Thanks but ive known that for years as i get it OTA and its labeled QUBO in the guide but on Directv it called IONw i guess they forgot to change the channel info after they changed it from Ionw to QUBO.

Typically they show programming from both Qubo and ION Life in lieu of the infomercials that are regularly broadcast on the main ION feed. Maybe this is what you were seeing?

Qubo has many owners - with Ion as its managing partner.

Ion west on DirecTV substitutes material from Qubo and Ion Life in place of the infomercials. The Ion east feed carries the infomericals (it is thus an exact duplicate of my local OTA Ion channel), but Ion west does not. DirecTV never changes the channel label. It would have to change it multiple times per day if it did.

It is not the Qubo channel 24-7.

In most areas for the OTA ION station, Ion has Qubo and some other movie channel as the subchannels. IONW seems to be Qubo during the day and the movie channel at night.

My Tivo guide calls this channel IONDT.

In either event, it's nice because my kids have lately taken to Qubo. And D* can't be bothered carrying ANY of the ION channels.

Yeah.... I don't see that happening for a long time.

I don't understand. DirecTV carries ION on 305 and ION West.

Qubo is a subchannel in almost every market that carries Ion over the air.
Not really a new channel for most.

I just checked and 347 no longer runs qubo during the day on directv.  I was told by directv when I contacted them it was stopping in January 2013.  I have to get it over the air on my antenna.  Where I live is further out and the picture is not always the best but it works.

Did you mean ch. 306?

 

IONw was moved there not too long ago logically to be next to IONe on ch. 305

They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

Qubo has been a "thing" for years. It used to be on NBC on Saturday mornings, if I recall. It's been on XX-2 for ION stations for years and years. An AM21 will get you Qubo all the time if you have a local ION affiliate. Qubo has never been its own channel on Directv, aside from the AM21 integration.


DIRECTV: Genie (HR34) w/AM21 and 1 client.
AT&T: U-Verse Internet, Motorola modem and Samsung Galaxy S3 cell.
