    "In the not to distant future..."

    I wonder if they got AMC HD or BBCA HD on the Satellite of Love. And what DMA were they in for the purposes of local channels? :p

    That's sorta what surprises me about the new name. Most channels either uses acronyms (CNN, ESPN) or very short names (FX, SyFy) and have simple logos that can be slugged in the corner and be easily recognizable.

    There's no good way to shorten The Audience Network, unless maybe they're thinking about going all the way down to "A."

    I guess we'll find out in about two weeks when it launches June 1st.

    So, anyone else check out the new channel identity? They're using the stylized "A" as the channel bug in the corner.

    It's only a channel identity, but the couple of promos I've seen are rather lame. As much as I disliked the renaming of SyFy, at least the promos were kinda cool.

    Wow, big ugly bug in the lower right corner of the screen. Almost retro looking.

    Some of the info in the guide does not seem to match some of the channel advertised content.

    Maybe it's just a timing thing, but on those rare occasions I flip to 239 to see what's on it's always Dan Patrick.

    They changed the name and I somehow survived. Same excellent programming and still on channel 101.

    I also suspect that eventually Channel 101 will be used for addition 3D content like the other channels near it.

    You're making the big assumption that there will be additional 3D content to add. The only reason ESPN 3D is still on the air is because Sony is paying for it. ESPN said that if it had to stand on it's own, they would have already scrapped it.
