Its gone. All my 70's channels went away. They all reappear on higher channel numbers except for 78, HDNET movies. That was a great channel, movies all the time. What happened?

Oh, its not an "extra pack" issue. I have that and get UHD fine.

All the channels that appeared in the 70's are still available but they are now listed elsewhere in the guide. The channels in the 70's were part of the initial HD launch for DirecTV years ago and have been in the process of being phased out the last year or so.

Must of been a while since you watched anything on 78.

They have been running banners for months announcing the move.
