    CHANGE COUNT 64


    They would not want to imply that these are actually HD Channels, so they changed the EPG names on the following channels:

    TNTHD to TNT

    ESPHD to ESPN

    ES2HD to ESPN2

    NFLHD to NFL

    HBOHD to HBO

    SHOHD to SHO-E

    NTGHD to NTGEO

    STZHD to STARZ

    HGHD to HGTV



    7124 KPAX2 became available with a local mapdown of 7

    FPCHN 574 and 575 returned to Engineering.

    Yeaaaaahhhhhh! Birmingham HD's warming up!

    Looks like they are really sticking to their near-term new markets as announced at the Team Summit meeting. Hopefully, dinner will be ready soon.

    With the newer receivers already clearly marking HD channels removing the extra tag makes sense.

    Thanks for the update ... more placeholders for HD sports ... let's turn on the ones already there as well! (CSNCHI)

    Actually necessary, as there is no room for "HBO-SG-HD" or "HBO-2E-HD" in 5 characters...

    I guess it would be LOGICALLY to assume Setanta is coming soon to DISH for sure then! :)

    Would be good news for many...

    Thanks for the report, John!

    Logical but premature. Many channels have come and gone away. :)

    Still hoping for the best ... I like new channels - makes bragging easier. :D

    BTW: 137 QVC is active.

    I'm wondering whether QVC paid extra to be right in the middle of the dramatic channels, rather than in the shopping channels.

    Back some weeks ago, I heard the following from a Dish contact:

    " Dish and Setanta are in the final stages of negotiations, and expect to have positive news very soon. "

    Uplinking the channel seems to be positive. :)

    Given the usual $15 per month price for Setanta, and only one SD channel bandwidth needed, I can't imagine what would derail it becoming available in the next few weeks.

    Remember that each HD channel takes a lot more bandwidth, and until new satellites come online, E* has to weight each HD channel addition carefully (because competitive pressures will mean they won't be getting any further income per HD subscriber for adding any particular HD channel).

    I expect both to be weighed appropriately.

    SDs are expected to be on all receivers, not just ViP receivers ... that means QPSK MPEG2 that takes up 1/12th of a transponder (or a little more) and is most likely going to be uplinked to premium space on 119° or 110°.

    New HD channels are only expected to be on ViP receivers ... that's 8PSK MPEG4 with up 6 channels per transponder ... 1/6th of a transponder. They can also be uplinked to 61.5° and 129° (and space exists).

    New part time sports channels take up even less space ... the only issue is the evening when more than six channels are active with HD at the same time. (Which is why a 24x7 network like CSNCHI is harder to put up than all the part time channels).

    Thanks John! Some good news and bad news for sports fans.

    What was on channel "19053 TSN" that was removed?

    What better way to push the swap to mpeg4 compression than bringing SD channels on in mpeg4 also. New additions =mpeg4 and that drives the adoption of mpeg4 hardware.

    While SD is expected, it doesn't necessarily mean it makes sense at this time. It would be more advantageous to plunge in like they did with HD. You want it? You get a VIP receiver.

    This is good news on Setanta. D* has had it now for over two years and they claim they reached their two-year subscriber goal in very first year. E* certainly has been missing out not mention all of the soccer fans that switched.

    Still no word on Comcast Sports HD in Chicago.
    And how about Golf Channel HD now that they have all the Thursday/Friday PGA coverage? Couldn't they throw that onto one of the 'special events' HD channels until a full time transponder becomes available on the new satellites?
