So it seems cordcuttersnews put out an article about this and put in a lot of speculation... This is not good.

https://www.cordcuttersnews.com/hdhomer ... -channels/
This blogger is a hack. He basically regurgitates stuff he reads on Reddit or other message boards.
just like every other blogger/youtube hero on the internet.
I love it when they cry about their family needing support - to get me to turn off my ad blocker. I feed on that kind of stuff.

lol

PS:
He didn't have to go any further than this forum to get all that breaking news. Too bad SD can't sue him for everything he has, so him and his needy family can live in a van down by the river (providing SD lets him keep the van).

'too bad SD can't sue him for everything he has'

bloggers can definitely be sued for libel; it's just he hasn't libeled SD with that post.

Ha! Glad to see others have a similar opinion of this site. Hes not a news source, just a power tripping blogger looking to make a buck (his site is riddled with ads and links to all of his various social media). This might be okay if he actually provided real news but as you said, it's usually just regurgitated news (often without citing sources) or speculative opinionining or cordcutting fluff pieces to pump out clicks.

It's crap.

Lots of inaccurate information in there as well. Someone from SD PR might want to reach out to them.
What’s inaccurate about this?

Worse off. He gave a bad review of the hdhomerun, because he had no idea how it works

The channels remain offline with no sign of a timeline for return. They no longer exist in the guide. They have been removed from the HDP advertisement page. Credits have been promised. Spin it however you wish, but the channels have been dropped until further notice. That doesn't preclude them from coming back tomorrow or next week.

But again, arguing amongst ourselves over semantics, the desirability of Hallmark or Discovery, or over some blogger's site does nothing to address the real problem.

TikiTV states they're in negotiations on these missing channels.

Based on my recent experience here with Cox pushing a lot of channels
like these into their pricey Contour package (which, BTW, I can't come
close to affording) the likelihood of getting back Hallmark OWn and Discovery
in our package for $35 is somewhere between slim and none..evidently
the contracts Omniverse had with Hallmark et al must have expired and
they all want more money for their content..just my $.02..your mileage will
vary..

Thank you for the contract dispute upstream update guys :) My wife & I were pretty sure that's what was going on & it's nice to have that bit confirmed.

We'll still be here as customers as she stays down in the ***** rabbit hole saving all of the HGTV, Hallmark & DIY shows there. :)

Closing this one down as well in favor of the overarching thread here: viewtopic.php?f=129&t=70439

ycavan, hopefully that $10 credit should help offset your costs!
