    Probably in package prices and fees. I'm new to Dish but from what I gather they do a raise the rates enough to cover two years then freeze it. Then they raise the fees for DVR and such the next year. I have been told they freeze the prices for two years but the basically raise them enough to cover those two years.

    So I bet your right. Even if AMC was back or not prices will go up. Probably fees too.

    Great...
    Any idea when?

    I had the 2013 price freeze when I signed up, due to expire in March.

    So my question is, how often is there a increase?

    Every feburary.
    Last year was skipped because of the price freeze but Dish doesnt do that every other year so just count on some sort of increase or change going down every Feburary.

    Are you stating that these will be in HD? :0)

    You are right about moving to a lower package for the AT packages.

    We was in AT200 and Plus before the dispute.

    Fuse was in AT200 before the dispute and never in Dish Latino packages as far as I know.

    IFC was in AT200 and Dos before.

    Sundance Channel was in Blockbuster @ Home before.

    All were in SD before as AMC was the only one in HD before.

    Whoa. Looks like a bunch of AT120 additions. Very interesting.

    I am surprised that Sundance did not return to BB@Home package. Not all of us have AT200.

    Further, Mad Men re-encores the recent season starting this weekend.

    It was an odd update ... late in the day. Perhaps they are not finished but for now the channels are in place and in SD.

    More people have AT200. Perhaps DISH could be convinced to put the channel in both packages.

    Interesting... no HD feeds... so I wonder why all of these couldn't have been put back up last week?

    I figured getting AMC up that Sunday was a priority... but logically, there was no reason they couldn't have had SD feeds of these returning channels back up by that week's Wednesday uplink update... the only thing that made sense was if they were perhaps going HD with them and needed more time to test... but if we aren't getting HD, I'm scratching my head wondering why these feeds were so slow to come back.

    I agree. Plus this is from the dish facebook page.

    DISH Hi Dennis, right now I do not show any HD listing for IFC, WEtv, Sundance or Fuse as of yet. They might be coming in the near future. -Jason S

    No I mean they likely reverted the listing to how it was pre- AMC takedown until if/when they add the other channels in HD.

    Its much simpler to revert it to the older listing then to go in and manually add the channels again. Then when/if the HD would have come back all they would have to do is make an incredibly minor edit.

    Thus why there not accurate until literally the last minute.

    I'm not seeing WE TV, IFC but I'm seeing FUSE SD. What's up with that?
