I don't think I have AXS on Directv but I might. What is AXS?


Formerly HDNET, has some excellent concert series in HD and some pretty great HD original programing.

If Dish moves this back to the BB@H I will definitely miss it lol

I pretty sure they will at least have a marathon of HoW before the next season. I would also think sometime after TWD or in the break between the first and second half of TWD they might rerun HoW.


:D Hey I see you're a "Quacker Backer". I grew up and went thru HS in The Dalles. Been to Seaside many times and managed to wade in the cold water for a few minutes in my younger years.

Yeah, I'm a big Ducks fan. That is the reason I will be switching to Dish from Directv just to get the Pac 12 Network. I'm so happy Dish and AMC have settled.

I bet AMC will be uplinked to Dish just before 9pm eastern time, just in time for TWD.

It would be nice for Dish if they did uplink at 8:00PM so you could watch the first episode and get caught up if you didn't watch it already.

My whole family are Duck fans and I meet my wife at the UO and my son graduated from the UO. It looks like this years civil war will be good with the Beavers playing so good.

VH1 Classics on steroids when they're running concerts. Great stuff you can't find anywhere else.

They run a lot of fights and other junk too though.


Hmmmm, if I lose it, I wonder if I can whine and moan and get a Roku or some monthly credits? :rolleyes:

AXS is on BB@H. Dish will charge you for the package, not give you a credit.

But, but, but, I've been getting it free all this time so surely Dish owes me some kind of compensation for any loss.

AXS was part of the compensation for not having AMC. It is a shame one cannot choose whether to have AMC or AXS. (Gotta throw in the a la carte argument ... it is the Godwin of any carriage discussion.:) )

Dish has given people this channel before as a replacement for loss of another channel in the past, once the initial channel would come back this one would go back to it's current package. It is on Dish if you want to pay for it, Dish will probably not compensate you on this one.

AXS just went away from 131 (mid-song, I might add). Some kind of help/promo screen.

It will take a couple of minutes for the receivers to catch up with the change.
I now have the correct video on channel 131 HD (Eastern Arc).

The first episode of this season's TWD will air at 8pm ET right before the second episode. So there is probably a scramble at the uplink center to get the feed up, nice and public.


I have to think that is the only reason to put AMC back on tonight... for the Walking Dead... otherwise, there's no reason to try and get AMC back same-day as the deal.

Also... AMC was the only one of those channels that Dish had in HD before, right? so the uplink is really already there and probably only needs to be redirected and checked out quickly for relaunch.

The "others" not coming until November 1st... even though we had them all in SD before... kind of makes me think that maybe they are going to pick up HD feeds. Otherwise, why would they need 11 days to get the other SD channels back in their slots?

Seems like the mad scramble would be AMC today... then the others by this Wednesday... but that 11 days would be about right IF they are also picking up the HD feeds they didn't previously have for IFC, WeTV, Sundance, etc... and needed time to test those feeds.

At least that what I'm hoping is the case.

Oh.. and while I was typing this, I saw an update and AXS changed to AMC and "No Info"... so I guess they are working at it as we all speak. The trick for tonight and TWD on AMC is... will there be reliable EPG to set timers.

Hopper and 922 customers can't force EPG updates like other Dish receivers... If the Hopper works like the 922, you might can put it into standby for a bit and it will churn... but then you can't watch TV while that is happening... so tonight might be fun if you wanted to DVR rather than watch live.

You are nine minutes behind, Stewart ... try to keep up. :D

I don't believe AMC HD was up in test anywhere on the system ... so this was more than a numbering change. Many channels today are received in HD and converted to SD for the SD versions ... so it is possible that WE, IFC and Sundance were already received by DISH in HD before the channels were dropped.

I expect all to come in HD ... including FUSE, which has been off since 2011. We'll know more over the next 10 days.
