Beween the FX on 137 that I can get, and the one in the 800's that I cannot get? they both look the same, just different numbers?

Anyone know this? I find it odd and a waste..LOL

The 800's are for Dish Latino customers. There are some English chanenls in a DIsh Latino pack so they put those channels next to the SPanish channels in the 800's

Its just a mapping thing so there is no extra bandwidth used (as an example, channel 101, 480 & 490 are all the same but are in essence 1 channel)

The channel(s) in the 800's are spanish audio channels that are part of the spanish programing packages.

Not all of them.

As Iceberg said, "There are some English chanenls in a DIsh Latino pack so they put those channels next to the SPanish channels in the 800's"

The FX in channel 137 and FX in channel 878 are exactly the same thing just mapped to different channel numbers.
