    Hi I was just scrolling through the guide and I'm getting CBS College Sports Network now (channel 613) but I don't have Sports Pack. None of the other Sports Pack channels are coming in either. Did it move packages or is there like a free preview of it going on?

    I don't subscribe to any sports packs but I've always gotten CBS College Sports in HD.

    What package do you subscribe to? Even though you don't subscribe to the Sports Pack it is included in the Premier package.

    I believe you would get it with the old Total Choice Plus package.:)

    Right, but I didn't quote TomCat (don't call him OP he hates that). I quoted Mystic and asked him what package he subscribed to as he stated he has always received the channel in question.

    The thing is, I checked the website, and that is not what the website indicates. Heck, the website can be wrong. I get the sports pack personally, so I can't tell...

    The website does not list the channels in Total Choice Plus, unless you jump in your Delorean, set the date for 2005, and drive it at 88 mph.:lol:

    Sorry, you are right. I just assumed you typed the Choice Extra package!

    Bingo. Just read another article that said NHL Network is offering a free preview. That's another channel I get already.

    NHLN is on Choice Xtra so the only people getting it free are Choice customers(or Family Pack, does anyone actually have that though?)

    I have the Plus HD DVR pack and I'm getting it!

    They're talking about National Signing Day for college football players as of 1:51 PM CST.

    Delray...
    I have Choice Plus and have always gotten CBS Sports HD without the sports pack. Are your local RSN's off too?

    So as Tom has said, I also now get CBS Sports Channel and did not before.:grin: I remember when I signed up for D* in Aug '08 I got CBS Sports, then it was taken away and put into the sports tier. Now I have it again. So there is something going on.
