Per a special message on channel 693-1, Prime Ticket is moving to channel 693 on February 15. I wonder if this means they're making room for the new Padres FSN channel.

Aren't the Lakers moving to their own channel soon, too? DTV might need lots of room for all these single team channels.

I think we keep FSN West, but might lose Prime Ticket. Last I read, the Padres were the only thing going on the San Diego market channel, if it's even full time to start. If it is full time, it's supposed to be a mirror of Prime save for Padre Games...

List is getting short….

Not to mention, I have never once seen 693 used for anything. It was always an alternate channel, just as 695 was. I hoping that they are doing this and getting rid of the alternate channels since they have never been used from the guide, and then they will have a nice place to put the lakers channels and the San Diego channel.

DTV also needs room CSN Philly and TCN Philly / CSN Philly + to be next to each other.

Also pack 12 needs the main channels + the alt's / Regional channels
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

The network will broadcast other Southern California teams, such as the Los Angeles Clippers and the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, which are normally shown on Fox Sports Prime Ticket. Fox Sports Prime Ticket

So will it be a sub feed? a alt feed?

Will directv make it like some of the other FSN feeds where it will be not full time?

Until the new Padres ownership is officially approved by MLB, I don't think we'll hear much news. But a resolution, one way or the other, must take place soon. After all, we are in February and still no TV deal yet for the Padres!

Well, If FS retain the rights to the Dodgers then there would only be alternate feeds during baseball season. Or there may be an alternate channel just so they could accommodate all the SD college sports they wish to broadcast.

Subscribed to DirecTV for NFL Sunday Ticket, remained a subscriber for international football.

What network are you talking about? Those teams are on fsn west and pt, or local channels only. The alternate channels have never been used for any of the teams in the la dma. I fact I am not sure those channels have ever actually been turned on and haven't smply been placeholders in case a situation came up where they where needed, but it never has.

The new lakers channels will have the lakers and the galaxy, but that's all that's signed up with them so far. I suspect they may eventually land the dodgers as well, but that's about it. They won't do hockey I don't think, to many conflicts with the lakers.

Why? They currently have all seven major sports inbetween the two channels now and have never used the alternate channels, what makes you think they'd need them now that they are definitely loosing two of their teams as it is, and maybe a third at some point?

Don't forget that some games are shown on ota channels.

The Sports range of channels needs to be expanded from just 600-699 to something like 600-750 with all the new networks coming out soon.

Ridiculous waste of bandwidth if this is a 24/7 channel. Hopefully DirecTV makes it a temp channel.

He was talking about the Time Warner Lakers channels (yes there's going to be 2 of them, English and Spanish) that are launching next season.

I'm thinking those will go to 657 and 658 to be next to the Pittsburgh RSN, IF we ever get them.

It looks like they're making room for the two new Laker RSNs, 694 and 695. The new FSN-SD could go to 691. CSN-NW could go anywhere between 688 to 690.

I still vote for game only channels though, no need for so many 24/7 RSN's.

Game only channels doesn't free up space for more hd channels, so I don't see the point in working about that.

As someone else said, we are talking about the new twc channels, which at the moment have contracts for the lakers and la galaxy, and are obviously going to be bidding like crazy for the dodgers or angels to fill out their year.

I'm thinking they are making room for FSN San Diego on 694. FSN San Diego now has its own website: http://www.foxsportssandiego.com/ It just states "coming soon," so no content yet, it is under construction!

This may be unpopular to say, but I think DirecTV should do a restructuring of the channel lineup. I'm not stating this loosely. This is costly. It is inconvenient for many. But a new template may be in order. And it last happened in July 1999, one year after USSB ended and its channels (especially from Viacom) went directly to DirecTV.

Now that we can access four-digit channel numbers (which I'd use for categories such as pay per view; foreign languages; and, as already the case, On Demand), one-hundred blocks can be set up. With sports, DirecTV could use a one-hundred block for regional sports; another one-hundred block for national sports; and two one-hundred blocks for seasonal sports.

Example Guide:

002–069 Locals (070–099 Distant Networks)
100–499 Non-premiums (arranged in categories but, within this, would be HD Extra Pack)
500–599 Regional sports (Fox Sports, Comcast SportsNet, Root Sports, et al.)
600–699 National sports (ESPN suites, The Golf Channel, Speed, The Tennis Channel, NBC Sports Network, CBS Sports Network, NFL Network, NBA TV, NHL Network, MLB Network, et al.)
700–899 Seasonal-subscription sports (NFL Sunday Ticket, NBA League Pass, NHL Center Ice, MLB Extra Innings, et al.)
900–999 Premium movies (HBO, Cinemax, Starz, Showtime, et al.)

I agree that they need to redo the channels, I hate that the HD Extra pack is not located next to all the regular channels in the 200-350 range.

Well it is technically a premium package since you have to pay 5 bucks extra, so it makes more sense to have them next to the premium movie channels.

The Astros will still be on FSN this season as will the Rockets. So that won't be necessary until next year.
