Thanks, I know. If I'm not mistaken Esquire is one of the NBC/Universal channels that shares programming with the others like USA, etc. It was just nice having it as a selection to put on in the background.
Boiler plate from Laila S: "Periodically, DISH evaluates its content in order to provide the best value to our customers. After careful review, as of Saturday 10/01/16, Esquire Network has been removed from DISH's channel lineup."
