I inquired as to whether I could get the Attitude channel ala carte (it said so on a channel guide I have), but their response only mentioned purchasing the entire sports pack. Is ala carte still available?

I work with a guy who pays extra for one of the channels from the sports pack individually. I think it is the outdoor channel. He pays a set price for it every month and does not sub to the Sports Pack.

Why do that when they can get people to pay for both?

because some want only things like Rodeo, Fishing and Soccer, but do not care for sports that are from other areas, like baseball, etc/

yes, I know, but I hate pregame shows and regional events that are not pro sports. Who wants to see some high school football from all the way across the country
