    As some one who is adding a bit of the western arc to an existing eastern arc setup.

    I use the eastern as my primary. I worry if they are cramming all of that, what that will do for the quality. I've already noticed horrible mpeg ghosting in HD.

    I do not like the numbers games ... after all, when HD started on DISH the limit was two channels per transponder (MPEG2 on QPSK). Comparing that to MPEG4 on 8PSK how many channels are too many? I'm sure math can find a number but the reality is "whatever the market will bear".

    I consider DISH HD quality to be "acceptable". If others cannot accept what they see they can try DIRECTV. I do not expect DISH to reduce the number of HD channels per transponder. I hope they are doing their best to give each channel the best chance possible of having good picture quality.

    As far as why channels are moving - I do not know. I can only guess and in this case (move channels from 72.7 to 61.5) I do not have a guess. I can understand moving the SD duplicates to 77 or removing them (sorry xmguy) to free up space, but DISH does not seem to be adding enough channels to need more space.

    This is a totally off-the-wall idea, but since 72.7 is a Canadian satellite, could Dish be preparing to offer a Dish-branded service in Canada, similar to Dish Mexico on the 77 satellite? I know that Echostar already makes the equipment for Bell satellite service in Canada, but since Dish and Echostar are now separate companies, it is not totally outside the realm of possibility that Dish could choose to offer their own separate satellite service in Canada.

    DISH would need the approval of Canadian regulators. I doubt they would be allowed to compete against the two current systems. DISH has permission of Mexico to use 77 to serve Mexico and the US (separate transponders).

    I really wish we knew why they were moving channels around. I noticed today more on 61.5 that were on 77 yesterday.

    I like Dish PQ. I love the channel offerings. The diginets. It's overall better than Direct TV. Sure they don't offer as much in HD. But their SD isn't that bad. So it's fine with me.

    No changes 77 to 61.5 this month. Channels have been moving between 72.7 and 61.5 (as noted in this thread). The last swap was August 17th.

    (There are some moves each day for sports channels in MLB and other game only channels.)

    I'm hoping that one of these days, DISH Network would carry the Pac-12 's regional nets (Oregon, Washington, Bay Area, Los Angeles, Arizona, Rocky Mountains).

    I watched the NM Lobos college football last year when Dish offered it to me at half price. It's too much for me to add for full cost. Maybe they have plans to add those later?

    Thank you James, this says a lot to me at least from you who has the knowledge to say so, as I mentioned in previous post you do a great job updating Channel Mapping (I really appreciate this because if it wasn't for the time you take posting these changes (updates) we didn't event know what was going on, all other websites are very outdated.......

    I will guess based upon these facts:

    1.- Massive movement from orbital slot 72.7° (Nimiq 5 @ 72.67°) to orbital slot 61.5° (Echostar XV @ 61.64° & XVI @ 61.49°) and to orbital slot 77° (Quetzsat 1 @ 76.97°).
    2.- Your thought and I quote: "DISH does not seem to be adding enough channels to need more space" (hopefully someone here has some more info in this regard).
    3.- CONUS Beams that carried HD channels @ 72.7° are not carrying channels at the moment unless some Locals from Spot Beams @ 129° (Ciel 2 @ 128.81°) to CONUS Beam @ 72.7 ° (let's see what changes come next?).

    If they start to move some locals (Spot Beams to CONUS) seems a bird might have some power issues (my best guess) I might be wrong but all the moves have to be for a reason, and if that reason isn't to offer more HD or 4K content, I can't find other reasonable factor for all these changes, unless someone else steps in and shares other factor? now to find out what bird? very difficult to know Satellite Failure web sites are very outdated. The next days we might have more information to make a final conclusion....

    Regards.

    Note: The following are in the path of the hurricane. I would not consider them to be permanent locations.
    (AVAILABLE Limited means they are not in the specific "test" group but are in a special test group available only to a limited group of equipment - probably employees or engineers testing the feeds.)

    Okay, so here is another thought. Dish could sub-lease those transponders at 72.7 to Bell, and Echostar could come out with a new version of the Dish 1000 that can receive 72.7/82/91 perhaps calling it a 1000.c (for Canada)

    I lived in Canada when the Nimiq satellite was launched to 72.7. It was supposed to be used by Bell TV (then called ExpressVU) to provide a much anticipated increase in the number of HD channels for their Canadian customers. Shortly after the bird arrived at its assigned orbital location, Bell TV announced that it decided to lease it to Dish TV in the U.S. and there would be no new channels. It might be that the lease has expired and the the use of the bird has reverted to Bell TV. Although this is a plausible explanation, my brother in Canada says his does not put much credence in it because Bell is now emphasising using fiber optic to supply TV to its customers in towns and cities where the vast majority of Canadians live while de-emphasizing the use of satellite for the sparsely populated rural areas. Just a thought.....

    Looks like the moves have to do with new 4K channels (I can't confirm), I just checked other DBS web site seems Dish is adding at the moment some channels at transponder 3 (72.7°) with 4K seems their using HEVC (High Efficiency Video Code or H.265 (Hopper 3).....if this is true they're compressing at the moment 8 4K channels per transponder......

    you are judging by secondary aspects, but must begin from primary: [video] PID allocated bandwidth of each service/channel
    without the knowledge your numbers [8x4K/tpn] are useless :(

    Echostar/Dish has a lease for the lifetime of the Nimiq 5 satellite, which is expected to be 15 years. Here is the footnote from the latest 10-Q for Echostar, filed on August 9 of this year, Echostar sublets the bird to Dish.

    "Nimiq 5 Agreement. In September 2009, we entered into a fifteen-year satellite service agreement with Telesat Canada (“Telesat”) to receive service on all 32 DBS transponders on the Nimiq 5 satellite at the 72.7 degree west longitude orbital location (the “Telesat Transponder Agreement”). In September 2009, we also entered into a satellite service agreement (the “DISH Nimiq 5 Agreement”) with DISH Network, pursuant to which DISH Network receives satellite services from us on all 32 of the DBS transponders covered by the Telesat Transponder Agreement.
    Under the terms of the DISH Nimiq 5 Agreement, DISH Network makes certain monthly payments to us that commenced in September 2009, when the Nimiq 5 satellite was placed into service, and continue through the service term. Unless earlier terminated under the terms and conditions of the DISH Nimiq 5 Agreement, the service term will expire in October 2019. Upon expiration of the initial term, DISH Network has the option to renew the DISH Nimiq 5 Agreement on a year-to-year basis through the end of life of the Nimiq 5 satellite. Upon in-orbit failure or end of life of the Nimiq 5 satellite, and in certain other circumstances, DISH Network has certain rights to receive service from us on a replacement satellite. There can be no assurance that any options to renew the DISH Nimiq 5 Agreement will be exercised or that DISH Network will exercise its option to receive service on a replacement satellite."
