    Also noticed the Oxygen Network listed on 127! When on this one. Apparently they already have a channel number allocated.

    If its that important to you. I strongly suggest switching to D* rather than wasteing any more time complaining on these boards..E* has deaf ears to complaints like these . The only thing they respond to is money.. I propose you speak with your wallet and take your money to d* only then will they even care

    hey just something to think about? i too am fed up with dishnetwork, with no additional channels being added, except foreign channels, so i called direct tv ,which installer came out , and said due to the trees i couldn't get the locals but i could get everything else or i could get locals but not every thing else/ depends on where i put the dish, due to one sat being so far apart from each other. now if the FCC told dishnetwork to put all locals on one sat, to be fair, then why does direct tv have satellites so far apart to receive both locals and basic channels? is that fair yes i know the trees are my problem but the sat that has the basic channels ,has been up for along time. is this fair ? i guess i will sit and wait to see if dish offers more local channels in the future , hoping for out of market locals ? thanks for taking time to read this/ stuck with dish ,until i move.

    The FCC told DISH Network to put all locals from a particular market on one dish. That is not the same as all basic channels and locals on the same dish.

    Before local channels the typical count of channels in the system was less than 500. After locals the channel count at DISH Network is currently at 2315 and growing. Given current spectrum availability it is not possible to put all those channels on one dish.

    There's no excuse for Dish Network not having Yes -- and it's inexcusable for Dish Network not to have Oxygen. Having said that, it's also insulting that DirecTV does not have Style Network -- and dumb that DirecTV doesn't offer HBO Comedy. What they both further have in common that is mystifyingly stupid: Neither carries the Tennis Channel. Now that's despicable!

    It is not that I will watch Oxygen -- but the ladies in my house sure will! It sure is strange that in the span of a few days Oxygen would be removed from 127 and replaced with a Income tax channel!!1

    True. If the YES people were willing to make their channel a pay channel (like the Internationals), then Dish would be willing to make it available. YES won't do that. They say give it to everybody, and want to charge E* like everybody actually wants it. Go complain to YES.

    Steinbrenner wants the channel treated like every other RSN on E*. Why should YES be singled out for a-la-carte if MSG, FSNY, Comcast-West, Atltitude, etc. are all included with AT60+?

    George may be indeed be an SOB, but Charlie is a penny pinching fool. I'd love to see how may subs Dish has left in NY / CT / NJ compared to DirecTV.

    RSN's are, by definition, regional. YES wants to be national. Complain to George.

    YES does not want to be national. I have DirecTV, and I do not get YES, as I live in DC. What makes you believe that YES wants to be national?

    I'm sure DirecTV is not paying $2 a month for all 13 million subs. More likely paying only for the subs in the YES market and perhaps a small addition for Sports Pack subs. After all, much of the YES Network programming is blacked out outside the region.
