To make the Guide smaller, they do not show channels from other packages, so people who are not Dish Latino subs do not have 5300s in their guide.
Yes, DL does not include all the Discovery channels, but many Discovery programs rotate through most of the channels. For example, some of the Science-HD programs have later shown on Discovery-HD channel.
Discovery, Animal Planet, TLC, HD Theater and National Geographic are all included in HD.
As Randall mentioned, Spike is included at 5303 and the others you cited are indeed not included.
Again, everything from 5300-5405 is included, in HD.
WOW - PQ on BBCA-HD is insanely good. Actually, all of the new channels are super pretty. Is E* using some kind of new compression technology, or are these signals just especially high quality?
Can you see 129 from where you are? If so then it costs you (in terms of channels lost) absolutely nothing to do 110/119/129, regardless of whether you have a 61.5. But I'm probably not telling you anything you didn't already know.
Thats BELOW the movie channels Bob...
Movie channels start at 300, Sportman channel is at 285.
why was the new hd channels not put on 61.5 instead of 72,Most people that have 61.5 did so because 129 is to low to receive from their area. Mine included. Why didnt they put them on 119 or 110. And move the nonhd channels to 61.5 or 129. I feel like I am getting shafted. Does anyone know if this going to corrected at least 61.5 can get these channels. The only I get is SMC . Which I am not a sports fan. So I wont subs to it anyway.
Basically folks with 110/119 w/ 61.5 wing dishes will need to upgrade to 61/72/77(1000.4) or 110/119/129 (1000.2) setups to get these channels.
Why did they do this?
1. E-3 has had more failures in the past few months. They don't want to put up more HD then have to take it down. They have filed to move E-6 to E-3 incase of another failure at 61.5.
2. They have a bunch of room at 72.7 with the new Nimiq5 bird with more transponders on the way as DirecTV vacates them.
3. 129 has the room to support the channels for WA customers.
4. Why not just put it on 119? They had room before! Correct. They have room at 119, but this room is needed for the E-14 shuffle coming up when E-14 is in orbit. Plus E-14 actually requires more transponders for efficient beam utilization. This will come more into play during the 8PSK WA conversion.
So basically the E-3 life and E-14 shuffle probably forced their hand at this, and they figure most of the customers have LOS to either WA or EA.
Okay, I keep waiting for the 922 to come out so that I can upgrade and move over to the Eastern Arc -- These new channels are killing me!! Any idea when the 922 is coming to market? And can I just move my 110/119 over to 72/77?
Just thinking about watching Top Gear has me at half mast.
I dont see why they dont put them up in 61.5 too. Then if they have to take them down so be it. At least we would have them. Or least send out letters to the Customers before adding new hd to the 72.7. having the 110/119/61.5. Would have to upgrade the dish and offer a free upgrade. If they offered a free upgrade. I might be willing to stay for another 2yr committment. But I cant get these CSR to offer me an upgrade at all. See above post
I hope this helps you....

There seem to be some temporary Olympic channels:
550 Olympic 1
551 Olympic 2
552 Olympic 3
First thing you need to do is get transfered to the Technical Department . They are the only ones that can help you with satellite dish upgrades,and channel / satellite lists. Everyone else is clueless.I have tried calling four times to get upgraded to eastern arc.These CSR arent trained for new info. .
