Is Family package going incognito like the Select Package? I currently have the Family Package but do not see it listed any longer on the website to new subscribers since the price increases.

With the economy like it is, you would think a low priced offering would be advertised on the website to new subscribers.

When i changed from family to select and asked if they has a listing of channels i was told that select wasn't listed on the website,they only offer it to people that call and complain about prices.

Maybe they are doing that with family also.

Can you provide a list of the channels available on Select? Ive been trying to find out for a while now. Specifically, are 206, 209, and 607 included? What is the current (new) price?

Yep, they always hold out one channel you need so you have to spend $20 a month more for it :)

Since I subscribed to Sports Pak, Speed Ch 607 HD is included, but not the SD Speed channel. They currently have a $5 off Sports Pak for 6 months offer.

I'd drop packages. But History channel and Speed would have to be on it.
95% of stuff I watch is on Discovery, History, Science and Speed for Nascar.

I wish they still offered the Basic Package. I have Family but really don't see the value for $29.99. I am going to get my OTA set up fixed and just dump the service all together I think. Nothing against D I just do not need any channels other then local any longer. With Netflix streaming and blu ray discs coming in the mail I have all I can watch.
