either that could happen, or 769 will just switch between League Pass and Center Ice when necessary (depends on how many NBA and NHL games are being played on any given night)
 
Does that mean NHLCI will start on 770 going forward? Thanks
It was repurposed for an extra League Pass channel because everyone except the Pistons and Knicks had a game yesterday. It's back to NHL Center Ice today for the Red Wings feed of tomorrow's Red Wings @ Bruins game. The next time they'll likely need it again for League Pass is on January 5th.

385 H&I is in test mode, taking up the slot that used to have MGMHD. If it's anything like the MeTV deal, it will be blacked out in markets that get it as a LIL channel like Los Angeles (KVME/20), Seattle (KVOS/12), San Francisco (KTLN/68) and Alexandria (KBCA/41).

SD LIL Removal INFO channels have been added to Boston, Charlotte, Cleveland, Denver, Memphis, Paducah, Pittsburgh and Sacramento. (Greensboro, Miami, Nashville, Philly, Portland OR, Raleigh, Richmond, Roanoke, Columbus OH, Indianapolis, Norfolk, Orlando, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, Tampa and Zanesville also have INFO channels)

LILs in test:
WPHL-D2/18 (MNT) for the Philly DMA (the rest of the day it's Antenna TV)
WSAV-D3/30 (MNT) for the Savannah DMA (the rest of the day it's CourtTV)
WTVK/59 for the Chicago DMA (the Peoria version has been removed)
KTVC/36 for the Eugene DMA
KIFR/49 for the Fresno DMA
KBLN/30 for the Medford DMA
KSQA/22 for the Topeka DMA

98/111 IACHD has returned

The rest of the BTN alternates have been removed for the season

9755 DEAL (Showtime for $1.99) and 9756 DTV (Jazz Info) have been removed

The reshuffles that were testing for the past few weeks to clear out D12 TPN 14 and D11 TPN 4 are now live.
 
I noticed tonight as I was testing some software changes that new Guide INFO items are up for individual channels in Columbus OH, Indianapolis, Norfolk, Orlando, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, Tampa and Zanesville that say:

"Act Fast! You will lose your local channels soon! Call 855-930-1640 today to schedule your technician appointment for a no cost equipment replacement!"
