Even 9X is good channel..they said 3009 March :)) because, it looks like it is going to be 3009 not early 2009 :))

I think, they should update DirectTV website which says Coming Soon or something......


9X is planning USA launch but don't know if it is on Directv or Dish

It does show in the map about the planned areas of launch, but does anyone know when this might be?

and what about COLORS, any news on that?

For Directv, has anyone mentioned any other dates, rather than just by the end of March?

You are right but I think launching multiple channels together is much easier then one at a time. This is the reason they delayed UTV movies channel launch.

I called Directv to make changes to my account and I was told again that new channels will launch this month and will be part of HindiDirect I package. This was hindi CSR.

I called the English CSR and he said there are channels coming but he couldn't share any information. So, looks like they are coming but not sure which date though.

Same thing happened here. Very confidently, the Hindi Csr told me I should wait to make any changes cause the channels were going to launch anytime this month.

Directv has a international dish which has both hindi and english channels but you can't get HD channels through this dish. If you want to watch HD channels then you would require a slimline dish which is huge.

By the way i called directv and they only mentioned two channels (UTV movies and NDTV good times) and I hope that is invalid as I want to see NDTV Profit and that punjabi channel.

I will try calling indian CSR today :)

Good luck gdeep!

Correct me if I'm wrong. Back in November 2008, DISH Network is currently simplifying their international packaging. Alpha ETC Punjabi is merged with ZEE Punjabi in the UK. Harmandir Sahib programming is still there with a logo blocking PTC.

By our scenario starting vector May 2009. PTC Punjabi will have longer Harmandir Sahib programs on DirecTV's HindiDirect. Over on DISH, Alpha ETC Punjabi and MH One are gone. Zee Punjabi, new channel Just Punjabi TV (NDTV) and JUS Punjabi (New York) are available.
