    Please bring back honkytonk tavern, my favorite channel. I bet Nashville execs bought it to shut it down because it was popular and was anti-nashville because it featured real country music. It had the Texas sound which is far better than anything out of Nashville. No im not from Texas, But i know country when i hear. Do you hear me?

    Any channels changing packages after the price increase?
    Directv used to move something to lower packages after previous increases.

    Haven`t been home lately, but I think I saw that Directv was actually showing the Cavs and Blue Jackets using BOTH FSNOhio alternate channels. Did something finally change for FSNOhio, or did DTV make a mistake.

    I would wait to see if something has changed until after the NBA all star break. It was still Cavs-only being duplicated when they are both on just about two weeks ago when I looked.

    On nights when it's just the Blue Jackets or the Cavaliers, the same game airs on 660, 660-1, 661 and 661-1. When it's both, the Cavs air on 660, 660-1 and 661-2 and the Jackets are on 661 and 661-1. Would be nice if the CBJ also was airing on 661-2, but I haven't seen that happen yet.

    I saw them do it for the first instance of that at the beginning of the season. They are also showing the Cavs and Blue Jackets on both FS Ohio and FS Cin on both the -1 and -2 of each on the evening of 2-22. But it is very rare.

    Very rare, yes. But defiitely a step in the right direction. This is the first time I’ve seen them get it right in several years.

    Do you know the channel # and is this channel any good in your opinion? Does it present programs similar to the one on local tv, "Journeys In Japan"?

    I do not know the channel. TVJapan mailed us and I called them they were letting Dish subscribers know the contract ends on April 2 and to switch to DirectTV.
    TVJapan is aimed at Japanese speakers, programming is in Japanese.
    They do show Journeys in Japan sometimes dubbed into Japanese.
    A few programs like news and sumo do have dual audio, there is some way to switch audio, I speak Japanese so I never use that. Those are a minority. They do have a saturday period drama that is subtitled into English and so is One Piece. If you are studying Japanese I recommend it. This is a premium channel that costs $25 a month.

    As mentioned earlier in this thread, TV Japan signed a deal to get on DirecTV since their Dish deal is ending. NHK World is handled by a seperate non-commercial division of NHK that has nothing to do with the carriage of TV Japan.
