    It is on DISH Network's website under Pay Per View. $13.99 for 90 minutes (the SD is separate can be subscribed monthly).

    Well I didn't actually mention FSSW, he has them listed as fulltime... I was actually talking about the ones listed as part time on DirecTV and not at all on Dish, my example was FSHouston.

    And it looks like I was wrong about some of the others since I was basing it on the error laden dish network site. I didn't really mean to nitpick I just thought I saw things that didn't look right to me.

    Hoosier-great list! I do notice a couple of corrections that are needed. There is no CSN West as it was renamed CSN California more than two years ago. You need to remove the CSN West line and change the CSN California line to being available on a part-time basis on Dish. I don't know why this issue keeps popping up whenever lists like yours are created. I've noted this issue on more than one occasion in the past. The second correction is to rename Discovery Kids to The Hub. The channel was just renamed last month.

    DISH had it wrong in their guide for a while. I didn't notice the change myself when they got it right. Sorry for being one of the ones helping to perpetuate the error.

    I've been following this chart that someone is keeping over at AVSForum that also includes cable and IPTV systems. The cable system info is spotty though as obviously they carry different channels in different markets, especially comcast. I think it looks pretty close to this list.

    Yep I know, but only one RSN really matters to most people... their own. :) I thought it was pretty useful to me so I could also look at the coverage of other providers, even though I really only have access to Comcast outside of satellite.

    One thing I like about that site, is how they cut off all the filler PPV/Cinema in the counts. Plan and simple, here are the Nationals, here are the Movie channels and the Major sports packages.
    Hate all the filler HD Numbers, Everybody uses with the PPV/Cinema channels.

    That thread and the exclusion of RSNs was a part of the inspiration for this thread. The author(s) at AVS have decided to track RSNs separately.

    DISH counts "choices" (pretty much anything with a moving picture). DirecTV counts only 24/7 channels (which even though I am a DISH subscriber is my preference). My goal when starting a "count list" years ago was to explain where DISH and DirecTV were coming up with their numbers, not to create my own. But alas every list seems to need a counter.

    Just noticed another change needed to the list-why does it show full-time RSN's for Dish? As far as I know all RSN's on Dish are part-time. Am I missing something here?

    You're right. It looks like Hoosier205 shaded the channels green instead of aqua when they returned last week. DISH's RSNs remain part time only (except Big Ten Network).

    And Neither Dish or Direct have Mega TV. Atleast that I've seen.
    Directv also has NFL RedZone in HD
    Also , Dish Not 1 Fulltime RSN, Unless you count Big Ten network

    But how about Dish RSN's

    They are far from Fulltime HD channels, and Since MLB EI isn't even carried on Dish, That even less HD then Part time on RSN's

    Still needing an update (light blue not green on the returned FSN channels).
    Also "Subscribtion Sports Channels" needs a spell check.

    Agreed. I understand that it is hard to quote just the lines that are being referred to when it is an image, but please ... don't full quote long posts. Only quote the portion needed to understand the question/response.

    Since you include subscription channels, some of them do not have many takers. With that in mind, you might as well add the East and West Coast HD DNS channels that D* is adding this month to your list. Estimates on who gets them ranges from tens of thousands to hunderds of thousands. Depending on which SD networks you were eligible for, you will now enjoy up to eight HD channels in the 390s from BOTH coasts.
    Enjoy!

    Is the list going to get updated? What's the point of a list that includes many errors which don't get updated despite notes from various individuals?
