    Hello Folks,

    I'm just wondering if Sprout will be coming to Dish Network anytime soon? DirecTV has it, so does Comcast, Uverse, and Time Warner. It's a fantastic channel for the little ones. I switched to Dish from cable but forgot to check if they carried Sprout. Now my 2 year old is very upset. So, since I heard Dish launched this new satellite, I am hoping that means they will get more channels and Maybe Sprout?

    I guess I'll keep praying for SPROUT. If you can hear me Dish Network... SPROUT PLEASE!!!

    Dish has a habit of ignoring channels people want (ie Yes).. If it costs too much ....they won't carry it. No Ifs,and,ors or buts

    I'd look for it when it launches in HD (I think in October). It seems to me Charlie is not interested adding more SD.

    Of course, that is continent of Dish and Comcast not having any big blowups, and I do think the Versus contract is up soon.

    Hopefully we see it in HD in October. It is a great channel!

    I am hearing a rumor that we could see another kids channel in HD shortly... that channel being Discovery Kids HD.

    Having America's Everything Package I can say we don't need anymore SD channels(unless the price is right and prices don't go up).Right now I am more concerned about price and how much more money I am saving with Dishnetwork compared to the "other guys".;):D

    That may be true, but for the moment it's Discovery Kids HD. :)

    Also consider PBS OTA. My local affiliate broadcasts a subchannel called PBS Kids that has a lot of the same material that Sprout has.

    Exactly, the idea doesn't thrill me at all. Sprout has no commercials.

    And, then as soon as they do, people will bitch on why they didn't pick up MLB or whatever instead.

    Looks like TheHub it is...

    I have just heard others in the industry call it PlaySkool.

    Sprout would be great. My daughter misses it since we left Direct. OF course, any channel we get would be great. I watch a lot of tv with my daughter and all kids channels would be watched at my house.

    You can catch several Sprout shows on your regular PBS channel during the day and record them. Caillou, Sesame Street, Barney, Dragon Tails, etc.... but I have to say that after a few episodes of Caillou's little whiny ass I want to go postal.

    you must not come around here often, this should be called satellitebitchfest.us!
    Dish could offer every channel in production, in HD, full res, for free and people here would still gripe about something. :rolleyes:
