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"
