    Any other subscribers out there ticked by the fact that there are only 2 HD shows in the package and you have to pay for each current HD show? I haven't seen this on ANY other On Demand Channel package.

    I thought all of Wiggy's shows were still Non - HD . . .

    I'm surprised Wiggy discovered HD. Maybe it was a used HD camera he found online . . .

    It's shot/edited in HD and has been since day one. I expect at some point in 2016 after HTV shuts down he will release them on Blu-ray.

    It's sad, really. You have the daily shows WHEN there is a live show. There have been 20 behind the scene shows in lawd knows how many years; Howard wanted one like Oprah; only Oprah was IN her behind the scene shows whereas Howard is rarely ever.

    Wrap up shows....again WHEN they are live and always very short.


    Then....as for the "Vault" ....I'd say they recycle the same 40 shows over and over again over the past seven years. Also, I don't know WHAT the heck they are censoring....but most are only 14 to 20 minutes long.


    Now...let's talk about reliability....current day's show is supposed to be posted at 8pm the next night....sometimes it is....sometimes it's at midnight....sometimes they don't put them on for an entire week and then load the whole THREE on Saturday. Imagine the irony of Howard complaining about AGT shows, it's just a big game to try to figure out when they will post a show.

    Vacations: first 5 year contract, about 50% of the time, they would post an old show under "daily shows"; with the new contract, I'd say it's about 2%.

    I know, I know, I'm hanging my head in shame that I still subscribe; but the show mostly annoys me; and it's hard to break a 25 year habit; especially with nothing comparable to switch to....so I mostly keep up by reading here and watching HTV.

    and....as far as Artie? He never existed. Just about a month ago, they posted a few shows where he was in them for a minute or two....but they have never posted shows where he was a main player.

    Oh YESSEREE....I'm quite proud. They just started posting shows in HD a month ago....but charge for each of them ON TOP of the monthly subscription fee. I guess cable co. got enough complaints....that they list two very old shows for free....but you still have to pay for the new ones.

    Really?
    It was on HTV-OD that I 1st saw Artie's Rampage when he went after Teddy and it took Barbara Booey and 2 other half-men to stop him.
    So now... Artie's in the Phantom Zone with Alison.

    I'm going to honest with you.

    I bought into the whole "great programming" of Howard TV and I had it for 2 years.

    The best programming that they had was the roasts that Bob Levy did; after that it went downhill fast.

    As far as I'm concerned it was a total waste of money.

    Same here....I don't know when you stopped subscribing....but about a month after Artie left....he was never to be seen on HTV again until very recently.
