I have never quite figured out the rules that govern competition between cable and DBS, but as I recall, if the channel is available on cable systems with different owners, then it also has to be made available to DBS. If that is true, then it looks like the Paul Allen channel should be on DBS. While Mark Cuban has been talking about it longer, Paul Allen has issued a press release for what it's worth.
