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.

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. Edited by Grk101

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?!

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

I wonder if the Alter gang (Hatzinikolaou, Autias, Triantafilopoulos) will all reunite at Alpha now that Kontominas is back in charge?! It will be interesting to see what changes he makes with the station once he takes over?! Will he go the Antenna route and fill it with cheap crap or will he try and challenge Mega for the top spot by bringing in big name talent and good quality shows?!

Rumors say that Kontominas is planning to stick to cost cutting and a low budget for Alpha. Any changes in programing will occur next season. As for Hatzinikolaou, he is rumored to be signing with Ant1 to present the news 4 times a week, and Aftias is rumored to be signing with Skai.
