Fremont Not Dropping All Analog Channels
For those that were concerned about the dropping of all analog channels in Fremont,
I asked Mr. J. for clarification and here is what really is happening....
WE ARE NOT DROPPING ALL analog channels in Fremont, or anywhere else for
We are moving CSPAN 2 to digital tier on 10/2/07, launching CSPAN 3 on
Digital that same day....and, wait for it...using the CSPAN bandwidth to
launch TBS HD on 10/3 and preparing the way for the other HD channels
later in the month.
The phone calls are being made to encourage customers with out set-top
boxes to get them if they want to continue to see CSPAN2/CSPAN3.
We will be moving a couple of other channels in October, including Cal
Channel and TV Guide, to the digital tier...and, wait for it...so we can
launch another HD channel in December and another one in January
(contracts permitting). We will do similar outreach efforts, including
calls to customers, each time we make one of these changes.
So it's just moving some analog channels to digital and freeing up bandwidth
so they can add some new HD channels
