Did DirecTV recently change their channel lineup for the Choice Extra package? I used to have NBA TV, but not anymore. If they did, what other channels did they take out?

It was a preview. You will need the sports pack to get it.

When NBAHD went live around November 2007, they gave a free preview for the entire season, then another short preview to start this season.

You either need the Sports Pack or Premier Package to get NBA TV.

Does the NBA TV channel stay on all year if you don't have the Sports Pack but did purchase the NBA League Pass? Or does it turn off after the season?

I think it stays on all year, as long as the league pass is still on the account, even though it is expired.
