Hi I was just scrolling through the guide and I'm getting CBS College Sports Network now (channel 613) but I don't have Sports Pack. None of the other Sports Pack channels are coming in either. Did it move packages or is there like a free preview of it going on?

What package do you subscribe to? Even though you don't subscribe to the Sports Pack it is included in the Premier package.

Right, but I didn't quote TomCat (don't call him OP he hates that). I quoted Mystic and asked him what package he subscribed to as he stated he has always received the channel in question.

The thing is, I checked the website, and that is not what the website indicates. Heck, the website can be wrong. I get the sports pack personally, so I can't tell...

The website does not list the channels in Total Choice Plus, unless you jump in your Delorean, set the date for 2005, and drive it at 88 mph.:lol:

Bingo. Just read another article that said NHL Network is offering a free preview. That's another channel I get already.

NHLN is on Choice Xtra so the only people getting it free are Choice customers(or Family Pack, does anyone actually have that though?)

I have Choice Plus and have always gotten CBS Sports HD without the sports pack. Are your local RSN's off too?

So as Tom has said, I also now get CBS Sports Channel and did not before.:grin: I remember when I signed up for D* in Aug '08 I got CBS Sports, then it was taken away and put into the sports tier. Now I have it again. So there is something going on.
