I wish we could opt-out. It would probably knock $10/month off my bill.

there is more value in the "Gold" package by adding the remaining SD premium movie channels in HD.

Are the remaining SD movie channels available in HD anywhere? I kind of think it would be cool to add all the movie channel west coast feeds to the packages. It would double the selection, but would give the packages more value. Yes, it's 3 hour delay but who cares? You'd have double the number of channels to choose from.

and a chance to watch a missed movie, 3 hours later.
ive seen the SD ones CV carries, presented in HD on other source providers, like starz cinema in HD for example.
maybe wilth See Profile is reading this, maybe not but really, all those of us that do subscribe to the silver/gold package, its just pure income for CV, so please give us the value we deserve with these packages, give us the remaining SD premium movie channels in HD, thank you.

I don't know but it would be nice to have ESPN Goal Line for college football today.

Im hopeful that the new deal they announced with CBS last mpnth will at least mean the rest of the Showtime channels are delivered in HD: Showtime Beyond, Showtime Women and Showtime Next.

It doesn't look like it, based on what it says on the TV to Go page:

You also can watch it if you steal cable from your neighbors, but his question did not seem to ask for illegal answers, instead asking if his optimum ID would have permissions for it. He could already get someone's credentials for ESPN3 if that was his goal.

not if the QAM channel is encrypted and/or the box and NDS card in possession are not authorized.

You may be able to watch ESPN3 w/o a TV subscription. At my work we have fios and can watch ESPN3 but not the WatchESPN channels (which rebroadcast regular ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU online).

This is also what I see stated on ESPN3's FAQ after now checking. Thanks for clarifying.

I didn't have to do anything. I selected a game from the ESPN3 archive and it played. The top right of the web page said "powered by optimum".

On the upcoming schedule there are no "key" symbols on the ESPN3 events, just the other watch ESPN channels. So we may be limited to ESPN3 for now since that is just based on your ISP while the other channels require you to have a TV subscription to them.

When I try to access any video I get this message. We are unable to confirm ESPN3 access. Please verify that you are a customer of an ESPN3 affiliated provider. I then click on Cablevision from the drop down menu and that as far as it goes.

Click for full size
It's still not fully available. Just tried to watch PTI Live on ESPN and when I tried to select a service provider, Cablevision or Optimum is not listed.

I was able to view a cricket match on my computer without any login prompts. When I tried my Watch ESPN app on my iphone it wont work because it doesnt list my provider. From espn:

quote:
Cablevision internet subscribers now have access to ESPN3 content from a computer, but it is not available on the WatchESPN mobile application. Please note, if you are a Cablevision video subscriber with ESPN channels, you will have access to WatchESPN channels on the desktop and the mobile application soon.
