Connection speed and broadcast resolution

Is there a way to see your connection speed (Mbps) and/or broadcast resolution being transmitted? My TV Display button shows 4k but that's because it's up-scaled. I am viewing on my Sony 4k TV.

Long delays using Roku remote for DirecTV Stream

Takes forever for DirecTV Interface to respond after pressing buttons. This applies to all links. Guide, Watch Now, Library, etc.. Replaced batteries thinking that might be the issue, but it didn’t do anything.

Why do some channels show the same number?

NESN and NESN+ both have 628. There's also multiple MSG and MSG+ that are either 634 or 635. How is this practical? Why can't each channel have its own number? There isn't even a 629 on my guide so why isn't NESN+ 629? Baffled.
