post #17581 of 18581
Some of the new Northeast division notices are out and in Buffalo and Albany, it says that by December 6th, they will have Aspire SD and HD.

Aspire HD was said to exist when the channel launched, but never came to fruition. The only provider that ever mentioned it being added was Time Warner Cable. Only TWC and Comcast even carry the channel.

I would say this is a new possibility for the BHN areas.

Oriolesmagic: It likely is as if BHN has it in SD and nothing is blocking the HD channel, they usually pick it up. It would be nice to get Aspire HD crossed off.

OM and Kevin: I wonder if they will also roll it out that day for us too.

Regardless, it's nice to keep getting HD.
post #17584 of 18581
And getting HD that we actually will watch is nice too smile.gif.
post #17585 of 18581
True that. I never watch Aspire, will probably never order Starz and am unlikely to get Movie Pass again due to lack of new stuff on FearNet but want that stuff out of the way so there is nothing stopping Chiller HD when it launches and possibly Pivot.

One of the 3 umbrellas of programming will be agreed to for TWC/BHN. Unfortunately, it's the one that is least likely to lead to any new HD channels for most.

H2 HD is only missing in some areas of TX (Wichita Falls) and the former Insight areas.

A lot of areas don't carry Crime & Investigation at all, so there's something for Kevin in Dallas, and a lot of other areas in the state.

The only possibility for everyone else is if the once rumored Military History HD launches.
post #17590 of 18581
Oriolesmagic: This is great news.

I think November 30 was the drop dead and glad this is out of the way.

Military History, Lifetime Real Women and History En Espanol are the only channels not in HD. Maybe these go HD eventually and hopefully Military History will.

One area that we are lacking in is LMN HD OD so maybe we get more of this.

Other than that, I'm happy to see this get done.

I think Discovery will go smoothly but Viacom could get tense.
post #17591 of 18581
With the A&E deal done, here is our Month To Month List

Ecuavisa
GolTV
MLB Extra innings/Strike Zone
Music Choice (Available in HD)
NHL Center Ice/NHL Network
Once TV Mexico
WAPA America
Youtoo
Zap2it (Channel Guide for customers without a box)

Joining The List Soon

The Discovery Networks
The Viacom Suite
Jewelry TV

Based on the notices (I.D. and Destination America possibly moving to Basic), it sounds like The Discovery talks are going well. The only English-Speaking Channel not in HD is Discovery Fit and health and you have to think they probably do it sometime in 2014.

The Viacom ones could be rough. After all, they did have a blackout with Direct TV a few years back. This is holding up Nick Jr. HD, Nick Toons Hd and anything else they plan to launch in HD. A good chunk of the channels not to go HD yet are the Viacom ones.

After these get done, nothing really major will be on the deals.

The HD keeps coming though and it shows no signs of stopping. I just wonder if they will ever get around to adding more Starz/Encore/Plex HD.
post #17592 of 18581
Oh now that is awesome news!

I agree with you HD, I think the Viacom one is going to be rough and will probably go down to the wire. I hope that we don't get into a huge love spat which could lead to us losing channels for awhile. I think that's the last thing either side needs.
post #17593 of 18581
And we do not want Gary getting hell from anyone either.
post #17594 of 18581
The Filipino Channel (channel 980) is free until the 15th so those who have friends/family who were affected by the typhoon can get news and info.
post #17595 of 18581
So they are changing the Encore channels? Not the kind of news I was hoping to receive on my birthday frown.gif.

*************************************

Yup, Al Jazeera, Ovation coming soon. Looks like WGN-America may be on the chopping block. Does BHN carry this channel?

Thrilled that Independent Film Channel comes to Digital Variety! Smithsonian is cool too.

If you have any Music Choice Channels listed as Favorites, do you have to re program those after the line-up change or not? It is hard to read the changes horizontally.

Jack
post #17597 of 18581
Thanks Jack for posting this smile.gif.

Yes we do have WGN here. The only thing I watch is the Cubs games (I know, don't judge!) so if it goes away it's okay with me.

I'm glad to see some of those channels moving off the pack, especially Smithsonian which I love and I'm glad we're getting Ovation back! I'm really looking forward to AJA too.

I am assuming you'll have to re-program your Music Choice favorites. I only have 3 so it'll be easy for me smile.gif.
post #17598 of 18581
Nayan: They are but two more will become available in HD.

Satch: I think you mean Yes Network. Since it's an RSN, it likely has a drop dead date and could be pulled for a bit while any dispute is settled in New York.

Al-Jazeera seems like it has a national Dec 6 rollout date on TWC. BHN might be getting it then too. Were likely getting Ovation back that day too which will be exactly one year since it was dropped.

IFC is already on Digital Basic for us and Smithsonian will too by year's end.

No idea on The Music Choice channels though.

There are a bunch of those typos on the TWC notices.

I don't know why they say Howard Stern on Demand 'might' be removed, it is shutting down next month so I think it's a sure thing smile.gif.

Thanks for pointing out the typos David. I just glanced through and didn't really notice but that's funny!

Anyone close to BHN know when we will be getting the new Navigator cable box software? I've been waiting for a proper 16x9 guide and PIP placement forever.

Channels 1019 & 285 have an announcement that there's a Starz free preview on the beginning Nov 29th. You have to activate it using your remote.

Still waiting patiently for showtime anytime to be supported. It was announced months ago.

According to Gary, you can now use the Watch ESPN Roku app if you have ESPN on your BH cable package.

As far as Showtime Anytime, it's anyone's guess when it'll be available.

Isn't that a lot of wasteful redundancy? If I'm paying for TV, I already have ESPN, so having Watch ESPN to blast over a Roku benefits anyone how?
post #17608 of 18581
There is FAR more content on watchESPN app than you'll find live on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN Deportes, etc. Lots of ESPN3 exclusives.
post #17609 of 18581
Gator06: Probably in the next couple of months.

diesel32: I saw that too. They also have ads promoting Starz but they need to add HD OD and the other 5 HD Starz Channels with maybe the main West Coast feed to get people serious about the package.

On The Aps,I'll probably download some when I upgrade my phone.

Probably some guy in his 'man cave' will be grunting in joy, but I agree with you it is kind of a waste, especially since there's things that we should have had by now like Showtime Anytime.
