    With Dish moving channels around, plus we have lost several channels like Soap Net, G4, etc.I wonder if we will be getting any new channels? There are many channels we do not have like BBC World, CNN International, and TV One. Any channels others would like to see added?

    Good point: regardless of what channels should be added, it seems like we have lost a few channels lately (Cloo, G4, Soapnet) and have not gotten any replacements unless I missed something.

    Good choices and I agree, it would be nice to get Disney, etc back in HD. Maybe they will get it resolved in 2014. The price goes up and we lose channels...

    True as long as you realize G4 and Soapnet do not exist. Also DISH has added channels.

    I wonder if we will get new PI channels to replace the ones we lost? It used to be that about everything from 9400-9418 was a PI channel.

    I have not counted PIs lately, but they don't have to be in the 9400s. Many of the religious channels in the 256-268 range would qualify as PIs. CSPAN and NASA are PIs. Channel 82 FeTV is a PI.

    If the PI count is low DISH will offer carriage to more potential PIs. But with PIs paying for distribution there is always the chance that there will not be enough potential PIs willing to pay. As long as DISH offers carriage they have done their part.

    We used to get so many college PI stations like UoW, Florida, Arizona, etc. I wish we would get more of those again. I just don't get excited about Rel stations. We have too many. A few do run some old TV stations though. Russia Today, CCTV, etc are great to have.

    the new channels i see coming to Dish are The Longhorn Network, ESPN U HD, SEC Network, Disney Junior, and the return of the HD channels of Disney Channel, Disney XD, ABC Family and ESPNews, which were removed almost 4 years to start the big Dish/Disney dispute which was further prolonged by a few lawsuits.

    I guess Direct dropped the Weather Channel as they had an increase in rates and did not want to pay them, so they have Weather Nation now.
