just wondering - what is the story on Ch 499 at Echostar?

many On line TV guides list it as: 499 - Pleasure (or something like that)....
But i hear it doesn't exist....

What is the story, if there is one to tell?

This channel was dropped on September 5, 2001. At the same time, channel 493 was added. See http://ekb.dbstalk.com/247 for a detailed history of channel changes on Dish Network.
