Holistic Television

We regret to inform you that effective December 27, 2006 the Holistic Television (Channel 9417) is no longer available. If a customer requests replacement programming, Lime (Channel 264) can be suggested. Lime is available in either AT180 or a la carte for $1.99/month.
 
I dont know but telling a customer who got that channel for free (as it was a PI channel) that they need to subscribe to the top 180 package or pay $2 a month for a simular channel is not going to make some folks happy at all.
 
I might have watched them occasionally if they had had program data in the guide, rather than just 4-hour blocks labeled "Holistic Television Network".

I'd love to hear a customer complain that they're losing a FREE channel ! Dish could of course give them a credit for the remainder of their time with Dish for the amount that the channel cost them....
 
I know a lot of people who would leave Dish is RFD TV went away and thats another free channel.

One channel I am surprised is still around is Good Samaraten Network, which still has not had a show on it since I have had Dish Network.
 
Well, your options are REAL limited with RFD TV. That channel, and most of the public-interest ones, are very, very narrow focused. How many non-farm households watch RFD ?? There was no great exodus with the loss of distants.... Those that left E* for D* because of the price increase a week or two ago, well, they just found out "the grass isn't always greener...".

I don't think near as many people quit because of a change or changes as people think. People b*tch about it and say they will, but most never do.
 
I'm guessing that my FAVs list skips 9400 up to the channel "under" TNT-HD. I remember watching a university professor lecture on C or C++ programming one day.... WHO's idea was it to tape that and broadcast it ??

RFD-TV fills the void when "The Nashville Network" got trashed by CBS.. I am surprised RFD-TV has not flipped to commercial status yet
 
"...lecture on C or C++ programming one day..."

Sorry I missed it. No, I'm not joking.

I'm surprised that E* is even offering LIME a la carte, since VERY few ATxx channels ARE a la carte.
The only other ones I can think of are Bloomberg, Outdoor ch & Golf (or is IT even available a la carte anymore?)

Which also begs the question - who in their right mind would actually PAY (& pay $2 at THAT) for LIME??? :eek: :eek: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

What! If they took away RFD-TV then there would be no more Big Joes Polka Show. Now that would be a travesty!!!!!!! :D ;)
