    DIRECTV says it will go all HD in 2016 , what about DISH?

    I took that to mean that every channel that is in standard definition would be brought in in high definition. (This would apply to standard definition-carried channels that are available in high definition.) I don't think it's going to happen. But, I think DirecTV will get a lot of channels...

    Soap Channel R.I.P 1/1/14

    There are only four broadcast network soaps remaining: ABC's General Hospital, CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless, and NBC's Days of Our Lives. There have been cancellations that are numerous from the past, say, five years. Before that, they were gradually...

    Soap Channel R.I.P 1/1/14

    ABC/Disney launched Disney Junior in 2012. The intent was to replace SOAPnet with Disney Junior. What happened was that it took some time to get providers on board to add Disney Junior to their channel lineups. So, ABC/Disney kept SOAPnet operating with loops. The timing is now there for SOAPnet...

    G4 gone: SoapNet and G4 ceasing operations/distribution soon?

    In addition to Oxygen essentially carrying female-targeted programming, and it being apparently more successful than Style, that helped make the decision easier.

    G4 gone: SoapNet and G4 ceasing operations/distribution soon?

    Comcast/NBCUniveral may want to push for Revolt, the new programmer that is a joint venture between the company and Sean Combs. Dish Network and DirecTV would be two providers Comcast/NBCUniversal and Sean Combs should want access. ABC/Disney should push for Fusion, from ABC and Univision. It...

    How much is Charlie worth?

    I think the point of this is that Charlie Ergen and Dish Network are penny wise pound foolish with some contractual negotiations for programming, which resulted in a few losses (for however long they lasted), and that no sympathy should be given to Ergen and/or Dish Network. That subscribers of...

    DISH Reaches Long Term Agreement with DISNEY / ESPN / ABC

    Isn't it strange that reports like these seem never to mention high definition? I predict that Dish Network will also restore the HD it used to carry from Disney/ABC programmers. (Thank you, Scott!)

    DISH Drops AMC Networks (AMC Back on DISH channel 131)

    DirecTV sub here. I'm sorry Dish Network customers are being put through this. Hope it doesn't take long, and that these AMC Networks return to the lineup A.S.A.P. And, thanks to Dish having more non-premium channels in high definition, I hope you Dish subscribers get all the AMC Networks in HD...

    I'm with DirecTV. But I want to ask: Does any of the Dish Network subscribers think that, in coming years, the MLB Extra Innings seasonal package will be available on Dish?
