Been a D* subscriber since '97 and for the first time I can remember for a major golf or tennis event, we're not getting the extra coverage in the 700s. The US Open this week typically has coverage for 5 additional courts the first week of the tournament but not this year. Can't believe it would be because of Covid?? You can get the extra coverage on the ESPN app that I access through my FireTV but a pain to switch inputs and when I switch back to the D* input, it stops the stream from the ESPN app. Anybody got a clue why D* stopped providing these extra channels? Or maybe this is a sign of the times with D* being on the auction block...

Its still showing as "To be announced" on my guide for those times ...

Its also showing the Channel as being ready for the NFL ST, as Red Zone and the Fantasy channels are listed, as they normally would be during the season.

Chudgins,
Did the Tennis show up at all ahead of time yet for this tournament and get changed ?

Yeah ....

As kyl416 explained on Edgecutter

"... The US versions (of the USO) are in the 900s this year because of overlap with the golf and NFL. The Kids Mix also went offline for the next 2 weeks since they are repurposing it for the US Open."

I don’t know if they still are, but I remember when the 900’s were used for local channel.

Not in years and years and years. For a little while, the west coast feeds that are on -1 now like Comedy Central west were in the 900s before making it to their -1 homes after the east coast feeds.
