There may something odd happening behind the scenes at Comcast.

 

Yeah, the Comcast execs are probably trying to figure out how many price increases they can push through without having to deliver more channels.

Re: [Content] So does Comcast ever add channels?

SEC Network is scheduled to launch 8/21, so maybe we'll get a channel add then?

Sure, you'll get it in SD. They might get it in HD in SEC markets down South.

I guess we may find out if Comcast decides to add channels when they inherit TWC's Start Over and Lookback. They may decide they like SDV it would certainly be a way they could get room for DOCSIS 3.1 and new HD channels

Don't even joke about Comcast bringing back SDV or else there is going to be a huge amount of customers rioting in the streets. I just don't get why people do not see how horrible SDV is. All Comcast and all other cable provider needs to do is move everyone over to the MPEG-4 video codec for better compression and video quality and everyone is good to go. I mean hell all video equipment from the set-top boxes from Motorola and Cisco to TiVo to even the SiliconDust equipment supports MPEG-4 natively. Just do it already.

I assume Comcast Garden State is adding KJWP Wilmington/Philadelphia (ME-TV Formerly of Jackson, Wyoming) on February 27th on CH 2 and HD 788 JeepMatt reported they are doing in Delaware. Us in Middlesex County will probably get sister station KVNV on ch 3 soon after it moves cross country from Ely NV and signs on from New York (Licensed in Middletown, NJ).

Also, besides what's in your other thread on this »[Content] Will Comcast add Press Communications' KJWP and KWNV? , I also found this article on these new stations:

The classic TV multicast network from Weigel Broadcasting will be on the primary channels of KVNV New York and KJWP Philadelphia.

I not sure is that call letter change is true since PCMP (AKA Press Communications owner of Jersey Shore radio stations such as Thunder 106.3/5) changed the other stations call letters from KJWY to KJWP before the move. I was thinking a new call sign would be done the same way a be something like KVNJ.

MPEG4 isn't an option for most channels most of the Motorola boxes are only MPEG2 DCH series and older only the DCX series and RNG series Motorola boxes support MPEG4

and no SDV when done right can be helpful. Comcast could do a IP protocol based SDV tuning for the Tivo's like the VOD system works with Xfinity On Demand and the only devices that would need a tuning adapter are the ceton, silicondust, and Samsung retail boxes.

Well, there is already a (low-power translator) station with the callsign "KVNJ" located in Fargo, ND according to a query of the FCC's database: »transition.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/tvq?call=KVNJ

Nothing was found searching for "WVNV" however.

doesn't matter if you have two stations with the same call sign you just can't have two full power, low power, class A stations sharing the same call signs. Here KUVN-DT and KUVN-CD share the same call signs all though one is a semi satellite of the other station to fill in for a part of the metroplex here in the DFW area.

"-DT" means it is a full-power station. "-CD" means it is a digital Class A station (low power). Class A means it follows some extra FCC rules and has more 'priority' than a standard low-power (-LP) station (if I remember all of this correctly.)

Isn't it so 'exciting' that, once Comcast takes over the Time-Warner Cable communities, Comcast will be in about one-third cable subscribers' homes?!

American Hero's Channel is a rebrand of Military Channel so it will be available anywhere that is offered and that is pretty much everywhere that has digital cable.

Discovery Network can rebrand their networks all they want; it won't make up for their desperation of cross-mixing shows. My favorite (not) is having "Who was Jesus" on the Military channel.

Re: The Drought Continues

I am confident (ha!) that many of these "added" channels will be plopped in cleverly so as to maximize the cost to subscribers, such as having Military History sandwiched in with sports channels. Want Military History? Have to purchase a sports package. :-(
