There are some new channels on Directv...

ch 322 NHK World News... (SD only, a English-language Japanese channel)
ch 343 i24News HD... channel 343 (it's an app like Cheddar and iHeartRadio, if your Internet isn't good, it won't be HD)
ch 1920 Limetime Movie Club... channel 1920 (subscription on-demand service, probably HD but I am not subscribing to confirm!)
ch 2049 NHK World News... (it appears to be the same exact thing as 322, you'd think it'd be in Japanese in this channel range, maybe it will change at some point.)

I can view all except 1920 with Xtra.

Also, the 119-only channels that were mirrored on reverse band are now mirrored on 103 so the channels that you were missing from only having a SL3 (like 408, 461, 2119) should work now so it's like you have more new channels if you only have a regular SL3.

Correction: 322 is called just "NHK World Japan" not ...News, my bad. It is more than news.

I was able to tune in 1920 and download/view a program. I have the ultimate programming package,

They were all greyed out earlier but now, I am also able to download and watch stuff on 1920. This service is supposed to be a premium, maybe it's a preview. I guess I will edit the first post.

I guess I can't edit the first post anymore. Maybe a mod will be nice and turn it on for me on the first post of the thread so it is accurate?

This is different from Lifetime channel ?
I am not familiar enough with the programming on Lifetime and LMN to know if it is different than that. I would assume it is since it is supposed to be a subscription service. Maybe this is their version of Disney+ and the like? Just looking quickly, I do not see the content on 1920 on the other Lifetime channels in the guide cycle.

Update: There is now a banner in the guide for Lifetime Movie Club. It states that there are new and classic Lifetime Movies.

Can we get some new channels that people watch?
Or don't have to pay extra for?:thumbdown
I agree to that so many channels they could be adding they are in HD of channels that U-Verse has that DirecTV doesn’t have they could put them on DrecTV since they are phasing out U-Verse and they have the space you go it

NHK World Japan is a great channel. Tons of educational and informative programs. I watch it daily. It's one of my favorite channels.

Some PBS stations have a NHK channel as a subchannel. Do you know if this NHK World that we have now is the same one?

Yes, I'm pretty sure it's the same channel. You can also stream it free on your computer or Roku, Fire Stick, etc.

Cheddar and i24 are both free channels available on Roku. Most likely they are paying DTV to pay for the placement. They appear to not be satellite channels , but are available via the Internet.
