Dumb question, but where (package-wise) will this be located? Will you need to subscribe to the superstations to get it?

It will be at AT-200 and up (for sure) plus HD Essentials (I would imagine).

It's strange that Dish still has this channel in the Superstation area. (239). They moved the TBS channel number last year for this very same reason. They should move it to one of the 120's or 150's open channel numbers. That would be more appropriate.
