    Dish - Can you add just one channel to a given package?

    Here's my deal - I would like to subscribe to Dish on the $24.99/mo package (great deal!) but this package doesn't include the 'Noggin' channel. My kids love it. And my wife would kick my butt if I cancelled our cable that offers Noggin.

    So my question is: Can I add only the Noggin channel to the 24.99/mo package?

    Thanks!

    EDIT: Apologies! I am a newbie here and I posted this in the wrong subforum. Can the thread be moved to the proper forum? Thank you.... again, apologies.

    Nope. You have to subscribe to the Top 120 package.

    Sure miss the days that Dish offered the option to add channels of your choice for $1.50 each...

    The problem with single channels is that the channels themselves want to be in as many households as possible. If the channels were available on an a-la-carte basis, then all of the less mainstream channels would not have the household counts that they have, and advertisers would not advertise on them, and then the channels would not be financially viable, so they would be closed down.

    Remember it costs alot to produce a TV channel, and you need to get it in front of as many eyeballs as possible.

    Miss the days?

    Did they stop it?

    I still get one UPN channel a la carte .... Do they only allow it for UPN?
