    I came across a response, in a previous similar posting of mine, that TeenNick is being carried in HD by AT&T’s U–verse. (As of June 2, 2019, at 09:55 p.m. ET, Wikipedia says AT&T’s U–verse does not currently carry TeenNick in HD. So, I will note this.)

    I will correct the wording, by switching, with Military History and Epix Drive–In. (Done, as of June 2, 2019, @ 09:45 p.m. ET.)

    Zap2It, which is where I got the list, does not have TVG listed. (I don’t know why.) Wikipedia has TVG on ch. 671 (SD) and 1671 (HD) on AT&T’s U–verse. So, I have since added it. But, TVG2 is not currently carried in HD by AT&T’s U–verse. And I have corrected that “296–01” of Cartoon Network—West HD, should it get added by AT&T’s DirecTV, to be located on ch. 297.

    If you want to see what U-verse carries (HD or not), here's the link I use, where they seem to keep the channels updated in "real time": (some other links I've used are still NOT up to date with recent changes from a month ago) Note sometimes this link does go down, but eventually comes back up...good ol' AT&T. :rolleyes:

    AT&T U-verse
    (if you have to put in a zip code, just use 62704...any zip will show the same results, except for local channels & possibly some RSN's)

    Couple other channels on U-verse, that recently went in HD - but NOT on DirecTV, are:
    -Daystar (national feed)
    -Ride TV was recently added, but ONLY in the HD range on ch 1676, but it does NOT have an "HD" designation on the online list...so myself & oriolesmagic are NOT 100% sure it's actually in HD. I'm going to try to pop over at someone's house I know, that has U-verse & see for myself in the next few days.

    Also note there are some recent channels on DirecTV, that did NOT get added to U-verse:
    -Hallmark Drama did not get added at all
    -Inspiration Network did NOT get upgraded to HD
    -The national ION feed on U-verse has never been in HD & still isn't

    One other little tidbit...you may as well take C-Span3 completely off your future D* add list; I've been told by numerous people, that it is only available to cable/wireline providers...which is why NEITHER sat company has added it at all.

    While it may never have been made available to satellite providers, there's nothing explicitly preventing that. I would presume there's an uplink of C-SPAN 3, just like C-SPAN and C-SPAN 2. There's plenty of cable companies that don't carry C-SPAN 3 either. I've always figured it to be more contractual.

    The link you shared is my only hope to get accurate information on AT&T. The other U-Verse website is just a mess.

    Of course! How else would cable operators pull the signal out of thin air if it were not relayed via satellite?
    CSPAN 3 is on Galaxy 14 at 125 W. All three CSPANs are carried in SD and HD on the same transponder.

    Thanks for the link this works much better! Ride TV's website says that U-Verse is in HD, also that link you provided now shows Ride TV as an HD channel.

    Also with that link where it has the "View by Package" drop down menu the packages that end in "ALL" (i.e. 200ALL) is the "All Included" variant for U-Verse (similar to how DirecTV has Select then Select All Included). For U-Verse All Included (ALL) includes at least 1 set-top box, HD service and DVR service in case anyone was interested about them.

    I updated my list to include Ride TV HD, on AT&T U–verse’s ch. 1676, and following is a link to that site’s information:

    Actually it only shows it being in the 1000+ (HD) range, but it does NOT actually say "RIDE TV HD" - it just shows "RIDE TV".
    DO be aware there ARE a couple U-verse channels in the (HD) range, (ie: mostly shopping channels) that are NOT actually in HD at all...so again, that's why myself & OM were questioning it actually being in HD.

    BUT, while I could NOT get over to see my friend's U-verse, I talked to her yesterday & she says it's MOST definitely in HD...so I'm comfortable that OM can add this one to his HD list@avsforum ;)

    Ah I see what you mean now by most of the channel names having "HD" beside them. I was going by the column labeled "HD" that is beside "Category" and "RIDE TV" has a tick mark in the "HD" column.

    Most channels that have "HD" in the name also have a tick in the "HD" column. Ride TV seems to be an exception as it omits the "HD" label but has the tick in the column.

    The only other discrepancy between the channel name and the HD column is they have "Audience Network HD" listed on channels 114, 599, 1114 and 1599 but no tick in the HD column. The same goes for "Kids HD Multiview" on 1301, "Sports HD Multiview" on 1601 and "News HD Multiview" on 1201.

    Bring BeIN Sports (both channels) back and upgrade TyC Sports to HD.

    I’m seeing Comedy Central West on channel 901 and BET West on channel 902. I’m thinking those didn’t get mapped correctly?
