I got the Email today from Directv. It stated my local SD channels will be gone in 2019. My locals are on 119 Sat. Are they saying the 119 Sat SD will be deleted? Or are SD signals on 101 also be deleted? How about DNS is that also be deleted? Will all the programs on 101 go to HD? I am trying to figure out if I have to get new receivers? I have a RV Account. Thanks anyone for your use full input. Gary

This has been going around for nearly two years. Directv is ending all SD programming.

All SD with Direct will go away next summer.

While Directv has announced that SD programming will cease, they have NOT announced what they are going to do, if anything, with that satellite and band. No one knows.

No "official" announcement abut the satellite...but what I've read is that after so many years, the thing has run (or will run) out of fuel to keep it where it is supposed to be and will burn up as it falls into the atmosphere.

FWIW

This is likely true (dying satellite) but the orbital slot is PRIME space so another satellite is already there waiting or will be replaced. AT&T "may" sell the slot but due to it's prime location I find that hard to believe. The question remains, what is the future of 101.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Don't forget that a replacement satellite that goes into that slot may not broadcast on the same band(s) that the current satellite does. That means that even if they replace that satellite with a new one, your current SD antenna may still not work.

Thanks for the information. Guess I have to look for replacement receiver, LNB and dish. Gary
