    Standard Definition Drops for Aug 15th
    G1 HD channels highlighted in Yellow - unavailable to some.
    Pale yellow highlight indicates no HD version available - channel lost to all.

    Next week, Sep 4th
    Daystar and Family West convert to HD - on an F bird

    Sep 18th, sees 8 HD conversions - all on an F bird
    SRC Trois Riviere
    CBC Charlottetown
    CTV Saskatoon
    CTV Kitchener
    History West
    YTV West
    W West
    Teletoon West

    Sometime between Sep 23rd and 25th sees 18 HD signals move from G1 to F2 including
    CBC News Network
    CTV News Channel
    TCM
    Bravo
    Discovery
    Comedy
    W Network
    Family East and
    a selection of locals from across the country
    as well a few French specialities: ARTV, RDI, Addik, Le Canal Nouvelles and Teletoon French


    And then Sep 25th
    The final block of Std Def duplicate signals drop

    CNBC HD a while ago was mentioned as a maybe for 2019 but there has been no word yet. Daystar was a late HD addition so there may be hope for CNBC.

    2020 - the rest of the few std def channels?

    Henry - Permanently for now - how is that for being sure. I don't whether they are moving these channels to balance load on the three birds or if it's an silent acknowledgement of southern subscribers. In any case I would think they are there for the foreseeable future.

    The following channels flip from Std Def to HD today. All on F1R.
    The HD version takes the number of the Std Def version if you are still on Classic or Advanced.

    I assume you got changed to the new national numbering sequence. I expect by Wednesday it will come back in HD once they finish moving signals between satellites. Worst case scenario is Oct 16th but hopefully they will update the channel maps to the new location between the 23rd and 25th of September

    The following channel signals were dropped in Standard Definition today. The HD version can be found on the following channel numbers.
    Anything highlighted in pink is on G1 and unavailable in more southern locations. From another forum the signals that have moved to F2 have been mapped into the Classic, Advanced and National channel numbering sequences.
