    Does anyone know why Spike is moving to 241? It seems like a strange spot for it, among shopping, public info, and church channels.

    It is odd, because Spike on DirecTV is 241 also.

    Spike has been out of place since the channel was renamed/reformatted.
    The content of 241 Spike and 242 TruTV are similar ... "reality shows".

    243 nuvo is an English language Spanish interest channel, with it's fair share of "reality". Perhaps that is what ties these channels together (placed right above 240 Pursuit Channel).

    The old channel numbers, 167 nuvo, 168 SPIKE and 204 TruTV could be used for other channels. Perhaps something that fits in with their neighbors (music or children's channels on 167-168 or a news channel on 204).
