    Just be be clear, you need a DIFFERENT dish, not another one. A SuperDISH 121 instead of a Dish 500 will do the trick. The SuperDISH is much wider and a little taller oblong dish.

    See if Dish is offering any deals on the upgrade with international channel subscriptions!

    See ya

    yep. Equity owns them. This use to be a Pax affiliate until Equity and Pax split on ths one (and WBIF and KWBS)

    I did not know about the affiliate clause in the Daystar/Dish spat

    Looks like you have to subscribe to ZEETV to get the International Free Preview channel(599) now.

    South Asia World Free Preview ending soon.

    More worthless crap that 98% of their customers couldn't care less about. We all should hound E* until they add channels to help compensate for this absurb price increase.

    Oh for goodness sake....
    The price increase was caused by a price increase to Dish by ABC/Disney (ESPN), Rainbow, Fox, etc. Adding more channels only increases the prices more!

    See ya

    Yes, this is really getting old. Every single TV service provider faced these increases, there's no BS from dish's part.

    Any indication that they changed the local compression scheme, giving fox affiliates more bandwidth? Do they even do that kind of thing?

    I might seem that way, but there is no indication that is happening. FOX is currently originating in 720p Hi definition which might make the locals look better.

    If you are talking about more bandwidth on E* it is illegal. All locals must receive the same bandwidth, regardless of the content that is currently on the air.

    Fox is free to adjust their feeds to affillates as they deem fit.
    Personally, I wonder why more networks don't use 720p instead of 1080i.
    I expect we will also be seing ED feeds in the future, for stations who want 16:9 without the HD bandwidth.

    However, because of the multiplexing compression system, FOX affiliates may receive more bandwidth automatically when the picture is moving a lot.
