    I hope they really mean it when they say they are launching local univision and telefuturas. I have my local univision but not Telefutura and cant watch it even with the spanish package.

    If you are in the San Diego DMA we receive the Telefutura feed from Los Angeles (46) so as such the Telefutura West can be seen down here. Not bad at all. Univision comes in fine as well.

    I would hope they would not use mpeg-2. But I am curious if they are using 110w or 119w for these channels in mpeg-4.

    Univision HD is at 99 on D11. We aren't sure yet about TeleFutura, but apparently it's either at 110 or 119.

    I just read the same info over at another forum. Someone with a SL5 and Latino package please go out and cover over your 110 and 119 LNBs to find out which one.... :rolleyes:

    This is almost as riveting as when we got BET and Planet Green all in the same year.

    Actually, I'm being a tad sarcastic, and looking forward to big time rollouts from D12.

    Jackie Guerrido in HD?
    Doesn't seem like a waste of bandwidth to me.

    edit: I don't think Primer Impacto is in HD, yet. It probably should be.
