    Will they be in the 9000 range or somewhere else?

    Good question.

    Hopefully John will be able to see them show up in Dish's charts on or before May 1st

    I have a dish at 61.5 and the High Definition Package. With VOOM going dark Apr. 30th and E* adding VOOM May 1st, I will be happy plus saving some money. :D

    I'd place my bets on the 9500's --- I have not peeked lately to see if the DishHome apps hiding there are still wasting the numbers.

    Then again, there is room in the 9400's - I'm assuming that the 90's test channels will go away after Team Summit and there isn't space in that range for all 21 eventual channels.

    In any case I doubt that JohnH or other peekers will see anything until Sunday Morning.

    On Echo 3 and not Rainbow 1? Are they leasing the transponder frequencies from Voom?

    I still can't believe they aren't putting them up on 148 at the same time... it obviously has the space...

    Come on Dish!

    Why can't you believe that?

    Voom operated them only at 61.5

    It's only natural to be expected that it stays that way.

    There are folks in seattle that could get 61.5, so not everyone past the miss is SOL

    They will mirror them onto 148 in the near future.

    I wonder if they'll put up those "You need a second dish to view this channel" on 110 at those channel numbers so folks know about the new arrivals :)

    If that was the case, then why does Dish mirror their international channels on both 61.5 and 148 (and 121 too, yikes!)...

    Just put up my 148 dish and got a DP+ Twin LNB and really don't want to move it to the other side of the house or have to spend money for a DP+ 44. That's why...

    No denying and not lazy... Took the longest time to get the 'family' to warm up to a second dish on the house. Now a third?

    I'll wait a few days to see what happens with 148 before exporing options...

    No. I'm saying take your 148 dish and swing it in the direction of 61.5 and see what you get.

    It on the west side, facing west... swing it around and I'll hit house(well, actually the back of my Dish 500 before hitting house)... Not an easy task.
