    I got the Dish Cricket Package because I wasn't taking any chances... I notice the programming is almost identical, but not always the same. And on my guide now, 712 and 713 are both called "Willow" -- no more mention of Neo.

    Care to explain that? For your information, on some of these Dish channels the SD signal is received in a 4:3 window, horizontally compressed, with black bars on the sides (in the receiver's "Normal" mode). It's only when you stretch it horizontally that the correct original AR can be viewed. I prefer viewing a round ball instead of tall and skinny. None of the picture is being lost or cut off.

    Believe me, I'd be much happier if it was transmitted properly to start with, but... we do what we have to do.

    What I don't care for is any SD signal on a large screen. And stretching of any kind makes it worse, even though going back to the correct ratio is better than not for many.

    why there are two same willow channels in Dish Network. I pay $19.95 for cricket pack, but instead of three I am virtually getting two channels. They should discontinue one duplicate willow channel and reduce the price or add any other sports channel from India.

    What they have now is actually a good thing. The only rights NEO Cricket had was for games in India which have since been acquired by the STAR group (which in turn makes them available on Willow). As a result, when there are multiple games going on at the same time Willow has only one tv channel to show them. With a secondary channel they can have two matches showing and the viewer can make a choice on which match to watch.

    But the big question is.... WILL they be that logical? More likely they'll still be showing the same game -- of their choice -- on both channels. :p

    I don't understand this. The ten cricket channel in usa is still advertising zim-ban second test.

    Well, they do have to figure out how to manage it on the tv providers. Take DISH for example, they have the Mega pack that carries Willow and TEN, they have NEO aka Willow Plus standalone for $14.99 and then they have the Cricket Pack for $19.99. As it stands, they cannot show different matches since subscribers to two of the three combinations (Mega and standalone) have only one choice. I think in the long term DISH needs to get rid of the standalone $14.99 subscription and have two offerings - Mega Pack with both Willow channels and TEN OR Cricket Pack with both Willow channels and TEN.

    Just saw this in DISH NETWORK UPLINK report: (Says just ADDED to satellite, but it usually takes 1-3 days for the channel to be AVAILABLE)

    9997(712) - WLLOW [MPEG4 HD] added to Anik F3 118.7W TP 32 ConUS beam (NA)

    This is great news!!! If Willow will be made available in HD.

    Now there are two same channels on Dish Network. I think they will keep one channel as SD and convert the other HD. Don't be excited because they will charge more for the HD channel.
