It's good to know that Tamil heritage residents can get access to Tamil language TV programming. After all Indra Nooyi, Chairperson of PepsiCoWorld, Akshmi Narayanan, CEO & President of Cognizant Technology Solutions U.S, and Ram Sriram, One of the founding members of Google Inc. are all of Tamil heritage.

As someone of the somewhat larger British Isles heritage population in the U.S., I'd like to see some of the popular British Isles programming added to the Dish Network HD lineup through such outlets as PBS, BBCA, and Rainbow-Media-owned channels. I suppose, though, we do get them in SD just like the similarly large Tamil-only speaking population in U.S.:rolleyes:

Maybe that's the going rate, but I couldn't see spending $9.99 a month on a single channel, regardless of the content.
