I was reading a post on a website (http://www.theseason.org) that shows that the Shepherd's Chapel Network is going on channel 223 on DIRECTV 24/7 sometime today. I sure wish DISH NETWORK could work something out to get SCN on 24/7!!!!!

On the 05/05/05 live program on Shepherd's Chapel, it was announced that they would be broadcasting on Directv channel 223 24/7 starting on May 11, 2005.

The Directv EPG on their internet site says that the Shop Plus Network is on channel 340. http://www.directv.c...rogramGuide.dsp

Isn't it amazing how one person's trash can be another persons treasure. My neighbor just switched from Milennium Cable to DirecTV. One of the things that thrilled him was the religious programming that DTV offered that Milennium didn't.

Now if we could just get rid of those crappy channels like MTV and VH1

Shepherd's Chapel pays for about 4 hours of time on Channel 340 on DirecTV and buys about 8 hours of time on a shopping channel on Dish. Channel 223 is supposed to be a channel with 24/7 programming from Shepherd's Chapel. Pastor Dennis Murray announced the move to DirecTV channel 223 on the 05/05/05 live broadcast on the Shepherd's Chapel Network. He said they are still working on an agreement with Dish Network.

From a conversation that someone had with Shepherd's Chapel, channel 223 will soon be broadcasting Shepherd's Chapel 24/7. There are some technical problems they are having at the moment. If you call DirecTv, the customer service people are not going to know that the channel is going online.

I wonder when DirecTV will uplink/downlink channel 223? It was supposed to have happened last Thursday, but they are having some technical problems. I do not know if "they" is Shepherd's Chapel or DirecTV. I hear that DirecTV customer service has no information concerning this.

True. It is a complete waste of bandwith though.
How of much of the same repeated preaching is needed?

I do not want the "same repeated preaching." I agree with many on here concerning the poor quality of religious programming. I watch Shepherd's Chapel because the pastor there 1. DOES NOT BEG FOR MONEY (i.e. no telethons or "send in your money") 2. DOES ONLY BIBLE TEACHING (not a bunch of hot air, singing, and yelling that means nothing). I am not a religious fanatatic or a holy roller. I want to learn the bible chapter by chapter and verse by verse and Pastor Murray is the only preacher I have EVER seen that does that. Thus, he is not a repeat. I do not watch TBN, EWTN, Daystar, etc. They have way too much "send in your money" and very, very, very little bible teaching, if any.

If you don't want to watch it, don't watch it. If you don't want it in your program guide, then deselect it from your program guide. Even though you may not want to watch it, I'm sure that there is someone that does.

Personally I think that there are too many music channels on DTV, lets get rid of MTV and the ilk.
