I will have to consider it. I guess it would allow me the ability to track these IP addresses. Especially when they all seem to be coming from one source.
Regarding the ONE World > Eleven Sports, I don't think "renamed" is the best way to describe it on the channel change lists, as ONE World was acquired by Eleven. So maybe rebranded? I'm not sure. What are your thoughts? Branch (talk) 00:59, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
- Fixed it. I considered it a relaunch since they basically absorbed ONE World Sports distribution, but have to get new contracts. I know the New York Cosmos have moved from One World Sports to a new deal with MSG and WPIX even though those are only regional. They touted those would be the first Cosmos games on broadcast TV since the old teams heyday in the 1970's. --Longislandmedia (talk) 20:27, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
FiOS Custom TV
So fios now has like 5 custom tv packages, replacing the two they had before. there's no way an addition 3 columns would fit in the listing table-- how should we handle it? Branch (talk) 23:43, 28 March 2017 (UTC)
I would have to look at the new packaging and how it breaks down. I focused more on the channel line-up changes than the package changes. I guess it was done to satisfy some programmers' contracts who don't like the skinny packs. With NBC Universal folding some of their smaller channels, I have heard Viacom may start pulling the plug on the smaller channels, this may show a trend of contraction in the television industry. --Longislandmedia (talk) 05:18, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

To avoid confusion, I think it makes sense to replace all mentions of "rename" in Fios tv changes to either "rebrand" (for a name/logo change) or "relaunch" (for a major name/logo and/or content change) but I wanted to check with you. To me, there doesn't seem to be a big enough different between rename and rebrand (since name changes usually come with new logos) to have both terms floating around.
Is Nick2 still available on Verizon FiOS? It shutdown on November 22, 2018. Nick2 was the off-air brand for a secondary timeshift channel of Nickelodeon formerly available on the high-tier packages exclusively on cable providers as a compliment to the main Nickelodeon feed, repackaging Nickelodeon's Eastern and Pacific Time Zone feeds for the appropriate timezone – the Pacific feed was distributed to the Eastern and Central Time Zones, and the Eastern feed was distributed to the Pacific and Mountain Time Zones – resulting in the difference in local airtimes for a particular program between two geographic locations being three hours at most, allowing viewers a second chance to watch a program after its initial airing on the Eastern Time Zone feed or to watch the show ahead of its airing on the Pacific Time Zone feed of the main channel (for example, the Nick at Nite block would respectively start at 11:00 p.m. Eastern on Nick 2 Pacific or 5:00 p.m. Pacific weeknights on Nick 2 Eastern). Nick 2 never broadcast in high definition. The timeshift channel was originally offered as part of the MTV Networks Digital Suite, a slate of channels exclusive to high-tier cable packages (many of the networks also earned satellite carriage over time), and was the only American example of two feeds of a non-premium service being provided to cable and IPTV providers.
Yes, Nick2 is still on Fios but it has been just the West Coast Feed since they ended the separate Nick2 feeds. Carriers using the time-shifted feed continue to identify it as Nick2. On West Coast systems (since Verizon Fios no longer has any since those were sold to Frontier), it would be the East Coast feed. TV providers continue to call it Nick2 while it is identified as the Nickelodeon West Coast feed on satellite.
BTW, you have confirmation that Longhorn Network and MASN2 are full-time HD on Dish? The James Long chart still has them as part-time live event only HD. I know that in the case of MASN 2, Cable providers carry the feed 24-7 with Fox Netbase programming filling the downtime hours. DirecTV only carries the channel part-time when they show live events either from Netbase or when it is functioning as MASN's overflow channel which is largely during baseball season to show both Orioles and Nationals games live. --Longislandmedia (talk) 05:33, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
