    IFC moved too... looks like it went from 298 to 133.

    IFC to 133 is a good move ... creating a nice movie channel grouping (although FOXMO got shuffled out to 384).

    I agree... IFC felt odd when it came back to Dish and was somewhat randomly stuck there at 298. FYI, I didn't rename your thread earlier because I wasn't sure if this was a known move already... though I was pretty sure IFC had been on 298 last I looked and I didn't remember seeing anything until today's uplink.

    I guess I just don't understand the purpose of moving these channels

    The first reason would be to group channels with similar content (or perhaps channels in similar package/tiers) together.

    The second reason, might be to make room elsewhere for new channels. I'm pretty sure on the first reason... the second reason is me being hopeful :)

    The "Fox Movie Channel has left" channel was on 133 until that uplink today. I missed IFC when looking over the moves.

    There may be some package changes that will be associated with the moves. The moves populating the 240s and lower 250s are interesting as that area had to be vacated first. I expect there will be more moves.

    Some of the channels seemed out of place where they were ... Centric and Logo seemed to be in a good place for being part of Blockbuster@Home. I'm not sure of the value of the new location. Perhaps DISH is considering adding a SD feed?

    IFC move is welcome. I never think to check the guide in the 290's but I often look to see what is in the 130's. I'll watch more IFC now, I'm sure.

    Like dropping HDNMovies from AT250


    The Dish Hits just keep on coming. Add unnecessary fees. Charge for things without explanation. Default on long time agreements. Fire disabled employees as 'undesireable'. Drop channels.

    Yeah, all that and then Spam us about telling our friends about Dish for a measily $50. Don't worry Dish - I'll be telling everybody I can about you. Count on it.

    Perhaps because neither is as much into Indie any more?

    The channels in that neighborhood (near IFC) are filled. Not that the shopping channels couldn't find a better home but I suspect that ShopNBC and QVC pay for the privilege of being near regular channels.

    I don't like these moves. We have the blockbuster @ home, and so get several off-brand movie channels. It was nice when HDNet Movies was up there in the 300's with all the other movie channels. Now, I have to fish through the guide to scan through the movies that are coming up. I'd rather have all the movie channels clustered in one area of the channel mapping. Just my 2 cents.... :righton:

    You can setup favorite lists containing your favorite channels, which depending on how many channels you have in your list, it could group them closer together. Thanks.
