Just heard from a friend who has a FTA receiver. Message on the screen says something like "Get ready to spend some time indoors, OLN is coming back to Dishnetwork, NHL coverage is back April 22nd"

Just called Dish Network...they know absolutely nothing of OLN coming back.

Way to get my hopes up for nothing.

Its not supposed to be turned on until tomorrow. Front line CSR's are often the last to be informed of such changes. I wouldn't put much stock in a single rep having no information about this based on all of my calls to Dish Network dating back to 1999 yielding similar results.

EchoStar returning OLN in time for NHL playoffs

NEW YORK -- More than six months after EchoStar Communications dropped Comcast-owned cable channel OLN from the Dish Network, the two companies are close to reaching a carriage agreement just in time for the Stanley Cup playoffs. OLN and Comcast declined comment Friday but an agreement was expected to be announced soon. Further details weren't available and it wasn't clear what tier OLN would be on. OLN was yanked off Dish on Oct. 20 after OLN replaced NHL games with other programming on Dish and Cablevision (HR, 10/21/05). The Comcast-owned channel was upset because OLN was available on Cablevision and Dish tiers that were available to less than 40% of subscribers. Dish's tier was the America's Top 180 package. OLN has since settled with Cablevision. (Paul J. Gough and Andrew Wallenstein)

Well Dish might have OLN back in their channel lineup, but it will be called "Versus"

OLN is back in the guide right now. Looks like its available to subscribers with the America's Top 180 base package and higher.

I live in South Jersey, 20 minutes outside of Philly. I was at the game at the CAA last night. My wife watched the game at home on I believe it was on OLN but I could be wrong. I think Philly/Buffalo was on Comcast Sportsnet.
