    Transponder 50002 ... not a real transponder. Both 50001 and 50002 are virtual transponders used for streamed content.
    I need to teach the program how to handle five digit numbers. :)

    Got it. So all those SVOD channels aren't taking up bandwidth that standard linear channels would?

    The only satellite bandwidth they consume is in tables (EPG and indexes saying the channels exist). The actual content is streamed over the Internet (Hopper or Joey connected to the Internet required).

    I have a VIP211k so I don't see this content. But is this content on-demand episodes for shows of the network, or is it a live stream of the network? Because if they are live streams, wouldn't that benefit Dish to have it for every channel just in case there is a storm or the signal goes out?

    If DISH has the streaming rights to the channel that makes sense. Some of dishes streaming channels are simply VOD content for what you get via satellite. Some of dishes streaming channels are live stream of content not carried on satellite.

    If you have high speed internet, you can get a Fire Stick and get the On Demand content from Dish Anywhere. No live stream is available. But if I miss a movie like on TCM, and forget to DVR it, I can catch it again on the TCM channel app or Dish Anywhere. I also have the vip 211k.
