I am considering switching from E* to Directv and was wondering if Directv offers ESPN Alternate channel like E* does?

ESPN Alts are available on Directv with Total Choice. If the games are the same, you may see only one Alt listed, though. Extra Innings has nothijng to do with the availability of ESPN channels.

ESPN Alternate Channels Usually Show up On Wednsday Nights when ESPN and ESPN 2 Wedsnday Night Baseball games are on. Usually there is a game on ESPN Channel 206 and the Alternate Game is available on Channel 210

And at times due to wacky blackout rules even on the Alt game they use Channel 211 as well.
