    I don't have Dish myself, but i was wondering what really is Dish Studio Ch. 102. Is it Dishes equivalent of Audience? I looked on Dishes website and it seems to show films and programs from other channels such as Dinner at Tiffani's from Cooking Channel and Bringing up Bates from Up (why these programs from lots of channels?). Has it rebranded since it was renamed from Blockbuster Studio?

    It is effectively a re-brand of Blockbuster Studio.

    It isn't equivalent to Audience as it doesn't feature any original serial programming (FNL, Rogue).

    The current brand is "dish STUDIO" ... and it is a sampler of programs from DISH's lineup plus a few special shows (promotional programs about TV/movies) and some movies.

    Was Blockbuster Studio the same?, I looked at their schedule all the seem to have is programs where they interview cast members of shows and a few films at weekends..does it have no rights to other programs from other channels?

    The branding varies depending on where you look. Here's another version:

    It was effectively a name change.

    Much of the content that is shown comes from other channels.

    Because you've clearly established yourself as a channel counter, maybe I can save you some trouble -- DISH Studio is NOT a linear channel with a full slate of programming that you can't get anywhere else.

    It is a full time HD feed that is not mirroring another channel. The focus originally was on content from Blockbuster Pack channels. The current version is not limited to Blockbuster Pack channels.

    It seems like they've been carrying AXS content all along. Maybe I'm not remembering accurately.
