    Years ago I kept track of such changes (offline) in a spreadsheet but there are so many little adjustments each year. This year had the renames that created FS1, FS2, FXX plus Al Jazeera America. Channel shifting moving channels 396-399 from their old locations. Various renames and channel number adjustments.

    As noted, everything that is changed on the satellite feeds (names, channel location and other technical information) is automatically reported in the monthly Uplink Activity threads. If the change is big enough that someone cares they will start an individual thread about the channel(s) in question.

    Thanks James, I now see your thread way on top with 3 others , above these general discussion threads. Now it is easier. to find uplink activity.
    Now that Esquire Network has left 115 , I hope that the channel that used to be there will come back? Right now I can't remember if it was Fit TV or another one.

    Take care.

    The channel that was there was Style and it no longer exists. The channel owner changed it into Esquire.

    225 is just a normal infomercial channel (SALE in the guide). Some of the Gaither infomercials are airing on 225, but there is more other content than Gaithers on that channel.

    • The American Heroes Channel, formerly known as the Military Channel, or Discovery Wings Channel, is an American cable and satellite television network which broadcasts television programming related to the military, warfare and military history.

      I am going to miss the military channel (195) very much.

    It's just renaming, or "rebranding", I bet the content will not change much.

    Why are seeing (Inspiration 259) is also on channel 85 ? The 70's-90's are usually reserved for info-mercials and Christmas or holiday music. I felt that FETV was at wrong place at 82 ,when it was launched. Something weird is going on.

    It's likely a pay to play deal where the station pays Dish to be carried, instead of the usual Dish paying the station, so they get placement at the bottom of the lineup.

    This may have been on for awhile, but the CSN Fox Root other sports channels at the 400's can also be seen at the 5400's.

    Guide listing says Altitude is moving to 413 from 410.
    CSN California now on 438.
    Pac-12 Network now at 409.
    Big 10 Network now at 410.

    Hope there is room for the SEC Network this fall?

    There is room for SEC and Longhorn ... part of the reason why there is shifting.
    As for the 5400s, those are only seen on HD receivers that are not Hopper/Joeys. And the Hopper/Joeys do not see most of the 400 numbered channels ... they appear as 405-xx, 406-xx and 412-xx in the guide.

    FXX moved from 390 (formerly Fox Soccer Channel) to 240 between WGN and Spike TV.

    Fusion has been uplinked (not available) to channel 244.

    LHN Longhorn (407) and ESPN BuzzerBeater / GoalLine (403) also uplinked - NOT available (Longhorn was announced for May 28th).

    (404 and 439 remain available for SEC on August 14th.)
