Though I have DirecTV, I have been curious about a Dish Network topic: I went into Sears today, looked at Dish Network, did some channel flipping, and looked through Dish Network promotional materials.

I noticed that Independent Film Channel and Women's Entertainment are no longer presented as split services -- and that they are now offered by Dish Network as full service programming stations.

I think this is great, and it's the way it should be done. After all, there's a reason why Dish and DirecTV subscribers have gotten away from cable, and split services may be one of many reasons, et al.

My question is this: How long ago did this happen?
