With the distant nets available to rv'ers has there been any indication as to the location (channel #s) and sats & whether or not they are now live.
The channel numbers remain the same as previously reported (9950-9958) ... and as "available" as they have been since April 20th.

Eastern Arc (April 20th):
9950 WABC 72.7° TP 32 (HD Hidden) - AVAILABLE
9951 WCBS 72.7° TP 32 (HD Hidden) - AVAILABLE
9952 WNBC 72.7° TP 32 (HD Hidden) - AVAILABLE
9953 WNYW 72.7° TP 32 (HD Hidden) - AVAILABLE
9954 KABC 72.7° TP 22 (SD MPEG4 Hidden) - AVAILABLE
9955 KCBS 72.7° TP 22 (SD MPEG4 Hidden) - AVAILABLE
9956 KNBC 72.7° TP 22 (SD MPEG4 Hidden) - AVAILABLE
9957 KTTV 72.7° TP 22 (SD MPEG4 Hidden) - AVAILABLE
9958 PBS PBS National Feed 72.7° TP 5 (SD MPEG4 Hidden) - AVAILABLE

Western Arc (March 2nd):
9950 WABC added to 119° TP 20 (SD Hidden) AVAILABLE
9951 WCBS added to 119° TP 20 (SD Hidden) AVAILABLE
9952 WNBC added to 119° TP 20 (SD Hidden) AVAILABLE
9953 WNYW added to 119° TP 20 (SD Hidden) AVAILABLE
9954 KABC added to 110° TP 17 (HD Hidden) AVAILABLE
9955 KCBS added to 110° TP 17 (HD Hidden) AVAILABLE
9956 KNBC added to 110° TP 17 (HD Hidden) AVAILABLE
9957 KTTV added to 110° TP 17 (HD Hidden) AVAILABLE
9958 PBS PBS National Feed added to 119° TP 8 (SD Hidden) AVAILABLE

Note the difference between which channels are HD and SD on each arc.

As usual, "available" means no longer in the special "engineering test" group of channels. Such a designation does NOT mean any subscriber has actually had the channel activated on their account. "Available" is the final step beyond testing.

(Hidden refers to channels that are not in the guide except for subscribers to that channel.)

If there are any changes they will, of course, be reported.

...as to why I no longer can get History HD, Discovery HD, TBS HD, and a few others. I'm on 61.5/110/119 because of no LOS for 129 and it looks like they moved those off 61.5 and onto 129. *sigh*. Guess it's time to give them a call and try to get on the Eastern Arc so I can view all these HD channels I'm paying for. :mad:

Actually - they moved (Eastern arc) from 61.5 to 72.7.

This is a prime case of WHY Dish wants everyone on a complete arc .

Well if they are so intent on getting everyone on a "complete arc", then why haven`t they been bugging me to get switched over? ijs... as a customer for over 8 years, this is kind of annoying. Can`t wait until they get Uverse in my neighborhood.

I had lots of problems with U-verse. Such as no TV from 4AM to 5PM on a Saturday. You have to be close to a VRAM on the pole. If I were you I'd think twice.

Put a DP twin on your wing dish that is looking at 61.5 and you can get both 61.5 and 72.7, giving you 61.5, 72.7, 110 and 119 - all the channels will work.

Have lots of friends who have UVerse and love it with no problems... plus my wife works for ATT so we'd get a discount :).

Don't get me wrong, I like Dish since I've had them. It just would be nice not to have to worry about such things as line of site and if my trees are in the way, losing signal during storms and now, having to deal with them switching the satellites the different channels are on and having to deal with them sending someone out who may or may not agree to put my on the Eastern Arc.

I wish it was that easy. Except when they took me off 129 and onto 61.5, they just used on of those old round dishes as the second dish...

They probably have you in their system as switched over already ... PM a DishIRT member and they can check for you - and help you get upgraded.

Thanks. I did a search and found MattG who I just chatted with to set up a time for a tech to come out and switch me over. Turns out they still had me set up as full Western Arc in their system, so that's why I wasn't contacted by them...and since the changes are ones they made and were beyond my control, it won't cost me anything to get switched over.

You will find Matt very helpful. Helped me out many times. Much better response than ringing up DISH and asking for help.

I'm glad you got help:) I dropped Dish to go to go to Uverse, twice and both times it didn't worked out.

You should have stayed with DISH rather then using another TV service. I do not know what Uverse is. I am guessing this is a new satellite TV service.
