[TWC] Dallas/Ft Worth Metro Vol II -- Time Warner

This is a new variant of the Time Warner Cable thread for the Dallas / Ft. Worth area. Some of us thought the old one was too long (it had 3,104 replies, which is more than double the size of the next largest thread - plus it spans four YEARS of posts). Thought it was worth starting up a new one, so here it is.

The original thread is still here: »[Cable] Dallas/Ft Worth Metro Vol I -- Time Warner

Pulling this out of the old thread, this is my list of what TWC DFW has said they're adding HD wise, but we don't have a formal date for yet (just appear on various legal notices):

By my count, here's what's left to come that they've announced in current or past legal notices. Let me know if any of these were added, and I just can't see them due to my access.

725 - TV One HD
726 - Galavision HD
729 - G4 HD
731 - WE HD (Women's Channel, I think)
732 - History International HD
733 - The Cooking Channel HD
734 - DIY HD
735 - CMT HD
737 - Nickolodeon HD
742 - Fox Business HD
743 - TruTV HD
749 - Investigation Discovery HD
750 - VH1 HD
772 - National Geographic Wild HD
773 - G4 HD
791 - The Outdoor Channel HD
792 - NBA TV HD
793 - GOL TV HD
794 - Big Ten HD
795 - Tennis Channel HD (ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzz)
818 - HBO Latino HD
819 - HBO Family HD
821 - HBO Zone HD
826 - Action Max HD
831 - Showtime 2 HD
957 - Team HD PPV

As mentioned in other threads, good news today, the deal with Disney also included ESPN 360! Now all we need is a Hulu app for the 360 and I think I'll be able to dump TV service all together and just stick with RR for Wideband.

My belief and I could be wrong is that the subscription to ESPN3 is based on your video service. Dump TV service, you dump ESPN3 also.

Interesting, the X-Box page describes it differently but that's definitely possible.

Edit: Upon further research, it more appears if your X-Box is coming across RR as the ISP in a market with ESPN's agreement, it isn't linked to your TV service. Time will tell I guess... this really could be the key to dumping cable! Awesome!

When does the deal for ESPN3.com kick in? I just tried & it still blocked me.

It will take some time to build in some sort of authentication for the service.

798 is ESPN goal line a HD channel that covers college football highlights on saturdays and is only available to sports pass(sports tier) subscribers.

798 is already up for those that subscribe to the sports pass(sports tier).

ESPN goal line is only available on a TWC Settop box or tuning adapter equiped third party DVR as it is transmitted via SDV.

Re: [TWC] Dallas/HereesFt Worth Metro Vol II -- Time Warner

Here's some info on 798 (ESPN Goal Line)..

»www.centurycitynews.com/article/···NE/68706

I have it. It's just a static channel, showing a non moving graphic, and playing music.

No guide info TiVo though.

Thanks, didn't really know what it was but figured it was some sorta place holder for College Football or they were starting to finally add some of the new HD that are in the pipeline.

Re: [TWC] Dallas/Ft Worth Metro Vol II -- Time Warner

What's strange, after years of teeth knashing, I can't really think of any channels I'm wanting in HD now other than the Outdoor channel in HD...

Perhaps Nick or Nick Jr. for the kids, but it seems like TWC finally caught up to everything I wanted...

I'm thinking the same thing. Like I said back in the old thread, I'm pretty pleased with the new HD channels. I'm almost to the point that every show I watch is on an offered HD channel. There are just a few HD channels I'd like that I haven't seen in the announcements

* more Showtimes (There's still only one HD Showtime)
* IFC and/or Sundance
* maybe BBC America?

I'll have to check shortly, as my kid is watching her post school PBS shows at the moment.

But yeah, I think the one thing I want more than any other channel at the moment is BBC America HD.

My list in the first message had a few errors, I noticed. One of which was having G4 in there twice.

Here's an updated list of what was added today.

727 - The Outdoor Channel HD
728 - Investigation Discovery HD
729 - G4 HD
730 - HSN HD
731 - WE HD (Women's Channel, I think)
732 - History International HD
733 - The Cooking Channel HD
734 - DIY HD
735 - CMT HD
737 - Nickolodeon HD
742 - Fox Business HD
743 - TruTV HD
750 - VH1 HD
772 - National Geographic Wild HD
782 - NBA TV HD
793 - GOL TV HD
794 - Big Ten HD
795 - Tennis Channel HD
818 - HBO Latino HD
819 - HBO Family HD
821 - HBO Zone HD
826 - Action Max HD
831 - Showtime 2 HD
957 - Team HD PPV

Of these, there's several I appear not to have a programming level for. They are: 732, 733, 734, 793, and 818 - 957.

These are the three yet to go out.

441 - KFWD HD
725 - TV One HD
726 - Galavision HD

I would have liked to have had KFWD in HD when they were running the original Star Trek episodes on Sunday nights in their remastered form.

Edit: I've submitted a missing channel report for all the channels added today (even the ones I don't have access to due to not having digital plus tier) with TiVo. Hopefully we'll get some listings by the weekend, but I'd say start of next week might be more realistic.

At this moment, KFWD in HD is pretty pointless. *All* programming is upconverted SD, even when they have HD source material. I'm not sure of the exact electron flow, but while they can broadcast a HD signal, some master control bits are pure SD, with no current time frame for an upgrade.

done.

Edit: All these channels show up on tivo.com as "null" channels, which is what happened to 'em a day or three before showing up on my TiVo with guide info. Either they acted really quickly on my reports, or someone else had gotten 'em in before me.

So I guess what we're still waiting for, in addition to a few HD channels like BBC America and some of the additional premium movie channels, is the multi room DVR.

Any further update on it's rollout, additional costs, etc?

Pure conjecture, but since the 3400's they're giving out don't support it, and iGuide has major problems handling it from other reports, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Got an email from TiVo saying my lineup issues have been deal with.

Forcing a call to see if the new channels are in today's data packet, or if it will be tomorrow.
