MTV Hits maybe if it is MTV India, you're looking at the demise of South Asian programming on DirecTV.

Astha 648, Zoom 649, Timesnow 652, MtvH, 776

I am getting guide for all those channels and they are testing it out rite now, so its not avalable to viewers. By looking at the guide of MtvH I can tell its Indian Mtv.

My guess is, these 4 channels will be available from wednesday (12/22).

Hope Dish uplinks ET NOW as well soon.

586 - ALPHA [MPEG2 SD] added to Anik F3 118.7W TP 08 ConUS beam (NA)
586 - ALPHA [MPEG2 SD] added to EchoStar15 61.5W TP 06 ConUS beam (NA)

Only Indian and Arabic channels still exist on 61.5. Maybe on Wednesday 5 Hindi channels debut?

Looks like Directv is slowly giving up the hindi/south asian programming space. No more Aastha,Tamildirect (I do not see Vijay here http://www.directv.c...ooternavtype=-1).
Are they ceding the hindi space to DISH network? If MTV India is now going to be shown on DISH then the only Directv exclusive worth the money is NDTV 24x7.
I just dropped my HindiDirect programming and have subscribed to willow online for $14.99. The Choice package deals on Directv for current customers is strictly ok. A new customer special from DISH might just lure me over....

I agree with you. Times Now will be the substitute for NDTV 24/7 in Dish. I will come out of Directv when ET Now starts in Dish.

Whats the difference between 61.5 and 118.7? When I had dishnetwork (last week), the telecast was very poor. Picture Quality was very bad. I am not sure if that has anything to do with Dish or my 3 year old dish receiver. Any idea?

I finally cancelled my DirectTV. I told them that they dont have International Channels and same amount of American channels as Dish Offers. I made them list out, Zee TV, Sony TV, Colors, NDTV imagine, B4U, SetMax and ZeeCinema etc that DirectTV does not offer. Hopefully, in future, DirectTV do get serious about getting those International Channels, because DirectTV will loose customers if they continue to ignore the International Customers.
