I received an email reply from DISH in response to a question I posted on their website. The email indicated that DISH was adding the National Geographic Channel on 7/12 on channel 186 at no additional charge to AT150 customers.
Well that is nice. There weren't many channels left for them to add this was one of the few that at least had some value IMHO. Have to wait and see if it is as good as I have hoped. Of course I didn't request it, figuring that they would not add anything until after the merger anyway
I never considered any of the list (including Nat Geo) MUST HAVE channels. Which tells me that my hunger for new channels must have been satisfied a long time ago. The additional premiums that are left over also fall into the same category. But a new channels is always a positive thing as someone is usually happy about it and that is a win-win for us all.
Perhaps one day if when someone asks about new channels available, the list takes 24 hours to come up with and we end up with only The North Eastern Canadian Moose hunting channel and nothing else to add
