Synopsis updated 7/31/2008 - Orbit Location (TLE) dated 7/30/2008

Status of the DirecTV-11 (D11) Satellite:
  • D11 is parked and "live".
  • On 7/31/2008, the 9 legacy HD channels are MPEG4 (Ka) on D11:
    • 206/73 - ESPN HD MPEG4(Ka)/MPEG2(Ku) 720p
    • 209/72 - ESPN2 HD MPEG4(Ka)/MPEG2(Ku) 720p
    • 245/75 - TNT HD MPEG4(Ka)/MPEG2(Ku) 1080i
    • 259/74 - Universal HD MPEG4(Ka)/MPEG2(Ku) 1080i
    • 281/76 - HD Theater (was Discovery HD Theater) MPEG4(Ka)/MPEG2(Ku) 1080i
    • 306/79 - HDNet MPEG4(Ka)/MPEG2(Ku) 1080i
    • 501/70 - HBO East HD MPEG4(Ka)/MPEG2(Ku) 1080i
    • 537/71 - Showtime East HD MPEG4(Ka)/MPEG2(Ku) 1080i
    • 552/78 - HDNet Movies (a,u) MPEG4(Ka)/MPEG2(Ku) 1080i
  • On 8/14/2008, expecting that there will be 35 new HD channels. Informed analysis seems to indicate 12 new full-time RSN's, 6 new HD PPV, and 17 new national HD including Showtime Extreme HD, Showtime Showcase HD, Planet Green HD, and ABC Family HD.
So is TNT-HD on channel 245 MPEG-4 or MPEG-2?

Well, he was doing the list at 3:00 AM California time, so I'm willing to give him a break! And maybe he's sleeping now and hasn't had a chance to update it.

Yes, somehow TNT dropped out of one of the lists I posted. Great catch!
