    anyone know if directv /sonictap will be offering the holiday music channel 815 free for everyone again this year? started on nov 1st last year, but since its not on (unless you have the ultimate package or above) i was wondering if its gonna be on again this year....

    i know some think its a lil early for christmas but i find it very enjoyable :)

    Its on right now on channel 815 on the 119 bird.

    (Have Premier and a SL-5 dish here)

    So you need the Ultimate package or higher as you say, plus a SL-5 or Phase III triple sat. oval dish to receive it right now.

    Sometime around Thanksgiving it should be mirrored on the 101 satellites on channel 801 for all packages so all can receive it then.

    I don't know why they don't just put it on 101 full time.

    Kind of early for Christmas music isn't it? Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas music.

    It's the seasonal channel, after Halloween there isn't really anything to air for Thanksgiving unless they put Adam Sandler's Turkey song on a loop until the end of the month.

    Sirus/XM will start playing Christmas music on the 16th..I Listen to it on Dish. I don't listen to radio because they have too many commercials.

    The D* website under News and Inside Directv does indicate that Holidays and Happenings will be on 801 and 815 Nov 1 to January 7 but obviously that is not the case.

    i talked to a csr a couple days ago and was informed that holidays and happenings would be on channel 801 for everyone today the 11th. thought it might come on at midnight or 6am but as of 4pm its not on yet. guess they might not add it this year. i am glad that sirius starts their holiday programming tomorrow.... i got my channels preset already :)

    hope directv adds it eventually. however the holiday music on pandora works good...
