Water Channel

So I am looking at Dish Network as a service provider.

Is the water channel worth it?

What are you looking for? Wakeboarding, barefoot, slalom?

My parents have it on their DN. I love the skiing, wakeboarding, barefooting, foiling stuff they got on their. I watched it last saturday night when I was visiting them. 3 or 4 hours of watersports. but they have lots of other stuff on it too. I havent watched anything else on it. I only watch the skiin if its on. They run the Secret Spot on there once in a while too. that was cool. Do you have to pay extra for it, or is it in a package?

not only is the water channel worth it, they also have CSTV which carries college sports year round, NFL network which has NFL talks year round, and a lot of other cool channels. to me it was a no brainer.

Here is a link to request programs on the water channel. Maybe if we let them know that there is interest in it, they will include some in their programming. I already sent them an email request, I suggest we all do the same. Maybe they will listen and we can watch some slalom!

I have not seen the Water Channel, but we did try DishNetwork for a few days. I was very disapointed with the menu system, DVR and inability to search and easily set to record a whole series. We switched right back to cable thanks to the 3-day CA cooling off period that allows one to get out of such a contract.

I'm hoping the channel will be available from Verizon. Once they get licensed to run TV through my FIOS in Huntington Beach (I'm already hooked up for data).
