    I'm planning to sign up for DISH soon, but there seems to be conflicting information on their website regarding what packages include FOX Soccer. Unfortunately I don't have enough posts to link pages, but according to the HDTV page it is available in both the AT120 plus and AT250. On the package page for AT120 plus it is NOT listed even though I recall seeing it there last month.

    Then on sports packages page it claims it is available in the multi-sport pack.

    The channel numbers however do not include FSC and I know people who have this package and indeed do not get FSC. Can someone please clarify the cheapest way to get FSC? Thanks.

    Finally got clarification on this through customer support chat. Fox Soccer SD is available on Top 120 plus, but you have to have Top 250 to get the HD version.

    Very confusing and contradicts their website. Lost a sub with that one.

    I still have FSC in HD and I'm on 200. I don't know why. But I'm enjoying it.

    Fox Soccer Channel HD is available in HD 250, HD Dos, HD Max.

    FSC and FSC+ have moved to 406 and 407. No sign of FSC HD! They better fix that ASAP. It is a core channel for me, unlike the dozens of useless ppv hd channels. I had been hoping that FSC+ would go hd soon.

    I have been an everything subscriber for ten years. May start looking at other options.

    I mean, leave that crap on Facebook where it belongs.

    FSC SD has been moved to channel 406. FSC HD is still on channel 149 but has no guide info, only “this channel is moving to 406”. But 406 is FSC SD not HD. Can someone on here from Dish please advise whether this means Dish is dropping FSC in HD? (I'll be leaving Dish if it does).

    All of the ridicule notwithstanding, this is a big deal for me as well. With my favorite league just now into it's second week of the season, I'll be very disappointed if the move of FSC from 149 to 406 results in the loss of the games in HD.

    I'll be looking to switch ASAP if FSC gets dropped. I, like others here, had planned to pick up FSC+ when it went HD. I hope we hear news to the contrary very soon.

    9520 is the existing home of FSC HD ... with the bad EPG information that is confusing the issue. Since that channel is not moving DISH should not have messed up the EPG on 9520. But it looks like it will be fixed at 6am ET. (DISH can always break it again.)

    Changing the EPG information the way DISH does when moving a channel is very annoying for a DVR user. Scheduled events fail to record ("wrong program"). If DISH is going to do this they need to develop a way of modifying timers remotely when a channel moves ... for example - instructing DVRs to move all timers set to 149 over to 406 without user intervention. Every active DVR bac to the 501 has name based recording, which means when the EPG is messed up programs don't record.

    Moving the HD mapdown to 406 now would be a good thing too. If they had to put up a temporary (no channel bandwidth required) mirror of the channel so it would map to BOTH 149 HD and 406 HD that would be better.


    Update:
    Apparently "break it again" is the choice. The EPG for present/next for 9520 (the current show and the next show) is messed up. The overnight downloaded EPG (beyond the next show) is correct, but as each show passes the error creeps forward through the day.

    I just made a phone call to CS. They told me that ‘they CAN NOT:nono2: guarantee that there will be FSC HD after September 7’.
    :confused:
    I am glad that I will be switching to D* next week.

    James Long,

    If you could give me specific times when the EPG is not displaying the correct information, I will submit a ticket to have someone look at this. Thanks.

    Now through the next 9 days (Sept 5th).

    It was right starting this morning but apparently someone had not cleared the good information out and replaced it with the incorrect information when my receiver did its reset at 4:05am this morning. When I forced a new EPG download this morning just before 6:00am I got the current one, broken "till further notice". :(
