Channel Lineup Changes & Additions

Click for full size
Found this in the Gazette today 5/22. Now it's not for any of the larger cities, but if these new HD channels are being added in these cities, then I would assume they will be added to Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo, Des Moines markets and more.

BTN-HD
Discovery HD
TLC HD
Animal Planet HD
Fox News HD
Lifetime HD
Looks like you could also get these channels with just a QAM tuner in your HDTV also.

ADDED: added "channels to the title

Yes, next month they will begin putting all of the family cable tier in the clear.

We can get the digital channels(80s & 90s) using the QAM tuner, but I don't see anything about the non-local HD channels being put in the clear anytime soon.

They will remove or move all the regular channels to higher tiers, then mysteriously forget to add the HD channels they promised. We are well over a month late in Columbia, MO on the HD channels they promised us. F- mediacom and their piss poor service.

As long as they don't change the no support policy about QAM tuners I have no problems with going clear QAM.

My Tivo got the new channels yesterday, but of course they didn't work. Is it really delayed another month?

They may be adding some of the HDs, but the transition to clear QAM on the SD channels has been delayed until the week of the 6th.

A public notification would have been nice, especially considering that the online TV guide on Mediacom's Iowa City website shows the new lineup. My Tivo is now worthless for the next two weeks.

I just saw an ad on tv that I think said July 7th is the date some analog channels will be moved and new HD channels will be available here in Cedar Rapids.

Beginning July 7 and ending July 10 for Iowa City/Coralville, according to this PDF a CSR just e-mailed me.

I will report the line-up error to TiVo tonight, in hopes they'll fix it back until the new date:

Does anyone know when the Marshalltown/Newton/Grinnell Area will have analog channels change?
Our line up is odd as we get both the DSM & the CR affiliates and I would assume ours is different. What would we get for new channels?

Not really. There's markets in NE IA that get channels from IA & Madison. And also in SE IA along the river they get IA & ILL channels.

Western Iowa has both Omaha & Des Moines local affilates, why I have no idea as SW Iowa isn't even in the Des Moines DMA. Just a waste of bandwith if you ask me.

Rescanned the channels last night here in I.C. on my Olevia with clear QAM tuner and am not seeing anything in the 800 range. Perhaps it's still too early?

I'm also in Iowa City. Channels 51-56 made the move but I'm not getting any of the new digital basic or HD channels. I called customer service. Their response? "They should be there. I don't know what to do to help you."

Ditto here in Cedar Rapids. The channels in the low 50s have moved, but none of the new HD channels are available.

I do have an HD box.
