You don't need to act like a jerk. I missed Scott's announcement, and he doesn't have it on the front page so it is easy to miss it.

He took time to relay info on something that is important to many of us. Maybe cut him a little slack and leave the snide comments out of it.

That csr must be a member here.

I can't remember anything much that was not here first before Dish could tell us what was up.

I do agree. No reason to be a jerk to someone putting up good info.

bobvick deleted his post flaming the original poster for posting supposedly redundant information.

bobvick, my apologies if I hit YOU too hard. I get cranky when Good Samaritans get slammed for their efforts... Thanks for deleting the post.

I wonder if any of these will be available on HD Absolute. Probably not, but I still love the package.

The CSR (Anna) said in the chat that they're adding 8 HD channels tomorrow, but then lists 9 channels.

I agree... why not give us ESPNU HD?!??!? I'd give up all those others for just this one channel in a heart beat!!

Because ESPN wants a truckload of money for it.

ESPN charges more for their channels than any other company, period.

Note that DirecTV also does not carry it...

so those of us using 61.5 for hd cause we cannot see 129 is practically getting thrown under the bus?
It's not that permanent! Scott has reported in one of these threads that Dish plans on moving the new HD over to 61.5 as soon as they can get E6 over there.

If ESPN were smart, they would make ESPN-U PPV; given the strong interest, they'd make a fortune even at $10 a game.

What is this "sportsman" channel? I'm familiar with Outdoor Channel, but not Sportsman.

I don't see it listed in any of the packages.

Anybody?
