Really? I used to have the FAMILY package and "The N" (Noggin) was included. You mean those cheapskates at DirecTV removed it from FAMILY?

I agree. I wish DiecTV offered The Science Channel on the lower package. That is the ONLY channel I want from the package I'm on.

I have the Family Package and I do not think it is much of a value. If I am going to pay that much then I wish we had ala-carte pricing even if it meant fewer channels it would be channels I watch.

When I had the Family Package last year, Noggin was included. DirecTV shows that it is still included in that package on their list here: http://www.directv.c...questid=6570674
