Jag isn't on other channels.

JAG is available for $13-$17 per season on DVD through Amazon, and the final season is $25. If you want the complete series, it's $164. It's also available on Amazon Prime.

Not sure on the other online services.

Thanks, but I'm not interested in buying it. It was free on Insp. And I was really replying to the comment that all the shows were also on other channels.

I see Up! is now mirrored on 364 (along with 338)

Yes but UP is not available to ALL PACKAGES like INSP was! (Just the higher paying ones)


This is a $$$$$$ issue,they tried to raise thier rates,I GUARANTEE IT!! (They must be very mad as I have sent 2 emails to INSP and they havent replied)

JAG was rerun to death on USA for more than a decade.  Losing the 156th rerun of an episode is no loss.

so let me guess, you are about 60 years old.... !rolling

May I remind you that you're not getting younger. Should you make it to your sixties you may come to realize the truth in the sayings "Youth is wasted on the wrong people" and "One Man's candy can be another man's poison".

you are right.  Hopefully no one got offended by my post, it was just a joke.  If anyone did, my apologies.

Whippersnappers must live a very dangerous life. I've only heard of young whippersnappers; never old ones.

As a practical matter, I'm averse to losing any currently offered channel.

 

And, while I'm about the farthest thing from religious there is, I actually did, occasionally, watch this channel, now that it's gone  more general interest. Particularly at Christmas, where they had some interesting and unique holiday, family programming. (I'm a sucker for a Christmas special.)

 

So, while it's not something I'm gonna protest in the streets (far from it), it's also not something I'm happy to see as a longtime DirecTV customer. 

 

Also, a +1 from me for adding UP in HD ... Again, they're one of the core Christmas movie providers and seeing them in HD would be awesome.

as an aside (FYI)

 

Taken from phrases.org.uk

 

Meaning
 
A diminutive or insignificant person, especially a sprightly or impertinent youngster.
 
Origin
 
'Whipper snapper' is now a rather archaic term and, although you might hear it in black and white British films, those who are young and streetwise enough to actually be whipper snappers aren't likely to use it.
 
'Whipper snappers' were known by various names, all of them derived from the habit of young layabouts of hanging around snapping whips to pass the time. Originally these ne'er-do-wells were known simply, and without any great linguistic imagination, as 'whip snappers'. This term merged with an existing 17th century term for street rogues - 'snipper snappers', to become 'whipper snapper'. Christopher Marlowe mentions 'snipper snapper' in the 1604 edition of The Tragicall History of Doctor Faustus, when referring to a 'hey-pass', which is what street jugglers were known as in Marlowe's day.
 

But I'll seeke out my Doctor... O yonder is his snipper snapper... You, hey-pass, where's your master?
 
The meaning of 'whipper snapper' has altered over the years, originally referring to a young man with no apparent get up and go, to be applied to a youngster with an excess of both ambition and impudence.

In your opinion. Since that is what we are all expressing here.

Obviously there was a market for it.

Totally agree. My daughter and I watched a lot of Christmas movies on that channel.

Looked like they were carrying more and more 'redundant' programming. And this is an industry wide problem, most channels are moving towards carrying pretty much the same stuff.  How many channels do we need carrying reruns?

 

Weird the channel survived the Bakkers, but the industry wide homogenization of content looks like it is doing them in. 

The Bakkers were rich with a theme park ETC.

Ummm try again

Up! is in Family and Entertainment and above. It is not in Select (the old retention package). So if you really want to split hairs I guess you're right that one not publically offered package doesnt have it

 

Also Up is paid to be on Directv. INSP PAYS to be on providers. As a tradeoff of paying to be on a provder it is offered in all packages

It was also used on TV in the U.S. in black and white. I'm 74 so I've heard it a lot in my lifetime. In this case I was using it as a joke in reply to another joke.
