Get Sprout or Disney Jr channel on Dish T.v

We Recently Changed our cable company to Dish TV and they do offer some great channels for babies like baby first TV and Nick Jr witch is great for infants and Preschool age kids. But they don't offer sprout and Disney s new channel Disney Jr TV which is a nice channel for not so lil guys. I always see on Sprout.com and Disney Jr TV.com a thing that tells you to request that they start to carry these channels i also called and submitted to them. I was told that they don't see anything that they will ever have any of these channels so i was hoping that if we can have enough people to sign this that they may consider one of these channels if not both of them. I love Nick Jr but they are always changing there schedule up so its never the same show at the same time. and Disney is getting rid of some of the shows that they would play during the day for our Jrs. Sprout plays 10 to 15 min shows to keep our lil ones attn. Now before you judge me and assume my kid is in front of the tv all day he is not but when im cleaning the house it helps and he watches a lil bit in the morning and before bed and i have not been able to find anything he likes. I also think it would be great that we would have a couple of other options for our kids other then Nick Jr, channel 12 pbs kids witch stops playing after 5pm and channel that is for infants.

  • Cassie H. I just don't understand why Dish wouldn't have Sprout. It's educational television programming just for preschoolers that is 24 hours. I am very disappointed with Dish and how many channels are missing from their lineup (and I have the premium package). With Sprout, you can reward your child(ren) in a special way when they help around the house, do well in school or if it's their birthday and that's by putting them on tv. I can only hope our voices are heard and Sprout comes to Dish's lineup.

  • Anonymous I'm thinking of changing from Directv to DISH, but the lack of Sprout is making me think twice. We have two young children and we absolutely love some of the programs available on Sprout.

    2 months ago Comments: It is ridiculous that Dish Network does not have PBS Sprout. It is by far the best children's channel. The shows actually teach children to be more rounded in their education and inspire creativity. So much better than that brain-dead programming Nick and Nick Jr offer. I swear I lose IQ points every time shows like Sponge Bob come on. What sort of children are we expected to be raising with those values? I like Dish better than Direct Tv, but if there's no Sprout by the time my contract runs out, I am gone. I bet you are losing more customers than you think.
