The CW network started airing season 2 of the La Complex this week check there website for the full episodes they maybe there also.
Viacom footprint on programming is larger and much more important than I first thought. Sports may be king to us older guys in the 40 plus range but most companies primarly target consumers in the young (Disney, Nick Jr.) age range and upwardly bound 20 plus groups.(MTV, BET and SPIKE)
Direct knows this. All the credits and frebbies given by thems shows they wanted to keep us current customers happy until they worked out their numbers with Viacom. A 20% price increase sounds pretty sweet to me. Think if your employer told you he/she was only going to give you a 20% raise instead of a30% pay increase. Would you really be that upset? We're talking almost a 3/4 billion dollars increase.
the LA Complex Season 2:
Epix 1,2 and 3 are in HD and Epix Drive-In is SD.
The reason I think Epix is off the table is that the DIRECTV announcement specifically noted that Epix was not part of the deal.
What I've learned is that way too many people get way too excited over television. Take a walk, read a book, sit down and talk with your wife/husband/son/daughter/mother/father/...
I don't get the impression that it will be available anytime soon. Too many bruised feelings. Maybe in a year or so.
That even paying TWO providers for service you may still not be able to watch all the channels you want and are paying for due to carriage disputes.
That is how dish has them. The Epix webpage makes it sound like they are all available in HD. The movies from Drive In are available on demand and they are all HD.
Glad u live in an area with affordable high speed internet and can get locals easily
I learned DTV will throw a bunch of $$$ at you if you just ask.
And since DISH is the only carrier with Epix 3 and Epix Drive-In, that's how they are.
You answered your own question here.
The Wikipedia article is quite detailed with lots of citations:
That does not mean they are not available. That is just how they are seen.
BBCA had an HD feed for a while that no one used.
It is all academic if DIRECTV maintains their current position on carrying the channels.
DIRECTV's position on BBC America HD is less obvious but it is obviously not a priority.
Everything we post on here except technical info and help is academic. Does that mean you will post less?
I don't think directv will ever add epix.
What have we learned?
This too, (fill in the blank), shall pass.
It took less than two weeks.
I doubt many will remember the next time around, as we impose upon ourselves yet another bout of hand-wringing, hyperbole and near hysteria.
So, what have we learned? Probably not a darn thing.
What have i learned, Batter up!
Bruising Blackout: A Prelude?
As DirecTV, Viacom Settle Dispute, Contract Talks Loom for Both Fox and CBS.
Misleading headline. Fox is withComcast. Directv did theirs recently.
But just because Viacom was nasty does not mean CBS or Fox will be. Fox and Directv got to the edge last time but they settled quietly. Viacom has shown they are a bunch of children who lie thinking they will not get caught.
Well, we have to give them a break...if Comcrap did a big ad buy, it can take some time to get those ads pulled.
