Re: [TWC] Time Warner Cable Channel Wish List

I found this strange that these channels are being deleted which TWC Suburban never carried!

On or about January 1, 2013, Ovation and Ovation HD will no longer be available as part of our service offering.

It would be nice if TWC would have added the HD version of BBC World News to all areas with SDV instead of just SD for areas outside of the Northeast and the Carolinas. It makes no sense to just add the SD version considering the areas that are getting the SD version are all SDV enabled areas anyway. TWC has been improving the SDV bandwidth in systems throughout the country that need it in systems that can make room for more SDV QAM carriers I know that these systems have 22 or 24 SDV QAMs based on looking at silicondust and seeing the same unencrypted subchannel bounce between different QAMs:

22 QAMs for SDV:
Central Texas
Southern California

24 QAMs for SDV:
Dallas Texas (includes surronding cities in North Texas)
Hawaii

I would love one day to see a standard channel line up across the company. The East is working towards that.

Wisconsin is moving more channels to require a cable box for them. And I think the new Sports Channels for my area are going to be launched on January 16th, if I remember from the notice. Yea, it's about 10-15 channels added to Sports Pass.

Hobs, a question, I have read for a long time that Sports Channels are the most expensive for TWC to get. With TWC looking to consolidate packages and Mr. Britt saying that niche channels might be dropped that aren't of value, I am surprised that these Sports stations because of cost are getting added. Can you comment on this?

Satch

PS. Wisconsin got Aspire, and SD versions of BBC World News and some other sports station who's name escapes me. No HD for BBC World News yet for Wisconsin.

I heard Chiller launched their HD station. That would be an interesting station to get in HD on TWC.

Yesterday, Ovation was still listed on the Guide in Wisconsin. (Channel 210.) But it's a part of Digital Choice here, which I don't get. Don't know if Ovation's drop was nationwide, or some areas still have it, or the guide data is wrong.

I'm in Austin, TX and have had TWC for only a brief time. (I previously had AT&T U-Verse, but it was not available at the new address when I moved last fall).

I am flabbergasted at the lack of HD channels on the lineup. For Austin, I'm not going to be happy until I get:

BBC America HD
DIY HD
E! HD
IFC HD
OWN HD

and then more HBO HD feeds. I think I had 12 or 13 with U-Verse and get a whopping 5 in HD with TWC here.

What a difference! With TWC-Wisconsin we have at least 150 HD channels.

TWC WNY has over 150 HDTV stations also in their lineup. The only ones that are really missing are the ones I listed in the original post.

They are supposed to launch on the 16th in Wisconsin. Sports Pass they announced here may be going up by $3.00 on average for those additions. Discounted and Packaged customers may not get the increase at this time. Sports Pass, at least without some discount, will go up here in Wisconsin from $5.95 to $8.95.

I read the legal notice and I think you may be combining the QAM changes that are supposed to take place on the 16th with those channel adds unless they were announced with the price increase card.

Thanks Motorola,

This could be. The wording seems to imply that one follows the other. All the billing statement said, was a possible $3.00 increase for Sports Pass on the next billing cycle, which would coincide with those 10-15 Sports Pass Channels, not the QAM station removal.

Who has the new Sports Pass Stations? Such as Fishing Network, Pac 12 Stations, and FightNow Network? (TWC/BHN Systems.)

TWC WNY had a new channel notice back in October indicating the new channels were to be added late in the month. The Sports Pass Stations were never added: PAC 12 regionals, FightNow Network, World Fishing Network, NESN-National to name a few. Our $3.00 Sports Pass Increase of $3.00 was effective December, 2012.

We got the increase but the channels were never added.

Good list. Personally I cant even get to watch most of the channels I have let alone all those!

I will be subscribing to center Ice at 49.99 though!

Yep, just called in to try to order it, but its currently not in the system. The CSR said call back on the 19th. I cant wait! Glad to see the NHL massively slashing the price of Center Ice. Last year the NBA did nothing with the price of League Pass after the lockout, except offer a two week free preview at the beginning of the season instead of just one week.

Have fun! I thought about Stub Hubbing it and going Sunday, but I’m not really motivated to do much of anything on Sundays these days. Unfortunately since the game is on NBC, I’ll have a tough time trying to watch it outside of opening faceoff and 1st period. I’ll opt for the NFC Championship Game when I can’t take whatever commentators NBC will have. I swear, sports on NBC should be illegal, outside of the Faith Hill SNF into, their coverage of sports, especially hockey, just blows. I yearn to get hockey back either Fox, glowing puck and all, or ESPN.

Johnson v Dodson on Saturday night followed by the Clippers destroying the Wizards, and on Sunday NFL Championship games and Sabres Hockey and the return of the NHL. Should be a good weekend all around.

Yep, you're right. I was thinking it was a standard 1 o'clock start. Looks like it starts at 3PM with an hour Championship special and an hour pregame show before it. Hopefully the Sabres game doesn’t go into an extended shootout.

We don't have any Univision channels that I am aware of in the basic lineup.
