I am still getting used to the new lineup, with BPL games on multiple channels...were the midweek games of yesterday and today all on somewhere? I believe I only saw Liverpool-Everton on 220.

 

Thanks!

For some reason, people think my idea of having all the sports channels together is a bad one. I bet most customers have no idea there is free soccer and rugby in the 479 to 495 range. The scattering of sports channels throughout the system is just illogical! Who cares if it's Spanish or English, put all the sports channels together!!!

Use the search function for niche sports.

Or group the channels together because the search function is quite slow...

It's kind of hard to group them together in the 700s considering the EPL, UEFA and Rugby seasons overlap the other sports used in the 700s. EPL is from August - May, Rugby is year round with various tournaments in both hemispheres, UEFA is usually Fall-May.

700-718 NFL from August - January
700-705 various Golf and Tennis tournaments during the year
719-749 MLB Extra Innings from April - October
720-727 ESPN Full Court from November - March
750-768 NBA League Pass from October - April
769-784 NHL Center Ice from October - April
785-787 NCAA PPV from August - December on Saturdays
788-794 ESPN Game Plan from August - December
795-799 used to be NASCAR Hot Pass which was discontinued last year.

MLS Direct Kick which operates from March-December used to be in the 700s range too, but it got moved to the 400s after they started providing both home and away feeds for MLB, NBA and NHL requiring more channel slots. Since UEFA (9 channels), Rugby (2 channels), and EPL (Currlently 5 channels with the potential to expand to 8) overlap the other sports as well they put them in the 400s near MLS where they target a similar audience since there's no room in the 700s to give them dedicated channel slots for the entire season.

For soccer I use the sports guide to find EPL matches. They get spread out at times and that makes it easier.

This!

 

If you can't find the channel with all the TV  listings info out there from myriad of  sources that list such, just not much more to say.

How hard is to remember that soccer channels are in 470s 490s. Dont you have a GUIDE where you can scroll.

If you want all sports channel be together, why dont u create a favorite list with sports only

Yeah I made my own list for MLS which has ESPN1/2, NBCSN, Univision/Unimas, and the DK channels. I do wish one day DK would include both team's broadcasts as it's highly annoying to guess which one is used on a weekly basis. However for me the Revs fan it seems like DirecTV uses the CSN NE broadcast more often then not.

We can only make two lists...

 

Fanboys....

 

Why is it hard to accept that Directv is not perfect? There's no reason - NONE AT ALL - that they can't re-number the channels. You've been here since 199x or 2000. Who cares? Relearn a channel number. Its just stupid to have sports scattered all over the place. Even digital cable is re-organizing to have it all together. Directv would be even BETTER with a logical channel order. Yes, I have a guide. But the guide is very cluttered with only one-line of text. Yes, I know you've never seen it any other way, so that menas I am wrong and you are right. 

 

The HR34 Genie sucks and the guide is meh, but other than that Directv is great. Why not make it BETTER instead of accepting flaws?

EJ here's the deal. Most cable companies the hd channels are a 4 digit number. At least channel 2 is channel 2 here etc.

Dish does allow about 4 custom favorites lists so the grass may be greener...

Fifty channels in a row all sports wouldn't be that much fun. Especially when some have almost no content.

And what about channels that only have sports once in a while with movies most of the time etc?

 

And the biggest hurdle is contracts with content providers stipulate what channel they must be on.

Directv can't just change everything around. There is no perfect channel order. This has been requested

many times over the years. What you want isn't going to happen. Ever. So we deal with it and just

appreciate all the sports available here. Pretty much all I watch. And I have 19 recordable tuners

connected to 1 tv. I record it all (almost). I do agree the hr34 isn't working right lately.

Far from a fanboy, and yes you are right D is not perfect.(Shocking I know)  

 

I can list several areas where D could and hopefully will improve. Yet to remain on thread topic a few musings.

 

 

 

Grouping all the sports channels together for the "lazy and  unknowing"doesn't even make the top 100 in hoped for improvements.

I think putting the EPL in the 490s is fine. The Champions League has been in the 480s for a long time, and they moved MLS to the 470s. But it is very easy to miss when scrolling thru the guide. I totally go blank thru the 100s and 400s.
