Again, I thank you all for your patience. As you can see from the above messages, DirecTV & Anime Network seem to be on the same page regarding feedback.

Please let me know if you get any more information or if somehow the channel magically comes back.

THANKS!

My understanding is that DTV has their Top Men working on it.

Top. Men.

Looks like stuff is beginning to happen. Channel 1889 is back, and as of this posting it is showing some content:

Under “Missed it? Watch now”

  • Amagi Brilliant Park 12
  • Golden Time 20

Under “Girl Power”

  • Novice Alchemist 12
  • Princess Principal 2
  • Spy Classroom 3 and 4

Under “Super Happy Fun Time”

  • Amagi Brilliant Park 10 and 12
  • Bibliophile Princess 1
  • Golden Time 20

Mixed results on the 3 links to individual shows from the main screen.

  • The link to Princess Principal 2 works, taking you to the options screen for that program.
  • The link to Hakumei and Mikochi takes you to the wrong program (Princess Principal). This may be because there is no H&M content currently available. Or not. We’ll know more if/when H&M content appears later in the day.
  • The Link to Spy Classroom takes you to the options scree.for episode 3 for that program. I don’t use those links, so I can’t say whether the link is working as intended. It is possible that it should’ve taken you to a list of the available chapters for that program.

Given the timestamps on Whaler’s and Snakes’ posts, it is possible that we may be in the midst of a data load now. If so, we may see more content as the day progresses. Or not, depending on how their processes work (as in, do individual episodes appear as they are uploaded, or do groups of eps appear once after the data transfer process from InDemand completes)…

I have not yet tried to view any of the currently available content, but will check the first few minutes of each for presence of intro and content and report.

Things are better. Not good, but better.

As always, thanks to all who make it happen.

I’m hoping that with tomorrow’s new content, it’ll help push through the rest.

Follow-up to post from 13:30: All content mentioned in that post was downloadable/viewable; all had intros/outros. No additional content was noted.

Now.

@Slowhand sez: “I’m hoping that with tomorrow’s new content, it’ll help push through the rest.”

I’m not privy to their test plan, so I don’t know what DTV/InDemand was actually trying to do today so I don’t know what (if any) success that might’ve had.today. I’d consider it a reasonable success if tomorrow’s scheduled content actually shows up tomorrow - it has been consistently late (showing up on Saturday or Sunday) back before it stopped showing up at all, Getting prior weeks’ content, IMO, could be considered gravy.

With that in mind, I would ask TAN to consider issuing us DTV users a limited-time complimentary subscription (guest pass?) to HIDIVE that would allow us to fill in all of those storyline gaps. Not requiring a credit card to access it would be highly preferable. I don’t think the normal trial subscription process would work for those of us who had already used it prior to the outage, and it really isn’t right to have to pay for content that we’d already paid for via our DTV subscription.

I’d appreciate an answer from the TAN higher-ups about this, even if it’s only to tell me to go pound sand. Thanks.

Since last posting, one program has appeared: The Eminence in Shadow #2 from the expected posting from Nov. 16 (today). Note that, per @Slowhand’s post there should’ve been a total of 13 programs received today/.

That means there are a total of nine programs presently available, spanning the expected postings from Oct. 26 (3), Nov. 2 (3), Nov. 9 (2) and Nov. 16(1).

Note also that all content that should’ve been received back on Oct. 19 (we didn’t get ANY of that) would be slated to be removed from our content list at 20:00 EST tonight.

Perhaps it is time to establish a “Spoilers For DirecTV Users Who Got Hosed Out Of TAN Content” to fill us in on the gaps in the storylines of the several series that were affected by this (one month and counting) outage…

Alright folks here’s the odd rundown:

Some episodes that have expired were received

Amagi 7, Food Wars 1, Golden Time 10, Shinepost 7, Kill Me Baby 13

And now for the regular run down:

10/19 nothing was ever received and has thus expired

10/26 Amagi 10, Princess Prin. Ch.2, Spy Classroom 3, all else missing

11/5 Bibliophile 1, Spy Classroom 4, Management/Alchemist 12, all else missing

11/9 Amagi 12, Golden time 20, all else missing

I think that’s what I saw with a quick double check this morning. I’ll make edits of other things popped up.

You have my thanks :snake:
