Looking at the new arrangement, it looks better than the current mess. They've done a good job of grouping themes together. They are using the 500s and 800s in a much better way. It doesn't clearly say what they are doing with the 40 channels of Stingray audio, unless they are dropping 30 of them and putting the rest in the 990-999 range. That seems unlikely to me. They haven't put anything else in the 900's so I'm guessing the 900 range will be used for audio.
I guess they are trying to keep many of the channels in the same position so it doesn't confuse people. The main networks, sports, expensive movie packages all stay put. Many kids and lifestyle channels stay put too. Timeshifts are mostly their current numbers minus 100. Some channels are their current numbers plus 100.
I didn't notice it before, but there are a bunch of SD channels mixed in with this numbering scheme. I'm guessing all of the current SD channels will stay put, and the SD-only ones will just use 2 virtual channel numbers.
Most currently available signals are on this list. There is no adult stuff, no religious stuff. Some other channels are missing: CPAC English, beIN Sports, MovieTime, fyi, or CNN International.
