As far as Music Choice goes, DirecTV claims they can pass that
information on, but aren't doing so yet. They claim that they
will do so by the end of the year, however.
According to Dish Network, Muzak does not provide playlists
for the Dish CD channels, so they have no capability to
pass playlist information on to the subscriber. Supposedly,
it would cost Dish Network much more for the playlists, and that's
a cost which would have to be passed along to the consumer, and Dish
Network does not want to do that at this point.
