    It looks like there are two places in each record where the flag needs to be changed. DISH changed the one affecting the Hopper mapdown (removing the PartTime bit) but did not change the bit affecting the older receivers.

    Are all the subchannels that launched on Dish still on Dish? I wonder could the new Quest subchannel that is launching the end of this month launch on Dish as Justice Network (owned by same company) is available on Dish?

    Thanks for this info on NBC Sports Chicago! Great to see. I am guessing that in an uplink in the near future, we will see that part time flag for non Hopper receivers be changed.

    Can anyone attest to what plus/alternate RSN feeds are offered in HD on Dish?

    I am compiling this information for the HD RSN chart I manage on AVSforum.

    Thanks in advance.

    Do you mean full time or turned on whenever a game is in HD? For example, HD channel 440 might NBC Sports Chicago Plus on one day, then NBC Sports Washington Plus the next day. Dish doesn't have any alt's in HD full time or a designated channel for the alts, but has many turned on just for live games.

    That's what I thought with the sports alternate channels. So is all the content provided in HD? If I'm a Chicago sports fan for example, even if I don't have a dedicated Plus feed, I still get all the content in HD?

    I would not say "all" when it comes to things on alt feeds ... or out of market reception.

    James is correct. I would not say "all" - as I look at your chart, the best case scenario would be to have a category that is "part time" for them. Dish still treats those part time RSN's as subfeeds even though the are full time channels.

    I can only speak to FS Wisconsin from my travels. When I go up to Milwaukee, Dish will have Fox Sports North as the RSN for Milwaukee, but when the Bucks are on, then the FS Wisconsin feed is on an alternate channel. So they have FS Wisconsin Part Time. If there was a category on your list for part time, then you could say that Dish carries FS Wisconsin, Carolina, Tennessee, Kansas City, Indiana, Oklahoma, as well as all the plus channels.

    The only thing that I would say is an error is that Dish DOES carry FS Ohio Alternate Full Time in HD - on Dish that is labeled as FS Cincinatti. 425 is FS Ohio HD and 427 is FS Cincinnati HD.

    Thank you.

    So if I lived in Wisconsin, I would receive a blacked out Timberwolves game on the standard Fox Sports North channel (if the Bucks and Timberwolves were playing at the same time), and have to search for the in-market Bucks on a temporary feed of Fox Sports Wisconsin that would change from channel to channel, depending on the day?

    The Ohio situation is so confusing, because of what happens with the Blue Jackets (apparently a nightmare for DirecTV subscribers in NE OH if there is a conflict with the Cavaliers). Now that they're under the same umbrella, they really should move the Cavs to SportsTime Ohio and have that be the Cleveland-specific channel, leaving the Blue Jackets and Reds on the Cincinnati/Columbus feed.

    Looking into it, the only reason I didn't mark Fox Sports Ohio Plus/Alternate as being in HD on Dish is because what satellite and AT&T call Ohio Plus is different from what cable does.

    DirecTV, Dish and AT&T have separate geographic feeds for Cleveland and Cincinnati. From what I gather, these often air the same things to a place like Columbus where all the content is in play. So on DirecTV and Dish, both feeds for example will show a Cavaliers game, even if the Blue Jackets are on. In Ohio at least, this is where Spectrum, WOW and Armstrong have a distinct advantage, having both a dedicated Ohio HD feed and Ohio Plus/Alternate feed in HD, where in Cleveland, one channel gets the Cavaliers, and the other gets the Blue Jackets. Cox in the Cleveland suburbs only carries this feed in SD at this time, as far as I am aware.

    DISH has added slate channels to 623-03 and 623-04 for TV Japan. (Not visible to me. If any TV Japan subscribers see the channel please post.)

    It says: "Thank you for your interest in Japanese programming on DISH. We look forward to providing you with new Japanese programming soon!"

    Not sure what that would be. TV Japan in some form or another is the only legal global TV broadcast of Japanese language TV I know. streaming we have crunchyroll which is more anime heavy. Guess I will learn something soon. We'll probably wait to cancel Dish until our move at the end of May and chew through hopper recordings.

    Speaking of streaming have you noticed the options under mydish programming Add-on?
    Arabic: SVOD Shahid
    $ 10.00
    South Asian: ZVOD
    $ 4.99
    Curiosity Stream
    $ 5.99
    Up Faith & Family
    $ 4.99

    Having services like Curiosity stream is a good idea to help keep people inside the Dish ecosystem and inside the Hopper GUI. I am sure they get a cut of that curiosity stream subscription too. Maybe they will add others like Acorn, BritBox and such one sees in Amazon Prime Channels.
