    Is beIN Sports going to be a premium package channel?

    In the Sports Package I believe.

    Not sure if you would classify that as "Premium", but I guess it is. :)

    It could indicate that it may be in test for a little while longer.

    I checked my local channel 30, and its guide also is NOT in HD. But that is a west coast affiliate anyways, so it wouldn't have the same guide anyhow.

    Could also be that the system simply hasn't been updated yet for that channel.

    On my iPhone, beIN Sports is listed as channel 620, but the programming is a 24-hour placeholder, no actual programming yet.... may not have been received by DirecTV yet.

    All new HD channels except IONE HD are listed in my iPad and Android guides. Also, beIN and Goltv both show up as ch.620 and 426. Which one will move and to where?

    GOLTV should be on 456 and 627 as of tomorrow.
    BeIN Sport will be on 620.

    beIN Sports will be on 426 and 620.

    I don't know if the beIN Sports on 426 is beIN Sports 2 or just an alternate audio version of 620, but...

    I looked at BBCA's programming lineup for the first time in probably a year and can't help but wonder why I wanted in HD so bad. Even my nerd friends think that Dr Who is too nerdy for them. haha

    Lots of Chef Ramsay repeats as well.

    Hopefully it gets better when fall rolls around.

    I wonder if this quarterly tradition thread can even survive with the DIY'ers and H2'ers having to carry the daily/weekly whining ball.

    Well, given how villianous D* SD is, perhaps I'll add TV Land to my whining repertoire as well for the wife's sake. :D

    Y'know, if Sixto sees this. . . between the "6 per" developments, the number of Top 10 from the 2011 poll that are now added, and new HD launches in the interim (TV Land HD, for instance, didn't launch until late 2011). . . perhaps it might finally, reasonably, be time for a new DBSTalk poll on new HD priorities. . .

    While I may lack in companionship for CW HD-DNS and TV Land compared to BBCA, I make up for in vocal (err... what's the word for typing) strength! ;)

    I'll give you 2 words: TOP GEAR! Tomorrow night at 800pm. And I don't care it is not a new episode, it still is Top Gear in HD! And the 330am(ET) Bolivia Top Gear episode is pretty cool. Heck, I can watch the same Top Gear episode in HD countless times!

    I may give that show a try now. I've been avoiding it, as I *try* to avoid any SD, as I don't want to get hooked on anything SD.

    Now we can move on to the "I want HLN HD" rants, and of course the "I want DIY HD rants". :D
