N has some raunchy shows for a children/tween demo. Maybe Viacom should have put it in Showtime.


Wow talk about overreacting, stop being a drama queen will ya! I don't make it a habit of watching The N, but from what I have seen, it's not that bad. An episode of 7Th Heaven is 'raunchier' then programming on The N.

The N is currently on 119 and AT200. GAS is currently on 110 and AT250. I only receive 119 and AT200, and wish to continue receiving The N. Am I screwed?

E* may change the package placement of the channel, they may change the satellite location of the channel. In my opinion they are more likely to change the package location than the channel location (not much seems to be going TO 119°).

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.

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.
