    Well, I WAS making a joke (apparently a feeble one). But, if the launch were listed in the guide it might be stumbled upon by viewers. If only 0.1% of subscribers found it, that's 20,000 calls all coming in at once.

    However, I doubt that is really the reason. :D ;)

    On previous launches they have opened up the private network to the public and right now 9549 is showing a slide and music.

    They didn't for D14. The channel isn't active yet, that's just the standby logo feed that appears on all part time channels when not in use.

    I remembered after I posted that my recording of D14 failed due to it being not available to me. However I know previous launches were available to everybody as I watched and recorded them.

    I did notice yesterday when I searched that it was also listed on a Cinema channel (163 I think) but that is gone now. However the way they are describing it in the guide sounds like they are promoting it to everyone. We can only hope

    Well the previous two weren't, D14 and IS30 (DLA-1). Though perhaps since IS30 was for DIRECTV LA, it's closed telecast to DIRECTV USA subs. is understandable.

    But what has me doubting it is that D14, which was a more significant launch to USA subs. than D15 (except for it's R-band payload) will be, was closed as well.

    The Guide description for the broadcast itself informs this is a "Series, LIve, Premiere." :)

    Doesn't have an HD tag, alas. ;) (Nor UHD, though I'm not activated for 4k UHD present.

    Peace,

    Does the app go right into a live feed, before the countdown, or am I supposed to switch to a certain section?

    I think the 9549 channel will be available to everyone. The scheduled pre-launch slide is showing (this is not the logo/music filler)

    They are using a 17m fairing to hold both satellites. DIRECTV 15 on top, Sky Mexico 1 is in the lower bunk.

    And we have launch. :)

    And we start hearing "nominal" in the local language. :)
