    196 going to 294 - Current (Yeah, I know)

    157 going to 291 - Ovation (Some good concerts here lately)

    What's the point? What is to be gained?

    Making room for some new channels they might be planning to launch in the lower #'s maybe?

    Also 156 Fuel moving to 398. Not a bad move as 394-407 are special single sport channels.

    The 290's seem to be developing as another "specialty" channel range.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see 197 DOC move to the 290s ... but there might be a problem with a channel placement agreement (as with Reelz when DISH almost moved them to 289 and then left them at 299).

    I don't see the channels belonging at the old channel numbers any more than they belong at the new channel numbers. While they were not particularly out of place, they work ok where DISH moved them.

    They might as well move ESPN and Speed to the 400's as well, then all the sports channels will be in the same neighborhood.

    The channels are being moved in effort to streamline our services.

    Like channels are grouped together and better categorized.

    You need to dynamically map the channels so that SyFy and USA, for example, move into the "Sports" range when they show wrestling.

    (Wrestling, sports? Hmm ... maybe I should have picked a different example.) :)
