The channels between 71 and 98 are generally all SD paid infomercial channels (not national "networks") which DTV does not acknowledge or list in any of the official Channel Line-Up Guides they issue monthly (in Access Magazine or the Programming Newsletter or in their website).... Some were added as fillers after the MPEG 2 HD channels were removed last month...

So my thought (and hope) is that they can easily remove the infomercial channel on 74 (or move it) in order to accommodate the TF-HD addition they've announced for Ch. 74.... We'll see soon enough....

I do agree that the channel number selected is puzzling (unless it's related to the MPEG 2 issue)....


We already have Telefutura HD. Its on channel 408 and you need DirecTV Más to watch it. Some stupid summer intern put in 74 though and nobody caught the typo. It will never be on channel 74. There will never be MPEG-2 HD channels ever again on DirecTV, they're 100% MPEG-4 now.

The channel number has nothing to do with the delivery method.

The DTV Newsletter does not cover, acknowledge or list any Mas channels.... I get a separate monthly Newsletter for Mas, where TF has always been listed at 408.... This is the first time that TF is listed here (for all non-Mas subscribers) and included as part of DTV's "national" Channel Lineup at 74...

It's hard to understand how the editor(s) would miss such a major error (this is on the cover/front page), given that now all subscribers are being told of this new national HD availability and will be calling DTV if they don't get it...

If you're right (which is very conceivable), the stupid summer intern made 2 errors: 1) he/she grabbed a network belonging to Mas (non-primary satellite) and now put it on the D10/D11/D12 menu and 2) changed its channel location by a factor of over 300..

If not, we definitely want to see it in MPEG 4 HD, not MPEG 2 ... plus the east HD feed to complement the west on 408...

BigRedFan, any chance you are in an area with a local TFT channel and the channel number is a typo?

I found these locals in Florida

The DTV Newsletter is a "national" newsletter reporting ONLY about national networks on DTV and sent out to all DTV subscribers receiving their DTV bill in the mail ... So, whether one lives in a TFT local market or not would not impact the new national HD channel line-up announced in the insert....

If it's a typo, as surmised by the Coca-Cola Kid, then the typo would refer to the national Channel 408 vs. the 74 announced, and not to a local TFT affiliate channel number..... We'll find out soon enough.....

There's no local stations on channel 74. The FCC reassigned the frequencies for former broadcast (OTA) channels 70-99 to cell phones back in the 80's.

:backtotop


DTV's announcement of TeleFutura-HD coming to Channel 74 in their national Programming Newsletter has nothing to do with LiL.... TF-HD is a national network, not a local channel.... The only post I can see here which could tie to LiL is Beerstalker's and he was simply wondering whether the national Channel 74 announcement could've been related to a local channel number typo... But he was responding to the national network announcement, not to any new Lil announcements....

So, if this thread is "about national HD channels" and since TF-HD is a national HD channel, especially one that has been announced by DTV to be added next month to Sixto's "HD Channels Listings", then I would argue that we are both in the correct thread.... Sixto's transponder uplink watch always lets us know when new HD channels are about to go live and we're simply now on the watch for this new one announced, just like many other HD's before this one.... Again, nothing to do with LiL's....

All of today's changes are a direct map of the D10 14 national transponders. If you compare to the D10 map, it's exactly the same, except the Cinema are TEST, and SpikeTV along with transponders 9 and 10 are not mapped yet.

Nothing yet "new" in the data, which would be the two extra D12 transponders.

Cool....thx.

The avs site doesnt count the 2 spanish channels as falling into the nationals group of tbs, tnt etc.

They say they fall into the cbs, abc, nbc, fox group.

Just wondering why they get counted as nationals here in the page 1 list ?

Because they're available nationally on the same channel everywhere, as opposed to via local stations.

Technically, Univision and Telefutura are broadcast networks (ala CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, CW, etc.), but DirecTV apparently has a NATIONAL deal with them (ala ION) that allows them to offer these channels nationwide... so for the purpose of DirecTV subscribers, Univision (402) and Telefutura (408) are national channels.

However, in the case of the Official AVS National HD Channel Lineups list, it's kind of hard to count these channels as a national channel.... not to mention that it's very possible that any non-DirecTV subscriber would most likely be unaware of their "national" status on DirecTV.

wrong, Telefutura is an OTA network, just like NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX.

List of Telefutura affiliates


You are correct that TF is an OTA network... That doesn't mean it's not also a "national" network.... It's a "national OTA network" in the same way that the Big 4 are national OTA networks (available in all 50 states over-the-air) but TF also differs in that it behaves as a "national basic cable network", ie. by providing silent ad cue tones every hour just like TBS, TNT, USA, etc. to its non-broadcast distributors such as DTV and filling in all commercial and promo breaks... plus hourly ID's identifying itself as a national cable service...

And it's also a "national" network in the sense that it provides national carriers, such as DTV, Dish, Fios, U-Verse, with a 24-hour continuous feed free of any local content or ever going to black (unlike the Big 4); this allows them to fill-in all the "white areas" (to reach 210 DMA's) where they do not have any local OTA affiliates.

DTV's presumed TF carriage on Ch. 74 is of the national TF feed, not the LiL feeds, which we also get additionally (on DTV) in TF local affiliate markets--- that was all I was trying to clear up...

By the way, thanks for the TF Affiliates List !.... provides good background to this issue....

The national feed of Telefutura is already in HD on 408, right next to all the other Spanish networks. It is not and will not be on 74, it was obviously a typo. Why do you find that so hard to accept?

Technically, Univision and Telefutura are broadcast networks (ala CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, CW, etc.), but DirecTV apparently has a NATIONAL deal with them (ala ION) that allows them to offer these channels nationwide... so for the purpose of DirecTV subscribers, Univision (402) and Telefutura (408) are national channels.

However, in the case of the Official AVS National HD Channel Lineups list, it's kind of hard to count these channels as a national channel.... not to mention that it's very possible that any non-DirecTV subscriber would most likely be unaware of their "national" status on DirecTV.

DTV is not the only distributor carrying the national feeds of Univision and TeleFutura..... They're also available on DISH, Fios, U-Verse, and hundreds of cable systems serving DMA's where there are no Univision or TeleFutura broadcast affiliates.....It's how they cover all 210 DMA's....

The same thing occurs with Telemundo, Azteca America and Estrella TV, the other national Spanish-language OTA networks....As well as the non-Spanish TBN, ION, HSN, and Jewelry TV---- also "hybrid" national OTA networks...

Unlike Sixto's DTV Channel Listings here, the AVS Channel Lineup is not being consistent in the criteria it is using to exclude the Spanish-language national networks from its list.....It excludes them on the basis that they are "broadcast" networks, yet it still lists the non-Spanish "broadcast" networks of TBN, HSN, and Jewelry TV---I get these 3 OTA here as well as nationally on satellite...

I don't believe they yet understand that you can be both--- a broadcast OTA network and a national cable network at the same time.... Their list should be objective in reflecting carriage of the national cable versions of these hybrid services--- such as Univision, TF, and the others listed here.. It is a disservice to anyone looking at their List to apply these arbitrary exclusions...

It just makes no sense to exclude any national channel carried by DTV (and others) simply on the basis of an outdated network definition criteria dated to the 1950's....

The national feed of Telefutura is already in HD on 408, right next to all the other Spanish networks. It is not and will not be on 74, it was obviously a typo. Why do you find that so hard to accept?


TeleFutura has 3 national HD feeds (East, West, and Mountain); DTV only carries the West feed on Ch. 408....Channel 74 can be a feed other than the one DTV is carrying on Ch. 408, just like they do with ION-East (305) and ION-West (347) which are not placed next to each other ...

I don't find anything hard to accept.... I'm just giving DTV the benefit of the doubt that their Newsletter may just be correct as announced.... Has DTV announced that this TF announcement is a typo, as you say ?

All of today's changes are a direct map of the D10 14 national transponders. If you compare to the D10 map, it's exactly the same, except the Cinema are TEST, and SpikeTV along with transponders 9 and 10 are not mapped yet.

Nothing yet "new" in the data, which would be the two extra D12 transponders.

Today, they added the mapping for D10 transponders 9 and 10, which was missing yesterday (per above).

Sixto, those a few chunks of data are just "eng" language descriptors, like "PQRengQO"R!/LlAjH2Bk" , nothing significant.

Correct. That data sometimes contains clues to future channels.

I track it (for changes), others can ignore it. :)
