    A Message to Dish Network Customers

    Dear Dish Network customers - great news!

    BabyFirstTV is now available to Dish Network customers FREE of charge on channel 9400 !

    We want to thank Dish Network and the thousands that have called, emailed and expressed their support for BabyFirstTV. Your love has exceeded our expectations, and we are proud to be a part of your family.

    BabyFirstTV was an a la carte on channel 126 ($5 per month) until it was replaced by Fox's "BabyTV" (also a la carte) earlier this month. BabyFirstTV remains $4.99 per month a la carte on the DirecTV system.

    That may explain why ch 126 went from green to red in my EPG.

    No. BabyTV filled the place left when Research ceased broadcasting.
    KBS returned today with the rest of the PIs. It is on 72.7.

    I can't think of any others that you would have lost.
    Your complete arc is 119-110-129 which gives you all the core channels.

    For some reason KBS is only on 121, 118 and 72.7 (was 61.5).
    I assume that once DISH finds a solution for 77 that most channels will go back to where they were (with the planned HD moves off of 61.5 resuming).

    I keep my EPG either ALL HD or the middle one, so this is news to me, not that I care, I'm 62. When did BabyTV come on.

    I believe Fox's BabyTV became available January 19th ... on channel 126 replacing BabyFirstTV in the "a la carte" lineup.

    BabyFirstTV became available on channel 9400 January 26th.

    Babyto is available on 824 for free on the latino package. Not sure if it is just a free preview.
