    FYI, it's showing up in my EPG at 1:00am (I assume they moved it).

    I was able to find it using keyword search "launch". Nothing else showed up when I used that keyword

    There appears to be some rumors from another site that there are some communication problems with the launch vehicle. Nothing confirmed yet. If I see something else I will post.

    Kinda surprised it was a night launch ... I figured it would be at least dusk.
    But a launch is a launch ... Go Echostar 11!

    Am I wrong, or is this really simply a replacement sat, adding little capacity??

    This makes little or no impact on ability to significantly increase mpeg4 hd offerings......

    Yes. Things are pretty crowded in that slot, so it doesn't add much capacity to the 110W slot. It is more powerful, so it does add some capacity by requiring less error correction overhead.
    Not correct. This frees up E8 (which has spotbeams that aren't being used) to serve up HD content as part of the "Eastern Arc". E11 also has much better coverage for AK and HI than E8.

    BUT, currently the number of subscribers that have 61.5 is NOT the majority...therefore dish would NOT put new NATIONAL HD's on 61.5.
