The first day of spring is March 21st. Considering we’re still getting snow showers, it is hard to believe the season officially begins in less than two weeks. Spring is a time for fresh starts. The weather gets warmer, the world explodes in color as trees and flowers bloom, and everyone eagerly emerges from their winter hibernations. With all this new energy in the air, it’s no wonder why spring is also peak moving season.
Sunday brings the largest award show of the season, the 90th Annual Academy Awards. The Oscars are always full of interesting surprises, fashion, twists and turns, for which I would like to thank the Academy.
Every year we expect the films that have won multiple awards at the preceding award shows as favorites to win Oscars, but there always seems to be some unexpected surprises. Last year had one of the most notable twists, when the wrong film was initially announced as the winner of the best picture category. If that could happen, who knows what else is possible!
This year’s awards are sure to be interesting. There are a few films that racked up some major nominations, as well as some underdogs that have also earned their chance to be recognized.
To get yourself ready for Hollywood’s big night, below we put together a list of the nominated films and when and where you can catch them on Fioptics On Demand, major nomination categories, and how to make sure you’re tuned in for all the action on Oscar Sunday.
The most neighborly provider there is.
That is not a catchy tagline that appears in our recent advertisements. With a history spanning 145 years in the community and over 3,000 employees currently living in Greater Cincinnati, just about everyone living in this region can trace some sort of connection – whether it be a friend, family member, or neighbor – to Cincinnati Bell.
For some of our employees, working at Cincinnati Bell has even become something of a family tradition.
Recently, Cincinnati Bell executives recognized the great work our 800 Field Technicians do every day. The Field Technicians are among the most powerful and effective brand ambassadors at our company. As part of this recognition, we interviewed Mark Ward, one of many field employees with multi-generational ties to Cincinnati Bell.
Cincinnati has been a place to call home since 1788. The land was originally called Losantiville until 1790 when Arthur St. Clair, the first governor of the Northwest Territory, renamed the land. Now, we have been calling Cincinnati home for nearly two hundred and thirty years.
Cincinnati Bell has been connecting the Greater Cincinnati community to one another and the rest of the world since 1873. We are proud to be your hometown provider and your neighbor. That’s why we were excited to premiere our latest commercial during halftime of Super Bowl 52.
Over the past two centuries, Cincinnati has developed its own identity. Our goal with this commercial was to show our love for Cincinnati and the surrounding neighborhoods by highlighting some awesome landmarks that give Cincinnati its unique character alongside Cincinnati Bell employees who live in those places – your very own neighbors.
We all love our home Internet network. It connects us to friends and family, recipes we’ve been dying to try, and so much more. But, with great power comes great responsibility.
There is nothing more important than making sure your kids are protected from harmful content on the web, and keeping the whole family protected from criminals who want to gain access to your valuable personal information.
Is it just me, or did anyone else feel like their favorite show was barley on this season before the “winter finale” hit? It seemed like we were just saying hello to our favorite characters when it was already time to say goodbye.
Luckily, this mid-season break was relatively short, only a few weeks as opposed to the months we often have to wait in between entire seasons.
During mid-season breaks, networks often pause the release of new episodes for a few weeks during the holiday season when people may not be watching TV as much and ratings could be affected. Then once the holidays are over, the show re-airs. This also gives the networks an opportunity to promote the return of popular shows and attract new and existing viewers.
I personally am looking forward to this week, as some of my favorites return on The CW and ABC. Without further ado, here is when some of this seasons most acclaimed and beloved shows are returning to the air, as well as some new shows arriving. Also, here is how to catch up in case you missed the premier of any of your favorites. All times listed are in Eastern Time.
So it begins, award season. Movies, music, TV, sports - all sorts of awards. Stars come out to walk the red carpets and we all gush over the best and worst fashions.
More important than fashion, though, is why the stars are there. Films, television shows, music, all sorts of different art; these awards ceremonies represent the best of the best in their respective industries.
The first award show to kick off the season is the Golden Globes. The 75th Annual Golden Globes took place on Sunday, January 7th, hosted by Seth Myers. For three quarters of a century, the Golden Globes have been identifying the best of the best in television and film. As we currently live in a golden age of TV, there is a lot to be said for the shows nominated, and of course awarded, this year.
Presented here are some of the big winners, along with how you can use the best TV and fastest Internet in Cincinnati through Cincinnati Bell to experience the awarded television masterpieces:
Net Neutrality has been a hot topic over the past few months, and with the FCC’s recent decision to repeal Net Neutrality regulations, it’s nearly impossible to go online without seeing something about it.

However with Fioptics TV, problems like these are things of the past. With a few clicks of your remote, you can access all sorts of cool features to enhance your viewing experience.
Christmas time – the season of cookies, pajamas, and of course, holiday TV specials. What better way to spread Christmas cheer than sitting on your couch in fuzzy clothes with a mug of something sweet and warm? Lucky for us, Santa came early with an overwhelming supply of holiday TV.
