    Do I need the 119 satellite for the Mas Latino package?

    My 5LNB doesn’t even show 119 anymore in satellite settings, and the 110 evaporated well before that. My guess is no unless I’m missing something. I guess we should take a look at the maps on this site.

    Solid Signal sales page for 3LNB (3D2RBLNB) will not work for Latino programming, but I think that info might be outdated?

    I thought they recently moved all the 400 channels to a different bird

    They were dropped from 119 after the mirror was moved from reverse band to Ka. So any SL3 LNB (whether reverse band or not) should pick them up. If you aren't seeing them, maybe the receiver needs to be restarted to figure out where they've moved to.

    The only case where you will now be unable to receive them is with an SD only receiver, or an old 101/110/119 only dish. In that case you will need to contact Directv about an upgrade.

    ^what slice said. The former 119 Spanish channels are now on 103. They even say (103) after their name for some reason, probably to make it clear when they had both feeds up.

    The same is true for CGTN, the English PI channel on 2119 that is now also on 103.

    During the transition they had both the 119 & 103 versions live which is why the 103 versions have 103 in their name. All Spanish & some Chinese programming (that was on 119) is now on 103. This includes the Music Choice channels that were on 119 as well. After the transition and discontinuation of the 119 feeds they never bothered with updating the 103 versions to remove 103 from the name.

    They have duplicates of the other WorldDirect channels currently located on the reverse band of the 99 satellite. So if you have equipment that is able to pick up the reverse band you will see all the international channels in the 2000 range and they have (99R) in their name.
