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

Wonder who will blink first. I am going to change my TIVO series recordings to use OTA 8-1 me thinks.
Wouldn't that be a better option anyway? I would think if you have a good OTA signal, it would be better than cable anyway, wouldn't it?

Certainly has higher bitrates than TWC, but it seems unlikely they'll stop carrying it.

Dear Time Warner Cable Customer:

ESPN ClassicESPN Classic is moving to our Time Warner Cable Sports Pass and HD/Sports tier, but will remain on the same channel number, starting Thursday, September 23. TWC Sports Pass and HD/Sports tier offer fans other great channels including Fox Collegiate Sports, Fox Soccer Plus, NHL Network and Tennis Channel.

In addition, we also recently launched ESPN Goal Line HD for TWC Sports Pass and HD/Sports tier customers, a high-definition channel featuring unlimited live cut-ins and highlights of top NCAA College Football games each Saturday from 12:00 noon to the conclusion of that day’s exciting college football action. (During college basketball season, ESPN’s “Buzzer Beater” will offer similar live cut-ins and highlights.)*

* ESPN Goal Line HD is available on Sports Pass Channel 798 or HD/Sports Tier Channel 798.

TWC Sports Pass and HD/Sports tier customers receive exclusive access to streaming web content from new online sports channels such as Speed2, and our ESPN customers will be able to enjoy additional online content from ESPN3 when we offer access to that web channel, coming soon.

If you are not already a Sports Pass or an HD/Sports Tier customer, please call 1-800-TW-CABLE (1-800-892-2253) if you would like to upgrade to this service or click below.

That's my dilemma. My OTA 8-1 signal levels are marginal (all other OTA channels are good and I have an external roof top antenna, albeit 20 years old). I get a fair amount of drop outs and pixelation that can last for 10 - 15 minutes depending what the weather is doing outside. And it always seems to happen during the last 10 minutes of one of the wife's shows, that doesn't make her happy at all. I don't know why 8-1 is the weakest signal.

According to this website:

»mediamemo.allthingsd.com/files/2···fees.png

ESPN Classic costs 18 cents a month. Since this is being eliminated for normal customers, we should see an 18 cent reduction in our bills.

NOTE: I'm surprised TWC can get away with this. I thought normally if you wanted ESPN the cable provider had to buy all the ESPN channels and not make them premium channels.

I was positive it was announced recently, that it was being turned into a kids channel of some sort. I'll see if I can find it.

That's it. You're right. I was remembering it wrong. Soon as I saw you post "SoapNET", I went "A-HA!"

Was looking at the most recent legal notice, and something odd struck me. It's this:

quote:
ESPN Classic from Digital Cable Channel 177 to Time Warner Cable Sports Pass and HD/Sports Tier Channel 177
ESPN Classic isn't offered in HD. Why would that be in there if we weren't getting it in HD? Although 177 is an SD channel.

Course it could just be an error, in which case, nevermind.
