The attachments to this post cover all U.S. DIRECTV Channels and Transponders, CONUS (Continental U.S. or National beams) and LIL (Local Into Local or Spot beams). Periodically, OTA (Over The Air) channel information is provided.

Directv-Latin America provides satellite coverage for the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and South America; Directv-LA data is separate and not included here.

A single Excel document provides all the CONUS and LIL data for DIRECTV Satellites at the 72.5W, 95W, 99W, 101W, 103W, 110W and 119W positions.

Three supplemental documents are also provided:

  • A Network-Market-DMA Networklist cross-reference sheet. This information is particularly useful in understanding the LIL data.

  • A Network Decoder map showing the satellites and transponders graphically as they appear on your receiver's signal strength display.

  • A Channel Distribution Chart showing the number of CONUS and LIL channels provided by each satellite.
All documents are fully unprotected so you may copy and use the data as you wish.

Maybe I'm missing something but I don't see the spotbeam info for the stations in the Charleston-Huntington WV DMA (WSAZ, WCHS, etc.)

What is DirecTV 14? Is that a new Sat?

The only future DirecTV satellites mentioned in approved or pending FCC documents have been labeled RB-1, RB-2 ...

During the D12 launch, there was a reference to DirecTV-14, which may just be another name for the first RB-x satellite.

There are no build contracts signed for any new satellite that we're aware of (publicly announced). Was also confirmed during the recent analyst call last week,
DirecTV: Genie, H25, CCK, GenioGo, SWiM-16 & SWiM-8, DECA to Gigabit Switch with FiOS (75/35)
FiOS: Roamio Pro's (2), Roamio Plus, Mini's (4) with Ultimate HD (My Roamio Thoughts)

Clueless, you are definitely NOT clueless -

You are right! I am missing all the LIL (spot beam) information for each of the LIL Network Numbers between 541 and 576.

I have sent a PM to doctor j asking him to try to bring up another bucket out of the well. Looks like his last bucket had leaks...

Doctor J provided a complete new stack of all the TPN data, so here's the full dataset updated as of 2/24/10.

If anyone finds missing LIL Network data, please let us know.

The 'Channel Count' document has been updated in line with the corrected TPN Map information.

I've got a question...

I'm in the Portland DMA which is network 661 on the network list. In the transponder map there are Boise, ID channels mixed in with the Portland channels. Both show the network as 661. Boise, ID channels are on network 535 and show up there in the transponder maps. They are the exact same channels as are mixed in with the Portland channels.

So can anyone explain what is happening here? Is this related to an issue with the iPhone/iPod touch scheduler app that lists all those Boise channels with my regular ones for my zip code?

Thanks for any responses. :) I'm a little confused by this...

I don't know for certain,but it is related to "significantly viewed" channels.
There are several (12 or 13) DMA markets that are like this. I also think it relates to spot beams and larger or fringe areas such that one set seen by some counties and others seen by adjacent counties.

Eastern Oregon and Idaho are like that if you look at DMA maps.

OK, I think I understand. So if you are in Malhuer County, which borders Idaho, and your locals are technically out of Boise, you may still be able to watch your home state locals out of Portland and that's why Boise's are mixed in with network 661 (the Portland DMA)?

Am I undertanding this correctly?

Thanks for all the work you guys do compiling this information. :) There's a lot of stuff in there!

Try some zips in your area and report results.
I don't know the region to try any of the "overlap" markets.

Go Beavs:

I don't fully understand the geography,however if you search Portland DMA No HD Locals, You get Boise ID ,7 channels only in Grant County. Not Bakir or Malheur which are more "border" counties.

At any rate ,yes there are Porland DMA counties that receive Boise ID channels.
One or the other or both I don't know.

No zip codes in my area report any results. I live in SW Washington and wouldn't expect to get any channels but Portland. Not sure why Boise's and Portland's show up on my iPhone app channel guide??

OK thanks, it looks like it's just Grant county in E. Oregon. Not sure why Malheur and Baker counties don't qualify as they are closer??? I guess someone there must have been able to receive Boise locals with a big roof top OTA antenna at one time...

Thanks for your time on this. I appreciate it. :righton:

So, what is up with Spaceway-1? Why has it been more or less off-lined?

Has this not put a greater demand on SW-2, D-10 and D-11 for spot beams, and thereby perhaps had some impact on the CONUS HD channel capacity off of D-10 and D-11? (lack of new HD channels for so long)

Are the Philadelphia channels (SD) on 101 spot-beamed or conus?
