It's been a while since we updated this. Here are the cable coverage estimates as of October 2010.  Note, these estimates take into account Fox's cable channels (FX, FNC, National Geographic, etc) being pulled off of Dish Network, but my guess is by the time the November estimates are done those channels will be back on Dish Network.
