    Is Dog TV 285 available as yet? I have AT250 and it has not shown up as yet.

    I guess Dish needs all of the money it can get. Long gone are days where everything ended up in AT250.

    Interesting. I did a search on the Roku and it looked like it is totally free and it streams live.

    Being a seperate subscription is not a Dish specific thing, it's the same on DirecTV, Xfinity and RCN. And like with Dish, it's not part of any tiers on those providers either.

    It's not free, what you found on Roku is their 14 day free trial, after that you need to pay $9.99 a month. (Compared to the 4.99 that you pay for it on Dish, DirecTV, Xfinity and RCN)

    AT250 has never included everything.
    AEP (the "Almost Everything Package") has never included everything.

    As KyL noted, this is DogTV's preferred method of selling this specific channel. It is not the first channel not in AT250 (or AEP) and it won't be the last.

    I did not catch the 14 day free trial. Thanks for clarifying. Sounds like it may be a ad free channel.

    Back 10 years ago when channels were being added left and right, the majority of the regular channels ended up in AT250. That is what I meant. Like the Super Stations and Movie Pack, those were separate packages, which I still have. But when Dish added BBC World and the VH1/MTV nets that were not in AT250, I felt things started to change.

    I'd agree with the argument that every channel should be available at some price (except those restricted by law, such as locals). AEP plus anything not in a tier should be "everything" ... channels not available at any price are annoying.

    DogTV is available. Just make sure that you adjust the inactivity time out on your receiver so your receiver does not time out before your dog is finished watching the channel. Or teach them how to use the remote (and hope they don't tune to 247 RecipeTV and come home to a hungry dog).

    I am not seeing it either. I wonder if it got taken down? On the uplink, DOGTV is tagged as "not available".

    When I remote 285, it will go to 286 NASA. I then switched guide to ALL Channels. 285 still not there, 281 is there in red as BBC World News. Then 362-368 has in red , several music channels including MTV BRT CMT. I have been wondering what happened to those music channels.
