is family available to everyone? when i go to d* website and select english tv packages it only lists choice, extra, ultimate and premier. am i missing some?


Yep. Family $29.95, SELECT $44.95 (being removed Feb 9th)...They dont want you to see them, because people would downgrade from the expensive packages. You have to call a CSR and specifically request them.


Apparently, from the email I received, the Entertainment package should appear there, come February.

Tivo Premier XL4, Tivo Premier, Tivo HD whole home on Xfinity HD, DirecTv Whole Home with 39" high gain KaKu dish, Roku3,SageTv 8 TB Win8 Server -> DVDO Edge-> Denon AVR, Klipsch KB15's/Panasonic 55ST60 plasma"

What are the "four FREE Advanced Product Upgrades?"


One of them is probably a new 2 year commitment.... :D:D:D

Another question will be, does it qualify for free HD.

Select Classic is still available if you ask. Currently it is $39.99, but goes to $41.99 on Feb 9. It qualifies for the HD credit. I've had it the past year, and it has everything I need, except for the Food channel. But the price is just right for me. However, will entertain the thought of switching to the Entertainment package once the channels are known.

Do you have the channel lineup for that saved? I had to get rid of SELECT (not classic) because they wouldnt qualify that one for free HD, so it ended up costing the same as Choice.

Is there any word if NBCSN will be included with this? The press release made it sound like all sports except RSN would be included but NBCSN is not in Dish's AT200. I will be quite angry if this channel would end up costing like $20 extra per month.

wish they weren't waiting until THE day to leak the list of channels. I do watch ESPN, but I don't really watch my RSN (or the multitude of sports channels, although I'd miss MLBtv).

Slightly off topic, but does NHLCI include the NHL Network? I am wondering as to whether I would still get NHLN if the Entertainment package doesn't include it.

NHLN is included with CI if you don't already subscribe to Choice Xtra or above.

On another hand, I wonder if those that will subscribe to the Entertainment Package will be blocked from ordering any premiums or out-of-market sports subscription packages? As all of those require a subscription to the 'Choice' package or above. Feel free to correct me if I read anything wrong.

Subscribed to DirecTV for NFL Sunday Ticket, remained a subscriber for international football.

well on cable I think there is law saying that you can get limited basic and HBO.

I think the 1992 Cable Act says they are not allowed to force you to purchase tiers beyond the basic tier to subscribe to services offered on a per-channel or pay-per-view basis, such as HBO or a PPV boxing event.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

nope. Know of someone with Family pack and NHL CI. They just dont get to see the "local" team as they dont get a RSN
