    Yeah I would like to see some more good German channels. I wonder when this one will actually be available and will it be packaged with the current "GermanTV" channel.

    Oh yay, just what I have been wanting, more foreign programming! :rolleyes: Who needs NFL Network and Ovation when you can have Polska TV? :rolleyes: The Feb 1 increase is drawing near Charlie, time to add legitimate channels or lose a bunch of angry customers. :mad:

    No offense intended... but I see a lot of people asking for NFL Network, and I can't figure out why. What exactly is on it? I'm not too impressed with NBA TV that comes with the League Pass or America's Everything... and have been thinking NFL Network was an equivalent to that, except obviously for football.

    Am I missing something that I don't know?

    Actually this one did not catch my eye until I was looking in the EPG today!!

    This is very strange, I have not heard of this before... Dish is uplinking a digital sub channel (KSWO is the local ABC, it is on 7-1, telemundo is 7-2 and weather is 7-3) without a corresponding analog channel!!!!

    I wonder if they are really uplinking the digital feed or are they just mirroring the national telemundo.

    If they are uplinking the digital feed have they done this before?

    TNGtony is not going to be happy when a lowly market like #143 WF/Lawton gets a digital sub channel uplinked by dish when they do not carry his analog UPN!!!

    Uplinked digital onlys include "ESBT", which is WSBT-DT 22.2 "UPN Michiana". (EPG Local Mapped as "30" which is WSBT's digital channel.)
    E* seems to be more flexible with SuperDish markets. :D

    BTW: Stations are supposed to be making their final elections soon as to what their "after transition" channel number will be - their old NTSC channel or their new ATSC channel.

    What it is that Dish is willing to carry these digital sub-channels and cable-only services when they are owned by a major affiliate or a major station group. When it comes to a truly independent and unique TV station like.... ...okay you know what station I mean... They just **** all over them. I still find it ironic that the "little independent satellite company that made good" ignores the only few truly independently owned TV stations out there! Why? Because they can.

    See ya

    Why do people care so much for UPN stations? There isn't anything of interest to me. I never watch it.

    For, a matter of interest is ENTERPRISE. Not everyone's cup of tea, but many of us like it.
