It appears that D* is in the process of deleting the MMM package. It's gone from the Sports drop-down menu at the top of the page. Although it's still showing in the "My Sports" listing for my account, clicking on the MMM link takes me back to the home page, whereas clicking on the links for the other packages takes me to a page about that package.

I know this was anticipated in light of the changes coming next year with all games being broadcast.

Not a surprise with the new CBS/Turner deal. All the games will be available to everybody next year...
Wish list of channels for D*: C-Span 3; BBC World News; Sky News International; CBC Newsworld; France24; EuroNews; Eurosportnews; Setanta Sports News; ABC News 24 (Australia); Australia Network (soon to be ABC Asia Pacific); Al Jazeera English; Russia Today; NHK World; DW-TV -- Heck, how about an entire English-language international tier so I don't have to keep switching to my Roku?

Hope they replace it with a free/paid HD mix channel with all four games.

This makes the most sense as it still gives them levarage over other providers simillar to their Masters golf or Wimbeldon tennis coverages

Given that they never offered that (god only knows why not) when we had to pay for MMM, I won't hold breath that they'll do it for free now.

I've subscribed to MMM since I've been a D* customer and I could of sworn, 2 or 3 years ago, for one year, the mix channel was in HD. Then it was never again.

I'd pay a small fee to get access to it again (in HD).
