|BrystonUser||Any idea if/when Eastlink will offer a 4K receiver so we can get the TSN, Sportsnet, etc. 4K channels?|

New Channel: Toon-A-Vision launched June 19 on HD 749, Free Preview Until July 24, 2019. See related thread for discussion of this new children's animation channel.

|felix1522||Anybody else in the West region notice that MTV is back on the guide at 875? Better question, can/does anyone subscribe to it?|

|David1953||Good find there, jdh79, and they're in HD as well. In fact, there seem to be overall a much higher number of channels in the time shift package than I remember previously.|

It appears that Eastlink added several new CTV channels to the time shift package that I am 90% sure were not there last weekend.
503 - CKCK CTV Regina
504 - CTV Winnipeg
505 - CTV Montreal
506 - CTV Calgary
This is in addition to CTV Halifax, Toronto and Vancouver that I already had.
I am assuming this might have something to do with NFL games and how CTV is trying to spread the schedule out across their various channels now that there is no cable Sunday ticket?

Is everyone still searching for their channels' new locations?
Just curious, EL in Alberta doesn't change their line-up until December 8th. Are Disney Jr and XD on hold there until then since 765 and 766 were already being used?
|2015-12-03 10:28 AM|
|David1953||Disney Junior HD is on channel 765, and Disney XD HD is on channel 766. Both are in the clear for now.|
|2015-12-02 10:56 PM|
Actually, according to their FB CSR, it is supposed to be tomorrow.
At least it's two channels that are NOT in new channel positions.

|jimbo42||we were suppose to get Disney xd & Disney jr HD channels but there's still no sign of them anywhere. Eastlink was scheduled to have them up on Dec 1st. very odd.|

Smallmj, I thought afterwards that they may leave the SD versions alone (channels 1-399) but just duplicate the channels into the HD ones so customers that watch both don't have to jump everywhere to get the content. Don't know for sure though. The change happens in about 2.5 weeks for Ontario and I'll be checking with friends I have in Timmins to find out what exactly happened.
As for the Stingray channels, I think it is supposed to be 900-999 and the document has a typo. But I don't see them have 100 stingray channels but you never know. SaskTel has 99 or 100 of them.
Did anyone else notice "Teletoon Retro" is listed but not the "Disney Channel"? Also, Nickelodeon is referred to as Nick Jr.

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.

Good find there, denben73, and you're even more up to date with what's going on at Eastlink than I am, lol.
I also noticed that Eastlink will be using channel numbers over 1000, for French and Ethnic channels.

|smallmj||My read of the document is that they are leaving SD channel numbers alone. I can't imagine them dropping all of the SD/HD duplication unless they stopped charging extra for HD.|

Channel re-alignment coming.
Found out this AM that EL will be rearranging channels across their systems this fall. It's linked from their main page on their site.
Starting in Ontario in November and ending in BC in early December.
A few things I observed...

You beat me to it, Eastcoast gal, and it is now on the guide on channel 725 in Halifax as well.
It's great to see that Eastlink is adding it on the first day.
