Is Directv testing to see if Spike better fits in with the USA/FX/TNT channels than off on it's own in the 300s?

If I wasn't used to tuning into 325, this placement makes more sense than were it is now.


Not really, it just used to be on that channel in that area, because it used to be tnn back in the day. Now its Spike of course, and it makes no sense to be in the range of music channels so they are just organizing it better.

Oops, I interpreted your post backwards. I thought you meant 241 for a week...which made no sense.

I like this move, and it makes much more sense than being sandwiched in between music and shopping :rolleyes:

It would make more sense to have it there then 325. When it started as The Nashville Channel having it with the other music channels was the right place but Spike is totally different now and out of place at 325.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Star Wars is starting April 4th.

April 4th @ 8 PM ET - The Phantom Menace
April 5th @ 8 PM ET - Attack of the Clones
April 6th @ 8 PM ET - Revenge of the Sith

and I don't know for certain but I assume they will do the same thing the next weekend with Original Trilogy since A New Hope is not airing on Spike anywhere in the next 2 weeks.


In HD? OAR?

Spike's been re-mapped to 241. You may want to update series links just in case. It is still, for the moment, still being mirrored on 325.

Thanks for the heads up. I was wondering what happened to my Ultimate Fighter series links. They were all set a week ago when I checked, then gone today.
