Ch 225 -- 5 Continents Television (Discover China)/Untamed Sports TV
Posted 07 January 2009 - 03:38 PM
Channel 225 is also showing programming from Untamed Sports. I haven't seen that yet and am guessing that it is advertising in disguise like the Pursuit channel (I don't have very high hopes for it). Anyway, I thought I'd let you guys know about 5CTV/Discover China since the actual content on that channel could be easily missed since it is paid programming/shopping most of the time.

The guide shows that there are large blocks of "Untamed Sports". According to the schedule on Untamed Sports' website, 5 Continents Television is part of its daily schedule. Look for Directv to update the guide, but if they don't then you may want to set up manual recordings from 1pm until 5pm Eastern even though no specific programming is listed in Directv's guide.
Thanks for the heads up! Besides "Discover China," there are 2 other documentary series/shows; Mekong, and Chong Qin. It looks tomorrow is the only for a while they are they going to show this stuff [again]. Got my DVR set. Thanks again tftc22.

No, I didn't see the broadcast. I hadn't heard about it anywhere and didn't realize Directv was broadcasting 5CTV until I stumbled upon it in the guide on the 7th.
TFT, I just came across this article, linked below. In the last paragraph they said on New Year's Day 09, that they showed a China celebration broadcast on D* [Ch. 325; and E*/Dish ntwk], was just wondering if you saw it and how it was? Thanks.
