Hi - new DirecTV customer here! Just got the HD-DVR-Plus package for my new LCD TV (Costco sign-up deal) and am very happy so far!

As a British ex-pat, I am interested in getting soccer coverage (specifically the Premiership, or EPL as you call it here) and understand that there are basically two sources - FSC (which is part of the Sports Pack) and Setanta.

I was wondering - considering I am only really interested in watching my team play, if I initially sign up for Setanta, can I then temporarily switch over to the Sports Pack if they are showing my team on FSC one weekend (and then revert to Setanta)? I understand that if you switch premiums, you need to keep it for at least 24 hrs before switching back - is that right?

Also, can I do the switching online through the D* website or would I need to call each time?

Many thanks!
