    DIRECTV is moving the BTN alternates to channels 610-1 through 610-4. They were in the guide at those channel numbers temporarily, then disappeared. I haven't looked again to see if they've come back or not, but that will be their locations for this upcoming season.

    Similarly, the ESPN alternates will be at 209-1 and 209-2 instead of 210 and 211. MLB Network alternate is already at 213-1 instead of 214 (which is now MAVTV). Other alt feeds will probably adopt a similar convention over time.

    Will these "alternate channels" only be active when there is programming/games on them? If so, makes it kind of hard to have an updated favorites list (or in my case, a "football" guide).

    No, they haven't changed that. I hate to go through all the "to be announced" channels. And if you hide them you run the risk to miss any live games

    No. The new numbers are sub channels of 610. They will only be use for BTN.

    They were there the other day. And are gone now. We can only assume they will be back.

    Look at 209-1 and 209-2 for ESPN. Same thing as you will see for 610.

    only 610-1 is back

    ESPN alt's only have HD feeds now in the past there was some stuff that was only on the SD alt feed.

    Will NHL alt be added?

    RSN's? Some are sub feeds others are flex sub feed / alt slots

    I love this change. It was an incovenience having to check each week to see which channels had Big 10 games on because it seemed to vary week by week. This way they will all be attached to 610.

    DirecTV should change the 622 FSPa to 621-1 FSPa. Also change the three FCS channels to 608-1 FCS, 608-2 FCS, and 608-3 FCS.

    no idea what will happen with FCS down the road but it is mostly SD only stuff (part time) and a very few HD games?

    Still not there. I'd like to set a recording for the IU game, that is to be on one of the alternate channels.
