    I should have known what I have gotten myself into when I went back to Dish Network. I still like Dish Network better because their DVR's are better and they have a better layout of channels that are easier to find, have more premiums which I barely watch anyway and can do without, however they always have contract issues with channels which DirecTV never has problems with.

    Well, as for me, I've gone and done it. I don't care about DVR. Forget letters. I've switched to DirecTV. I started a thread about it over in the General Satellite Discussion.

    Well, there is definitely something going on between E* and Viacom. When I went to the programming schedule page on noggin.com there was a note on the left side of the page:

    Absolutely not. For 24/7 Noggin. And PBSKids Sprout.


    Oh, and, sounds like a contract dispute to me. I bet you people have been calling, e-mailing, and writing Noggin. Wouldn't be surprised if they've been doing the same with the sponsors / advertisers.

    Chill out.

    News flash!!! Noggin wasn't designed for adults despite what you may think. If you had small children you would understand the importance of having this channel.

    I agree anyone with small kids knows that noggin is a great channel and would love to have 24 hours of it.

    Heck, you're better off with enough Noggin + a DVR. Cause your kid isn't going to want to watch just _any_ episode of Franklin, he'll want to see his favorite over and over and over again!

    So if I switch to D*, I get Noggin 24/7 on its own channel AND get PBS Kids Sprout?

    I have a 2 and a 4 y/o and we love Noggin in our house.

    I am confident that Noggin will go 24/7 on E*....just like it took E* a while to get TBS in HD on the air....they are just slow in getting deals done...it will happen but just not in time for jan 1 like noggin was promoting.

    Why are they still broadcasting Nick GAS, oops I mean Sucks GAS. I guess it was not suppose to go online only because only Dish carries it now. I would like to see more than anything for that waste to be replaced by The-N or Noggin so they can go both be on 24/7.

    Correct Noggin and PBS Kids Sprout are 24/7 on their own channel places.

    We won't be switching back to DirecTV with their impossible to find channel numbers. At least they don't use the TiVo no more. My uncle said that once we switched back to Dish Network we were staying with them. I still like Dish Network better. Can't wait until I upgrade to a 622 receiver. I wish AT&T would just buy them and we end up getting a new CEO which won't have problems negotiating channel contracts which DirecTV's CEO never seems to have problems with.

    Wouldn't happen until at least 2009 at the earliest and even then, Charlie will still problably remain the CEO of the Dish side of things.

    kbue -- if you switch to DirecTV, you will get Sprout, which is great, and you'll get a few other networks too you're never gonna see on Dish. And you can probably get a really good deal too, like I did.

    If you stick with Dish, who knows when you'll get the full Noggin, and you'll probably never get Sprout.


    As for DVR -- the evening Noggin block airs some programs that never air during the daytime block. And Turtle Lake Treasure so far has only aired once, and that was during the evening block.

    I received the following response from E* customer service and I think you will all find it interesting reading...are they just blowing off hot air or is this the long term answer?

    Dear Customer,

    On January 1st, 2008 Nickelodeon launched The N as a 24/7 channel. The shows that are offered on the combined The N/Noggin channel are the best shows from each of the channels together. DISH Network strives to provide our customers with the best programming available and that is why we made a decision at this time to continue to carry The N/Noggin as a shared channel. Please continue to enjoy The N/Noggin on channel 169.

    If you would like to watch The N shows during the day or Noggin at night, with a DishDVR, you can record your favorite shows and watch them anytime you want.

    Your business is greatly appreciated and we thank you for allowing us to be of assistance to you. If you have any further questions or concerns, please refer to HYPERLINK "http://www.dishnetwork.com/"www.dishnetwork.com or reply to this email.

    Sincerely,

    DISH Network E-care
