Wow, this thread got ugly. So I'll just add what I was going to post--I'm happy AMC is back, and the other channels will be nice, too. When I switched from D* to Dish a couple months ago, not having AMC was honestly one of the very few hangups for me, but I decided to go through with it anyway. I really enjoy Mad Men, and was really not wanting to miss out on it. So I'm happy that I'll get Mad Men again, and will check out the other stuff too. Cool! At first, I was a bit disappointed when I discovered that channel 131 HD is placed on one of the satellite channels that we don't get in Alaska. (we still get SD versions of most of those channels, though) But then I found an AMC HD channel up on 5658 or something, so all is good. Oh, and whoever posted that the TWD season premiere is available for a limited time On Demand, I'm not finding it in the On Demand listings.
