Uplink reports catching changes can be tricky. I try to stay ahead of the changes to decipher what each byte change means and in most cases the reports agree.
The channel list ( http://uplink.jameslong.name/channels.html ) is probably the best summary of what "is" after the changes. It is created from the raw data each morning around 6:30am and has highlights for "free" and "preview" channels (yes, there is a difference) as well as "not available". It also shows channels as they are mapped down plus the "collapsible EPG" channels.
(The 1000+ channel list shows channels greater than 1000, including channels before being mapped down.)
It is a lot to keep track of ... which is why it is automated as much as possible.
(BTW: SD channel temporary previews are mostly done via EPG and not shown in the uplink reports.)
Thanks for the added info.
Tommy PM'd. Thanks.
Having this added to the packages is good news! This is a very enjoyable channel.
Thank you, Dish!
Velocity, then "HD Theater", was available to all HD subscribers until 2010 when it was moved up to the Platinum HD level (and put on channel 5710 in preview mode).
It is nice to see it going back to an all subscribers status. Perhaps at some point DISH will update their website to reflect the move?
Thanks! I haven't received a PM yet, can you try re-sending it please?
I am still waiting on an update for that . Hopefully will see something soon!
I watch it a lot now that its back on my guide.
I believe the information that Velocity was moving from BB is probably wrong. My original suspicion as I posted was that it's only available in HD, it would be unusual for Dish to move an HD only channel from a add on package to a regular package. Encore HD is an exception in the Top250 package.
What seems more likely is that AXS is no longer in the BB package. It is available in both SD and HD is in the regular package spot in HD, (channel 167) and no longer in HD in the BB package. More than likely soon the SD version will leave the BB package also. Makes sense, it's in with the music channels.
We did receive an official word about Velocity being removed from the BB package as of 5 PM ET on the 27th of March, but still no specific information. It's possible Velocity may go into SD also, but I haven't seen any updates on that. I'll send it over to our programming team though.
Thanks! Was there word about AXS before they moved out of the package, as it appears they have?
I have not seen an announcement but DISH has updated their website - AXS shows up in the channel lists for DISH America and all the AT level packages and is not listed on the BB@Home page. (The channel number is incorrect, but at least the channel is listed.)
No one should be losing AXS. The move out of BB@Home is a move back to "all packages" ... right where HD Net was when first introduced (although now available to SD subscribers).
What is the status of Velocity HD and AXS-Hd ? Which package are they in?
Velocity and AXS HD are available in all of our HD packages (120, 120+, 200, 250) Velocity on on Ch. 364, and AXS is on Ch. 167.
Tommy, I wanted to reply to you on the conversations location but I receive something called a PARSE ERROR. I could not sign in with new ID that I chose. I chose to have the user ID emailed to me.
That's perfectly fine. Once you get it, let me know if you can login. If you can, you can update it yourself from the 'My Profile' page.
