A new guess. FEARnet.
If the channels being moved into this space fit thematically with the HD+Pack, I don't think they would have moved the existing channels down. It makes more sense to leave those where they are and just move channels at the end. So my guess is that whatever goes into the 558-563 gap would be closer thematically to the movie channels.
Another thing that comes to mind is the new FXX. Would they move CHILLER off of 257 to make room for FXX next to FXM? Or maybe it'll take over 250 and that shopping channel will move someplace else... hmm... argh... dunno...
They use almost all the channels above the Hi Definition extra pack now, I don't think they have room to move any channels up.
They're not after a few weeks from now, everything up to 580 will be clear. The private network broadcasts that were in the range migrated to the 9500s. What's left right now is placeholders to tell them the channel has moved whenever a broadcast is scheduled. (i.e. Verizon used to have their broadcasts on 572, now 572 has a message telling them to turn to 9551)
Of all the theories to refute you choose that one?
I guess that makes the rest "plausible".
I would say no to all the theories posted that I have read.
I still stand by FEARnet.
Satelliteracer still haven't no to FEARnet!
ESPN Goal Line / Espn Buzzer beater? Unlikey to be in an HD only pack.
NFL red zone (Nfl network ver) some systems do have it in an HD pack or on it's own.
esquire (aka g4)?
funimation channel ?
TheBlaze (unlikely to add a news channel to the HD only pack)
Maybe they are going to put Retroplex and Indieplex in the HD pack.
I'll be frank with you, Satelliteracer:
Your "no" does not sound encouraging.
If you care to respond, I suppose another emoticon will have to do.
QVC HD, and Playboy TV HD
Sorry, not the case.
Hmm. 6-channel gap between Sundance SD and IFC SD/HD.
Seems like an appropriate spot for more movie-stations.
I don't think any channels put into those slots would be part of the HD Extra package, because that package starts with Hallmark Movie Channel HD, soon to be channel 565. All the channels from the HD Extra package are available in HD only, to the best of my knowledge. With IFC still available in SD and HD, it stands to reason that it hasn't been regrouped as one of the HD Extra package channels. In fact, IFC is considered a national channel instead of a premium channel according to the package list I just viewed on directv.com.
Based on satelliteracer's hints, I think the best guess can be made from looking at the surrounding channels. Both movie stations with commercials, Sundance in SD (premium channel) and IFC in HD (national channel), so I'm guessing the channels put between them will also be premium and/or national movie stations with commercials. And I'm narrowing that to national stations because of the commercials. I think Sundance will be downgraded to a national station soon with its changing programming, like IFC.
And because Sundance is still only in SD, as is Flix preceding it, I imagine the first couple of channels in those slots will be SD movie-channels with commercials and the remainder will be HD movie-channels with commercials.
So I'm imagining the channel line-up looking something like this, maybe not the exact order, but SD's on one side and SD/HD's on the other:
556 - Flix SD
557 - Sundance SD
558 - ReelzChannel SD
559 - FXM SD
560 - [New Station]
561 - TCM SD/HD
562 - LMN SD/HD
563 - AMC SD/HD
564 - IFC SD/HD
I say 560 for the new station because it's a nice rounded number, easy to advertise and market. And DirecTV loves to gloat whenever they have something new.
So then, what national (not premium) movie stations is DirecTV missing from its lineup that haven't already been shot down?
Didn't satelliteracer say that DBSTalk speculation thus far, including mine (@ #30: http://www.dbstalk.com/topic/206454-prem-channel-location-changes-731/page-2#entry3158480 ), are incorrect?
Well, he said he "would say no to all the theories posted that he read." Interpret that as you will.
That being said, my guess is similar to yours, but it varies in the specific way I grouped the channels; with SD-only channels in the front and SD/HD-channels in the rear, relative to the surrounding channels (Sundance and IFC). I didn't see that distinction in your theory or any mention of ReelzChannel. And I incorporated my guess for where the "new channel" will be instituted, based on Satelliteracer's original statement, "a new channel, plus movement of a few others into that space created." I think those differences make my theory unique enough from yours to warrant mention.
Why on earth would those channels want to move up there? That doesn't even make sense. I thinks new channels.
Did you read the entire thread before declaring your incredulity?
APB101 provided a great why: http://www.dbstalk.com/topic/206454-prem-channel-location-changes-731/?p=3158501.
And Satelliteracer stated, "a new channel [not channels], plus movement of a few others into that space created:" http://www.dbstalk.com/topic/206454-prem-channel-location-changes-731/?p=3158153
I can't make these things up.
And I just don't buy those channels wanting to move, yes I have been keeping up. If they are they are dumb.
At the very least amc should not want to move. And I thought sat racer said one new now, and more latter on.
I don't think any channels "want" to move. They are inanimate and do not possess free will.
