Re: Studios Sue Omniverse in TV Streaming Crackdown

Annnndddd cancelled.

The whole Omniverse "we promise we have permission, look!" and the SD "well we saw the contracts" situation...yeah. How's that working out?

Re: TV Everywhere Registration

Re: Hallmark Offline - and missing on the tuner

It might not be a contract dispute. It might be a "caught with their pants down" type of moment with some specialized hardware coming from China that they didn't have a backup unit for, or some such.

Re: Hallmark Offline - and missing on the tuner

Just adding to the chorus that losing the Hallmark channel during the Thanksgiving-Christmas period is incredibly bad, whatever the reason, and some communication beyond "we gave support a few days off for Thanksgiving" would be nice.
