    Telefutura gives me a Channel Not Purchased on my SWiM5, but Univision comes in.

    Any clues what the additional TEST channels on 119 will be used for?

    The WMAH (PBS) , WXXV (FOX) are another new Directv DMA, Biloxi, MS.

    They are scheduled to launch in May along with Idaho Falls/Pocatello, ID.

    Interesting, ?D-12 LIL marker?? This is a KA HIGH marker.

    Hi Sixto, your latest Post #1 update shows TeleFutura-HD- Ch. 408 broadcasting at 720p HD..... However, TeleFutura OTA is at 1080i HD, just like Univision-HD.... Is DTV downconverting the 1080i signal to 720p ?.... If so, do they do this with other 1080i networks ? (ie. bring them down to 720p)... Thanks !

    Thanks for the quick reply (and correction) !...

    Happy to see that DTV was not reducing the TF 1080i signal down to 720p.... We have a secondary PBS station down here (WXEL-42) which sends out all its PBS 1080i programming in 720p and it does not look good.....

    :nono:

    No need for it before now, almost every game was available from the RSNs to NHL CI subs

    From what I read/heard from Versus, the Alternate feed is only for when the telecast on the Primary channel was blacked out due to your local RSN having the broadcast rights.

    The Alternate was just a friendly gesture, you really didn't miss any games.

    I agree. The only guide data I have seen on 604 said "Alternate Programming" which means non-game Versus stuff for markets that are blacked out. Also, no mention on the Versus home page about simultaneous games. (And all the JIP games are RSN rebroadcasts, anyway.)

    Hi Sixto, just received this month's DTV bill and in the Programming Newsletter insert they're listing the first 20 new HD channels to be added in May/June with all their corresponding HD channel locations ("The New DirecTV Channel Line-Up" on pg. 1)....

    No surprises in the line-up announcements except for one. They are listing "TeleFutura" (doesn't say east or west) on Channel 74, not the current channel 408 where HD was recently added.... Since this Newsletter does not cover any networks from the Spanish-language packages (I get a separate Newsletter for "Mas" channels) my assumption is that non-"Mas" subscribers will now also be getting TeleFutura-HD for the first time but on this different channel location...

    Since the channel selected is 74 I immediately thought of the old MPEG 2 HD channels previously located in that neighborhood.... However, it doesn't make sense to tie channel numbers to MPEG2 or 4.....If they want to open up TF to all DTV subscribers they can just leave it at 408 and open up the Guide...

    Unless, for some strange reason, they wish to offer TF in MPEG 2 HD at 74 and in MPEG 4 HD on 408.... Any thoughts on what's going on here ?

    Sounds like marketing to me ... put the channel low next to local channels where it will be seen. They may even do it on a market by market basis ... only in markets that don't have a local TeleFutura OTA feed or only in markets that do to save carrying all of the affiliates. Whatever their agreement with TeleFutura is.

    The only way to know for sure is to wait for DirecTV to announce the plan in detail or put it into place where it can be observed. I wouldn't be surprised if the channel were added nationwide to all subscribers as DISH already has it in their "Choice" level English packages. People shouldn't have to subscribe to a full Spanish package to get it.

    Might that be a new local channel. Seems like they've recently added a number of new local HD channels.
