When are they going to actually give us a channel that a majority of people want? They do these niche channels that nobody cares about. Give us some RSNHD, or mainstream television.

yep, the FCC revoked RFD's PI status recently.

BTW, how do you hook up a third dish to a DISH 500? I have a spare single-LNB DBS dish I could use but I doubt DISH would come out and provide free installation to integrate that dish into my system (with 625 receiver) in order to give me the 110/119 and 148 slots.

If you have a DPP Twin then you just put the 3rd dish into the input slot on the Twin. If you do not have a DPP Twin then you need a switch.

The FCC told them they had to drop the commercial content, such as the Cattle Auction.

DiSH Network moved it from 119w to 110w, but it still has a PI channel number.

This would not justify adding a PI channel to 61.5w and 148w as the requirements are slot specific.

The channel that left was 9417 Holistic Television Network.

Has this channel been activated yet? It was not in my EPG as of last night.
Yes, it was live last night on 9402 IIRC. The program guide was about 1 hr ahead of the actual program, so you couldn't see what was on very far into the future.
