PAX national feed no longer on D* effective 9/26/02
Posted 05 August 2002 - 04:53 PM
Anyone heard about this on E*?
(It's kind of ironic here - our local cable (Insight) just last week added PAX national feed to their broadcast basic tier - we don't have a PAX local station)

I do see DTV's point of view but it is unfortunate for the viewers who will miss programming they enjoy.

That shouldn't matter - I have Chicago locals, too. Maybe you'll get it on the next bill cycle.

I always wondered why if my local PAX (channel 16 for me) is on, why do I still get a national PAX?
Probably since PBS and the others have network status and contracts between the providers. TBN, MTV2 (through marriage) Univision and Telemundo also have local affilates, but the national feeds are avilable to everyone who wants to subscribe.
I never watch PAX, my mom does and would be mad if E* ever did away with it. Yeah we have PAX51, but the PQ on E* is better, and PAX 51 and she hates seeing the promos for the 10PM news with the same morons from NBC2.

Any idea what will be replaced for PAX? DirecTV has PAX National in Select Choice. IIRC, DirecTV raised the rates by $3, and now is removing PAX. To some, that would sound like the cable company (only with digital and better PQ).

As Geronimo pointed out, E* negotiated the national feed as an alternative to carrying the local Pax feeds. I'm simply pointing out that there are numerous E* subs with locals who aren't getting the Pax feed.
I'm sure you would agree that paying $9 to receive a channel that should have been included in your locals package is too much to pay.
Now if Pax national feed were included in the locals packages, that would solve the problem...
