View Full Version : HD Channel Back Up!!

Just checked and 286 is back and running. No 287 tonight - at least not yet. CSI is on then ER.

Hopefully the temporary glitch means more HD channels on the way soon.

Well if there back up and it appears others are back as well, perhaps the fixed the problemwith the transponders. If they where still having problems with the transponders we wouldn't have HD, or he other channels. So maybe just maybe they found out what caused the problem, fixed, and everything might be normal again. I sur hope so. I don't feel like waiting another 3-4 years to get a replacemen built and in service to replace N2. But if this the case, they should build 2 at the sametime send them up rplace N1 & 2. That ay they have 2 BRAND NEW SATS

As of Friday afternoon, 5 BEV HD channels are showing up in the Program Guide and the standard two HD channels are up and running.

Ken ,
where exactly are these 5 channels?

286 - Network HDTV*
287 - Network HDTV
291 - PPV channel
296 - PPV channel (same as 291, but with french dubbing)

285 (TMN) appears not to be shown in the guide.

*286 also appears in SDTV on channel 299 (which has temporarily disappeared from the guide due to Nimiq2 technical problems; there is a thread about it in the "Television Channels" forum).

There are two HDTV channels activated at any time (for now). That means 291/296 is not available when 287 is on the air.
