I downgraded my package this week from Premiere to Choice Extra, and to my surprise I lost ESPN classic. I'm guessing this is a mistake?

It became part of the Sportspack when they moved ESPNU to Choice-X.

Which leads to my directv gripe. There is only one place you can see channels in a comparison between packages, and it is a really poor interface. On the website, choose packages, channels (View & Print) and then go to the compare tab. Now that I have looked at for this thread, ESPN Classic is not even listed. Why can't they have pdf with the channels in each package, side by side?

Actually ESPN Classic is listed. For some reason it is listed as the first channel in the premiums section. The premiums section is mostly the movie channels HBO, Showtime, etc. but for some reason it also includes ESPN Classic, TVG, Outdoor Channel, CBS College Sports, Fox Soccer Channel, GOL TV, and Fox Sports Espanol. I thought maybe they were included because they were in the sports pack (which I guess would be concerned a premium package) but not all of those channels are in the sports pack. According to it TVG is in Choice Extra and up, and CBS College Sports is in Choice Ultimate and up.

Because that would make way too much sense.

It's not that easy to compare packages but Wikipedia has all the info you need.
