Since NASA-TV is moving to ch.286, does that mean we will finally get CSPAN3 next to CSPAN and CSPAN2 on ch.212? Or is that too logical?

Probably just logical enough.

Four years ago DISH carried the Democratic National Convention on channel 211 (in HD).

That could have been done on 212 ... or 213 where NASA used to be.
Shoving NASA into the 280's does not make me happy.

Hopefully something worthwhile is planned that will justify NASA's move.
If DISH is adding one channel to 212 they could have pushed NASA back to 213.
Why would they need both channels free?
