While flipping through some channels in the upper range, I discovered that Channel 9533, which is usually only shown on airplanes, now is live with the ABC News streaming feed as well as East Coast ABC programming. I know we don't need yet another news channel but I wonder if eventually DirecTV is planning to also add the streaming news feeds of the other networks in this channel range (9531 - CBS, 9532 - NBC, and 9534 - Fox).

As I said, these channels are usually only shown on DirecTV airplane feeds.

I'm getting it too. It's probably just a glitch in the authorization stream. General Hospital is on now. That would violate the congressional ban on distant nets if it was offered to home subs.

I agree that it probably is some type of glitch, although I've had it on for 4 days now.
I didn't notice it until I saw this thread. It's greyed out on my guide, so I had to punch the channel number in to get it.

You would get 9531-9534 if you live in NJ, NY, PA area which gets New York locals. (I.e. WCBS, WNBC, WNYW, WABC)

It isn’t exclusive to just airplanes. I can view them because I get those New York locals.

Forgot to mention in my previous post that most folks in CT also get New York locals like raoul (hence why you can view 9531-9534).

Raoul do you get New York locals?

What is interesting is that the one channel I get, 9533, is similar to the New York WABC but not exactly the same. When the local news comes on WABC, channel 9533 instead shows the national news that is on the ABC streaming network. Some other programs are different also. But the TV Guide on 9533 is identical to WABC, even though the programming often isn't. Very confusing.

ok, i just checked 9533 and turns out it's on but i think this might be a glitch that DirecTV system then and someone has to fix it, cause no one should be able to see this channel.
