surprisingly beIN Sport and beIN deportes have been added to systems that are not in the northeast today on TWC and Brighthouse in SD and HD.

Thank you for all that replied. The original PAC 12 listing was scheduled for Oct. 1 then pushed back to Nov. 1st. So, I guess it will be pushed back again.

As a soccer fan I am excited about beIN, they are all on their way. Promise.

The only channels that were added to TWC in WNY were bein, bein-HD, bein-Spanish, bein-HD Spanish. The other channels as listed were never added on Nov. 1, 2012. The PAC 12 stations were originally suppose to debut on October 1, 2012.

The previously announced launch of the following Pac-12 services will now occur on November 1, 2012 and will launch on the following channel positions: Pac-12 Los Angeles on ch. 370, Pac-12 Los Angeles HD on ch. 390, Pac-12 Arizona on ch. 371, Pac-12 Arizona HD on ch. 391, Pac-12 Washington on ch. 372, Pac-12 Washington HD on ch. 392, Pac-12 Oregon on ch. 373, Pac-12 Oregon HD on ch. 393, Pac-12 Mountain on ch. 374, Pac-12 Mountain HD on ch. 394, Pac-12 Bay Area on ch. 375 and Pac-12 Bay Area HD on ch. 395.

Also on that date, we will launch the following services: NESN on ch. 193, NESN HD on ch. 447, World Fishing Network on ch. 194, World Fishing Network HD on ch. 448, beIN Sports on ch. 449, beIN Sports HD on ch. 429, beIN Sports en Español on ch. 450 and 841 and beIN Sports en Español HD on ch. 430. NESN, NESN HD, World Fishing Network, World Fishing Network HD, beIN Sports and beIN Sports HD will be part of our Sports Pass offering, while beIN Sports en Español and beIN Sports en Español HD will be part of our DTV en Español and El Paquetazo offerings.

Just hoping these don't disappear like MAV-TV-HD, Fox Sports Carolina, Fox Sports South and Fox Sports West like they did in 2010.

Rick,

Where did you get the new channel additions? When TWC redid the websites nationally, the "Channel Changes" section is now gone here in Wisconsin. Or did they send a notice in the mail?

Satch

the changes page has been moved to under the "regulatory" tab at the bottom of main TWC page they will pop up with your division automatically and you can see all of the ohio, wisconsin, pennsylvania, Missouri, and Nebraska changes on that page.

Maybe Hob can answer this question. How come TWC publishes channel change notifications in the newspaper and their website and doesn't follow through with them?

Channel change notifications are done several weeks in advance (usually once a month) and published on the website. If a channel doesn't actually materialize, it is usually because of a technical snafu. Sometimes needed equipment does not reach the local cable office in time, there is something wrong with the equipment or a descrambler issue, or there is some other technical problem holding things up.

In my experience, these channels always eventually show up, if just a few days late. Cable companies also have to issue dire warnings that channel disruptions may occur... if a programming renewal contract cannot be worked out in time. Most of the time, it turns out to be a non-issue.

TWC does notices twice a month. Also TWC has become lax on their notices not actually showing info that needs to be posted. Example austin texas and waco texas are losing 3-4 analogs next month to make room for DTA's and 8 channel DOCSIS bonding yet the changes are supposed to be done on december 19th yet they didn't give a 30 day notice in the paper only through mailers.
