Time Warner Cable’s agreements with programmers to carry their services routinely expire. We are usually able to obtain renewals or extensions of such agreements, and carriage of programming services is discontinued only in rare circumstances. The following agreements with programmers are due to expire soon, and we may be required to cease carriage of one or more of these services in the near future: A&E, A&E HD, Azteca America, Biography, Biography HD, Crime & Investigation, Crime Investigation HD, E! Entertainment, E! Entertainment HD, Esquire, Esquire HD, Gol TV, Gol TV HD, History en Espanol, History Channel, History Channel HD, H2, H2 HD, Lifetime, Lifetime HD, LMN, LMN HD, Lifetime Real Women, MLB Strike Zone, Military History channel, Music Choice, NHL Network, NHL Network HD, NHL Center Ice, Once Mexico, You Too TV, Zap2It.
In addition, from time to time we make certain changes in the services that we offer. On October 10th, Univsion Deportes was added on Ch. 838 to the DigitalVariety and Nuestra Tele tiers. Univision Telenovelas was added on Ch. 840 to the Nuestra Tele tier. On October 21st, Revolt was added on Ch. 264 to the Digital Variety Tier.
The following changes are planned; On or after December 5, WACY HD will be added on ch 1013(Green Bay/Appleton, De Pere, MarinetteMenominee, Neenah/Menasha, Oshkosh). In Marinette/Menominee, the following changes are planned: WGN will move from ch 98 to 9; TWCT will move from ch 9 to ch 3 and will remain in digital format only. In order to view TWCT on a digital television or other device that includes a QAM tuner (a “ClearQAM device”), you will need to go into the settings menu on your ClearQAM device and perform a new channel scan in order to resume viewing TWCT. On or after December 10th, Music Choice channels will be rearranged and four new Music Choice channels will be available: Teen MC, Pop Rhythmic, Pop Country and Y2K. On or after December 23rd, Smithsonian will be added to Digital Variety on channel 145. In addition, Smithsonian HD will become available on Digital Variety, in addition to HD Pass tier. On or after December 23rd, Soapnet will no longer be available. Destination America and Investigation Discovery may be repositioned to Standard Cable. The channel will continue to be available in digitial format only.
The new services listed below will require two-way capable digital cable ready equipment, such as a Time Warner Cable-provided set-top box or a CableCARD-equipped Unidirectional Digital Cable Product (UDCP) used in conjunction with a Tuning Adapter. Other UDCPs may not be able to access these services without additional equipment, such as a set-top box: Univision Telenovelas, Revolt, Smithsonian, Destination America, and Investigation Discovery.
Not all services available in all areas. Restrictions may apply.
I would expect Ovation by January 1st, 2014. Hopefully, TWC will put it on the Digital Variety Tier instead of Digital Choice. Digital Choice, does not seem to provide much added value with only a smaller amount of channels compared to Digital Variety Package. Here in Wisconsin, Digital Choice is $5.95 extra per month.
Not sure about Brighthouse, but TWC is changing the names of their package tiers in many areas beginning with next month's bill. See here for an explanation of the new package names. There are no price increases or anything like that with these name changes. See here for more:
Al Jazerra America I read is set to launch in most TWC New York and LA Markets by the end of the year and to have broadband distribution by March. Maybe The Blaze currently wants too much money for TWC to do a launch right now?
Does Chiller HD even exist anywhere? That would be an awesome channel to have in HD!
