    Do you subscribe to a package that includes Velocity? And do you have the proper satellite dish locations to receive that channel?

    I have had 5710 for a couple of years or longer with no problems. Thank you, Stewart.

    That's why I was asking what package he subscribed to... because 5710 is a test channel... and not one that anyone can depend on being there... and of course now it is gone. So the only way to get Velocity is to subscribe to a channel that it is included with... so IF he should be getting Velocity then he would need to contact a Dish rep and ask them why he isn't getting a channel he is supposed to get... but if he doesn't subscribe to the package that includes Velocity, then that would explain his problem.

    Velocity is now on channel 246 and is now on the America's Top 120, 120 Plus, 200 and 250 packages. i like having in this package as another person in my household likes some shows on that channel.

    Now that it's in 120 virtually everybody (with an HD receiver) gets it.

    The "test" channel had a long, interesting run. Anyone else remember when it was a fish tank?
