    There's nobody around who wants to see AT200 more than I do, but realistically, I don't know that anyone can cobble together enough new channels to create another tier that folks would want to spend yet another $9 on. If it were like D* TC+, where it costs about $2-3, that would be different.

    IMHO, a lot of AT150's value comes from the Encore/TMC channels. Maybe E* could throw in Cinemax for AT200? :)

    How about some wild, unfounded speculation?

    * Maybe E* will ramp up its talk of dropping programming, then announce that they'll get rid of it as of a particular date, then "relent" and bring the almost-deleted channels up to AT200 for those folks who really, really want it.

    * Or ... one day, maybe next rate increase, I expect that they'll overhaul the entire tier structure. The new "Good" package will roughly correspond to AT50, the Great package will be AT100 with a few non-Encore AT150 channels sprinkled in, and the Superior package will be AT200. Good will maintain the AT50 price freeze, if necessary. Great will be priced only a little less than current AT150, "but we've got programming fees to pass on, and just look at all you get." AT200 will stay $9-10 above Great.

    Or, as often happens, I could be completely wrong. :) But it's fun to talk about.

    Try finding a new channel that does not demand to be carried in AT50 or AT100 at the very least. New channels want big exposure and big bucks.

    Yeah, that pack is definitely some of the worst PQ.

    If I May Ask, Where Did You Get This Information? When Will Dish Network Add These New Shopping Channels To The Line-Up? What Are The Names Of These New Shopping Channels? In What Channel Will Dish Network Move The Travel Channel In?

    WoW! Stuff Tv! I still can't believe the Sportsman Channel is still not turned on to subscribers. John or Darkman, can you tell if that channel is still being uplinked?

    I was referring to the lists that showed everything on the transponder, including the pids for the audio and video as well as the channel number. You had found them "somewhere" for 105º and 121º and thought that you may have seen something on these new numbers.

    Nevertheless, they will appear, as all information generally does.

    When The Dryer Channel pays Dish to carry it.

    Or when The Dryer Channel goes PPV with guaranteed minimums for Dish.
