    Smithsonian HD has been cancelled and replaced with CI HD. :(
    They placed CI HD on 374(the Smithsonian HD Channell) instead of 387(the uplinked CI HD channel). 378 is currently black screen.

    I liked the concept of Smithsonian more than the actual content. An awful lot repeats or just things I wasn't interested in. Not sure how much future the channel has anyway. I've seen news stories recently about the Smithsonian having serious financial problems. Not likely they'd invest a lot in new TV programs if they can't even afford to run the museums.

    I am going to miss the Smithsonian channel. I actually enjoyed it. I liked their episode on the building of the Udvar-Hazy Center. Very informative, especially since I have been to the museum.

    Platinum HD is too expensive. I was hoping CI would make it eight channels for $10 but we're still at seven for $10. DISH needs to make this a $5 package or make it WORTH $10.

    As for C&I ... it will be nice to see 24 reruns in HD. Does C&I actually sell any commercials? It seems that they fill the commercial spaces with long form clips of other C&I shows.

    Agreed about platinum. Dish shouldnt be taking away any channels with the price increases. They will now brag about adding a channel, but say nothing about taking away a channel:nono2:

    I know it's just semantics... but Dish isn't raising the price of the Platinum package... so the price increases to the other packages are completely independent of Smithsonian HD and the Platinum pack changes.

    That said... I'm on record as saying C&I doesn't seem like a good swap for Smithsonian... though I've also seen people complaining about the amount of repeats on Smithsonian, in which case Dish might not want to pay more to keep a channel that they know will be not substantially different this year than what has already aired.

    I used to listen to him a lot way before the crash, and learned the importance of saving money but I am afraid his preaching today will only make our economy worse:(

    But congrats for those E* subs to finally have these two HD channels.

    Apparently AT250 (Classic Gold 250) has the SD 206.

    The HD versions do not appear on my receivers (9476/9477 or mapdowns). :(

    Hmm... interesting to see (potentially at least) new HD on a Monday. I hope this is a sign of things to come during the week!

    Any news of these being available to HD Absolute package? Doesn't matter much to me really, I'm not going to switch to a higher priced package for these crappy channels. :p Congrats to those who wanted them though.

    I just did a switch check to force a guide re-load and I still don't see the FOXNWS HD.
