    I tuned in to Channel 207 and found out that CNBC World is no longer available on Dish Network.

    Any thoughts?

    Maybe BBC World News or CNN International might eventually take over that channel.

    At least we did not lose an HD channel,maybe the reason it's gone will be to make room to add a different channel and it will be in HD,I can only hope?.;)

    Hasn't it been gone for a while? It seems like they were only running Scam-O-Mercials and repeats from other channels lately.

    Unfortunately, this channel is no longer available on DISH Network. This decision was made to allow room to launch other valued programming. You can find similar programming content on CNBC, Channel 208 in SD and 9439 in HD, as well as on Bloomberg, Channel 203 in SD and 9503 in HD.

    I don't know if it was a specific channel, but I can say that Epix Drive-In (Epix 3) was launched in HD yesterday.

    What does that have to do with world news?

    I can see taking down a news channel to provide a different one of equal or better quality.

    I can't see taking down a news channel to provide yet another movie channel running repeats of what is run on a half dozen other movie channels.

    We do not have any information if we will be launching another news channel that will replace CNBC World.

    RT launched not long ago (channel 280). It is kind of a world news channel. (It is also kind of a Russian version of FSTV, but that is another topic. :))

    ^^ Just curious if that has ever accomplished anything.

    Or is it kind of like "The check is in the mail" ?

    What? No one upset about losing CNBC World (not that I am upset)? I thought that someone would have posted an angry post saying they will switch to another provider by now.
