KyL where’s Sportsman channel HD at?
It's a little quiet right now!

Just to spice things up:
No New channels but all Spanish and International channels are now ACTIVE on Sat 99cr (reverse band)
For those who don't know, that means all new residential installs can now use a reverse band 3 LNB. No more need to receive 119 for anything, or any need for the second dish for international customers.
I have a second dish for international but no longer use the service, I do have the Spanish package and notice the channels that were cropped before are now letterbox, I'm I going to need to change anything continue receiving the Spanish package? What if I want the international channels in the future do I have to change the LNB?
Do you have an RB 5?
If you want the international channels in the future they will install whatever is required for it. If you have the second dish you probably have a legacy 5 LNB dish that's connected together with the second dish to a SWM switch. They would probably replace that LNB with a reverse band SWM 3 LNB, and remove the SWM switch. You wouldn't need the second dish any longer but they won't take it down for you.
I don't think so, setup is a few years old from the time the Genie Gen 2 came out.
So as far as the Spanish package I'm good?
If you are getting it now you will continue to get it.
Still waiting for Nicktoons HD and TeenNick HD at this household.
Does anyone carry them in HD?
NickToons is carried in HD by AT&T U-Verse channel 1318 and by Verizon FiOS channel 754. TeenNick is carried in HD by AT&T U-Verse channel 1322 and by Verizon FiOS channel 755.
Following my Post #07, DIRECTV HD Channel Anticipation (Official 2019 Thread), I looked at Zap2It.com—even though it isn’t always kept to date (example with TeenNick HD not listed available on U–verse)—for what is carried on AT&T’s U–verse, but not on AT&T’s DirecTV, as a guide for what may be anticipated.
I cannot, and do not, assume there is a plan to sync the channel lineups (minus, for example, subchannels and any other matters separating cable and satellite television providers). But, when it comes to contractual negotiations with national programmers, especially when the time has arrived, I cannot figure AT&T would want, for example with Epix, a programmer made available to subscribers only on one service but not on the other.
The following list are programmers are available in HD on U–verse. (I did not go into foreign-language programmers. And I will not list west-coast feeds. The point is to list the programmers.) The list is in numerical order according to the channel mapping on U–verse, which places HD in the 1000s (or, if there is also a SD, +1,000). An * is applied next to a programmer which is not available at all on DirecTV. (If there are any additions or corrections—please say so.)

For those of us who've been waiting for DTV to convert Fox Soccer Plus to HD full-time and stop charging it as a premium channel, there may be some good news in the horizon. This week FUBO.TV added Fox Soccer Plus-HD to their lowest basic channel package and grouped it with FS1 and FS2. Fox Soccer Plus used to be part of fubo's sports mini-pack for an additional fee, similar to DTV.
So perhaps Fox Sports is now renewing contracts with Fox Soccer Plus included as a basic sports channel ? Hopefully DTV's Fox renewal will mirror FUBO.TV's deal !
BTW the channel's HD on fubo looks very good. They also carry a lot of national commercials which surprised me given that it's been a premium channel with a limited audience reach.
They got rid of ZLiving at the of January and they are going to go to streaming.
Don't hold your breath, most of Fox's recent deals resulted in providers like Optimum/Altice doing the opposite, taking it out of a sports pack/premium tier and making it a standalone channel.
Yes. My sibling, also from the area of Detroit, Michigan, has Comcast. Z–Living HD is made available. I think it has to do with IP-delivered channels of Z–Living HD, i24 HD, and Newsy HD. But, I don’t know anything more. From that list I provided, I focused on the programmers of the Nickeolodeon sister channels and as well as the multiscreens of premium-movie progrmmers. For those programmers not carried at all on DirecTV, but available on U-verse, I looked at Epix. I wrote, sometime in 2018, that I was sensing Epix would come to DirecTV. I can’t say when I would estimate that. But, it was added last year by Comcast (well, only the primary Epix). Some of this has some logic to it. And then there are guessings of some quirks. It is odd to me that Sportsman Channel HD was not yet added—and this is some time already after the upgrade-to-HD of Outdoor Channel HD. (It took a good five years for DirecTV to add HSN HD after it added QVC HD. Again—quirks.) That list is meant more as a possible helpful guide for what to anticipate.
