Will the East and West feeds be available on channels that have both like History? When NPS was around they had both and HITS used to have them but took them away!

That depends on the programmer (some don't allow that anymore) and available bandwidth on our EasyVu system. We don't want to over compress now do we.

NFL
ESPN
Fox Sports
Comcast Sports
Food Network
HDNet Movies
History Channel
History International
Civilization Channel
Military Channel
A&E
SyFy
TCM
TV Land

That would do it for me. Everything else I need is ITC.

By the way, would you be offering InDemand Sports and PPV? I wouldn't mind ordering the odd event every now and then...

We would like to offer PPV on EasyVu at some point.  We want to launch the big name sport networks, the ESPN's, Fox Sports 1 & 2 etc when EasyVu rolls. Sports will be a big part of Rainier. Then the basic and high tier cable channels.

Future Rainier Satellite customer here HBO and Cinemax would be awesome.

We appreciate your interest in Rainier Satellite. We have spoken with HBO/Max about their channels already, and we can add them to our EasyVu Platform. Rainier wants to bring back to C band what has been missed for so many years all in glorious HD. The big name channels will mostly be on our EasyVu Platform. The smaller independent channels will be on the Full Arc Platform. This way we can provide full bandwidth to channels like ESPN etc and not compromise the quality by bit-starving due to insufficient bandwidth like the small dish and cable systems do.

Many EasyVu channels will be fed to us by fibre, These are extremely high quality, even better then distribution C band masters out there now. We can set the quality level we want our Super Headend to transmit. Our masters in reality can be better than what is called a master now.

Will you be able to supply Big10 Network.

We spoke with Big Ten and they will sell their channels to us. Since they're in Digicipher that has to be turned around. That would need to go on the EZVu platform. Currently we are working on expanding the full arc platform as far as possible. Once that is complete, we will get back to the business at hand for EZ.

Try getting Turner Communications on board. I would love to see Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and TNT. Less HBO/Showtime and more classics is what I prefer...even American Movie Classics (AMC) would be nice.

We have agreements with some of the programmers you mention, plus many more. We have 16 contracts with 16 different providers currently beyond what we now offer. We are working on technical details to implement these contracts and have been in talks with more providers lately including big name sports channels (things look good). Once technical is worked out and tested, we will be able to launch quite a bit more content. I can't give further details now due to NDA's. When its all in place we will release the information needed, launch the new networks, and carry at our store any additional hardware needed for them due to different conditional access used. We have been going non stop, and will continue to work hard daily at it until its done.

Any chance you will be carrying Bloomberg TV Canada? It is launching next month and I see you already carry Bloomberg USA.

Sorry for the late reply. We are very busy at Rainier, my time is limited.

We have no plans at this time for that channel but that can change once we launch international distribution. We want to serve our friends up north as well as down south. We are currently working on launch of American cable channels with CAS+. With CAS+ in place it will open channels from all platforms. Rainier is at the cutting edge with this technology. This technology will benefit the industry in many ways, including security.
