ESPN
ESN2
HGTV
TVGN
101
USA
TNT
TBS
COM
FIT
A&E
DSC
TLC
HDTH
NASA

CNw
NIKe
NIKw
HDN

TWC

INSP Religious, following channels
GTV
JLTV
WHT
HOPE
DSTR
EWTN

No, it is a stand-alone package. But if you have an international package, you may have a CSR stupidity encounter. I called to cancel my international programming, and Preferred Choice, and take the Select package. The international CSR said the Select package was cancelled. I politely told her NO it wasn't. She was gone 3 or 4 minutes to check on it, and returned and stated it had been cancelled. I politely said goodbye, I would call again.

This time I called the regular D* number, explained what the previous international CSR told me, and was promptly told it was NOT cancelled.

Its getting really bad with international CSR's giving wrong info, or just plain screwing up one's account.

I was able to switch to Select by talking to the frontline CSR, who knew exactly what I was talking about.

Sucks there is no food network. That is a biggie for me.

If it had Food Network and Animal Planet I would probably switch.

Also no Spike or SyFy. Guess it all depends on what you watch. I also will miss the Food Network.

Nope. Still $39.99 for Select.

I was pleasantly surprised when I saw my March bill today, since I was expecting a $3 increase.
