Awhile back, I scaled back my Sky Angel package from the full FAVE programming to the faith programming only. That change, along with Sky Angel’s new bundle pricing, allowed me to get all the faith programming (with the wonderful 48-hour playback feature on the TV channels) in two rooms, plus the WebTV for just $5 (bundle pricing). I have been paying $32.99/mo.–a real bargain when you compare the offering to most cable packages.
For me, there are two FAVE channels I have missed–the PIXL movie channel and Universal Sports. PIXL is mostly Hallmark movies (commercial-free!). I have been monitoring their programming recently and notice that there are quite a few movies that say “2012″–this tells me they are beginning to make more new movies, so there will be a better offering. Also, I have noticed over time that new Hallmark movies premiere on PIXL weeks before they are scheduled for showing on the regular Hallmark Channel, and, of course, I can watch those premieres without commercials on PIXL.
Then as a long-time figure-skating fan, I have been disappointed in recent years that very few figure-skating competitions are carried on regular broadcast channels. The Universal Sports channel broadcasts the competitions I can no longer see elsewhere (unless I pay to see them online). Being able to watch the full figure-skating season means that when the winter Olympics come around again, I will know who the skaters are and have an idea of what to expect. That makes all the difference for a fan of the sport!
So I decided to add back the FAVE programming this morning for an additional $20/mo.–that pricing will allow me to get these two channels once again–in two rooms. As I type this blog post, I am enjoying a brand-new movie on PIXL.
