    SiriusXM 153 finally gets new format

    I guess this is a Spanish language political format? Interesting that there is no announcement of this by SXM directly.

    Lafayette, IN to get NBC/FOX affiliate Presumably NBC and FOX will each be carried on subchannels of the new WPBI-LD TV. This will leave them with ABC, CW, and PBS from out of market. Seems like it might be more of a syndex...

    Sling Orange adding E!, FX, and USA?

    So, this email I got yesterday says Sling Orange has been "freshly upgraded" to include FX and E!, and the above paragraph mentions watching Mr. Robot (USA). But the text also says Orange would be $25/month.

    Broadcast Extra (ABC, Univision, UniMas) now available in select DMAs for $5/mo

    Hmm, saw this on SlingTV's website today: Seems to be limited to ABC O&O markets, but nice that they're offering it. And I'm glad it's not part of the basic package.

    New channel "Local Now"?

    Noticed a new channel called Local Now today. Seems like a combination of The Weather Channel, AP News Updates, and sports scores/schedules. I think it would be nice to watch for a few minutes when getting ready in the morning. Is this a sign that The Weather Channel is on the way? I will say...

    SiriusXM adds France 24 audio simulcast

    Seems kind of random (no press release, no mention of it by either side), and apparently only available online or in the SXM app. I guess this might be good for listening in the car since SXM doesn't count toward my data plan. I wonder if maybe France 24...

    And the new Qualified Entity channel goes to... Entity selected in response to January 15, 2015 Request for Proposals: "Sports Leadership and Management Charter School (SLAM)" (According to the PDF they only published the selection of this school to receive a QE channel in December 2015 so this isn't...

    Roku SE for $25 on Black Friday (and the following weekend?) The Roku SE appears to be a rebadged Roku 1 that ships with Roku OS 7 already installed. Not top of the line, but if you have a bedroom or kids' room TV and want to put a streaming box on it, this is a good choice. It has analog outputs so should...

    ABC Family to change name to "#Freeform"

    I'm not convinced that this is a great idea, but I look forward to Pat Robertson and his friends at the 700 Club complaining about it. ;)

    EastEnders - BBC & Dish "new distribution model"? I haven't seen anything about this on SatGuys, so I thought I'd share. The picture is from this Facebook Page: It appears that EE is off Dish temporarily while they "finalize a...

    WNDY-TV adds simulcast of WISH-TV main channel

    I'm happy to report that WISH TV 8.1 is now simulcast on sister WNDY 23.3. This restores coverage of the CW network to much of the area that previously received it from WTTK 29.1 prior to the affiliation change on 1/1/15. The 23.3 signal seems to be 16:9 but likely SD. This also restores local...

    Switch from Latino Welcome to English Welcome?

    Does the English Welcome Pack include locals? Can they be opted out of, or are they required? What does this package cost? And, can a DIRT team member assist me in making this change on my account? Doesn't look like I can do it online.

    New Lineup April 25?

    WRN has reported they'll be leaving SXM on 4/25. Pop2K is expanding to be heard on Sirius starting 4/25. And, the CRTC has mandated changes in the Canadian lineup beginning in May, which I'm guessing will also be rolled into the 4/25 changes, if SXM has much of a clue. Here's my best guess of...

All changes are effective May 1, 2008 according to the letter, which I will post in the next day or two. I think it's notable that at the very...

    His Kids Radio offering Wi-Fi "Family Radio"

    I know that many people enjoy the variety of Christian Radio available on Sky Angel, and for those who are looking for an alternative to SA-IPTV, perhaps for a second room where you don't need to have video, but would like to hear family-friendly and Christian radio stations - there is a product...

    Comcast Kokomo / Lafayette Channel Adds?

    I saw a cable-inserted commercial here on the Insight>Comcast system in Kokomo, advertising an event that would be on the Golf Channel in January. It advertised the Golf Channel being on channel 71. Currently, it's only on Digital Cable channel 558. Therefore, I speculate that Comcast may be...

    $5 Shipping on Pub Membership?

    I have been a member here at SatelliteGuys for a while, and I started to realize how much information I have learned here first, before it was on any other site. So... I tried to purchase a Pub Membership ($19.99/year) earlier today, but PayPal automatically added a $5 shipping charge. Does...

    Cheap Antenna Extension Cord?

    Where in the world can I find a cheaply priced extension cable for satellite radio antennas? My bedroom is on the north side of my house, yet I have satellite radio (XM and Sirius) antennas mounted on the south side for optimal reception. (The Sirius antenna, even after trying many positions...
