If you have a mpeg-4 capable receiver, you'll find them on 552 for HDNET Movies and Universal HD is on 259.

There is no SD version. HD Extra Pack is for HD channels which do not have a SD equivalent (HDNet is an exception).

Or, if DirecTV doesn't carry the SD version, as in the case of Crime and Investigation channel.

You'll need a MPEG4 capable receiver and the Slimline dish to view them.

Huh? Getting HDNet Movies and MGM HD both in a $5 package is one of the best bargains in TV.

Equipment includes a buncha stuff that I no longer have interest in detailing
