    OLN returns to dishnetwork

    FWIW, if you are a dishnetwork subscriber, OLN is back on. Channel 151. Now you can get their cycling coverage again.

    i also found out that Canal Evasion, which is in the Montreal/Quebec area, will be airing the Giro, 2 hours a day! Evasion is like OLN but in french.

    My thoughts exactly. I think they were in for a rude awakening come July with all the people cancelling their service.

    Damn! I just switched. And the clueless jerks didn't know it was coming back?

    I dropped down to the minimum 60 channel lineup when they dropped OLN. Now I gotta get that d@mn 180 channels just to get OLN! I'm gonna check DirectTV first.

    If you're a home-theater geek and into Hi-Def, don't switch to Direct. PQ blows compared to Dish. Just an FYI.

    FWIW: OLN on dishnetwork is digital but not in hi def. I don't know how it compares to directtv. Dish has only about a dozen worthwhile hidef channels. Some of their advertised hidef channels (TNTHD for example) show lots of stuff on the channel that is not hidef. At least on my dish the difference between digital and tru hidef is amazing. Some of the standard def stuff (depsite having a great tv which was professionally adjusted) is actually worse on a hidef display than on a CRT.

    Thanks for the info. I have HiDef and all channels look good on mine with Dish. Dish is now offering new HD receivers and HD packages... I need to find out more details before changing my 60 channels w/HD vs. the new HD package. I know that the new HD packages have alot more HD channels than what I currently have, but requires the new HD receiver. Hopefully one of the HD packages includes OLN.

    I have the original dish HD receiver 811. Now they are selling another model the ViP 211. If you don't currently have an HD receiver, I don't think you are seeing anything in true HD from dishnewtork. You can check their website at http://www.dishnetwork.com/content/p...es/index.shtml
    to see what they offer - you won't find OLN there though.

    Is OLN available anywhere in HD?
    I have Time Warner cable with HD, but OLN is not HD.

    To the best of my knowledge OLN does not braodcast or supply an HD signal to anyone. They make no mention of it under their "get OLN" tab on their website.
