    You don't mean the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation on Channel 673 (this might only be in those markets near the Canadian border, eh?)?

    Most likely CBC Egypt. It is in the Arabic channel range.

    Shouldn't they uplink the placemarker on the deleted transponder? I can say that we have 18 8PSK transponders total on the EchoStar 10 satellite.

    A deleted transponder does not need a placemarker.Placemarkers (as you call them) are normally placed on empty transponders due to a problem with old equipment that expected to see at least one channel per transponder. Once the transponder is deleted there is no need for the fake channel.

    James - does this make 14 different HD channels on 129 TP 24? Or are some of those duplicates of the same channel so there really isn't 14 different HD channels...

    It looks like 14 unique channels to me.

    Maybe it should increase the bandwidth from 2/3 FEC to 3/4 FEC or 5/6 FEC for 8PSK transponders with 14 HD channels.

    Wow! I would have never thought we would see a transponder with 14 unique HD channels. I remember just a couple of years ago that 8 HD channels were the max and Western Arc running out of space.

    8 HD channels or a few were limited for spotbeams (except national cable networks for PR, AK, and HI).

    The examples were (each TID is represented on satellites and transponders):
    2371 - ABC (WFAA), CBS (KTVT), NBC (KXAS), Fox (KDFW), CW (KDAF), MYTV (KDFI), PBS (KERA), Telemundo (KXTX)
    1353 / 2384 - ABC (KTRK), CBS (KHOU), NBC (KPRC), Fox (KRIV), CW (KIAH), MYTV (KTXH), PBS (KUHT), Telemundo (KTMD)

    Three years ago eight was typical and nine was "full". The RSN eights were really nines because of the slate used when the game ends. The PPV channels were the first to go 10 to a transponder. DISH must have improved compression formats to be able to do 14 PPVs on one transponder. Not being "live" channels (they are playing movies from storage) they do not have to do compression on the fly.

    I remember when they had two MPEG2 HD channels on a QPSK transponder. MPEG4 and better encoding and 8PSK transponders help make room for more channels.

    (It has only been a couple of years since DISH had 14 MPEG2 SD channels on a QPSK transponder. Knowing that they continue to get better encoders I am not worried about 14 HD PPVs.)

    Newsy is coming to Dish? Telemundo Alaska (KDMD DT2) was launched in HD for the 2018 FIFA World Cup fans?

    Newsy to Launch as Cable TV Channel After E.W. Scripps Buys RLTV Contracts

    As traditional TV players keep hunting for new digital inroads, E.W. Scripps’ online news network Newsy is going the other way — it’s landing a spot on the cable TV dial.

    E.W. Scripps has acquired carriage contracts from the Retirement Living Television (RLTV) cable network, covering about 26 million U.S. homes. RLTV will shut down this fall, to be replaced by Newsy’s 24-hour linear feed, with a mix of news and talk-show programming aimed at millennials.

    Newsy’s flip to pay TV is not like Vice Media’s launch of Viceland, which involved a brand-new slate of programming. (Viceland took over the slots occupied by A+E Networks’ H2.) The Newsy cable-news network will comprise the same programming feed it already distributes on other over-the-top platforms, and through YouTube TV and Dish Network’s Sling TV.

    Not everyone watches for the pixel count. Heck much of their target audience gets their news via clips on a 5 inch screen held in portrait mode during their mass transit commute where many apps default to 480p or lower on mobile connections to save data.

    They do have a HD feed available, but as a newcomer, not all providers carry it. Especially leftovers from the RLTV days where they were usually paying to be on lineups like an infomercial/shopping channel.

    I get BBC World in SD and it is fine. HD is better, but just because a channel is not available in HD doesn't mean it is not worth watching.
