Well, that's strange. Dallas will, reportedly, be a DISH1000 market. Then, they add another local to 148 one week before Dallas is supposed to be announced as a DISH1000 market. Very odd.

Well, just because its a Dish1000 market, doesn't mean that everyone in DFW will be getting a Dish1000 in place of our current 148 dish. It WILL be made 'available' to people in the DFW market to meet the 'single dish' regulations.

So, I would assume we will see that channel mirrored on 129 like the other 2 DFW channels that are there today and will remain in the future on 148.

FWIW... KTAQ (channel 47) is a television station in Greenville, TX that serves the Dallas-Ft. Worth television market. The station runs shopping/religious programming. KTAQ is a full-power television station that operates with 4680 kw of power and is owned by Mike Simons.

It would seem odd to not give the new channel to existing subs. It is going to take a while to get D1000's in place. Might as well add it to 148 so people can see it during the transition.

I was responding to the "why on 148 instead of just on 129" part of the question.

I hoped that CBS-HD E and W would have made an appearance in 129 today - a week before the offical release of D1000.

bye-bye (for now anyhow) looks like - "574 FPCHN" :)

From TNGTony's list:

"Channel 585 which had ITVN poland listed on it with a (1) now had AAJTK listed. This is AajTak a News Channel from India. This channel is uplinked to 61.5 tp 12 and 148° tp 25. This channel is also on channel 794 tp 16 at 121°" ...(It's reported about this one: The EPG to say "Aaj Tak" .. and EPG Info to say: "From India. Hindi Language.")

"A channel named HT, presumably from India, has been uplinked to channel 586 at 61.5 tp 12 and 148° tp 25. This channel is also on channel 813 tp 16 at 121°
This channel has been identified as Headlines Today from India." ...(It's reported about this one: The EPG to say "Headlines Today" .. and EPG Info to say: "From India. English Language") :)

"JSTV (presumably the Korean Language Channel "Jesus Satellite Ministry") is now uplinked to channel 654 at 61.5° and 148° tp 12 and 25 respectively. This channel is also uplinked to channel 668 at 121° tp 16" ...(It's reported about this one: The EPG to say "JSTV" .. and EPG Info to say: "Korean content") .. Yup.. Jesus Satellite Ministry TV .. that is also available via Globecast (as pointed above already)

Thanks for all the info John! ;)
