You never know Kevin. There could be other things in the deal. We will have to wait and see.
post #17822 of 18580
I hope they get the Viacom deal done before they start removing channels. I love my nick
post #17823 of 18580
I haven't seen anything about the Viacom deal, so all we can hope is that no news is good news. I would say however that if things weren't going well we would have heard about it. Don't worry David, if someone hears/sees any news it will be posted here smile.gif.
post #17824 of 18580
dotsdavid,

Like Nayan said, if things were going bad, we would have heard about it by now. I do expect a deal and once it's done, that clears the way for HD Nick in the forms of Nick Jr. HD and NickToons HD. I can see both getting added in the first quarter of 2014 along with anything else Viacom is launching in HD.

Kevin,

None of the TWC Midwest systems have WGN America HD except Lincoln, NE. Nowhere does it say that the WGN America agreement only applies to those markets with a Tribune/Local TV station. As for whether this expands WGN America's footprint with TWC is yet to be seen, but the early January notices from TWC might provide some indication.
post #17826 of 18580
It's almost Christmas and I think we've all been good this year, so what would everyone like channel-wise? For me, more Starz HD smile.gif.
post #17827 of 18580
Oriolesmagic/Kevin: We shall see. If Bakersfield gets WGN America, it would be nice to get Nuvo TV (Unlikely as it's MTM) or RFD-TV HD to even things out and get a true national lineup.

Nayan: I would really like Pivot SD/HD. Chiller HD when it launches and I do hope there is an option to add Epix in the Viacom deal. I might consider Movie pass again if they add it. May that Viacom deal also include some HD options for Spike like COPS.

I do think we are going to those HD Starz and may Yimitz have a nice after Christmas Gift with that Thursday notice.
post #17828 of 18580
I think epix is what's holding the deal up sence epix wants to be a premium channel not just a movie pass channel
post #17829 of 18580
I know this may not seem important but another network going HD likely is Estrella TV as TWC in Dallas now has it duplicated on channel 394 and it is listed on their website as HD for that channel oh and right now it is just an SD remap of KMPX TV (Estrella TV) SD. Well was just letting you guys know another channel going HD even if it is OTA. Oh and I guess this station got a renewal with TWC to carry their station because it has popped up on the Greenville TX system on channel 23 SD / 720 HD but it requires a digital tv, cable box, or cable card device.

Still waiting on to see if TWC Dallas is going to add Ovation HD. I can hope that TWC Dallas adds This TV network after the renewal with Tribune? Also the viacom channels aren't likely to be pulled unless Viacom throws a tantrum on December 30th/31st
post #17830 of 18580
Just got word: John Ourand tweeted that a deal between TWC and Viacom was reached and includes Epix. This is awesome news!!
post #17831 of 18580
Here it is. Great find Nayan.

http://www.deadline.com/2013/12/viacom-add-epix-to-lineup/

This deal now not only puts Nick Jr. HD and Nick Toons HD in play but also EPIX.

We could see all of this by the first quarter of next year.

Assuming we get The Starz HD in our notice, the only major thing we would be missing is AXS.TV/HDNet Movies unless you also consider TheBlaze To Be Major.

I'll take AXS.TV/HDNet Movies thank you biggrin.gif.
post #17833 of 18580
I hope epix joins the movie pass instead of being a premium channel
post #17834 of 18580
Nayan: You never know what might happen there They will eventually want to get back some of the cable co's they lost.

dotsdavid: That would be nice to get it on Movie Pass like Dish Network has it on Blockbuster Movie Pass. We shall see.

This does make The Thursday notice more exciting although I doubt it gets updated to set an addition date for this and HD Nick's.

nice to wake up to this deal smile.gif I knew that they would come to an agreement since CBS and Viacom are controlled by the same empire. I am just shocked that my area got a local channel in HD without notice lol they day before Christmas eve although they are still in the process of adding it they have it on QAM 18-2? as my QAM tuner remaps it to the correct over the air channel but I get scrambled or poor signal banner on the screen LOL!
post #17836 of 18580
The only surprise is were getting EPIX although we knew that could be part of the deal.

Nice to know Estella might be available in HD. Hopefully, the other sub channels follow it although the local affiliate might need to play a role here.
post #17837 of 18580
To all just to wish everyone a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS , special thanks to everyone that's makes this forum great by taking their time and efforts to input notices.

TO ALL A MERRY CHRISTMAS , HOPE ALL YOUR WISHES COME TRUE
post #17838 of 18580
The envy of the country is about to get even better.

I wonder if you'll get Epix, Epix 2 and Epix Drive-In. The only providers that carry Epix 2 are Verizon and Dish Network. Both have it in HD. Drive-In is SD only I believe, and only on Dish. Charter didn't add Epix 2 in all its movie channel glory.

It looks like it will be a good start to 2014 for you guys. I'm also figuring Logo HD will be in play when it launches. Centric HD is a mystery, as Dish says they have it, as does Google Fiber. The new TWC agreement will tell us.

Merry Christmas everyone!
post #17839 of 18580
A very Merry Christmas to all my AVS friends!

A side note: if you live in Melbourne and your cable was out, it was due to a huge accident in the Sarno/Croton area. It took my power out for about 5 hours, but everything should be back and running by 8.
post #17840 of 18580
feb1003: Merry Christmas to you too and thanks for always posting The Bakersfield notices.

oriolesmagic: Definitely is. If anything else Viacom like Logo is HD, we will likely get it next quarter after the likely Starz HD update. We will see on Epix Drive-In. Merry Christmas to you too.

Nayan! Merry Christmas and I saw that on the news. Very bad accident.
post #17841 of 18580
Merry Christmas smile.gif

I think TWC/BHN areas should on the lookout for:
Nicktoons HD
Nick Jr. HD
MTV2 HD
TV Land HD
Military Channel HD
WGN America HD
Epix HD
Epix 2 HD

in the new year smile.gif

I still wonder how much longer TWC plans to stiil add in SD only new channels? I am going to assume not long? I would think Viacom would want their channels in HD in all systems that can handle the new channels?
post #17842 of 18580
Merry Christmas to you too Kevin! I think we'll be getting the Viacoms in HD probably in the first quarter of the year. I do not think Military Channel is even offered in HD as I haven't seen it anywhere. It would be nice though as I geek out over that kind of stuff smile.gif.

It is indeed in HD. BHN has Military Channel HD, for one, and some TWC systems already have it. TX and the Midwest are the exceptions. Charter has it, and Antietam Cable has it too here in MD.

Some areas will see a ton more HD than that, Oceanic in Hawaii is missing all the Viacom channels. Some areas of TX are missing Nickelodeon HD, VH1 HD and BET HD, so all those should be fixed as well.
post #17844 of 18580
Doh! I think he might have meant Military History. We do indeed have Military Channel HD smile.gif. That's what I get for not fully reading biggrin.gif.

no I meant Military Channel HD LOL! not Military History HD
post #17846 of 18580
Ah, so you meant for you're area. Gotcha smile.gif. I need more coffee lol!
post #17847 of 18580
Kevin: I totally agree. Epix 3 HD too.

It is time they got a national lineup and added the HD with the SD channel like Bright House does on most occasions.

Nayan: I think you were thinking of Military History HD. I do love having Military Channel HD. Some good stuff on there.

Oriolesmagic: Definitely!

Epix 3 is titled Drive-In and is only SD on Dish. That's the only provider who has it that I've seen.

Mediacom, Suddenlink, Cox and Charter do not have Epix 2 in any form. Cox and Charter carry the main channel everywhere, Mediacom and Suddenlink in select markets.

Military History HD was supposed to launch a while back on Buckeye Cable in Toledo, but never did. They since removed Military Channel HD as well for whatever reason. I do think it's a possibility to launch in 2014.

Sorry orioles, you are mistaken...& I do have DISH...

Epix 3 IS in HD (& SD) on DISH & is a TOTALLY separate channel from Epix Drive-In, which is only in SD. (just to be clear, DISH also has 1 & 2 in HD & SD)
If you go to their schedule page, you'll see this for yourself:

oriolesmagic: Military History HD could launch. If it does, the new A&E deal would allow for a quick pickup.

I bet we get all of the Epix Channels.

dishrich: Do you have the Blockbuster Movie Pass On Dish?
