Just to be clear
I wanted to clear up some misunderstanding with this issue of TCM HD being blacked out.
Jan 25, 2010 1:30pm-5:00pm Bell 1283 (TCM-HD) Blacked out due to not having broadcast rights in Canada.
Bell 292 (TCM SD) The Male Animal 1:30-3:15, then Dream Wife 3:15-5:00pm
Meanwhile, on Echostar 132 (TCM US SD) The Long Night 1:30pm-3:15, then The Lady Killers 3:15-5:00pm
So, not only do they not have HD rights, they don't even have Canadian rights to the SD version.
Currently we have blackouts listed in the programming guide for the 1:30-5:00 slot, as well as another on Saturday and a third on Tuesday next week. So there are a fair number of blackouts.
As far as my Bell 9242 is concerned, however, the programming guide is accurately stating which moving is playing (or if there's a blackout.)
My conversation with ExpressVu support has them telling me that what I am seeing has nothing to do with them. In other words, the change in programming or blackout is coming directly from TCM and if I wish to complain about it I should contact TCM...so that's my next step.
