I was channel surfing last night and was surprised to see some IFC programming on channel 131. Channel 131 has long been divided between Independent Film Channel and Romance Classics (or Women's Entertainment), with IFC available only from 6PM Th - 6PM Su, EST. I looked at the onscreen program guide, and IFC is now available 24/7 on channel 131, and WE has moved to channel 128. I requested IFC be available 24/7 a few months ago, but was told that it was a "business decision" to only offer it on weekends. I guess they've made a new business decision. I'm not sure when this happened, but I believe it's extremely recent. Along with Sundance Channel, IFC is about the only place that focuses on independent films. Not to mention OAR presentation (which is also true of Sundance and TCM). I guess Dish has received enough requests for IFC to convince them that it's worth offering it 24/7. Since I previously requested it, I think it's time to send them a thank you note. Just thought I'd let everybody here know, since independent films and OAR presentation are both important to many people here. Now, if only IFC would drop their 24/7 channel bug! Steve K.
