    I received an e-mail tonight about OWN is scheduled to be launched in HD later this spring. It was said in a base package change that OWN will be in th CHOICE base package and above starting the week of April 1, 2013. Right now it's in the ENTERTAINMENT base package.

    Just click on the first link that lacubs (above my post) has. This is the e-mail I received too.

    One Spanish channel is more channels (plural)?

    Mentioned recently have been FSN San Diego and OWN. Both English. And the one Spanish channel shows soccer. You really need to understand the language to watch soccer? Goal! sounds the same to me.

    It is good to be tolerant of the programming choices of others. :)

    How is FSN SD too expensive? It will be part of the existing sports pack.

    I won't argue soccer with you.

    Especially when I have all my own favorites already. Makes it easier to be tolerant. ;)

    Yes, OWN will be launched in HD this Spring. We let customers know yesterday as part of a package change.

    Disagree, I watch my alma maters play basketball all the time on them. Some solid college sports content on there.

    Any chance of Fox Soccer Plus going full time HD or at least moved to the sports pack?

    My wife had a big smile on her face when I told her that OWN would be in HD.

    There are a lot of good locally produced shows that are found only on the RSNs. Good that is if you are a sports junkie.

    Your opinion. But still, how too expensive.

    For me, I get to see about 18 games over three months of my alma mater play. That's about $39 for 18 games, or about $2.17 per game. More than worth it for me. I also find other content on the RSNs I enjoy. Just my two cents.

    Yes, San Diego was the one referenced. OWN is a new one. So two are coming in the next few months. More after that.
