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). OTA (Over The Air) data is not provided in this specific data capture.

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.

It would be interesting to see the LiL channel counts for D10 and SW1, weekly over the next 6 weeks.

... not to mention D12. ;)

It will be interesting to see how they use each satellite.

D12 has been peculiar but we're working on it.

Looks like it's going VERY smoothly - without new APG PID and new Net#. ;)

Pay attention folks. Your SD channel names are being changed. They seem to be working their way across the country, LIL Network by LIL Network.


Example:
I used to have two channels in San Diego:
SD15 which was San Diego KPBS, Channel 15 in SD
KPBS which was San Diego KPBS, Channel 15 in HD

I Now have two channels named KPBS.

It is difficult to tell the two channels (SD and HD) apart now. If I hit "Info" whilst on a channel, the name in the Info Name Display begins with A3 if the Channel is in HD. But very few people will pick up on that. And, Yes, each and every HD and SD Channel pair in my LIL Network now have the same names. I'm not sure WHAT they Directv is trying to do??

Smaller markets have had it this way for years...

... or are you talking about something in the transponder data instead of what the regular customer sees?!

Alan,
Both the TPN data stream and what the customer's receiver displays are both changing. At this moment in time, San Diego LIL Network has been visited by the Channel Name fairy; the San Francisco LIL Network has not yet been visited.

Example: at this time, the San Francisco DMA has:
KQED which is Channel 9, PBS in HD
SF9 which is Channel 9, PBS in SD

Very shortly, they will have:
KQED which is Channel 9, PBS in HD
KQED which is CHannel 9, PBS in SD

OK, so I had it right then... :)

Only the larger markets had the market abbreviations like you mentioned... and smaller markets had the actual call letters for their SD-LIL.

If memory serves, only the markets on 101 had the market abbreciations instead of the call letters.

If memory serves again, my memory is telling me that it had something to do with DirecTV's earliest receivers not being able to support something. Because markets available via the satellite at 119 required newer receivers anyway, there was no need to do this, so DirecTV correctly displayed the station's call letters.

Apparently, DirecTV must know (or feel) that there aren't any receivers old enough in the big markets to cause a problem, so they are updating the older markets now. :)
