Looks like the new HD is only going to be available to pure WA and EA customers. Folks with the pseduo WA/EA setup of 110/119/61.5 are not going to get some of these channels. Of course this could change at the time of launch.... but I doubt it.

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.

BTW, in case some are wondering what this uplink changes - the answer is that they rebalanced the transponders to have more equal bitrate per transponder.

For example, HD sports takes more bandwidth than HD talking heads...

Which brings up a question - how long after a new channel is "made available", does it become active in "Dish Remote Access" ?

Do channels have to be added manually by Dish to that guide list ?

I live in Albany NY and have the 119 110 and 61.5 and have 2 dishes what will I need to get the new channels?? What is the cost of the equipment?

If your 61.5 dish can be pointed at 129 (in other words, no trees or buildings in the way) then you would not need any new equipment - which also assumes that your local channels are not on 61.5 .

Otherwise, you would need a "Dish 1000.4" instead of your existing equipment.

The cost depends on whether Dish is willing to pay for new equipment for you to get the channels you are paying for. In the past, they have generally done so, but such things vary depending on which phone rep you get... which reminds me that no phone rep will be able to deal with anything in this thread until Thursday or Friday, so do not call until then.

Interesting. This will be the first channels added since the Sling app.

I would think as soon as the day of and no later than the day after.
