It's gone, for now.

That's how it works when you remove a channel for another ... :)

And TEST channels need special authorization.

I still don't get why they need to test for a week. The signal either works or it doesn't. What am I missing?

I always figured things were a bit more complex at their level. Making sure it's properly visible on all the eligible plans, etc. 99.99% or more of DirecTV customers have no idea this is even happening. A short testing period of a week really makes no real difference.

Its not as simple as that... There could be issues with the signal as far a lip synch, there could be routing issues, or even wiring issues. A week is a good time to let the signal cook through the system and ensure that there are no issues. Also just because the channel is uplinked, and planned to launch doesn't mean that its up there right now. They could have a slate up to hold the place of the channel on the bird while the appropriate wiring is done through out the facility's distribution system.

Yes, meaning don't crap all over this thread talking about how excited you are for the channel, or the contents of the channel.

Sixto, can your space magic reveal a change in the way DirecTV is broadcasting channel ch106, ESPN 3D? I'm sensing something, but I don't want to get too excited.
