what about the other sports channels
I still have ESPN Classic w/o the Sports Pack on Total Choice Extra. However I'm getting all the channels in the Sports Pack it seems. At least every one I've tried has worked.
Sports Pack free preview is going on until Thursday morning
Well then that's why!
are you sure.
Yes...it will end at 6:00am EST on Thursday
Just tried to turn on ESPN Classic and no dice.
ESPN Classic is a completely worthless channel. Everything they show is at least 10 years old and only in SD. Where do they get the nerve charging extra for it? And since part of the deal to move it to Sports Pack was we'd get ESPNU HD, why haven't they added it yet? Don't give me the no bandwidth excuse, we all know they could turn off some PPV right now and have plenty of room. they did it for BET HD which has only showed 1 program in HD since D* added it 3 months ago, the BET awards special. WTF???
Did you not read the thread discussing this? The deal was that they would swap ESPNU for ESPN Classic, nothing there was said about ESPNU HD, only that we would get it by the first quarter of 2010. If it's worthless though why do you care? We knew about this months ago though so I don't see why everyone gets mad now....
I have choice extra hd-dvr and don't subscribe to sports pack. I still get espn classic even thought the sports pack preview is over
I have TC+ and am still getting espn classic on 208, as well as espnu on 614. I don't really care about espn classic, but I do think I might occasionally watch espnu, especially if it ever goes HD.
I think sateliteracer was wrong
Not very likely. It is much more likely that things haven't caught up to us yet.
there was a sports pack preview this week, when it ended espn classic satyed on. if espn classic was in the sports pack it would have turned off at 6:00am
What's the big deal? Do you want it turned off that bad? Geez.
I am just saying that sateliteracer was wrong.
What part of "things haven't caught up yet", didn't you get? As the other posters noted, it takes time for things to migrate through the system, people are slow at the switch, it may be done rolling, etc.
One thing is certain. Several people with long established track records have stated clearly that classic will go away in the package. D* says it is going away. Whether it is today or in a week or more makes little difference to me. If it makes you feel better to think they are wrong, fine.
Maybe he was right and it hasn't caught up yet. Are you out to prove this for ulterior motives? The guy has been very helpful here & you seem dead set on this over ESPN Classic. Really???
So let me get this straight... You're mad that you no longer get a "completely worthless channel"?? :sure:
Classic gone here now... Oh well..
Sir, we heard you the first time.
