Just EI for me. Not a big basketball or Hockey fan. If football was played on more than just Sunday's, I would probably sub to ST, but I cannot justify paying all of that money for choices 1 day a week.

Most of those with sports packages have multiple packages. If there are any (at least of those that posted) that have only one it seems to be ST.

None. Between my RSN (Twins), Big 10 Network (Purdue), and being too cheap to pay for Sunday Ticket to watch Da Bears my sports needs are covered.

My top 5 wishlist: 1) Free MRV HR to HR 2) Fix Channels I Receive so that it is accurate 3) > 50 SeriesLink 4) Usage of both internal and external drives concurrently 5) Support for other video providers as DoD (i.e. Hulu, CBS)

I only have the Sports Pack, which I have primarily for college sports. Used to have Setanta but dropped it because I wasn't watching enough to justify the cost. I see no real reason for me to subscribe to any of the league-specific packages because I live within the local broadcast area for all four pro teams I follow (the Capitals, the Redskins, the Nationals, and DC United), so I wouldn't gain anything with Center Ice or the rest. If I were to relocate, though, it would wind up being a different story and I'd add Center Ice in a heartbeat.

NHL Center Ice since 1995. That's my only sports subscription, since I only watch hockey (and lacrosse, but there's no package for that).

yeah its different for you. the sports subscriptions are really meant for the fan who is "displaced" who doesn't follow the local teams. So thats not going to affect you.
