Has anybody got any inside scoop on this? This is really the only main Hd channel I want missing from Dish's lineup.

[sarcasm ON] ...on the brand new 118.7 satellite location. For a $99 dollar fee or additional 18 month commitment you will be able to receive it... [/sarcasm OFF]

Sarcasm or not, I wouldn't bet a dime against that happening.

Yeah the 99 bux for the dish and additional 59 bux for the installer, as well as a $5 per month additional programming access fee, since it is leased space on AMC-16. If you can't come up with this, you will still have to fulfill your existing 18 month commitment, even though you can't receive the programming anymore. It don't matter, because the 622 still has a decent SD picture, and also the fact that the mpeg2 SD programming won't overstress the 622 too much, so it'll run more stable without HD mpeg4 feed.:eek:

I was really going to have a problem if the HD at 118 stuff was going to become reality. I just got my 622 this week, including Dish 1000. I had E* about 4 years ago, and switched because I was really tired of the new hardware requirements, add-ons (6000 receiver), etc. When I switched back, it was because I thought, in reading this and other sites, that E* might just have their ducks in a row now and the hardware will be consistent for a while.
