    They could I think there is still an open space in The Cinemax channel area.

    Reelz already has a channel spot, So if they added an HD version I think it would stay where it is in the Line up.

    From the channel numbering change announcement: "Your DVR settings (Season passes, etc.) as well as Favorite Channels feature should not be impacted."

    Note: If you are someone who utilizes the CCHAN keyword in your auto-records, make sure that you won't be affected.

    damondlt was responding to MysteryMan @ #181 [about OuterMax].



    ^ This is true. Chs. 512 to 514 are post-HBO screens. Chs. 518 and 524 are empty slots for Cinemax screens. ^

    I was at Wikipedia.org's site, and here is a link to cable-television programming, from the United States, concerning premium-movie networks…



    @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_cable_and_satellite_television_networks#Movies



    I'm inclined to consider the newly establishing slots between chs. 558 to 563 enough to place Epix (and all four of its screens). It's also enough for FEARnet. And it is enough, around Encore, to consider the expansion of the expected MoviePlex, IndiePlex, and RetroPlex in the channel ranges of the 530s and 540s.

    This doesn't mean it's all coming; but, then again, why do some remapping (with Hallmark Movie Channel, going to ch. 565, still first in sequential order)—effective [Wednesday,] 07.31.2013—if this is not the intent of DirecTV?

    Re: channel changes

    I know it doesn't relate to the July 31 changes, but I wonder where they are going to put FXX. It would be weird to leave it in the 600s, but there are no available numbers in the 200s.

    259 just became available due to Cinemoi not paying their bill, and they have moved infomercial channels before to make room. Channel 219 used to be an infomercial channel before MavTV was added, that infomercial channel was moved to channel 310.

    Fox Soccer/FXX will likely move, however there's no guarantee that Speed/Fox Sports 1 along with Fuel/Fox Sports 2 will move right away or at all. It took about a year before NBC Sports Network moved to the 200s after the change from Versus, and CBS Sports Network is still in the 600s.

    Doubtful that the 9xxx test stuff has anything interesting, most likely just the usual special events or private channels.

    Or Maybe FXX, if its picked up, will end up in the hd extra pack and in hd only in the 500s? You never know! That could be the compromise for picking up FS1.

    Another guess…

    • Chs. 558 to 563 (whatever exact order): Lifetime Movie Network HD; AMC HD; Turner Classic Movies HD; and Fox Movie Channel.

    Two more slots would remain.

    And, yes, this would be … lame.


    :rolleyes:

    FXX is going to be on 619 (HD/SD) (old Fox Soccer slot in the sports range). This info is from Wikipedia which we all know is the summary of all knowledge. :rolling:
