This just proves its all about the benjamins!!1
if theres room to add those channels, they could give the people paying for premiums ALL THE CHANNELS they pay for[these people should come first]
-

on a side note sports and info was always a rip to me so lets take some channels that people actually watch and force people to shell out more money

PS: wasn't there a franchise rule that TBS had to be on broadcast basic?

Definitely looks like a cash grab to me.

What belongs in the Sports & Information Pak more?
ESPN or Bio and H2?

ESPN will never be on a digital tier due to contract and the oters mentioned are info channels

In other markets that is the case, looks like AZ is reorganizing to match the rest of the country. It just stinks that Bio, H2 and DIY have always been in the Variety Pak here in AZ.

If that is the case Cox AZ will probably move DIY & DIYHD to the Info Pak also.

Highly unlikely. DIYHD is in plus pak along with other channels that many pay for but don't get which is another cash grab.
too much more of this crap and I may have to get satellite a try and kick cox video to the curb[plus I wouldn't have to deal with video sound dropouts, glitching, freezing everytime it rains]

dvd536,

Have you checked out your cabling? If you only experience that when it rains it sounds like moisture might be getting in one of the cables causing some degradation. It might be worth it to check it out.

Thanks,

I do not receive OutdoorHD even though it is in the Plus Pak, because I do not subscribe to the Sports & Info Pak.

Channel available with subscription to Cox Plus Package, Cox HD service and subscription to corresponding programming Pak or premium channel.
