If memory serves me right, the station tends to be FTA, or at least appears FTA for the first few days before it is available to subs. If not in this weeks uplink, I expect it in the following next two, but it will be soon...

Just for historical background, here is when the holiday music channel has made its appearance in recent years:

Added 11/20/00
Removed 1/9/01

Added 11/14/01
Removed 1/16/02

Added 11/13/02
Removed 1/15/03

Added 11/19/03
Removed 1/15/04

Added 11/18/04
Removed 1/5/05

Added 11/16/05
Removed 1/4/06

So I would expect it uplinked next week and made available soon afterward.

See ya

At least the start/stop dates are better than one particular radio station here in Chicago. They start up their Christmas music 24/7 just before Halloween so they can be the "first" ones doing it.

Yes, the channels on Dish are owned by Muzak (see http://www.muzak.com/ )

Their channels are designed to "create a mood" without interrupting the listeners. Or as they put it:
Music. Some people call it our passion. Others, our obsession. Inspired by the art of Audio Architecture, Muzak gives you more than just music. We create an experience - a powerful, persuasive experience that captures the image, energy and soul of your business. With a broad selection of core music programs designed specifically for business applications, Muzak can create the right experience for your brand.​

This as opposed to Sirius and orther radio services, where people are expected to listen to the content and not just the mood. A "Muzak mood channel" doesn't distract from what is going on at the business like a radio station can.

BTW: Muzak has a complete description of the E* channels as well as their commercial offerings on their website.

And for those with Digital Cable, Music Choice's Sounds of the Season switched over from Halloween music to Christmas music on 11/1 at 12:01AM EST. I've been listening to Christmas music on my iPod a few times a week now since August. :) Can't wait for Special XMas on XM.

I read from another source that Muzak will be tweaking the channels soon.Some of them have new names but Muzak will soon be tweaking them.I hope they don't change 973.
