Both AXS TV and HDNet are ITC on both muxes. High bit rate muxes too!

Good find dishcrank. HDNET was itc a couple of years ago and I enjoyed it thoroughly. The picture quality of the films is absolutely stunning. Let's hope it lasts through the holidays so I can show it off to some of my guests who are stuck with cable. :watchingtv

HDNet is encrypted again. :(

AXS TV (3760) and Hallmark (3820) remain ITC. :)

It will be back during the Christmas holidays. Someone at the uplink turns off the encryption during holidays for some reason (probably so they don't get called in for overtime if an affiliate has a problem with encryption). It was the same routine last year. Quite a few programmers do the same (watch for Fox channels to be itc over the holidays). :bigsmile

I wonder why they lease so much transponder space for 3 versions of AXS TV? Anyway, these guys sure splurge on bandwidth and it shows. The unscrambled AXS TV is always a pleasure to view on a big screen tv.
