    245 FIDO gone.

    82 COZI has expanded hours from FETV 2 AM Eastern , 11 PM Pacific with Simon & Simon followed by 2 shows of Danny Thomas Show. The guide has not yet caught this change. Not sure if this runs thru the night. Lassie that ran during this time is either gone or moved ?

    How many hours a day does Cozi broadcast on FETV? Thats 2 fairly recent additions with FIDO and TAG gone, I thought they would add more niche channels rather than taking them away? Any new subchannels that could be on their way to Dish? Is Fido still on AT&T?

    Yes, I have been hoping for more diginet material. Antenna TV, Buzzr, THIS, etc would be nice.

    Great...
    I understand that people like these OTA channels, [ I have an antenna, but rarely watch this stuff] I just find dropping channels I cannot get OTA like fido, cloo, pivot, esquire, etc.. and replacing them with OTA disturbing.
    A cheap shot, if you will.
    I feel like I'm paying for something I can already get with a antenna I paid for, and I lost channels I watched that was in my package that I paid for.

    The only thing that would pique my interest at this point is a flex package that included a half dozen channels that flex doesn't offer.

    Is it any wonder people are choosing something else?
    I already posted Dish dumped fido with NO warning. I found that to be crappy.

    Look around, the trend is now to drop niche channels that virtually no one watches. Directv has dropped some of the same channels. You are going to see more and more of it, there are articles written about it and even some of the executives associated with programming are saying there will be some consolidation. I'm not addressing the notification when a channel is dropped it would be nice to be notified. But for these channels does it really matter? What would you do differently if DISH tells you today that tomorrow a channel will be dropped? Channels that pay DISH like Fido likely was doing may not have advanced notice. May be a payment missed or notification to DISH that today we are no longer paying. Also some channels no longer exist or soon will not and is why they are not on DISH.

    Many of us do not get a lot of these diginet channels OTA. We live in rural areas without access. Like here we have no Buzzr, Movies, Heroes & Icons, Antenna TV, THIS, Escape, Bounce, The Works, Retro TV, etc.
    Us older folks like the Classic old shows and movies. Get TV is fantastic. I see stuff on there I have not seen since they were on, like Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. We do get METV, The Comet, Get TV, Decades, COZI, and Laff OTA. Strange since FETV is mostly COZI and Dish does have a guides for Laff or COZI OTA, I would think the OTA channels would have the schedules on those.

    Yes the tv industry has finally hit its channel bubble and can no longer support all the channels with mostly the same programming content. New channel are being dropped do to and older channels consolidated do to this. There is nor may channels for the available new and old program content. That dealing with sat, cable, streaming and ota tv services.

    I think one reason Dish is adding more diginets is that they offer different programming for a lower price. As so many viewers these days are getting greyer we remember and enjoy so many of the shows we grew up with. In the future it would be nice for Dish to offer a diginet package.
