    Thanks Satelliteracer!! Still hoping that with D11 lighting up that STO will become 24/7 but that's for another time and another thread.

    Do we know if the other sports networks in the 200's (ESPNs/NFL/NHL/Tennis) are going to move to the 600's?

    I'm glad to see there's a spot for Comcast SportsNet Northwest, if it's ever added. But what happened to the Big 10 Network's alternates?

    Doesn't look like it. The list seems fairly comprehensive for the summer and fall.

    Cheers,

    Where will the B10 network's overflow games be shown? Also no spot for FSN Detroit Plus?

    Nice catch on the BTN. We'll need that info before football season. :)

    There never was an official spot for FSN Detroit Plus, IIRC we only had to go to it a few times when the Tigers, Pistons, and Red Wings were playing. Now that WE HAVE THE CUP!!!! :D and the Pistons lost :mad:, I don't think there's going to be much of a need for it. Usually when there is there will be a scroll at the bottom of the screen talking about what channel to use for not only DIRECTV, but DISH, CoNcast, etc.

    One question.

    WHY?

    Four months of changes. The line up will change 11 times between June 15th and October 15th.

    Why not just change the darn line up, once? Preferbably on the day regular season baseball ends, when the RSNs are going to be carrying nothing much local for a few weeks anyway.

    And, what does it say about Yankees fans that DirecTV singles YES out for a shift after the season, when every other team's fans can apparently be trusted to figure it out in-season.

    Dumb.

    SamC - it's simple. The Yankees are the #1 baseball team nationally. Like it or not, that's just the way it is.

    Actually, it's more likely to say they can't figure it out!

    It was hard enough to find the 'Plus' channel last time...

    And tfederov, its not like anyone else needs the overflow channel right now either. But there are plenty listed...

    Remember that this list is only for the *changes*. So FSN Detroit Plus probably isn't moving. Also it was usually 669 and now FSN Detroit itself is moving up near it. My guess is that what they might be doing is grouping channels in a region together and they share the "overflow" or "plus" channels as needed.

    I may have skimmed through this too fast, but how will Series Links be affected?

    BTN is going to 610, I don't see any channels on 611, 612 or 613 after all the moves are completed. I would expect them to end up there.

    I would imagine that Series Links won't be affected. DirecTV has been really good about that in the past.
