    Dish Absolute customer. Anyone know if 189/OWN will be available to me when the channel fires up tomorrow?

    Its Oprah's new network.

    It's in my EPG so it should on AT Packages in SD anyway. The contract for Discovery is up in two years..

    Personally I'm not interested in it.

    I would not expect any SD channel to be included in the HD Absolute package. I know Dish has added channels to that package sometimes... but I really wouldn't expect it even if they add an HD feed of OWN.

    NO. It shows up as green in color. That means you have to have a different package.

    :raspberry I don't want to watch anything that Oprah has on tv. She's a pain in the ---.

    If Charlie has his say.. It would be maybe, soon, or more likely, No. Which I do not mind. I detest Oprah and what she stands for. :beatdeadhorse:

    Friendly moderator warning...

    In addition to no political discussion, there is no need to bash a particular channel or celebrity-who-owns said channel.

    If you don't like the channel, don't watch. If the topic keeps wandering to insult-land, the thread is increasingly likely to be closed.

    The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) is on our America's Top 200 and above (not offered in HD currently), it is not offered as an al la carte at the moment.

    Hope this helped! :)

    Pull it from the packages and make it a premium channel at about $20/mo.

    They can't.

    It is not a "new" channel.

    It is a simple re-name of Discovery Health Channel and Discovery and Dish have a contract that must be fulfilled.

    The OWN channel is on there. I was surprised it was only in SD since it is Oprah.Lol
