If that's true, not optimal. They should move 219 to 220 and then make NBC Sports 219. You have a date?

Theres nothing on 219 or 220 now. They could move it to 219 and make 220 the alternate channel.

Weird, when I tuned to it, I get TV One, which doesn't match the guide info.

Not necessarily, we sometimes know about new channels before they post it, and that's bigger news than a channel moving. However, those come from the best sources or known data. In this case, I'm still waiting for H2 HD.

I really hope this is true. It really is out of place right now on 603. Maybe they will move NBCSN to 220 and CBSSN to 219. I would be happy with that.

This is good to hear. This now opens the perfect slot for HRTV, yes I said HRTV, I still have some hope left that DirecTV might be willing to finally give us horeseracing fans what we've been asking for many years. I really hope that the people at DirecTV who make these type of decisions to add channels consider HRTV. We have multiple sports channels of college and pro, but just one for horseracing. I know there are others here who also want this channel, so please let me and most importantly DirecTV know you want HRTV.

Pursuit moves to channel 604 on Directv starting 7/30/12

"In Pursuit’s ongoing effort to reach the most viewers possible, we have seized an opportunity to move from our current channel position of 608 down to 604. The move will place Pursuit Channel next to NBC Sports, channel 603, who will be carrying a great deal of Olympic content, but in front of Sportsman 605, Outdoor Channel 606 and Speed Channel 607. This move will take place on 7/30/2012. "

So according to Pursuit, they are taking 604 and NBC Sport is still going to be at 603, but maybe they don't know that. What this all means is anyone's guess.....

Why was the NBC Sport Alt slot turned off there was some limited use last year? Even with the new TV deal not really needing anymore.

also why Fox College Sports with a HD slot put in 608 when it's not HD and BIG ten Alt fits better. Maybe universal sports will move to 603 with NBCSN going to the 200's. NBC may want it near the ESPN and other Main sports channels.

The current layout for sports:

206 to 220: select National Sports
601 to 626: select National Sports

628 to 699: Regional Sports
700 to 799: Seasonal-Subscription Sports


So, there are 41 slots for national sports and 72 for regional sports. (Total: 113.)

How many new launches for regional sports? There will be Time Warner Cable SportsNet and Time Warner Cable Deportes. Also there will be Comcast SportsNet Houston. There will be one for New Orleans, correct? (Though many bet against, we'd love for DirecTV to get Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia and Comcast SportsNet Northwest.) Any subchannels with these programmers (Plus and Alternative)?

Though many subscribers may not feel up to it, and that there is a cost consideration, I don't think it would a bad idea to do a channel realignment. Last one was 1999. That was before HD. That was the year satellite was legally able to carry local channels.

Due to expansion of programming, it's been adding up. Rapidly. Especially if Pac-12 Network, with seven screens, gets added to national sports; and if, down the line, some or all of these come in: WWE Network (multiscreens with that, right?) and more ESPNs (Goal Line/Buzzer Beater and there is Longhorn Network). Also: World Fishing Network, Horse Racing TV, and MavTV.

There is potential for two one-hundred blocks' worth of channel slots for layout with sports that are regional and ones that are national.

Suggestion:

001 to 099 Locals (…069) and Distant Networks (070…)
100 to 499 Basics
500 to 599 Regional Sports
600 to 699 National Sports
700 to 899 Seasonal-Subscription Sports
900 to 999 Premium Movies

Revise 08.09.2012: Four-digit channel ranges: Religion (1000s); Foreign Language (2000s); audio music (3000s); games (4000s); private/business programming (5000s); On Demand (6000s–8000s; +6,000); Pay Per View (9000s).

Longhorn Network is RSN like and can be grouped there.
700-799 should work for Seasonal-Subscription stuff.
