so i rebooted my cis430 as suggested.
716 cartoon network is there
504 LS times is there
183 comedy gold still does not exist. supposed to be on free preview until July 31. but not sure if it matters all that much as it appears to be just a copy of the Deju View channel, yes?

yeah do you have channel 14? that airs the comedy gold channel. also i just noticed today on vod that they're moving the adult section into the movies section. I think that's stupid cause some stupid parent won't know parental controls and there kid can rent movies and if they go to the adult section, there's probably going to be a lot of complaints from stupid parents who don't know parental controls. I strongly say to keep the adult content in a seperate section.

nvm

nvm the adult section is moved to the bottom of the movies section. and also yesterday i noticed they changed the menu on optik tv. looks really nice, but the only thing is it's really slow but they'll eventually release updates to not only speed up vod but hopefully also facebook and twitter.

On Demand Changes

I'm a little iffy regarding the new interface, but I'm willing to give it a chance & see if it's just me being resistant to change...

I have noticed that AMC on demand seems to have vanished.
I hoped briefly that maybe the new interface just didn't show a channel's VOD selection if it was "empty" (that last, lonely Mad Men episode had been there a while all by itself the last time I looked a couple of weeks ago) and that it would show up when AMC had new shows up again, but Telus's web site doesn't show it among the available options anymore (after it was just introduced a couple of months ago).
I considered calling in to ask, but how likely is it that a call centre drone will be able to provide a satisfactory answer?

I was looking forward to maybe Breaking Bad being available this way, but, ah well, I guess I'll just DVR it.

telus has been really slow adding new content for fx canada and amc on demand and the only things on amc on demand was mad men. Maybe some time they will add new content.

That was what I assumed until (as mentioned above) I noticed that all mention of it had vanished from Telus's web site...

On Demand Changes

I just noticed a change to On Demand that I have a major problem with: the date that a program is available until is no longer shown with the summaries while browsing. If there's nowhere else that this info can be found, I might be making a call after all...

The CRTC has ruled in favor of Telus regarding the arbitration and ordered the parties to sign the Telus final offer affiliation agreements by 25 July 2012.

See this thread for more info:

This should allow Telus to carry channels like Space HD and Discovery Channel HD very soon.

Yea!!!
Interesting to see the CRTC chose Telus over Bell, I though it would be a done deal with Bell's mastery of vertical integration...

"you can find out the date by going to optik on demand online."

Not fully true: from what I was able to find, it only covers programming available through the "online/mobile" version of on demand, which actually is only a limited selection of what you can get through Optik online (no FX Canada programming, for instance, which is where I personally missed out on seeing something because the expiry date had vanished).
In any case, it's not really much of a substitute for arbitrarily, unnecessarily taking something out of the TV interface.

Teletoon HD not showing up

I looked at the website and it said "Teletoon HD is on channel 701".
When I look in between 699 and 702 on my TV nothing is there.

I don't think that there has been a Teletoon HD on Optik has there? So I'm guessing it is "coming soon". There should be at least a couple of new HD channels coming real soon now that Bell and Telus have settled their battle in the courts. I think they were given until Wednesday to give Telus the channels they were looking for which will include Space HD and Discovery HD, mayb more as well.

Copied from the Telus web site:
Quote:
TELETOON - new HD channel
HD Channel 701
Theme Pack Family
Available as individual channel No
http://www.telus.com/content/tv/opti...highlights.jsp

Ronnie Yau, try rebooting your STB if you don't see one of the new channels in the guide.

I'm not in Telus territory, so I can't tell if the channel is actually there or not.
