Polish? If they can add that surely they can add German as well. Please...
I have asked D* every time I call in for whatever reason to carry German programming.

I guess Poland is kind of close.......NOT!

How about adding more national HD channels like DISH?
The need to wait until they have more capacity in the 99/103 SAT slots.
The polish channels are going on to the 72 sat slot, which requires a seperate dish.

Right now, DirecTV has limited CONUS bandwith.

Dish got most of that capacity when the purchased/leased the VOOM content, and their sats.

Rumors are that Mega Cosmos, the Greek language channel will be leaving Dish on November 30, 2006 and will become available on DirecTV on December1, 2006.

Can somebody confirm this?

This is all going to the 95 sat location. It will not affect any of the programming on the main sats. The only way to get this programming requires a different dish.

How in the world will they be able to hold both dishes and aim the remote at the TV at the same time? oohhhh I see why the R15 has RF capability........ :D

Does anyone know if there are any plans to carry Israeli/Hebrew programming?
They did, it's called Aljazeer..... you watch it, switch what they say 180 degrees and then you have the Hebrew propaganda (kinda like watching CNN (truth) and translating to FOX (propaganda). :hurah:

Haven't watched Fox News lately, have you?

They've become a clone of liberal CNN.

And if you honestly think Al-Jazeerah or however you spell it is accurate...then I fear for this nation's future. THEY WANT US DEAD. Do you get that?
