Just to be the fly in the ointment...

 

Putting the "what's hot" channels into the mix seems like an odd thing to me.

 

Consider...

 

You get on the "what's hot" list by being the most heavily viewed channels...  so if you're already "hot" you need the exposure on the multichannel view less than a less "hot" channel, don't you?

 

I would actually propose the inverse...  take the least hot channels and put them into the multichannel view to help "sell" some of those channels to a new audience.

THANK YOU DISH-
Today they have the NEWS MIX ON.  I am happy.  This was at 9AM when I watch all the news.  It did have ESPN in one of the boxes, but close enough.  ESPN was showing Sports news at the time so I guess that counts.

We are making great progress on making this channel usable. Dish is listening to us.
We are almost there. Just need a few more tweaks.
-
1. When doing the News Mix channel we need MSBC on there instead of ESPN, ESPN is sports. MSNBC is news. ALso CNBC does not show news on weekends (showing infomercials now) can we please add one of the other international channels that we all get?
-
2. Need to put in the guide what kind of mix is going on right now. News, Kids, HBO, General cable. That way we dont tune to it if we are not interested in it.
-
3. Schedule. I suggest,
-
News Mix 6am to 11am every day including Sat and Sunday plus during any national breaking news like Hurricains, tornado outbreaks, and also international events
-
Kids mix- Mon-Fri in afternoons
-
Sports mix- Sat and Sundays afternoons
-
General mix- after 7pm every day
-
HBO, Starz, Show Mix- only durring free previews
