If you don't have one fine, I just thought I'd ask.

So AVS has one?

Not that I know of but I really have not looked. I generally keep my own lists ... which could be printed from my website but there is information at the bottom of the page that goes beyond the list in this thread.

My initial thought was to take the image and print it ... which should be an easy thing to do although using the image may cut a channel in half. About the only way I see to do a nicely formatted presentation is to do yet another version of the list. One more list seems like yet another reason for people to argue over counts. But I suppose if you want something concise ...

Enjoy.

Sony Movie Channel on E* is really expensive. It cost them FX, Nat Geo, 19 FSN affiliates, MSG and MSG Plus. I'm sure glad I got D*. I'll take local sports and original shows over old movies any day.:eek:

I guess you can remove FX, Nat Geo, and some FSNs from Dish's side.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

OK ... but add Sony.

DISH didn't have those in HD.

It has only been a couple of days ... so noted but not pulled since they will be back.

Channel number and subscription level lready noted in the file (although I forgot to pull the footnote).
When DirecTV makes up their mind the channel won't be red. :)

BTW: ATT UVerse is listed as having Sony Movie Channel on the SMC website.

This list will be updated tomorrow.

EDIT: I will update it tonight. I had planned on getting to it this afternoon, but I won't have access to the proper version of Excel until later.

I am not sure if I should remove channels which have been taken down during a carriage dispute or not. I am leaning towards removing them until there is a resolution, but I am open to suggestions. Thoughts?

I'd note them but not remove them. The disputes are temporary ... the channels will be back. I'd treat them like part time channels ... carriage space reserved but just no content carried at this time.

For longer disputes (several months, not a few days) where there is no negotiation underway removal seems fair. But on channels where there is an active dispute the channel should not be removed.

Sounds good to me. That makes sense. I will work out a way to do that.

I would agree with this. Seems a fair way to make the comparison as there will most likely be more of this as the content providers get more aggressive.

Because you were asking for feedback. I totally agree with this. Maybe a different color or obvious note to show HD stations that are in dispute. It should be clearly noted so its easy to tell.

Perhaps you could leave the color the same, but just put an "X" over the box?

Good idea. I will play around with a few different options tonight and see how it works out.

The list has been updated. Added MegaTV HD for DirecTV. Added Sony HD for Dish (I'll wait for DirecTV until we hear something official). Altered the status of those channels involved in disputes.
