That may explain why ch 126 went from green to red in my EPG.
An E* subscriber continuously since February 1997.

No. BabyTV filled the place left when Research ceased broadcasting.
KBS returned today with the rest of the PIs. It is on 72.7.

I can't think of any others that you would have lost.
Your complete arc is 119-110-129 which gives you all the core channels.

For some reason KBS is only on 121, 118 and 72.7 (was 61.5).
I assume that once DISH finds a solution for 77 that most channels will go back to where they were (with the planned HD moves off of 61.5 resuming).

I believe Fox's BabyTV became available January 19th ... on channel 126 replacing BabyFirstTV in the "a la carte" lineup.

Babyto is available on 824 for free on the latino package. Not sure if it is just a free preview.
