The N has a channel finder which shows it will be on Dish ch 169. No word on what becomes of the current daytime programming from ch 169. Maybe it moves to or replaces Gas.


My EPG shows channel 169 is NOG N. DishDVR Advantage.

Just telling you what The N is saying. Today Ch 169 is Noggin during the day and The N at night. They're saying that on Dec 31, when The N gets its own channel 24/7, it will be on Ch 169.

Nickelodeon will just replace the feed of GAS with a new feed of THE N. So every provider that currently carries GAS will have THE N on the same channel it is on now.

Well I'm just saying, that at 9:51AM Eastern, channel 169 is NOG N.

Yes it is.

On December 31st or January 1st, NOGGIN / THE N will be split apart into two 24 hour networks. NOGGIN will remain on the current feed, and THE N will take over the GAS feed. It is up to DISH and other cable / satellite providers (and any contracts with VIACOM) whether to provide the channel and what package to put it on.

Well, it looked good for a while, with the menu showing Noggin shows for the next week, but at about 15 after 6, the Franklin show got cut off and the feed switched to whatever they show on The N at this time. I hope it's just a matter of some idiot at D* pushing the wrong button for some stupid reason. (NickG is still NickG at the moment as well.)

I don't believe it! It was nine minutes, actually. Nine @#$! minutes of Franklin and the Turtle Lake Treasure, and suddenly, bam, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Somebody please tell me this is a bad dream. Please tell me there will still be a way to get Noggin on Dish Network.


I'm not even all that upset about Franklin, though I did want to see that movie. I can, and at this point, I think I probably am going to order it on DVD. But if Dish Network simply isn't carrying Noggin, then that's it. I've been a loyal Dish Network customer for years, but DirectTV carries both PBSKids Sprout and Noggin.


Crossing my fingers that this is a mistake and the feed gets switched back soon. I will also be e-mailing Dish Network / possibly calling them.

There's another airing of the Franklin movie at 9 eastern. Maybe if we're really lucky, it'll switch back before then.


Kenan & Kel is on right now, the only show on The N I really cared about. I'm not watching, though.


For what it's worth, the programming guide hasn't been updated. It's still showing the Noggin programming.


Edit: I just talked with Live Customer Support and here's the scoop. It seems Dish Network's decided not to go with the 24/7 feed. Instead, they're playing it as follows. From 6 A.M. to 6 P.M., they will continue to air Noggin as they have always done. From 6 P.M. to 6 A.M., they will switch over to the Noggin feed. Regarding the programming guide -- I was told that the information would be corrected by Wednesday.

I'm... disappointed, though I'm glad Noggin will at least still be on.

It still doesn't make sense that the programming on the menu has been switched to all Noggin if that's what they were planning to do (i.e. continue a shared channel by brute force). This is bringing back bad memories of the old IFC/Romance Classics (WE) shared channel debacle....

Directv also as of today carries Noggin and The N 24/7 on separate channels.......

I agree, the whole thing is wild though.

Yeah, and if Dish Network had dropped Noggin entirely, that would have been enough for me to switch. Since they are keeping 12 hours if it, though, I'm willing to live with it, though I intend to contact them and complain about it.

Crappy GAS with their crappy game shows are still on. I am annoyed that we are not getting the N 24/7.

I wouldn't get pissed until after the weekly uplink reports tomorrow afternoon.

Dish also has to change Court TV's name to TRU since they also switched on January 1st.

The-N website had listed channel 169 as the new channel. Technically they are correct but so far E* is still splitting the channel, not carrying The-N 24/7.

That's better than nothing but it's creating a huge problem for anyone with a DVR. The guide is now all Noggin. The only way to check The-N schedule is online. Then you have to program manual timers to record anything.

I'll see what happens Wednesday before sending a complaint to E*. If they want to keep kids/tween programming in a block, maybe they could move Spike and put The-N on 168 full time. Spike always seemed out of place in that spot anyway.

I would not trust Wikipedia. They said that Dish Network had problems putting The-N on Channel 177. I was at 5:55 AM and had 177 on. At 6:00 AM they just went right on to their next game show on the crappy GAS Channel. There was no black screen or anything. The channel just continued like nothing has happened and it is still the same.

What I don't understand is if Nick GAS is off why does Dish Network still have programming on it. Also the Wikipedia article does not mention anything about January 31st.

Edit: According to this post http://www.the-n.com...order=&start=15 on the N boards that crappy Nick GAS is staying and the N will be time shared. I don't know what Dish's problem is.

I don't see anything on the Wiki page that mentions January 31st ... although Wiki's are notorious for competitive editing.

Whatever is going on, Nickelodeon is participating in it. The content on channel 177 is coming from somewhere. E*'s EPG for 177 is complete through the next 9 days. It isn't the physical "Nick GaS feed is replaced by The-N" as predicted. Nickelodeon obviously has at least three feeds available - including the GaS feed.

Best guess would be a programming dispute (perhaps Nickelodeon wanting two 24/7 channels in AT200 instead of one shared channel for their Noggin/The-N programming - perhaps something deeper involving Nick HD). The present arrangement (with E* apparently switching between Noggin and The-N on 169 and continuing GaS on 177) is a "status quo" for E* viewers. The same programming that E* customers had on Friday continues.

I wouldn't trust Wikipedia either. I've had a lot of bad luck with questionable information from them, in the past. Of course, I generally wouldn't trust anything there without checking it, but oftentimes, after checking it, it turns out not to be true.


And yep, here we are. Status quo. It only figures. We'll just have to see how the situation develops.


What I don't understand is if Nick GAS is off why does Dish Network still have programming on it.

Yeah. That doesn't make sense to me, either. I can't see what's going on with it, myself, though, because I only subscribe to Top 200.


That's better than nothing but it's creating a huge problem for anyone with a DVR. The guide is now all Noggin. The only way to check The-N schedule is online. Then you have to program manual timers to record anything.

Well, I suppose you could program a timer for the Noggin show listed, instead, since you would be getting The N show that actually airs. I guess the problematic thing with that is that when the program guide does get updated, that timer would go away.

What is wrong with E*? What is so damn difficult about getting this done? Nick GaS is no more.... put N in the slot and move on. The way Dish is doing business lately is really starting to remind me of Sprint.

Complete lack of organization. :nono2:

On the contrary ... Nickelodeon GaS chugs along on channel 177.
E* is NOT airing a slate saying "this channel is no longer available".
They are airing the channel that has been on that slot for years.

The report of the death of GaS is premature.
