Holiday music 2016

I was looking ahead on the guide last week and noticed that Holidays & Happenings on channel 801 was starting on Nov 26.   I dont know why, but a few days later, i checked again, and now it was starting on Nov 28. So every day i have been checking. Yesterday it was Dec 1...i actually chatted with a rep at directv who said it was starting on Dec 1.  Well today, the guide says it is  starting on Dec 2! Weird. It usually starts in Nov, after Thanksging I think. Any body know what is going on?   ( i do not get channel 815).   Thanks.

I can find NOTHING on the directv.com site that lists the Christmas music channels. You used to list them for SiriusXM, allowing the user to pick a genre that reflected individual taste. I'm not talking about 814 Country Music that plays maybe one Christmas song a day, but channels dedicated to holiday music (like Pandora, SiriusXM, et al). I've got a HR23/700 receiver, so surely I should be able to get the channels. But what are they?

if your HDDVR is connected to the internet you can create a Christmas playlist on Pandora

Yes, that's what I'm going to do. Looking at unbundling SonicTap from my subscription and saving some $$ if I can, as the service pales in comparison to Pandora or SiriusXM.

Sonic Tap channels are included as part of your subscription.  You cannot remove them.

I think Ch801 is all Christmas music right now.  I'll have to go check.

Hello @af,

 

We are sorry for your inconvenience.  Our records indicate holiday music should now be playing as indicated below:

Nov 14, 2016 – Jan 8, 2017: Holiday & Happenings programming replaces Big Band Swing on Channel 801.

 

Try refreshing your service.  It’s a simple process; follow this link to learn more.  You can also try resetting your receiver. 

 

If neither option helps, please let us know so we can investigate further.  Thank you.

Channel 801 is not currently playing holiday music. I switched over a few times. And the guide still says Big Band, even after a reset. Thanks.

DIrect TV has moved the channel to 815...it will cost you an additional $10 a month to listen. Just got off the phone with DIrect TV. Very disappointed in the Scrooge move...
