AT60 has 125 WE free preview
But NO 126 Encore Love free preview (number 126 isn't even in my guide)
which would make sense as we didn't have LMN in AT60 nor Encore Love when LMN disappeared.

Lifetime is about as "basic" a cable channel as is out there ... Dish had to make a deal sooner or later. Glad that (from outside appearances at least) Dish didn't get bent over a barrel getting these channels back on the air.

And did Dish really lose *that* many subs? That's like saying I would drop Dish for cable if Spike TV went off the air for a few days. :rolleyes:

If LMN is on AT180 and replaced with Oxygen on AT120, then Dish won, hands down.

Also, no Lifetime Real Women (yet)....Dish definitely won :)

Who won? Who knows or cares? Probably Lifetime got its increse and LMN was moved to 180 hoping that some will upgrade to make up for the increase. I doubt we will ever know for sure.

That's the key issue - and the source of the bulk of the 76% increase.

Not familiar with the pre-spat lineup (was LMN offered at all - if so, what tier?) but that would determine how big a spanking Lifetime took.

As far as how this will impact other negotiations, don't expect many similarities except with the independent (or fairly independent) channels out there.

LMN was offered before the split, AT120 I think.

WE and Oxygen will be in AT120, Lifetime will go to channel 108. The channel hasn't been taken, they are just mirroring WE there.
I have the AT 120 I had LIFE and LMN know I only have LIFE.

That makes sense. They split whatever cost there is now into 120/180. This is somewhat of a win for Dish because it says they can force, at least the smaller networks, into breaking the "must carry on all tiers" crap they try to pull. One would also expect that the price increase is no longer 72% or whatever.

Dish definately won this battle.

LMN is now in AT180 instead of AT120.

Lifetime Real Women stayed off Dishnetwork.

Bottom line....Dishnetwork won this battle.
