    Probably forever, that's the way it was with Dish when they had the channel. Available to everyone during newscasts, a $20+ international premium during all other programming. (Although in Dish's case you needed to have a setup capable of getting their international slot at 118, while on DirecTV it's available to anyone capable of getting 99/103)

    The unlocks were automatic on DISH. One could even set a timer for the events. They had Free in their EPG titles. It is good to see that continue on DIRECTV.

    The channel opened up for the Good Morning Japan newscast, no English dub for this one, so the live dubbing might only be available for NHK's evening newscasts which air in the morning our time.

    I would like to anticipate CNBC alternate HD be activated in time for Saturday. NBC is airing Avalanche @ Predators or Devils @ Lightning. Whatever game you're not getting will be on CNBC. So game 1 will need to be on 355 and game 2 will need to be on 355-1. It's like what ESPN2 and ABC does with college football sometimes, and the cable channel game always shows up on 209-1. Personally, I have the Predators game on local NBC and the Devils game on DNS but most people will not have that option. Currently, there is no alternate activated.

    odd they used to reverse mirror NHL network/ NBCSN.

    Maybe use NHL-net alt or NBCSN alt slot but wait there is an US CNBC alternate FEED? Is that just the Canada feed that has things that they don't have the rights for removed? and there is no way that any NHL will be on that.

    CNBC has multiple alternate feeds on C-band, one of them will have replacement CNBC World programming for Canada and portions of the Caribbean and Latin America, the other will have the other NHL game for the reverse mirror.

    I was watching channel 2040 (JTV) before it had asked me if I wanted to add it. I did called Directv to inquire about the cost. The cost is additional $25.00 per month. Need to think about this. From what I was able to see, it looks like a great channel?

    I am surprised D* still doesn’t carry NASA HD after all these years.

    Why they can make any more money for adding it.

    because they need to make a deal with NASA to carry it in HD, i think they gain special permission to carry it in HD for the solar eclipse last August.

    I would think if Discovery en Espanol launches in HD, Discovery Familia HD would come as well. A few providers have added both of them, Cox the most prominent one.

    Not sure why 413 (discovery en Espanol) shows an HD logo next to the programming titles
    .. the content is SD.
