Note 1 : This is just the list I am personnally using for my WorldSpace listening, just shared here with you. This is not another reference. It just meets my needs.  In case of conflict, french issue takes precedence, although I try to update both simultaneously.

Note 2 : Major updates: New= SHG with indian sound.    Disappeared early April= CNNI, ORTM (they were supposed to go pay/encrypted), HANEEN (by 15/04). NPR and Caroline are back to Encrypted after one month free promotion in March.

Channels are listed here in the order they appear when I scan on the Sanyo.
Changes done since this issue will only appear in... next update. This is not a real time service.
New : An "under construction" more uptodate issue may be found  HERE
