    I've watched a few shows on Current found it to be entertaining.The only problem is with no guide info plus all the extra channels I get with Total Choice it's hard to not find something good to watch so I don't watch Current much.:)

    Perhaps I was mistaken, I thought it was 6 but wikipedia says 5. I don't live in LA so I can't check


    Did TBN get an FCC ok for channel 75? I thought virtual channel numbers were assigned

    According to Wikipedia TBN asked the ATSC (the Advanced Television Standards Comittee) for permission to use 75. Since there no longer are any ch 75's OTA the number was fair game.

    This may open the doors for major network afilliates taking a similar route, using the NYC/LA channel numbers CBS 2, NBC 4, FOX 5, ABC 7.

    Fox is 11 in LA, 5 is KTLA. I wonder how well using numbers past 69 is supported.

    Pax/I just acquired the Sony library also.

    Quote:

    Under the terms of the agreement, ION will have access to many of SPT’s most popular TV series from the last three decades, including “Charlie’s Angels,” “Starsky & Hutch,” “The Partridge Family,” “The Monkees” and “Silver Spoons,” among others.

    In addition, titles from Sony’s extensive library of theatrical films will be available to ION, including “A River Runs Through It,” “Oliver!,” “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” “Short Circuit” and many more.

    The "Men's Channel" only is for selling us stuff we don't need? That is what I see when flipping channels

    I wonder why the I Network isn't part of the Dish Family package. It is family oriented and I would be a cheap channel to put in the package. From the programming it has had with infomericials and primetime reruns as Pax, I don't see why its not part of the package.

    I also thought since we have a local I Network station they don't carry in locals (since they don't carry any I locals) that customers would get I even if they didn't have the Top 120 or higher.

    I never used to watch PAX or I, but Mama's Family is a great show. I also could swear I saw Pirates of the Caribbean on it one evening. If they have that big of movies, I'm sure I'll be catching a few.
