    How can you guys say they don't have too much sports? They have every single out of market sports package including 3 that are exclusive, almost every national sports channel, every FSN affiliate and almost every CSN affiliate, almost every independent RSN, the golf, tennis and European soccer packages, every channel between 600 and 799 is sports channel for God's sakes. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT??????

    I personally would vote yes directv does have to much sports. But Im not much of a sports fan of any sport for the most part. The only sport I really ever watched was baseball Tigers and they are on my regional FSN network included in my package. I think that if someone has the money and are big fans of all different kinds of sports DirecTV gives the best variety. So IMHO for sports fans DirecTV could never have enough. For non-sports fans like me DirecTV has way to much sports :lol:.

    The only way D* would have too many sports channels is if it limited other content, and at this point I don't think they do.

    I'm assuming you meant national channels. We still want those Comcast RSNs that aren't uplinked via satellite and Versus. ESPN Alternate and ESPN Gameplan in HD would be nice to have too.

    How can you have too much sports. Sports are like money, you can never have enough.

    They need MORE!

    I'd love Versus, MSG-HD, CBC and TSN fom Canada.... Sky Sports from Europe too.

    Sports is the only reason I subscribe to D*. Haven't watched a movie in a year!

    That's just the point. Those of us who are fans of some of those other sports really appreciate the choices and the chance to see sports we love. I believe when cable and satellite first started growing they called it "niche" broadcasting. An example of this would be college hockey. Overall nationally college hockey has almost no following. But a provider like D* gives college hockey fans a chance to actually SEE some games, instead of reading about them.

    Does D* have too many home shopping and infomercial channels? Absolutely...but I'll bet you can find people who love them.

    I wonder if how many people who think there is too much remember the days of 3 local channels? I remember the excitement when a couple of new UHF stations came on in the late 60's/ early 70's.

    Remember when CNN actually did in depth coverage of news? And headline news was exactly that? I digress.

    I suspect the 7 people want more movie channels, shopping channels and arts/craft type channels. The sports channel they want "Bingo TV" I agree this poll is very stupid.

    My grandma would watch that channel.

    Maybe I work for DirecTV and I'm doing market research.

    I doubt it. You probably work for Comcast, dish network or a craft store of some sort.
