So obviously they will convert 101 and 334 to hard core porn...

Well great, now I'll have to redo my series link for Call Me Fitz to channel 239 from 101.
I might watch this channel more than any other non-OTA channel. I don't care what they call it. But channel 239? I guess I need to change a bunch of season passes. Wire, Underbelly, Damages, Fitz...
Wait and see how they do it. They can migrate old channel numbers to new channel numbers in a way to preserve the recording options. Not sure if they can do it if they merge channels. Can't recall that happening before.
A promo campaign for the Audience Network rebrand will begin rolling out on DirecTV on Monday. The spots will point viewers to find it on channel 239, rather than 101, because the 239 slot puts Audience Network in the neighborhood of USA, TNT and TBS on DirecTV's lineup -- the same viewers that Chang and Long want to draw to Audience Network (it will still be available on the 101 channel, among others).
While Audience Network will remain on channel 101, it will also run on channel 239, in between other popular networks such as USA, TNT, TBS and FX.
I'd tell you what, the "Audience Network" should try and get America's Most Wanted at its normal timeslot. That would be a coup d'etat to the network establishments.
It's a lame argument, but "the 101" just sounds cooler than "The Audience Network." Given that cable companies own most of the basic cable networks, I understand why DirecTV would want to create a "basic" channel of their own to sell, but the name is horrible. They might as well call it "The People who Watch Television Network."
There are other shows that they need to save / pickup.
Content is king. Who cares what it is called. Really.
Wait, what? I like "The People who Watch Television Network."
DirecTV must care considering they are going through the trouble and expense of doing a channel re-brand. Obviously they think a new name and developing a brand for the channel is worth something.
Yeah. Well. Marketers have to do something. But what it really comes down to is content.
Au is the symbol for gold.
Not that that has anything to do with the rebranding...

"AuNET: The Gold Standard in Satellite Programming"
Sure sounds better than using the full name. The full name makes it sound like it'll show a bunch of people watching other shows....
