    Sky Angel is working on a mini-pack of channels from Dish Network that they hope to be able to offer their customers later this year.

    I sent the following e-mail to Sky Angel recently:


    "Would you consider working with Dish Network to offer a 'mini-pack' of
    some of their channels from the 61.5 W location? The two transponders
    that are unused there could be put to work.

    "Here is my suggestion for the make-up of that mini-pack:
    Fox News
    CNN Headline News
    The Weather Channel
    Bloomberg
    C-Span
    C-Span2
    Noggin
    PBS Kids
    DIY
    HGTV
    History
    History International
    Hallmark
    Turner Classic Movies
    ESPN
    ESPN News

    "ESPN could be dropped, if necessary, to make
    it more affordable. It would be nice if the mini-pack could run at
    $12-15 a month (or less).

    "If nothing else, it would be nice to have a 'News mini-pack', which
    would consist of something like this:
    Fox News
    CNN Headline News
    Bloomberg
    C-Span
    C-Span2
    The Weather Channel
    ESPN News

    "Such a package might be able to be offered for under $10.00/month.

    "Thanks for your consideration."


    This was the reply:

    "Subject: FW: Programming (A Dish Network email)

    "Thanks for writing Sky Angel. We are currently working on a Family
    package of channels that resembles the channels listed below as well as
    the price. We do appreciate your interest and hope to have that
    completed sometime this year.

    "Sincerely,
    Kathy Johnson
    VP Programming
    Sky Angel"
