I too am very disappointed to see HDNet go. I didn't even have a clue it was being dropped until I went to make sure Inside MMA was set to record tonight. Inside MMA, DREAM, and all the other great MMA program is the only reason I added this tier to my package. And to see it go without even being informed beforehand is rather upsetting.
Just another reason to switch to DirecTV and see how that goes I guess. I'll save around 50 bucks a month for the first 12 months and about 5 bucks after that, still be able to keep Road Runner as my ISP, and get a lot more value for my money.
At the very least I am dropping this tier for sure. No reason to keep it anymore.

I guess I'm stuck with the greedy TWC.
You can keep road runner without having cable TV. I called last night, before I even knew HDNet was gone because I have been thinking about switching to DirecTV for some time now, and they didn't even question me when I asked how much my bill would be for just internet access if I was to drop cable TV. And the surprising thing is that it was only around 3-6 bucks more than what I am paying for road runner right now, which just could have been them giving me a quote without taking the credit for owning my own modem off.
