Great news! It seems the situation with Ant1's hold at Dish has loosened up a bit if Alpha Sat will be allowed to be carried a la carte. As for other channels moving, I think Mega is an obvious target for Dish. I wonder if Dish would still hold a grudge against them for leaving, even though they were technically distributed by a different company back then.

Interestingly enough, I just posted a thread on Satelliteguys.us earlier today asking about the Greek package on DirecTV. Also while searching around, I noticed Alpha announced their move to Dish Network on their official facebook page.

Well thats good news but how is Alpha making any money if they are leaving the package at the same price?

This truly shows how overpriced the package was to begin with, and how much money they were making. Keep in mind that the package was recently just lowered from $34.99 to $24.99 too. Either way, I predict we will see an increase sooner rather than later. Maybe keep the price attractive at first to pull subs in, then increase later.

Hopefully Alpha appears tomorrow as the website indicates. Hopefully Mega and Alter come back to dish.

I see no mention of Alpha Sat a la carte on the Dishnet website- guess they changed their minds?!

Time to update my lists...

Yes they still show Efialths stnv Kouzina. In Greece it airs Thursdays at 10 pm local Greek time. You would have to check your listings when Alpha becomes official on zapit to it.

Did anyone notice that Dish Network updated the layout on their site, and they do not include Alpha Sat in any of the packages? It is not even in the "Compare packages" chart. I assume this is just an oversight on their part?

Alpha Sat is still not listed on the Dish Network website, either in the regular section or the section for commercial businesses. At first I thought perhaps it was a glitch with the new layout of the international channels page on the site but it has been a few weeks now and still no sign of it- is it still there?!

Dish updated their site to reflect that Alpha Sat is exclusive to them.

Tell me about it! It seems they still forgot to add it to the elite package line up below though. This is progress I guess! :P
