I had a so so thanksgiving mixed really had a family emergency and tried to brave the caotic crowds at Walmart well I passed up on a good offer though frown.gif didn't have the money but someone stopped me in the parking lot and gave me one of the $98 garunteed 32" HDTV price cards due to them being in line and they got the card due to the store running out well I gave it to someone hopefully they use it as they said that sounded like a good deal to them smile.gif

thank goodness I have all of my Christmas shopping done! Under $200 too smile.gif

I saved a ton probably about $200 smile.gif

I am anticipating a good notice for North Texas on monday smile.gif

I thought it was interesting that I got an offer for a 32" inch TV but couldn't get it due to having to buy other stuff. I know family members that I would have given it to if I had the money.

How was everyone else's thanksgiving? I spent it with family and had a good time for the most part except for the emergency. I really didn't watch tv this thanksgiving. I was too busy with other stuff.

I really don't need another TV but I would have gone for if it was a samsung TV and I had the money.

Still I am thankful that I have at least 150 HD channels because I know of areas that don't have HD or cable available at all.

Kevin,

I hope all is alright with the family.

The sounds good about the Shopping and the good deed you did.

I'm done with my shopping myself.

Hopefully, you'll get a nice notice. I'm about to post Indiana's.

Here is Indiana's notice

http://www2.indystar.com/webcat/classified/adshow?category=Public+Notices&keyword=bright+house

It's confirmed we will get IndiePlex HD and RetroPlex HD too as Michigan already has both so it wasn't in their notice. They also have the other Encores being added on Dec 9 with Encore Black HD and the Plex HD.

Oh Kevin frown.gif. I'm sorry to hear about the family emergency and I hope everything turns out okay. After hearing about all the fights at various Wall-Marts I'm glad you made it out in one piece!

My Thanksgiving was spent on a site called Cheap A$$ Gamers, as they were updating the deals at Amazon so that's how I did my shopping. I cooked a nice dinner of Salmon and salad and of course football was involved smile.gif.

I hope everyone else had a great Thanksgiving.
post #17705 of 18580
Here is Orlando's Notice

MTM Agreements

Expire December 31, 2013

Viacom Suite
Fox Life
TVE Internacional

Expire on January 1, 2014

WGN America
YES Network

Note: The WGN America line in the paragraph says may cease carriage. The wording sounds more serious than YES Network's. It's on the Michigan Notice that Yimitz uploaded on the previous page if you want to read it.

Hopefully, they can reach renewals with all of these providers.

Moving on..........................

I'm going to do this by dates as it could get confusing

On or after December 6

The following services will be added to the SDV System

Al Jazeera America SD/HD Channel 50/1223

On or after December 9

By Channels it says SDV system but on the two OD's it just says added to the channel lineup.

Encore Action HD Movie Pass Channel 1382
Encore Classic HD Movie Pass Channel 1379
Encore Black HD Movie Pass Channel 1383
Encore Suspense HD Movie Pass Channel 1381
MoviePlex HD Movie Pass Channel 1391
RetroPlex HD Movie Pass Channel 1386
IndiePlex HD Movie Pass Channel 1387
Encore On Demand Movie Pass Channels 395 & 1395
MoviePlex On Demand Movie Pass Channels 396 & 1396

On or after January 1, 2014

The following services will be added to The SDV System

El Rey SD/HD Channels 940/1940
Ovation SD/HD Channels 160/1277
Smithsonian Channel Channel 370

Effective December 31, 2013

SoapNet goes bye-bye.

Considering that it was supposed to end almost two years ago, it shows how slow ESPN was to get everyone on board for Disney Junior.

My mom was not happy about the news but now I can call her and let her know the officially pull date.

On or after January 1, 2014

ShopNBC becomes ShopHQ.
Investigation Discovery moves to The Standard Tier but no channel relocation. This is due to the new Discovery Agreement and well deserved for such a good channel.

On or after January 13, 2014

Bright House is changing the names of some equipment and services

Digital Tier/Digital Basic Tier will be renamed to Premier TV Service
Turbo will renamed to Lightning 30
Converter will be renamed to Standard Box
HD Converter will be renamed to HD Box
Combo will be renamed to Bundle
Navigator will be renamed to Digital Guide

Really? They needed to list these with the new name in bold? Really?

That's all folks.

What is a DTA? Is this a tuning adapter? Is this something that could be purchased, or only leased?
post #17707 of 18580
This notice did not offer many surprises thanks to The Michigan and Indiana notices.

I did get the HD numbers for The 7 new Movie Pass Channels correctly thanks to how they match up the Movie Pass SD section. This saved me some time with the chart.

Over the next month, there are 11 HD channels launching.

It starts with GAC HD (Previous Notice) and Al-Jazerra America HD next week.

Then, the following week, we get all of those HD Movie Pass Channels with the OD's

and it ends with El Ray HD and after exactly one year away, the return of Ovation HD.

This does not include Willow Cricket HD which seems to be delayed.

It's definitely a good way to end the year. Let's just hope nothing gets pulled and it does seem The Viacom Suite, WGN America and YES Network will be on the ones to watch here.
post #17708 of 18580
I guess they really wanted you to notice it! biggrin.gif

It is a good way to end the year though, so I'm pretty happy. Getting a couple of the deals out of the way opens up some new possibilities for next year as well as the addition of more Starz. I am really hoping the Viacom negotiations do not turn into a pissing match, as that's the last thing either of them need after the last fiasco.

It's like a tiny converter box, about the size of a Roku or a little bigger than a deck of cards. You'll need one of those to receive BH programming if you do not already have a converter box or Cable-card as most all of the clear QAM channels will be scrambled.

If I bought one on eBay, would this work? Or do I need to get one from BH?
post #17711 of 18580
You have to get it from BH. If you already have their TV service then you can get two free for a year, otherwise it's $2/month.

Well, ours was good except for a bout with lake-effect snow* on our traditional 120-mile drive up north to the in-laws. This was made up for by my sister-in-law's cooking, and the fact that I got to watch the Lions game for the first time since the OTA digital conversion (they now have Dish).

Traffic on the way home was much heavier than normal, no doubt due to all the stores opening late in the day. We passed a Walmart whose parking lot was full, and cars waiting just to get into the lot.

* (My apologies for using this word in the Orlando section.)
post #17713 of 18580
Never apologize for using the word snow smile.gif. I do miss it sometimes. I'm glad you made it home safely though and you could watch the Lions stomp the Packers (my son was not happy lol) biggrin.gif.

Hopefully my aunt will be okay Nayan smile.gif

Oh guys I waited until almost 9pm to go shopping at walmart after the frenzy was almost over smile.gif besides I got a lot of the black friday deals last friday when walmart discounted a lot of things that were the same prices as last night. I went to toys r us and their black friday was today and not last night none of their deals were good boo! Walmart was packed so I just went and got bop it and something else and did the self checkout which was quick. I then went to McDonalds in the store and ate and then high tailed it to kohl's where they were having a huge sale and the line moved pretty fast. So yeah no black friday frenzy for me. Last year or the year before last someone got stabbed at the Walmart I went to but they had a lot more security this year smile.gif

Oh and thanks to the riots no-one is allowed to go into electronics unless they are buying a big ticket item on black-friday.

Oh guys I figured that there would be fights over black friday items so that is why I went last week and got the remaining items last night. I will tell you guys I have a lot of the popular board games, hot wheels and other things. Sorry guys I am just in the holiday spirit to giving family things for christmas smile.gif
post #17715 of 18580
I hope so too Kevin. And never apologize for being a giving person! The world could use a lot more of those smile.gif.

I scored some good deals yesterday on Amazon and today I will head out to Wal-Mart to buy gift cards to donate to the girls ranch.

Nayan but I was given a once in a lifetime deal and I really could have used that $98 TV smile.gif my living room TV has a burn in spot where someone washed it with cleaner. I already have 3 32" 720p HDTVs so I am okay but if I had the money I would have gotten it. I mispoke I spent about $150 total and that was getting things for about 12 people. I was catching things on sale for $5 here and there and hot wheels were 60 cents a piece. I think the most expensive items I got where $15 a piece. Everything was on sale except for 1 item. I think I did good knowing I probably won't have the money closer to Christmas purchase the things. Oh Nayan your going to love this I had to go get pillows at Kohl's smile.gif 50% off smile.gif

yeah really good deals but hey I got mine early so I didn't miss out. When I went to Walmart yesterday the $5 games were obliterated as well at Toys R Us. Also the $3 hasbro flash games were gone. Hot Wheels singles were gone except for about 10 or so of them. I got 11 last week and had a good variety to choose from.

Oh Nayan I was too busy yesterday heck I missed the Texas Longhorns game along with the Cowboys. I went to Walmart twice once around 2pm took the cousins shopping while they waited on thanksgiving dinner to be done. Wouldn't let the young ones miss out on the fun would I wink.gif and later in the evening. My dad made a good turkey too!

Hey Nayan I have actually done pretty good on keeping my costs down about 2 years ago I spent a $1000 on christmas making sure that I got everyone something.

Back to regularly scheduled programming smile.gif

Hey does anyone else here watch regular show? Just wondering I am 23 and love it even though it is a cartoon I think it has teen/adult situations and I can say it is awesome in HD even though it looks like water color paintings that were turned into scenes. Oh I have to say that shows thanksgiving special was cool how everything could go wrong and then it turns out perfect and wind up having dinner with family smile.gif

Kevin: I'm glad you got pretty much everything you wanted to get (even the pillows!). Even though you didn't get the TV I'm sure you made someone's night giving the voucher to them. Overall you did well!

I have not heard of that show, but if it makes you feel better I am well over 40 and enjoy cartoons (especially Spongebob biggrin.gif ).

HD: Not much difference, except they get a couple channel moves. It's nice to see all the areas that we know of getting things at the same time.
post #17719 of 18580
Well gotta hand it to you BH subs...you're the first systems (again) to get yet another new HD channel that is just now being put up in HD - MoviePlex! (On top of GAC, which I would like myself)
Nice to see other cable/sat subs getting Xmas gifts like this. cool.gif And YEA, I'm jealous (again) mad.gif - but I am happy for y'all - Happy Holidays. biggrin.gif

something is up with GSN HD in Texas! Wichita Falls shows it as ch 1106 on MSN TV and Zap 2 it while TWC's website shows it as channel 1006. I am wondering if it has launched or will launch on 1/1/14? the Golden Triangle is showing it on channel 1006 on TWC website as well and 1106 on MSN TV and Zap 2 it. I don't think those areas have launched it yet but could have had the data added early to the website? I don't think TWC would only add it in two areas of the state? Not to mention most adds now are state wide.
post #17721 of 18580
Just found this while browsing the forums. Has a date for when this area's Clear-QAM changes:

dishrich: Thanks as always. It's only going to keep coming but once we get Starz HD out of the way, there are no roadblocks for when other stuff becomes available.
post #17723 of 18580
GAC HD Channel 1268 is now up via "The Trick". For "Trick" info, please send me a PM.

Al-Jazeera and The Encore/Plex HD channels are not up yet.

It was leaked a little over a week ago that GAC HD would launch on 12/3 which is this Tuesday.

Al-Jazeera HD is scheduled to launch on Friday with the Encore and Plex HD's scheduled scheduled for a week from tomorrow although some might launch a little later in Michigan.

Kevin, according to my database, Wichita Falls and Beaumont are the only TWC TX systems that have had GSN HD before.
post #17725 of 18580
GAC hd is up in Indiana do you guys have in Florida yet
post #17726 of 18580
dotsdavid,

No, only when I do "The trick".

Since Indy and Michigan have been getting updates right before us, this means that 12/3 launch date for Orlando is looking pretty likely.

It's the first in many HD channels coming over the next week.

- Al-Jazeera HD is coming on Friday
- 4 HD Encores/3 Plex HD plus Encore On Demand and MoviePlex On Demand are coming next week at this time although there is that on or after date.
post #17727 of 18580
well got today's notice and it mentioned:

El Rey SD and HD
SD: 156 (Greenville) 272 (Dallas)
HD: 792 (Greenville) 729 (Dallas) I am almost most certain the Greenville notice of 792 is a typo and it is actually 729 like Dallas as both areas a had G4 HD on 729 and now it is open.

Smithsonian SD:
111 (Greenville) 212 (Dallas)

Ovation SD:
144 (Greenville) 295 (Dallas)

nothing on Ovation HD maybe it will show up on channel 707 on January 1st as that is the old number in Dallas and it is open still?

Still wondering if my area is going to get a surprise update with new Encore and Starz HD channels? I noticed the TWC website mentions the movie pass as having new channels but fails to mention what they are.
post #17728 of 18580
Kevin,

A leaker did not know about our Encore/Plex Update so it could be a late update.

Then again, we get a lot more HD than you but do kinda envy you for having Pivot HD. It's the only thing available that I want and do not have.
post #17729 of 18580
GAC HD is now up on Channel 1268
post #17730 of 18580
What do you think the chances are that we'll get Al Jazeera a wee bit early using 'the trick'? smile.gif
