    I have the sports pack, and beINSports HD shows up on 620 in the guide. I did not tune to it this morning, though, so I cannot verify whether it is live. I expect that it will be in both the sports pack (620) and the Spanish language pack (456).

    GolTV HD was live on 627, but they were just showing infomercials at 6:45 this morning.

    I am getting no access to 620 or 426 and I have Mas Ultra package. I reauthorized my receiver and restarted the receivers too.

    Would love to see Cooking Channel, HLN and GSN go HD next.

    I just ran through my guide to see the sparkling new HD channels. The way my guide is set up, it's supposed to display only the HD channels for those avaiable in HD and not show the SD. However, for BBC America, it displays both SD and HD. It does not do this for any other channel, including the ones added today.
    Question: Is there anything I can do about this?

    Apparently 620 is sports pack only. I'm in the same boat.

    In my situation its not even on the guide, the channel doesn't even exist. All I get is "Channel Not Available" on the tv guide banner.

    7:39 AM, Memphis TN: BBCAHD up! Showing Graham Norton rerun. Im seeing the channel moves on 620. Those were the only 2 I cared about so I'll call it a festivus miracle.

    With ION coming on, H2 will complete all my HD wishes.

    Agree, what a great long-awaited pair to bring on board. Now give me DIY and I'll never complain again!

    Interesting choice of words.

    Could be testing is not complete, could be tied to internal or contractual or marketing timeline ... it's one of the benefits of rarely announcing externally a schedule ... a channel goes "live" when it goes "live".

    Certainly great to see BBCA HD, Nat Geo Wild HD, and Disney Junior HD for all those that are fans of the respective channels.

    I'm tickled pink that BBCA is now up in HD! It was the last of the basic channels I was really interested in.

    Of course, I'm happy to see the other ones light up too for fans of those channels.

    Now bring on Epix as an addition to the HD Extra Pack or as a standalone premium and I'll be even happier! :)

    About a month ago I decided to end my long commitment to DISH. I had been keeping it active, so I could have BBCA-HD, HBOGO on my Roku and Red Zone for the upcoming NFL season. Well 1st Directv lowered the Sunday Ticket price, then they pretty much made HBO & Max on demand the same as GO and now BBCA-HD. For once I think I made the right decision. Oh and did I mention they gave me another DVR for free. I guess its time to start crying for HUB, ION, and Chiller in HD ...:lol::):D

    I have MAS Ultra also and channels 426 and 620 were up and running until midnight, Now...could it be that DirectV might be throwing the 2 beIN Sports Channels into a HIGHER priced Tier ???:nono:

    If so..we're just like before we found out Al Jazeera was coming to Town. Clueless

    So HAPPY to see BBC America. I've already set my HR24 on new series links for Doctor Who and Top Gear. I NEVER can get enough of Top Gear. I've sometimes had over 50 episodes I've watched. I'm that addicted.

    I use a custom guide, starting off with Channels I get and hiding SD duplicates, and unchecking the channels I don't want to see on a daily basis. This morning I had the pleasure of checking BBCA and NGW's HD boxes, and unchecking the SD. You might want to do the same.
