I'm getting a 5-LNB put in Saturday and I'm really considering adding this package. I've found a list from 2009 which includes the channels but nothing recent. I'm curious if there is a current list of channels and if the HD counterparts (specifically for Telefutura, which I believe is the West feed only for HD) are included with this package.

Thank you.

Yes, in order to have HD it's the same as an English package you must have HD Access.

Basically, with the En Español package you would get all the Spanish TV and music channels what you would normally receive with a Más base package.

This pack is real good if you do not have Univision or Telemundo in your area. You'll also get programming from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Central and most of South America. I really like the Pasiones channel.

The notable exception is HBO Latino, you would only get it if you have HBO.

My favorite channel on that package is MEGATVHD..channel 405.

Check out a show called "Esta noche tonite" at 7pm.

The present price of the En Espanol add-on package is $19 or $19.95 (not sure which).

The above comments are my own because I don't know if anyone would care about my opinions anymore.

The only reason I want it is for boxing. I'll get Fox Deportes (which I already subscribe to with Sports Pack but don't get with the 3 LNB), as well as Telefutura, Telemundo, and TYC Sports which all have a decent amount of boxing that I can't get on any other channels.

It seems the En Espanol package does give you every additional Spanish channel that isn't available in an english package.

I modified the list to add HD. I fixed it. Thanks.
