    The way this news release is worded it appears I and others "who subscribe to America's Top 200 and above" now receive Palladia SD. But if we are HD customers, we always got the HD version Dish offered of any SD channel.

    So does this news release, in addition to announcing the replacement of Fuse SD with Palladia SD, now announce a new policy indicating that "Free HD for Life" may not mean the HD version of everything in your AT package?

    DISH has updated their HD website:
    http://www.dishnetwork.com/hdtv/customer.aspx

    Paladia is listed under HD200 and HD250.

    It is also in the Platinum HD package, for those with HD 120.


    Fuse is still on 158 at the moment. Probably just waiting for the contract to expire.

    I never liked FUSE in the first place. Then again I don't like Palledia either.:confused:

    I'm now getting both the SD & HD versions of Palladia. What I don't understand is the SD version has a different channel number than the HD version. Every other HD channel I receive remaps to the SD number, except for Palladia. Why couldn't they put the Sd version on the same number as the HD in this case?

    Probably an oversight. One of the many numbering/presentation problems I see in DISH's listings.

    If I were DISH I'd add channels for 362 HDNet, 364 HD Theatre, 366 Universal HD, 369 Paladia and 383 HD Net Movies so all of the HD only channels are real channels and not mapdowns. Then the mapdown on 9469 Paladia could be used to give 158 a HD version.

    The other half of the problem is Fuse itself. DISH still has it on a test channel ... which makes me wonder if it could return and this situation could be a replay of "The WeatherCast" where a big "we're replacing X with Y" announcement is made followed by a "nevermind".

    well Fuse is really gone and it could end up like Voom HD and GolTV, most likely to never come back. same can be said about the 4 Disney HD channels

    For some reason I thought FUSE was owned by Rainbow.

    Fuse was. It is part of a subsidiary with MSG now, if I remember correctly. Losing Fuse is just another sign of how good the relationship is between Cablevision/Dolan and DISH/Ergen.

    To me, the removal of Fuse TV from Dish Network is no sad loss.:)

    It's now listed under HD120 as well, Platinum not required.

    HD Platinum should say "15 Premium HD Channels", not 16.

    One of my favorite channels back when I first got my C-Band dish was Canada's Much Music. It was a very original and ground breaking channel that actually had a lot of music and terrific on-air personalities (CNN's John Roberts was JD Roberts - one of Much's first VJ's). One of Much's trademarks was their building. They had no sets as such. Instead the building was wide up with what they called audio/video hydrants. They could take a camera most anyplace in the building - a stairwell, the lobby, on the roof, out on the sidewalk - plug in a mic and camera and start doing a show. During the summers they did most shows out on the street with passers by waking through the shots. It was great fun to watch. They would block off the street and do live concerts quite often. They still do that and you will see some of those shows on HDNet from time to time.

    Much exported it's formula to other countries and had locally operated franchise channels in Europe and South America that followed the same formula.

    Then they announced Much Music USA which I thought would be a great thing. The US channel was initially a partnership between CHUM and Cable Vision on Long Island. Much USA started out running some of the Canadian channels programs and some US originated programs. The US programming was not very good and the channel gradually degraded into a pretty much unwatchable mess.

    Much USA turned into FUSE and got even worse with music videos running inside a tiny window with other graphics occupying the remaining space at one point.

    I believe Rainbow took over from Cable Vision and now the channel is owned by MSG.

    I haven't had access to Much Music Canada in several years now and never watched Fuse, but I miss the original channel and it's concept. Someone should resurrect it for the American market.

    Rainbow = Cablevision! It's the same company.

    158 is currently airing a "thanks for watching our free preview" slate instead of Palladia. The EPG has been changed to match.

    It looks like someone forgot that 158 was a replacement for Fuse. :rolleyes:

    yeah, maybe Fuse and Dish finally made a deal to bring it back on the Dish Lineup, let's hope so.

    Even with the press release I couldn't convince a CSR that Palladia had been taken down in error. "It was a Summer Extravaganza Free Preview."
