Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Below is a numerical representation of the current DirecTV channel lineup in the United States. Some channels have both east and west feeds, airing the same programming with a three-hour delay on the latter feed, creating a backup for those who missed their shows. The three-hour delay also represents the time zone difference between Eastern (UTC -5/-4) and Pacific (UTC -8/-7).

High definition

Most high-definition (HDTV) and foreign-language channels may require a certain satellite dish or set-top box. Additionally, the same channel number is listed for both the standard-definition (SD) channel and the high-definition (HD) channel, such as 202 for both CNN and CNN HD. DirecTV HD receivers can tune to each channel separately. This is required since programming may be different on the SD and HD versions of the channels; while at times the programming may be simulcast with the same programming on both SD and HD channels. Some channels will be listed as XXX-1, (regional sports networks and out of market sports packages on channels 616-617 and 636-799), of which some programs are not available in HD, so DirecTV only turns on the HD version during live games to save bandwidth. Older HD receivers will only receive the MPEG-2 HD programming on channels 70-79.

For a list of local channels available in high-definition, see List of DirecTV local channels with HD.

Special channels

In addition to the channels listed below, DirecTV occasionally uses temporary channels for various purposes, such as emergency updates (e.g. Hurricane Gustav and Hurricane Ike information on channel 363 in September 2008), channel announcements, and news of legislation that could affect subscribers. The News Mix channels (102 and 352) have special versions during special events such as the 2008 United States Presidential Election night coverage and during the Inauguration of Barack Obama. During the Olympic Games they are channels reserved for showing events, that may have been cut off by NBC Universal networks for time constraints.

Infomercial channels

Infomercial channels are rented on a leased access basis. Their positions may change frequently.
