Needs an update to add the channels added today to DIRECTV

 

275 QVC HD

426 BeIN HD

404 Galavision HD

560 Playboy HD

 

Also showing in my guide in HD is 408 Univision MAS West, which I can see with the Premier package and 426 BeIN HD which is not in my package. I do have a 5LNB so Sixto didn't see BeIN HD light up this AM.

UniMas West HD was already in HD a long time ago, you just noticed because it was added in the Premier package.

Updated. If the package Univision MAS is in can be determined let me know and I'll put it in Saturday when I change the names for Fox Sports 1/2.

 

A member with Choice Xtra package stated they are able to receive the channel in this thread.

James,

Thanks so much for creating this list. It's really helpful to see how it compares. Is there a way to get it in spreadsheet form? And do you know of a forum that does channel comparisons for comcast/time warner?

Thanks again for any help.

AVSForum has a chart that has channels on cable and channels no one carries. It was the inspiration for this chart ... with this chart listing (for the most part) only channels that either DISH or DirecTV carries. Keeping it to two providers keeps it simple. (It is enough of a challenge to keep up with two providers let alone a half dozen, some with regional differences in channel offerings.)

G4 has ceased on DISH (and is apparently going away nationally).
ESPN 3D also ceased nationally and is no longer carried by DirecTV.

DISH added Sony Entertainment TV to their growing list of international HD (7 channels plus an international movie PPV).

WeatherNation, is that the channel that Dish briefly added when it was having that short dispute with the Weather Channel?

Yes. It was called "The Weather Cast" at the time ... but it is the same production company.

Well good for DirecTv customers then. They're getting a channel that actually will show them what the weather is nationwide. With the "Weather Channel" you're just as likely to get a show of some sort. One of the reasons I stopped relying on tv for weather and just go to the internet.

Style became Esquire and moved on Dish.

 

Sundance is listed with Showtime but it isn't part of Showtime package on Dish anymore.  Seems to apply to Direct, too.

Thanks ... I had moved Style alphabetically to become Esquire but apparently the name change didn't stick (sometimes I click "undo" and it undoes something I didn't expect).

Sundance is still on the Showtime channel listing on DirecTV's website:

DirecTV offers Sundance in Ultimate base package and higher, and also (albeit unadvertised) they authorize it for you with any premium channel subscription (HBO, MAX, Starz/Encore, Showtime/TMC). It's only advertised however as being included in Ultimate and higher or Showtime Unlimited package.
