Mass Confusion: Bright House Channel Changes Start Today

11

December

Tvheads As you may already know by now, tons of channels are changing on Bright House Networks in every one of its Tampa Bay area cable TV systems in seven counties. Pinellas County has been hit the hardest, with 42 different channel changes, including moving the government and public school channels into the high definition tier. It's all in the name of standardizing channel numbers in every market.

There's also a bunch of new high definition channels -- eight debuting tomorrow. Some, including the ESPN channels, have appeared before their scheduled start, but I'll include the information anyways.

Revolutioncontrollerrevealed2005091 I also got this email from the good folks at Verizon:

Our channel line-up for PEGs is already "in order" and will not be changed. The link below provides you with our overall line-up. The PEG channels are available to both analog (Local Package on this list) and digital customers in the same location. The overwhelming majority of our FiOS TV customers take the digital Premier package. One, it is the foundation of our bundled offerings; and two, at $42.99 for standalone (STBs, taxes and fees are extra), it is priced very competitively to Bright House's analog and digital packages.
