I will miss the channel, especially in the summer when not a whole lot is on tv that interest me. I was hoping the feed would stay up for some reason but no luck. Thanks for the report JP, save me having to reaim to find out for myself.
Out of curiosity, I just checked on the DVB and DCII Setanta channels, just to make sure that they were still gone. Checked the DVB channel. Same black screen. Checked the DCII channel..... there was video there. I was just observing thumbprints with TSREADER, so I switched on VLC to see what it was I was seeing, but before I got the channel up, it had switched to a black screen that had the text "NO SIGNAL" printed on the black screen. I thought it was gone, but then, while starting to type this message, some Spanish language cooking show popped in, it had Utilisima.com in the upper right. I think they were just on a commercial break. I watched for a while as the cooking show came to an end, and some FOX screen popped up for a second along with a couple other screens, then a 2nd show started. Anyway, I have no idea of what this channel is, but it looks like they have replaced the channel that Setanta was on now with new non-sports content. I'm not sure if it's real programming or infomercials. If infomercials, it's possible that they might shift to other content during other time periods.
