    Dish still has it. In fact, Sling World Sports is the cheapest way to get the BeIN channels ($10 per month) until the dispute is resolved. You may be confusing Dish with Fios which took BeIN off temporarily before the carriage dispute was settled.

    I like the post. It would be good to finally get Pac–12 Network. But, after all this time, and that not enough people canceled DirecTV (and then AT&T’s DirecTV over the issue), I don’t think it will happen unless Pac is the one which bends its knee.

    I wouldn't be shocked if we get some kind of weather channel soon-ish for the upcoming Hurricane hitting the Carolinas.

    Well ...

    While it's pretty much academic now of course ...

    But 3D TV service from DIRECTV seems now officially dead.

    As the satellite slot for channel 103 has been replaced by a standard HD CINE PPV channel 156. Reported by Kyl416 on the iamanedgecutter site ...

    [HD] Anticipating: Epix

    Last year, Epix and Comcast reached agreement for carriage. Epix is now carried on Comcast. AT&T’s U-verse carries Epix. These are the top two cable-television providers in the U.S. (Here is a press release from 2014: AT&T and EPIX Reach Carrier Agreement | AT&T .)

    Depending on terms in that 2014 contract, perhaps, but I don’t think it will too many more years…I am getting this sense that AT&T will end up adding Epix to DirecTV.

    Perhaps where Epix would be mapped would be as follows:

    560 Epix HD—East
    561 Epix HD—West
    562 Epix 2 HD
    563 Epix Hits HD
    564 Epix Drive–In


    Earlier this year, I was guessing some or all of the following may come our way in 2018:

    240 Home Shopping Network HD
    302 Nicktoons HD
    338 UP HD

    605 Sportsman Channel HD

    I was not predicting this will all happen. I was just guessing. With Epix, especially, I am not about to say when. But, it is anticipation.

    Wasn't Pac 12 originally supposed to expire on Sept 1 for U-verse? Is it possible they made some sort of very short term deal just to get it through the end of the football season?

    I would welcome this, I think right now DirecTV is the last to not carry it, Epix has 4k content that could help DirecTV in that area, Along with some originals that folks are chomping at the bit for.

    Optimum, Suddenlink, RCN, WOW, Google Fiber and a bunch of other regional providers like Blue Ridge and Service Electric don't have it either, while PS Vue only has the Epix Hits channel which doesn't carry any of their originals.

    Epix isn't doing an actual 4K channel right...just allowing 4K VOD? That's not a reason for Directv to add them if they have never thought it made sense to add them before.

    If they had a real 4K channel then maybe, though still the reasons why Directv has chosen not to add them (whatever that reason may be) could still apply.

    Hopefully BYU HD will be on DirecTV soon. Studio C alone is worth having that channel around.
