Has anyone else noticed they are getting Choice Extra? I have an older Total Choice package and I am getting DIY and Green Channels along with others that are not normally in my plan. I know it's not Choice Ultimate since I'm not getting any Encore channels. I hadn't heard of D* having a free week. Anyone else?

Looks like a free preview through the 5th.

I see now, I just got a e-mail from D* tips and tricks newsletter showing the free preview for Choice xtra from today until Sept 5th.

Thanks

I also have the old no longer available Total Choice package. From what I recall the Choice Extra package doesn't have SportsSouth that carries a lot of Braves games. Is there an easy way to compare the Total Choice package to the current packages? There is no going back to Total Choice if I try a new package.

We received the little in-guide mail notification for the free preview but none of the channels are working for us. Well, aside from the NFL Network. That isn't part of our Select Classic package, so I don't know what is going on.

Select clients won't receive this "Free Preview". Only for Choice or above.
