Discussion in 'General Satellite Discussion' started by James Long, Aug 24, 2011.
DirecTV lit up fuse in HD on Wednesday ... file updated.
DISH added the Outdoor Channel (396) on October 14th.
DirecTV added Al Jazeera America (347) and a second infomercial channel on November 2nd.
(DISH is testing Al Jazeera America and may add it soon - channel 216.)
Since this was updated, Dish has formally added AJ America, as well as added Smithsonian Channel in HD.
End of the year updates completed (unless there are more this week).
The thread has also been cleaned up to 2015 changes and less chatter.
I don't see Smithsonian Channel HD added to Dish on the new list.
Thanks for the update.
A lot of things have been changing over the past couple of months, at least on the Dish side of things. I don't know a thing about DirecTV. But for Dish:
ABC Family is now Freeform
ESPN Desportes is now in HD
Fox Sports 2 is now channel 149
Fox Deportes is now in HD
FXX is in AT120+ and channel 125
History Channel 2 is now Viceland
FXM (channel 384) in now in HD
Big 10 Network is now available Nationwide in 120+ and on channel 410
SportsSouth is now named Fox Sports Southeast
The name changes for ABC Family and H2 were their network's doing, not Dish's, so they changed on all cable/satellite providers.
Any chance you can do an updated one? In addition to the Dish things and renames mentioned by zippyfrog, DirecTV had a bunch of changes.
Al Jazeera America folded
DirecTV joined Dish in dropping Esquire
DirecTV added the following:
233 GSN HD (Choice, no longer part of Entertainment)
251 Oxygen HD (Xtra)
386 FM HD (Xtra)
623 One World Sports HD (Premier/Sports Pack)
669 FS Wisconsin HD 24/7
(The Part time FS Wisconsin Alternate is now on 669-1)
675 FS Oklahoma HD 24/7
2080 SBS HD (International Korean Channel)
You list the Blockbuster/Promo channel for Dish, so these should probably be included too:
111 Interactive Advertising Channel HD (Entertainment)
125 DirecTV Cinema Screening Room HD (Entertainment)
205 SportsMix HD (Choice)
Part time sports channels, I don't know if Dish carries them, but other cable providers do:
491-495 Premier League Extra HD (Xtra)
788-798 ESPN College Extra HD (Sports Pack/Premier)
DirecTV Cinema 3D moved to channel 103
MTV2 moved to channel 332
IFC moved to channel 333
Several other channels changed packages since this was last updated
219 Fox Sports 1 is now in Entertainment
220 NBCSN is now in Choice
256 TCM is now in Entertainment (and Select)
259 FXX is now in Entertainment (and Select)
271 Viceland is now in Entertainment (and Select)
307 WGN America is now in Choice
359 Fox Business is now in Entertainment (and Select)
557 Sundance is now in Choice
New RSN Alternates:
630-1 CSN New England Plus
696-2 CSN Bay Area Plus 2
The HD Cinema block is really a floating number on DirecTV. Right now it goes from 126-172, with gaps on 131, 135, 138, 146, 167 and 170, which were previously occupied by HD cinema channels that became new HD channel additions. They also have 3 part time HD PPV Event channels, 119, 121 and 123.
105 3D On Demand no longer exists
608 Fox College Sports is SD only and shouldn't be counted as a part time HD channel
690-1 RSN Alternate no longer exists
Haven't checked this thread in a long time. But on the Dish side there are a couple more updates as well:
Fox Sports 1 is now in AT120 and above
TAG has been added and in HD on 278 and available in all packages
PAC 12 network and it's alternates is now available nationwide in AT120+ and above
Tennis Channel is now in AT200 and above
I need to check all of the changes since the last update. Every time I think about it I move on to something else.
Not every channel will be listed. I may pull some off the list if they are not worth mentioning.
And less than 2 weeks after I post that updated about TAG being in all packages, it appears that Dish has dropped the channel as I no longer see it in the program guide, and no mention of it anymore on Dish's website.
James, I see you're still showing GSN not in HD on DIRECTV.
Also don't know if you should include the 4K channels since you're still showing the 3D channel, which BTW is one channel 103 which is a PPV channel.
104 is the DIRECTV 4K channel showing various 4K programming
105 is the 4K PPV channel
106 is the 4K channel which shows occasional live programming.
I have still been doing other things.
It's from December 2015, so it's not going to have that and other things that have changed since then. (i.e. DirecTV getting Oxygen, FM and One World Sports, Dish getting FXM, Fox Deportes and ESPN Deportes, ABC Family becoming Freeform, H2 becoming Viceland, Al Jazeera America folding, both of them dropping Esquire, etc)
If you can't wait for him to update it, just look at mine and zippyfrog's last few posts after you look at it. We pretty much cover everything that has changed since then on DirecTV and Dish.
A few more updates for those keeping track:
One World Sports rebranded to Eleven Sports
CSN Bay Area and CSN California are rebranding to NBC Sports Bay Area and NBC Sports California on Sunday
Added Pursuit HD and made it HD only (It's a channel that pays to be on the lineup so it's available in all Packages)
One America News and AWE TV are in test mode and will go live on 4/5 (Don't know the package placement yet)
LMN is now in Xtra and higher (although it's grandfathered in Choice for existing subscribers)
NBCSN is now in Entertainment
QVC HD is in test mode
There might have been some other package changes involving channels like NBCSN
Yes - Dish added NBCSN to their Top 120 package and above (as opposed to the Top 200). Also, it appears that NFL Network is now in the Top 120+ package and above (instead of Top 200 or needing Multi-Sport pack on Top 120+). America's Top 120 Plus | English Programming | MyDISH | DISH Customer Support I can't get verification on it from anyone, but everywhere on Dish's site says Top 120+ now.
The other one that I have seen a change for is NBA TV, it is listed in all packages on Dish's site - Smart, Flex, Welcome - but I find that hard to believe that NBA TV would be added to all packages.
Does Dish modify their list during previews? NBA TV might be in preview right now for the end of the regular season.
True - didn't think about that. Yes, some of their pages do update for previews and there is a warning on some of the pages that free preview channels do show up. Wish it were consistent though.
