    The pool of part time CINEHD channels used for part time sports channels remains unchanged. These aren't dipping into any of those, these are taking spaces that were left vacant after a bunch of RSNs and other part time CINEHD channels moved to D14 for its Puerto Rican mirroring abilities.

    The cubs have an good chance of being on dish / directv.
    Also NBC Sports Chicago plus and NBC Sports Chicago plus 2 may see more use next year with them takeing up all of the sox, bulls, and hawks games.

    They will also be able to add 103ca tpn 1-8 early this fall once T15 moves back to 103 (assuming T16 successfully launches next month) Lack of transponder space isn't really an issue, adding new channels / HD channels is pretty much all about contracts.

    It's now available to order as a $5.99 addon if you login to your account.

    Also, Epix doesn't operate on a 6am day, so when it goes live at 6am ET, all 3 channels will be mid-movie.

    Just called AT&T/DIRECTV (1-800-531-5000) to order Epix. A recording stated their offices are currently closed for general support and that their normal hours for operation are from 08:00 - 21:00 "local time" and to call back. Add this experience to AT&T's long list of brain farts!... UPDATE: Calling the Retention and Protection Plan numbers didn't work either. Was told I will have to wait until 08:00 "local time" to order Epix. Unbelievable!

    Regarding Epix:

    I don’t know if this is case with all…my account shows an offer for Epix for a free preview for three months. After that, it would be $5.99 per month.

    I tried to activate Epix online using the free 3 month preview, but I'm still not seeing the channels active.

    I waited until 08:00 "local time" and called DIRECTV (1-800-531-5000) again to order Epix. It took several minutes for me to explain to the agent about the new Epix package before she could find it in her system. Once she did it took several attempts for her to add Epix to my package. No free preview or discount was offered. After completing my call I added the Epix app to my Android TV. When I tried to activate the app I discovered DIRECTV wasn't among the list of providers. Either the lawyers forgot to negotiate the Epix app in the contract agreement or it's going to be awhile for DIRECTV to be added to the list of providers.

    I remember that. Makes you wonder why it takes these providers so long to do simple things.

    I ordered on Directv.com act management this morning around 6:30, this was before I read about 3 month offer. I called Directv and they had no clue about EPIX, had to spell out the name to one CSR. When I did get a rep that knew of the Channels she looked it up and said nothing showing but the $5.99 monthly price. Im gonna give it a try for a couple of months to see how I like it. Ive had it on the app before and it had some good shows..
