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.
