiting on HSN2 SD.

Todd: SDV has gotten a lot better over the last few years with each update.

Everyone: Hopefully, Michigan gets that notice a week early so we can get a peek at ours. If not, we wait till next week.

I expect a lot from this notice and believe we will finally get more Starz/Encore/Plex HD.

Only for those of you who use BH issued Cable Boxes (2 way). Those of us who have Media Center PC or use a TiVo have not shared in that improvement due to our requirement of running a Tuning Adapter. I am sure even our success has improved somewhat but my how far it has to go. Ask any Media Center Cable Card user about "Subscription Required". But be aware of the steam of hate that your opening up! That's why we say Death to SDV. One should note that Verizon never used it and Comcast tested it and rejected it. I hope we are in the final days!

Yay! Al Jazeera is coming!! This makes me very happy smile.gif. Of course others are beginning to complain...rolleyes.gif
post #17507 of 18575
No Michigan notice in the newspaper today, contrary to past practice. I will check again on Sunday.
post #17508 of 18575
Thank you for looking Yimitz.
post #17509 of 18575
ToddD: Once they go all digital, they will be able to knock out a bunch of those channels. Hopefully, it does go away one day.

Nayan: I'm very happy for you. That's another HD channel to the count within the next few months.

With Ovation and Al-Jazerra )Current) returning, the two channels that were dropped early this year will return about one year later.

Yimitz: That's ok. Now, I'll see the notice with no preview for the first time in a while on Wednesday or Thursday. Because of this, I'll avoid The IndyStar notice.

I have high hopes for this notice.
post #17510 of 18575
I am so hoping your right HD smile.gif. Getting Ovation back and adding Al Jazeera is a huge deal. Now I'm watching everyone scream because it's not The Blaze biggrin.gif.

the only problem with the press releases lately for TWC is they are making a fatal flaw and keep saying channels will launch in LA and NYC and keep leaving out others areas uh! Hello there are more than the 2-3 Million Subscribers in LA/NYC that TWC has. :P

I'm with you that it would be great to see us get that channel.....But after reading the press release it seems that our wait will continue for some amount of time. We can hope though.smile.gif
post #17513 of 18575
Congratulations all TWC/Bright House customers getting Al Jazeera!smile.gif Hope you get HD as well! smile.gif
post #17514 of 18575
They did say TWC NYC and TWC LA would get it by year's end so it could be a possibility for us.

If we do not get The Starz/Encore/Plex HD, I would think Al-Jazeera America HD, Revolt HD and GAC HD become the most likely options for the 4th quarter. BHN is not going to stiff us and just give us

I hope it's at least the Starz/Encore/Plex HD as it would be nice to knock that off the list.

Well, I'm a pretty patient gal so as long as I know we're getting it I'll be glad to wait for it smile.gif.

The Starz/Encore channels have been a huge hole for awhile so it would be nice to fill those in.

Thank you for posting this Kevin smile.gif.

That huge list of MTM's still get's me. So it looks like Revolt and AJA are two we'll get. Does Hawaii have the extra Starz/Encore channels?
