    Now, since BBC World is included in the deal, why not offer the channel in AT250 then? Why Dish is reluctant to offer BBC World in a regular package is beyond me. Spectrum, Direct, etc all have BBC World in their regular packages. I have to find the channel in streaming to get it. Dish doesn't carry CNN International either, but at least I get CNN International via the CNN app, since I get CNN through Dish. Direct does carry CNN I also.

    Package placement is often part of the contract negotiations, so Dish may not have much say about it in the final deal.
