Channel 73 on the Dish Network is now labeled "OBAMA". It is being dubbed "The Obama Channel" since the Obama campaign has apparently paid for the channel. It seems like an odd buy, but someone must have done the calculations and figured that the amount of money they were spending was worth it to reach the projected audience. Right now the channel is playing Obama's two minute economic ad on a loop.
"Three readers from different parts of the country email that Channel 073-00 on the Dish Network is now labeled OBAMA. ("What is up with Sen. Obama having his own channel?" asks a St. Louis reader.) The channel plays his two-minute ad laying out his economic plan on a loop, over and over."
