    Thank you. I believe that the domestic Canal channels are available for subscription directly from their website if you are anywhere in the EU. Perhaps Canal is planning to offer the international versions of their channels directly from their website too. Or maybe they will announce a deal with Dish/Sling since they offer other French channels/packages already. Those are my guesses.

    The content of those 3 Canal channels offered in the US should not have any copyright issues, since there are no sports, new movies, or non-French series. So, they should be the same as the Canadian versions. In other words, why unilaterally withdraw from the US market when it costs nothing extra to produce those channels?

    I can't think of the names at the moment, but there have been a few others who left DISH and started on DIRECTV.

    Yes, TV Japan and RAI-TV (Italy). They were dropped by DISH as soon as DTV picked them up.

    Just like @dishrich said any HD receiver that is capable of viewing the 103 satellites can get these channels. Both my HR44 and HR24 pick them up. Granted I don't subscribe to any of the Spanish or International channels but they are present in glorious OSD 721. However I have access to all the Music Choice channels that were added been rocking out to K-Pop. :p

    It is not NHK World News, it is just NHK World... it is more than news. I agree that it should be in HD! Remember that anyone can watch any news program on TV Japan ch 2040 in HD without a TVJ subscription. Brush up on your Japanese!

    AT&T’s U-verse offers NHK World in HD. Does AT&T have a different carriage agreement for DirecTV regarding the channel? More likely just a matter of saving transponder space.

    Just saw this too. :( Any reason? I imagine AT&T are dropping them as well.

    Sorry, but no loss. I have no idea what either channel is supposed to be or who would watch it. I honestly think you could film a random 25 year old watching YouTubes and the result would be more watchable than El Rey.
