IFC shows commercials, but does not edit any movies.
post #17672 of 18584
Satch: I think Viacom will be ok as well. A deal is more likely after the hit from The CBS blackout this past summer. Once it's done, Nick Jr. HD, Nick Toons HD and anything else that launches in HD is in play.

Chiller HD would be nice and it might be the most high profile channel not in HD. I'm really hoping it finally happens.

IFC does not edit, FearNet does and does not. It's really hit and miss with them. Not completely sure on Sundance though.

I am switching providers to BHN, but a little disappointed in the deal I've been offered. It'll only be about $25-30 savings a month, yet $10-15 more per month than my daughter pays for BHN, even though she gets Lightning vs. the Turbo I've been offered AND she has the BHN-provided router (I'll have to provide my on to keep prices down).

Okay looks like TWC posted the legal notice for the RGV a day earlier than normal this week smile.gif

Texas is getting:
Al Jazeera America SD
El Rey SD
El Rey HD
Smithsonian SD
Ovation SD
VOD preview is being removed from channel 699? Wondering if they are getting ready for ODN 7.0?

I think Al Jazeera HD and Ovation HD will be added though unannounced. Kind of like they did with Sprout. wink.gif

Here's the Michigan notice, delivered along with 87 pounds of Black Friday sales flyers. Click on the image for the larger version.

Best wishes to everyone for a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving.

post #17678 of 18584
Awesome Yimitz thank you for posting this! You have a great Thanksgiving too smile.gif.
post #17679 of 18584
Wow!

Were getting The Encore and Plex HD's.

Orlando will likely also get IndiePlex and RetroPlex HD. It shows that leaker did not have everything.

No MTM surprises although Jewelry TV is not listed.

As expected, The Viacom Suite, YES Network and WGN America again are.

It looks like the HD Pak channels are moving to new locations too.

All in all, this is great news and definitely upgrades Movie Pass.
post #17680 of 18584
Yes it does! Now the Movie Pass won't feel like such a waste with more HD added.

I'm sure a deal will be made for the Viacom suite before the end of the year.

Was MLB Network on there last time, or is that a new add to the list? NHL Network has been on there for what seems like forever.
post #17681 of 18584
I've seen MLB Network on TWC ones although BHN's just show Extra Innings and Strike Zone. They are all likely tied together.

NHL Network/Center Ice has been there for a while but I doubt there is a drop dead since people have already bought Center Ice for the year. Something should get done during the offseason.

I doubt Viacom goes dark after the TWC spat. However, YES Network could get tricky and WGN America may or may not have a drop dead.

In the end, Movie Pass definitely got upgraded with this announcement and Starz will not be far behind new year along with Nick Jr. and Nik Toons Hd after The Viacom deal.

After all the Encore and Plexs are added shortly after the new year, BHN Orlando will have 232 HD Channels.smile.gif
post #17682 of 18584
You're the envy of the nation again, as always. I figure the Starz HD can't be far behind either. Classic HD and Suspense HD have their first providers as they launch in December, although I suspect Charter will have them too.
post #17683 of 18584
Yep, we have a bunch of HD channels. How many of them we all actually watch is another story wink.gif.

Starz is the biggest hole we have as far as HD channels go. Once that get's filled then everything else turns into wants, like Chiller HD when it launches and Pivot, along with maybe getting AXS and HDNet Movies back.
post #17684 of 18584
We definitely are OM. Charter is making strides though.

Once Starz HD and Nick Jr. HD/Nick Toons HD are added, it clears out the major stuff. Hopefully, they will offer a free preview of Movie Pass.

Of course, HD holdouts like Chiller, Discovery Fit and Health, Viacom Channels and ESPN Classic could launch but it will soon become those or new additions like Pivot, Revolt, etc.

AXS.TV/HDNet Movies have been gone almost 4 1/2 years. You have to think they will eventually make concessions as AXS.Tv does seem to be having any luck getting back the systems they lost years ago. EPIX would be a big add as well but do not think anything is cooking there.

HD should keep coming though as we get closer to that all HD lineup.

BTW: No notice for Orlando today. This was not a surprise given I could not pull Indiana's notice off The IndyStar this morning. I'm betting it comes Friday but do have channel number estimates based on the SD channels on the HD list in my sig.smile.gif

Epix could come in a Viacom deal. DirecTV's deal gave them the option to add Epix, an option they have not yet taken. Their last Starz/Encore deal was supposed to bring the Plex channels, perhaps they will launch with the new D14 satellite next year. I'm hoping when that happens, DirecTV gets everything Bright House has.

HDNet Movies is a great channel, they air a lot of great movies. There are some days, like yesterday, where I almost recorded every movie they aired.

ESPN Classic will likely not launch in HD, it's rumored to be used as a tool to create the SEC Network next year. ESPN Classic had a lot more value when they had the rights to more things, but as each professional league started their own network, that content dried up. Each of those networks air old content, especially NBA TV.

Discovery Fit & Health is basically a clearinghouse for all other Discovery programming, so just about everything on there is HD anyway, so there's no reason it can't launch. Considering TWC's deal, I don't know why you guys don't have Revolt already.
post #17686 of 18584
The option to add Epix could be in the deal. We will see. If it was added to Movie Pass, I would consider getting it. That D14 satelite might net you guys quite a bit of HD.

I've heard about HDNet Movies. People rave about it but have never seen it. If they would allow TWC/BHn to add it on Movie Pass and/or HD Pak without AXS.TV, they would do it but the holdup is over AXS.TV.

Where have you heard about ESPN Classic becoming SEC Network? ESPN Classic does air a lot of retro ESPN content and those docs. I do like how the classic games left those networks though.

Discovery Fit and Health is the last Discovery English network to launch in HD. No reason why it will not come with all the new VOD coming from the Discovery deal.

No idea on Revolt but it could happen hopefully with Pivot.
post #17687 of 18584
I tried a trial of Epix on my 360 and enjoyed it very much. That would be nice if the Viacom deal includes it.

Every time I go out of town I get to watch AXS/HDNet Movies. I really do miss those channels as they have some great offerings. I need to go out of town more I think lol smile.gif.

I was surprised we didn't get Revolt when it launched. They made a pretty big deal about it when it went live.

It has been more rumors than anything confirmed, but since bandwidth concerns are out there for cable and satellite, and the channel has had no carriage fee increases and very low viewership, it's been rumored that both ESPN Classic and ESPNEWS are headed for a format change. Now that you see some live sports being shown on ESPNEWS, I think it's possible ESPNEWS is renamed ESPN3, and a lot of that content is cleared on there. Having SportsCenter and ESPN/ESPN2 shows air constantly over there isn't doing much, and in the age of smartphones, people don't need SportsCenter to catch highlights or scores.
post #17689 of 18584
Who knows on EPIX although it does intrique me. Putting it with Movie Pass would be nice.

I think AXS.TV/HDNet Movies will eventually cave. It's likely the main thing we do not have after we get the HD Starz.

Revolt probably is a later add option especially after The HD Starz and Nick Jr. HD and Nick Toons HD are added.

Those ESPN rumors hav been going on for a few years now but only last heard them with LongHorn Network before it launched.
post #17690 of 18584
Cox has it on Movie Pass, so it's not unprecedented to do it that way.
post #17691 of 18584
AXS.TV?

Them insisting to have it on Digital Basic is what led to it being dropped.

No, Epix is on Movie Pass with Cox.

Oriolesmagic,

Got ya.

We will see what happens over this next month.

Happy Thanksgiving smile.gif.
post #17695 of 18584
I'm thinking about adding Bright House service at my house. If I add an internet only plan will I be able to pick up ClearQam channels on the coax, or is the basic TV package required?

Basic cable required and a BH supplied DTA will be required soon to tune to any channel.
post #17697 of 18584
So a DTA is needed to get ClearQam even if you have a QAM tuner? Does this effectively mean there are no ClearQAM channels on BHN? I thought the DTA was for non-QAM tuner sets or to tune Premium services.
post #17698 of 18584
To everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving
post #17699 of 18584
Yes, you will need a DTA. The ClearQAM channels will be going away soon (I'm guessing at the beginning of the year sometime). It's a tiny box, about the size of a Roku and hook-up is very easy. With the FCC allowing companies to scramble their signals, even locals, it was inevitable that everyone would need some kind of box in the future.
post #17700 of 18584
I hope everyone had a Happy ThanksGiving!

I'll be posting the notices tomorrow.
