None, debating whether or not to get extra innings now. I do have sports pack, but I don't really count that.

Count me in the none column.

Had NFLST but dropped it a couple of years ago. Wasn't worth the cost for only the 2-3 games I wanted to watch that weren't on my normal channels.

Paying for 2009 NFL now, had NBA-LP for this year. Had MLB-EI last year but cancelled due to no WGN America in HD and don't want to pay for MLB-EI if D* doesn't want to pay for WGN America.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Extra Innings, ESPN Full Court and Sports Pack, though I believe I'll start dropping Sports Pack from April to September. Not much in the way of college sports during those months; mostly baseball for me in the summer months, and I think I can get all or most of the MLB games I want with the EI package.

Does that make sense, or am I missing something?

Why isn't NONE an option?

I have absolutely no interest in any Sports package.

I have Premier (includes locals) with HD and DVR Service plus ABC/CBS/NBC/FOX SD DNS service.

-------------------------
Note to DirecTV:
My Zip code is 08008.

I live 60 miles East of Philadelphia.

I'm 83 miles South of NY.

Comcast provides KYW, WPVI, WCAU, WHYY, WPHL, WTXF, WPSG & WMCN all in both SD & HD in Ocean County.
Why don't you?

Prices keep rising, in-game ads keep rising and one-by-one I keep dropping packages each year. Center Ice will bite the dust for me after this season. I am finding that I rarely miss the packages since a number of each sports are still free on ad supported OTA and cable channels.
I thought that I would really miss Sunday Ticket, but I was really tired of all of the commercials. When I noticed that one game stopped for a commercial and I would switch to another game and then another game - all with commercials - I decided enough is enough. Now I have more time for productive things in life.
