Hunting shows: Regardless of how you feel about them....

Is it my cable package, or are there fewer this year than in the past decade?

I come home most days for lunch and I used to be able to find shows / blatant product promo / decent hunts, etc. pretty much every day. If I couldn't find one at lunch, I could find one after the wife went to bed.

I can't find squat this year.

Yall seeing (or not seeing) the same thing? My provider was recently bought out by a different company, and that could have something to do with it, but I don't know.

    I think this has a lot to do with it. Just realized that I have not seen Outdoor Chan pop up in it's normal spot in the queue... scrolled and scrolled... finally found it and it's 5 channels above PPV adult channels.

    I guess we lost that Outdoor Channel on our package when Knology sold to "WOW". Yeah, not sure how I feel about "WOW". We paid out the nose for internet, TV and phone line before, and since "WOW" came in, the price went up another $20 and I lost at least Outdoor Channel. Aside from them, I swear I used to see other hunting programs too.

    Thinking this is a local issue.

    Need to find a way around this. Problem is WOW is the only bundle provider in my neighborhood, so I'm stuck. I need hard phone line (various reasons), internet and TV. If I start piecemealing I spend even more. Paying even more money for extra channels is also out of the question.

    I have Mediacom (sucks) and it has a couple but I cant remember the channel.I do wish there were more and something more informative than some dude shooting fence deer and his advertising paying for it.

    Kinda funny.....
    Last night my wife was watching soap opera network. As a joke, I grabbed the remote and turned on the outdoor channel, and walked out of the room with the remote. SHe starts laughing and says...the joke's on you!! Outdoor channel is all of a sudden gone from my cable package. Still have Sportsman's channel.

    I've got a few outdoor channels with Centurylink....commucast makes you buy a sports package to get anything decent.

    One I really like is Solo Hunters. Usually comes on Friday nights and seems pretty legit. They don't always harvest game and you can tell the guys have do a LOT of work to produce that show. Check it out if you get it...

    Well I wouldn't know we had Comcast Xfinity installed in August had service for 6 days and some jack n ape drove down the road with taller then the clearance limit of the wires and disconnected us hooked up aug 16th pulled down August 22 nobody ever came out to repair the line and we are now in a heated battle over the $500+ they think we owe them for a service that was not consumed for the last 4 months. I will absolutely never be a customer of there ever again there work ethic is sloppy and negligent and the customer assistance is beyond useless and the reps are nasty. That's pretty good lose 7 new customers in 6 days. With numbers like that you can't be too big to fail!!!!! That what we were told about how we have been treated basiclly said ah well the company is too big to fail. Oh and there high speed Internet only runs at about 1/3rd what they say it will. He whole company stinks so bad you can smell the stench up wind. They are out of there mind if they think I owe them a dime for being **** on. Atleast at work I'm getting paid for it

    Disclaimer for all the clowns on here I do not get paid to be literally **** upon!
