    Well ... maybe in SD. It is in the guide and marked "Preview" in Uplink Activity but has not been moved out of the engineering test channels - so when tuned I get a "005 smart card not authorized" error. Perhaps it will be taken out of engineering when DISH notices?

    I don't have any channel 290 or 294 yet. This will be the first time they have offered WFN in SD if it does happen.

    What's next.... "World Checkers Channel?" Or maybe "The Water Dripping Channel?" Hope this is a PPV channel.

    Sounds like watching Golf on TV... Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Something for everyone, I guess....

    I have Platinum and watch WFN all the time. I enjoy fishing and enjoy watching it on TV sometimes also.

    Actually I have been surprised by the WFN. I had 1st thought it was just going to be some Bass fishing channel with Hank, and the rest, trolling around talking to talk.
    Instead it has lots of varitey, Love the Kayak fishing show, lots of good cooking shows, as well as a lot of the shows being, pretty good travel shows, at the sametime. When was the last time you saw one of those Bass guys go ice fishing and then do a polar bear swim in a bikini? All the while explaining the big event.
    As a Kayak fisher, being able to see and hear the story of a guy that caught a Halibut over 180lbs, and the rest of the show up in Alaska was a lot of fun.

    It was at least as clever as your reply, which was kind of the point. :D
