Does anyone happen to know of a complete one page list of all spanish programming offered by both providers, and which channels are available in which packages from each provider?  If one doesn't exist, I'll make it myself soon...

Very well then.  Here it is:

Please let me know if anyone find any channels listed twice in that list (aside from HD vs standard).  It's hard to compare foreign channels accross providers - sometimes they have slightly different names for the exact same channel, or the exact same name for two different channels...(?)

Any other corrections would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

Amazing work!  But I tell you I am shock to see that DirecTV® has more spanish channels then Dish.  One thing Dish is good at (or I though it was)  is in international packages.

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

Some issues I spotted:
beIN Sport 2 on Dish 873 and beIN Sport on DirecTV 426 are the same
Univision Foro TV on Dish and Foro TV on DirecTV are the same
DirecTV also has Univision Oeste on channel 403
Telefutura HD (TFTwHD) is now UniMas West HD

DirecTV's list includes Cartoon Network and Disney XD since they have Spanish audio via SAP, Dish probably has the SAP feed too.
