El Rey was the 88th most popular cable network in 2019 - 95th most popular in prime time. Not too bad, but at the bottom of the Univision lineup. Other channels that low in popularity are either 1) not carried by DISH, 2) pay DISH to be carried or 3) are part of larger channel packages (ESPN/Fox Sports). With the guaranteed carriage on Comcast (mentioned by KyL416 above) I don't see it disappearing completely. But it is definitely a channel at the low end of the lineup.
