    I have no frame of reference for what this is. The website doesn't ...make sense to me.

    That was not what came up when I hit the Home button. I got a bunch women in flouncy, flowing, technicolor dresses with microphones.

    And it scared me somethin' fierce.

    Bill and Gloria Gaither are Christian musicians and they have been around since Noah got off ark. I heard them in Fort Wayne, Indiana forty years ago. They do primarily southern gospel style music and their videos tend to be gatherings of southern gospel singers and groups that were popular years ago. Every once in awhile I will watch one of their shows on the local Christian TV channel to find out who died. :) I suspect their core viewer group will be 50 and older. I am no longer a Christian but I do like listening to the Gaithers from time to time. They remind me of my youth.

    If the new Gaither channel is a PI it would be replacing a lost PI ... not a channel DISH pays for.

    Considering the content airs on other PI and non-commercial channels the new channel is likely a PI. It replaces a PI channel that went away (I believe the most recent was KBS).

    The Gaither's requested it ... it is a 24/7 infomercial channel for Gaither Homecoming videos and music.
