    So, after all is said and done, Lifetime caved.

    And we got Oxygen and Fine Living added for our trouble.

    I could care less about Lifetime, but I'm glad they won't lose any more subscribers to this issue.

    And now..... on to the 622 and 211 acquisition handwringing......

    I noticed President Bush made no mention of the Lifetime dispute, so figured they had to be close to a deal.:lol:

    DISH brings Lifetime back to life
    Wednesday February 1, 12:36 pm ET


    Echostar Communications Corp. has reached a multi-year agreement with its DISH Network and Lifetime Entertainment Services that restored Lifetime Television and Lifetime Movie Network to DISH Network customers on Jan. 31.
    Dish Network's contract with Lifetime Television ended Dec. 31 after EchoStar said the network asked for a 70 percent rate increase.

    Echostar will pay Lifetime the same rate it proposed before it pulled the channel.

    I have AT-120, I can certify that LMN WAS a part of the AT-120.

    Not that I'm a regular to Lifetime, but the substitution of Oxygen in the AT-120 may be a good thing. Insted of 2 womens orientated channels from the same programmer, AT-120 now gets a womens network from a different programmer.

    Hey, it looks like Charlie hasn't forgotten how to play poker well.

    Seeing themselves quickly get replaced (and not be publically mourned too loudly) forced them to fold their hand rather quickly......

    .... and we get Oxygen and Fine Living long term, for our troubles. I'm happy with the outcome.

    Now on to the next rant...... What do you mean my 622 won't get installed until AFTER the Olympics??!!??? :lol:

    "Fine Living" was never mentioned in any press releases that I saw as a "replacement" for Lifetime or LMN. It probably would have been added no matter what was going on with Lifetime.

    LMN was moved to AT180 as Lifetime's punishment for being a "bad girl" ;)

    From what I heard at Lifetime they'd actually be men dressing up as women! Bad indeed!:lol:

    I just got an e-mail from E* announcing that Lifetime has returned. The interesting thing is they list by "AT packs" the women's orientated networks carried. For AT-120 they list "We" as being in "free preview" until the end of Feb. HOLD THE HORSES! "We" was already in AT-120, now we get it twice :confused: There is no need for a free preview of a channel we already get!

    The "We" free preview should be for AT-60, otherwise it's a waste to keep a preview on when the real channel is already in the pack.

    Thats exactly what the preview is for. I get AT-60 and still am getting WE.

    I just wish they gave us a bit more warning before doing the switch. My Dharma and Greg recordings set for WE instead captured Golden Girls on Lifetime, forcing me to miss 4 episodes!

    Charlie Ergen, you're a TRAITOR for moving LMN, WE from 120 to 180, and keeping Oxygen and Encore Love on 120 in place of LMN and WE. I like those channels, but I like to apologize to Charlie Ergen for calling him a traitor for how I feel about the recent changes. I think LMN and WE should be belong to 120 instead of 180. Everybody has opinions different than others.

    WE is at 120 and will remain there. LMN moved to 180 replaced by Oxygen (a decent deal).
