    On servicedesk.dbstalk.com it states that SIC Internacional is very demanding and is coming to DISH Network. It even states the channel number that it is going to be on. Does anyone know if it is actually coming to DISH Network? When? SIC Internacional is a Portuguese Channel that is from Portugal just like RTPi (RTP Internacional). All responses will be helpful.

    DBSOgre takes care of the service desk. Perhaps he has some info on this. I haven't heard anything about it. That's not to say it isn't going to happen though.

    See ya

    Hehe - It's listed there under "Desired Additions" - Category...
    So it is only to be "Desired" i guess :)

    In addition, it must be old/outdated and/or not very accurate, because for a while now - ch 614 is occupied already - "SET" - Sony Entertainment TV (East Indian) - on both 61.5 and 148 birds...

    I'm also Portuguese and subscribe to RTPi, SIC in my opinion would be a great addition. I had heard before, although i'm not sure from where, that SIC was indeed coming as one of the many new international channels going to be offered by Dish. Hopefully it'll come, but I doubt it'll have the same low cost as RTPi, at $4 a month.

    Hopefully it would come to Dish Network soon. I would think it might be on Dish for $9.99. I think too that It would be a great addition!! I can see more portuguese soccer games! :)

    BTW - The Paid Portuguese PPV Soccer Service, that used to be offered at Dishnet's channel 589 and then moved to Globecast (together with TV Polonia..after could not come up with agreement)... - I think now available and offered at Bell ExpressVu...

    So is TV Polonia BTW (with 2 other Polish radio channels that were at Dish as well)

    Hello. I just wanted to clarify that SIC Internacional is a DESIRED addition. I apologize for the confusion, but I do not have ANY information as to the negotiations (if there are any) between SIC Internacional and Dish Network. Sorry. :(

    LOL - i interpreted it correctly then (the DESIRED thinggy) :)

    as to Portuguese PPV service, Vr1, i believe Ogre was asking how much it was over at Dishnet (at the time it was being offered to Dishnet Subscribers)...
    I believe that package was quite Expensive...

    Over at Bell ExpressVu though - the info posted above by Vr1 is correct... to add - i think it is being Offered for FREE now for a month till the Sept 16th or something...
    After that it will be - i forgot how much - but something like 200 or 300 Canadian for the entire season... (several equal installment payments option is available too)
