SLEUTH ANNOUNCES DISTRIBUTION DEALS WITH DIRECTV AND ECHOSTAR

Additional Carriage Agreements with Time Warner Cable and Knology, Among Others Put Sleuth in more than 22 million homes by Summer 2006

Englewood Cliffs, NJ - January 12, 2006 - NBC Universal Cable Entertainment's new crime/mystery/suspense network, Sleuth, will launch on satellite TV providers, DIRECTV this Spring and on EchoStar's DISH Network by Summer 2006, the announcement was made today by David Zaslav, President NBCU Cable and Jeff Gaspin, President NBCU Cable Entertainment, Digital Content and Cross-Network Strategy.

"The major support from our distributors out of the box for Sleuth is reflective of the popularity of the crime/mystery genre," commented Zaslav. "Our research and discussions with our affiliates showed us that this was a network that they would be interested in and this recent announcement demonstrates that. We appreciate the support of our affiliates."

"We had a number of goals when we began discussing the launch of a crime, suspense and mystery channel - to create something special for viewers who love this popular and enduring genre, to utilize our extensive library of great crime dramas and to offer a channel that cable operators would embrace, said Gaspin. We are thrilled to be achieving these goals and in a position where Sleuth can be seen in more than twenty-two million homes."

Actually, nowhere in that press release does it say when it will debut on D*. Only that a carriage agreement is in place.
D* moves slow. Relax.

Some are exclusive and CAN'T be added to DirecTV, yet. Some are just plain junk.

DirecTV is in business to try and provide the best service to the mass of 15+M subs at a particular carriage cost point and not to add every fricking channel just because it can be found somewhere in space and 5K or so people may ask about it. You can't just add services freely as some of you guys seem to think. You have no idea how businesses are run to make a profit and please stock holders for the long run.

I'm not sure where you live, but spring will begin in a few days. Then we have 3 months before it is over. Then feel free to bash.

NO, NONE EXCLUSIVE, AS THEY COULD NOT BE ADDED TO DIRECTV, THEY ARE ONLY ON 1 PROVIDER NOW, BUT NOTHING LEGALLY WOULD PREVENT THEM BEING ADDED, LEARN THAT

I WOULD GLADLY PAY 20 BUCKS OR MORE A MONTH IF THOSE CHANNELS WOULD BE ADDED .......... THE SD CHANNELS

THE 0ON DEMAND CHANNELS IS A NO BRAINER TO ADD BECAUSE THEY ARE PRE PROFIT FROM THE GET GO

NOW ON TO CHARPERS WRONG ASSESMENT ON THE CHANNELS BEING JUNK

AND WITH BUD & FTA ARE NOT SHOWING MOST THESE CHANNELS ANYMORE... AND YEAR BY YEAR REMOVING THEM

IF YOU WOULD LEARN TO READ, ON DEMAND WERE LISTED FIRST, BECAUSE DIRECTV CURRENTLY HAS NONE, AND AFTER THAT WE HAVE A THING CALLED ALPHABETICAL ORDER, DUH, LEARN TO READ

VOOM WILL BE ON DIRECT, BANK ON IT

YOU CALL THE COMPLETE MOVIE SUITES OF HBO, SHOWTIME, STARZ AND CINEMAX CHANNELS NICHE - LIKE NOBDODY WANTS THEM :D YOU ARE FUNNY

YOU CALL THE COMPLETE SUITES OF MTV, NICKELODEN, AND SO ON NICHE CHANNELS THAT NOBODY WATCHES ?? GEE IF NOBODY WATCHED, THEY WOULD NOT BE CHANNELS

WELL IF YOU HAVE NOT NOTICED,

WHEN CABLE/SAT/WIRELESS ETC STARTED THEY ADDED CHANNELS BEYOND THE BROADCAST CHANNESLS.... BECAUSE


DROM ROLL PLEASE ...................................................

THEY ARE ALL IN SOME WAY NICHE CHANNELS, BECAUSE THEY BASE THEIR PROGRAMMING ON A NARROW PROGRAMMING CULTURE

DUH

REGARDLESS, THEY ARE CHANNELS THAT NEED TO BE ADDED
