Re: Bright House HD Channel Anticipation Thread (Q1-2013)

There is probably little demand for it, but i'd like to see the Funimation-HD channel, even if it's only in the form of "On Demand" like with the Anime Network.

Not a lot of carriers have that.

It could be a possibility down the line so you never know.

Speaking of channels, there is a rumor that Military Channel HD has launched in HD.

If it did, I expect TWC/BHN to pick this up pretty quickly as there are very few channels that BHN has in SD that are offered in HD that they have not picked up.

I remember a channedl "back in the day" called HDNet. Any chance we will see HDNet Movies again?

So does this lead to the end of the analog channels coming in 2013?

So support to those who connect their TV's directly to the BHN cable will only receive the local channels?

RUQRU: HDNet is now AXS.TV and apparently they are dumping a lot of their popular programming for concerts and censoring shows like Art Mann.

HDNet Movies is still intact and given how AXS.TV's top goal is getting all of the cable carriers they lost over the past few years back into the hold I could see a deal eventually happening to accomplish this.

The real issue has been AXS.TV (then HDNet) being on Digital Basic instead of the HD Pak. If they lower their price more, something could happen and they might cave a little more since they have not gained any carriers back since the rebranding in June.

Lpvancini,

Time Warner Cable is doing this but no idea when Bright House will do this.

We are all getting the TWC National version of the Lakers Channels tomorrow.

Bakersfield already has them because they have the local version.

i doubt we all get BBC World news until the end of the month.

rossies,

It definitely is.

It's not in the guide yet but if you punch in 1222, you can see it.

They still have not moved the SD version of BBC America to it's new section and put BBC World News SD in it's place.

Thanks for the tip.

I have an update on some things based on TWC Legal Notices and some other reports.

A TWC Kansas City Legal Notice shows that not only is BBC America off of the month to month carriage deals but so are channels from Scripps.

Cooking Channel, DIY, Food Network and GAC

It also appears that GSN is no longer on the list.

While the above channels were likely never getting pulled, it's nice to shrink the list and give anyone worried about the possibility of losing the above channels for a few days some piece of mind.

I will keep everyone posted if the other TWC month to month deals which mirror Bright House's are showing the same thing.

There is some other good news

Military Channel HD

and Military History HD

are now available.

»buckeyecablesystem.com/lineups/l···neup.pdf

and there is an interesting rumor that Chiller might finally be available in HD.

If this is true, I might harass Gary worse than the beIN Sport people until we get it. I do have confidence BHN would add it pretty quickly though anyway. Chiller HD goes to the top of my list if it's available.

These new HD channels launching show it's going to be another fun year on the HD front.

Everyone,

Chiller is indeed on HD on a few small cable systems so we should get it within the first 6 months of 2013.

On another note, were all likely losing Ovation TV On December 31

»www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/1···663.html

As TWC which does deals for BHN is dropping the channel.

Based on news reports, it seems more than Ovation might be on the chopping block.

I think TWC wants to make a statement here.

If they do drop channels, adding HD versions of say Chiller and Military Channel could soften the blow.

The only ones rumored that I'm not a little concerned about are IFC (Sometimes like to watch movies) and Current (Documentaries).

said by HDOrlando:

Bigdaddy: I might just do that. Maybe even do a separate thread. Which HD channels do you still want?

1 HDNet Movies HD
2 Epix HD
3 Encore Westerns HD
4 More Starz/Encore HD Channels

Thanks

BigDaddy,

Given how TWC/BHN are dropping indy channels, not sure how much of a chance HDNet Movies has especially with how they want AXS.TV (formerly HDNet) on Digital Basic. The new channel is crap and BHN will not overpay. If only they would do HDNet Movies seperately.

EPIX would be nice and with that Netflix deal over, you never know.

Hopefully, with the renewal (BBC America, Food Network, Cooking Channel, DIY, GAC and GSN) and dropping of Ovation and possibly other channels by year's end, a deal will get struck with Starz which will lead to more HD Starz/Encore.

Time Warner Cable In California is adding Military Channel HD in January.

This becomes a stronger possibility for us.

Is there an American version available in SD or HD.

We should get word on the Michigan this afternoon or evening.

Since Bright House adds things to the main systems around the same time, it should give all of us an idea of what will be in our notice likely next Monday.

I'm predicting Military Channel HD in January for all of us. May that happen and more goodies come with it.

Michigan's notice via yimitz

There were no surprises on the month to month deals

Added: ShopNBC
Off: BBC America, Cooking Channel, DIY, Food Network, GAC and GSN.

No mention of Ovation TV being dropped but it's happening January 1.

1 new HD Channel

Jewelry TV HD (February 1)

It's likely everyone's notice and while it is not what anyone wanted and feel the above should have been added with the other shopping channels in late October (arrived a day or so early), at least we get it out of the way.

The stinger though: No Sundance HD, Military Channel HD or Chiller HD.

Orlando's Notice surprisingly came this morning.

It is exactly the same as The Michigan notice above.

We get Jewelry TV HD On channel 1328 February 1

I feel we should have gotten this channel when we got those other Shopping Channels in HD.

The good news is I doubt Bright House would only give us Jewelry TV HD in a quarter which means I feel Military Channel HD is still likely for the first quarter.

Not sure about Chiller HD and Military History HD although if available, they could come quickly but let me say this. Something must be up with Sundance HD. It's the only other channel on the TWC deals that is not month to month (Starz and TV Japan) and we have in SD.

I'm not sure what it is and I doubt it's the IFC and WE contract being up. Hopefully, we eventually get it.
