MISSED Equestfest on RFD.tv! =/

I'm so sad--I set up my DVR to tape this yesterday and either they're not doing it anymore, or DISH.tv had the wrong schedule. Does anybody know--is it online?

I can't help you with your show but I got an email just the other day from a horse person who's show I have watched saying RFD TV acquired/partnered (something like that) with a new station and because of this, the schedules on RFD TV are completely changing.

I don't get rftv but get alot of their shows on a channel called family net. They have been monkeying around with their shows as well. Think it some kinda networking thing. If it doesn't get straightened out, may want to check if you get familynet. They show alot of horse shows.

Thanks for jogging my memory.
That's the network that was named in the email and had to do with some of the schedule changes.

This is the first time — and maybe the last time — I'm going to ever recommend looking up Facebook for more details but they posted this on their Facebook page:

Quote:
Due to a massive communication breakdown and other technical difficulties, RFD-TV was unable to broadcast Equestfest on December 29th. Footage was produced, and each and every equine group will receive extra attention during RFD-TV and FamilyNet''s broadcast of the Rose Parade, Presented by Honda, on New Year's morning.

Please tune in beginning at 10am (eastern), 9am (central), 8am (mountain) and 7am (pacific) for our one hour special, The Making of the RFD-TV float which will also have a segment devoted to Equestfest. And then, stay tuned for our "live" carriage of the 125th Rose Parade, and watch for the RFD-TV float, You Make My Dreams Come True, as the Grand Finalé to the 2-hour parade hosted by Pam Minick & Orion Samuelson.

RFD-TV has been a proud sponsor of Equestfest for the past 7 years. We apologize for any inconvenience, and look forward to returning to our "live" carriage of Equestfest next year.

So, satellite problems? Maybe. But it wasn't just you.

And second thing: I found out what the programming changes are: Superior Livestock Auction is moving to Rural TV (which nobody actually has, I think) and some of the Market Day Report and Rural Evening News stuff that's currently on Rural TV is moving to RFD TV. (Cribbed all of this from RFDTV.com, by the way.)

So it'll actually mean the equine block's daytime run won't be getting shoved aside by six hours of cows for sale anymore.

All those shows I get on familynet. Love the Rural Evening News. I will admit to watching cattle auctions, but can definitely see where they could get boring and folks turn channel.
