New channel requests

Just wondering...

How many of you use the new channel request form?

I used it a few weeks back actually to request a couple sports networks I'd like to see.

I request HD versions of channels I watch or my kid watches.. like Nickjr. But now he's getting into Sprout which has a HD channel so I might back off.

I use it every so often to request WatchESPN though.

I can think of 30 at the top of my head that could be added. But then WOW would have to raise prices even higher to add all of those.

I've used it a few times over the years, mostly for the same channel. haha

I'd love to be able to remove channels, or pay for specific channels. I really hope the industry moves in this direction. It needs to. My whole family might use maybe 20-30 channels on a busy TV week. And it'd be great if we could ditch the non-HD channels. They're a waste of space.

20-30? I only watch about 3-5. If you throw out nbc, cbs, etc. (the ones I can get OTA for free), there are probably only 2-3 cable channels I watch.

Well I guess if you limited it to channels we use for more than a half hour at a time we'd be well below 10. But sometimes we like to be able to flip through the movie channels, and there's a lot of those.

They need a drop channel request form to track what channels people would like to dump. I could cut my channel lineup in half easily.

They would never do that. Because then if channels were dropped, people would expect their bill to drop as well and WOW doesn't want that to ever happen.

What's with all the posts on WOW's Facebook page for adding TheBlaze? Those peoples' zealousness seems almost cult like.

They're fans of Glenn Beck. So cultlike would be appropriate.

Then cutting the cord and buying those few shows off of Amazon/iTunes might be the way for you to go.

Something like 7 of the last 9 FB posts are asking for TheBlaze. Is Beck having a contest to see who can be the most annoying? If so this latest FB post would win.

"WOW, are you listening? I want The Blaze, the only news outlet willing to tell the real news. I'm sick of listening to mainstream blather, disinformation and propaganda. I want The Blaze Now."

Ummm, is anyone forcing you to listen to anything?

I watch about 7 channels outside of the networks. That's it. I'd love to be able to cut down my package and pay for just the channels I actually want.

Requested Military Channel in HD. No change (still in standard def) and never any response. Might as well be talking to the wall.

It's a channel request. It doesnt mean that there going to contact you and talk about it. They get enough people wanting a channel and they look into it, thats it. So if you feel your talking to a wall then dont request channels but dont bitch either.

Hello, I would like to request that WOW add ESPN8 The Ocho immediately to my channel lineup.
