I had TW for 15 years. Never heard of this channel.

I love Ovation. It's one of the few channels worth watching. I was watching The Nutcracker in 3-D on Ovation on-demand two nights ago.

“A CHANCE TO DANCE FOLLOWS MICHAEL NUNN AND BILLY TREVITT, TWO OF THE UK’S MOST PROMINENT CONTEMPORARY DANCERS AND CHOREOGRAPHERS, IN THEIR QUEST TO CREATE A NEW DANCE COMPANY FOR NIGEL LYTHGOE IN JUST 28 DAYS. “

...Michael already knows so he’ll simply have to roll over and give Billy the bad news.

Not hard to predict. Ovation is one of those channels that should be digital only. Put the content up on Hulu or Netflix.

protesting the planned drop of Ovation, under the umbrella of a newly formed organization, Citizens for Access to the Arts.

Hey, citizens: I see pay per view in your future.

As a former TWC employee, I can honestly say that the content providers - like Ovation - make it very difficult for TWC to carry their services. Each one of them hikes fees to the point where a whole package of channels becomes prohibitively expensive.

The only real answer is to make it a true market choice: figure out how to offer a la carte channel selections. If your channel doesn’t sell, change your business model.

BTW - I’m fully aware that means TV will be controlled by people who want to see more Honey Boo Boo. That’s why I don’t have TV any more - just Netflix over broadband.

This is why nutcases are shooting up schools. There’s no appreciation for the arts any more. If Lanza had been watching Ovation instead of playing video games, Newtown would be a different place today.

I blame global warming.

[TWC] countered in a rebuttal statement that "steeply escalating programming costs are forcing us to closely assess each network as it comes up for renewal."
I hope so. I recently noticed the Military Channel airing shows about Jesus Christ, the pharaohs of Egypt and space exploration.
From the MC webpage I discovered they're part of the Discovery Communications company with over 20 channels including TLC, Discovery Channel, Science Channel, et al.
What's the sense of TW paying the Discovery company big bucks for all those channels if they're going to be airing the same content?

TW is moving more and more “good” channels off the basic tier. We get, I guess you’d call it tier 2, and it seems every couple of weeks another channel disappears.

But we stiil get about 6 shopping channels and around 4 spanish channels.

Through in the ABC/NBC/CBS/ROC channels that have around 4 different spots each and we’re paying more and more for less.
