Really
Well when i signed up for skyangel i did it because of its Christ centered programming,
Now they are removing Christian channels and replacing them with secular programming, that is easily available from dish,
And you don't think the people over at daystar, family net and jctv are Upset about being forced off dish and also sky angel.

We may not know about Daystar, though we know quite a bit about them, SA says Daystar refused to renew their contract with SA) but we know about Family Net --they dropped off SA and claimed they were not christian programming to get on Dish so I would scarcely say Fam Net was "forced off" I for one think this is good. I am a SA sales rep and there are a LOT of people who want family friendly and SA but do not want the family unfriendly that comes with Dish. I think this is a positive.

I am really disgusted with FamilyNet, the following quote direct from their website "owned by the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention" - yet they claimed to be non-christian so that they could bypass the agreement between Dish and SA.

And I am a member of a SBC church, and would love to have been able to receive their programming.

Don't know about lifers like myself whether there will be an extra charge. It looks like that decision has not been made. Next? don't know that either but I suspect maybe the PAX station if what I hear about them going to be all info commercials is true.

I doubt Sky Angel would dump TBN, as I get the impression they had many requests for it prior to its addition. Also, the actual PAX programming makes up a relatively small amount of what is on Guardian TV. I think that they will certainly have something besides infomercials.

My personal guess is perhaps EAGLE (9715). I only pick Golden Eagle as the next to go because it seems the most duplicative in programming - similar to Daystar, I'm guessing most of their shows could be found on another channel.
