I have Dish's Essential HD pack and came across the Universal channel last night while channel surfing. Are they having one of their "free view" weekends or did they drop Universal down from Ultimate to Essential?
I noticed this as well. I'm guessing that it has something to do with the Olympics. They were showing many hours of US Olympic trials earlier this week (in HD). I'd assume that this means we will get all HD channels that have Olympic coverage in August, regardless of the package we have.
