So I have the German Mega Pack just to get DW-TV, the DW TV website says I can receive it ala-carte, but Dish Network keeps telling me that is not possible.

Hi, I do not know why the website would list this channel as being available ala carte. I have verified that this channel is on available as a part of the Germany Mega Pack.

That is straight from the Deustche Welle website as well, which makes it all the more confusing to me.

It sounds as if the DW website should correct itself. It, obviously, is not available on Dish Network as an a-la-carte channel...

If DISH Network says they don't offer the channel ala carte, don't take someone else's word otherwise. Deutsche Welle has missed the wave in this instance.

The Pentagon Channel announced that they would be carried in HD by DIRECTV this year. Don't count on that happening either.

The site is just outdated. Dish used to offer DW-TV al'carte (and some other German channels) but they bundled them/changed after ProSieben and Kino channels came to dish. ...The price used to be less too!
