I am now seeing two new channels both numbered 361, but one has a name NUTV and the other TAX.

What are these? Is there any announcement?
Thanks in advance,

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that NUTV is an information channel and TAX is to notify customers in yet another state that their legislature wants to tax the air above their houses...er, sorry..impose a satellite tax.

The TAX channel is to inform residents of Texas and Vermont that they will be taxed more for satellite service if a proposed bill is passed through Congress. If you don't live in either TX or VT then the channel will be blacked out since it doesn't affect you. NUTV is another infomercial that will probably remain there after the TAX slide channel 361 is gone. BTW, the TAX slide channel is mirrored on several other channel numbers. Ch. 361 TAX doesn't have a description yet, but there is a full description on channel 203 (and other mirror channels).
