Don’t get me started on Cincinnati weather. One day we wake up to snow, the next day it is 80 degrees and humid, and the day after that it is thunder storming and the temperature fluctuates every five minutes.
We learn from a young age about the power of rewards. Airlines use frequent flyer miles, credit cards use money back percentages, and some coffee places even use a traditional punch card. The point is to show appreciation from the company to their community.
Being a Cincinnati Bell customer has always come with perks – access to the city’s only fiber network, the fastest, most reliable Internet in town, the Connect Cincinnati app, to name a few. And now, being a Cincinnati Bell customer just got better.
UPDATE 3/28 - Due to rain, the Reds Opening Day game has been rescheduled to Friday, 3/30. Event information below updated. See the official press release for more details.
Since 1869, the Cincinnati Reds, originally Red Stockings, have been playing baseball and have quite an interesting history. As baseball’s first team of professionals, they finished their inaugural season with a perfect 57-0 record. The teams first ever loss in 1870 was to the Brooklyn Atlantic's in extra innings, falling 8-7.
The National League was established in 1876 with Cincinnati as a charter member until 1880, when the Red Stockings were kicked out of the league due to a refusal to stop selling beer during their games and stop renting out their ballpark on Sundays.
In 1881 the American Association was formed, where the reds would play their next eight seasons. On April 17. 1889, the Reds’ first Opening Day festivities occurred. There were decorations all around the ballpark, and the game was preceded by a concert by the Cincinnati Orchestra. In November of the same year, Cincinnati was granted re-admission to the National League and joined the other seven teams.
The first Opening Day parade took place on April 22, 1891, and was organized by team owner John T. Brush. The parade was made up of Webber’s military band and the Reds and their opponents, the Cleveland Spiders, pulled by two horse-drawn wagons.
Now 127 years later, the Cincinnati Reds Opening Day festivities have grown into something that original team could never have imagined. A celebration of epic proportions. This year is a little different, with the Opening Day game and parade taking place on different days, simply meaning there are two days of celebrations.
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.
