Talking to Directv said the entertainment pack will not have any sports.
Similar to cox who has announced a package without ESPN channels to lower cost.
This will have ESPN & ESPN2.
Didn't see another thread on this, apologize if there is one but, has anyone else heard of this potential new package supposedly available next month? Found this on the other forum...I would be potentially interested in this if it happens.
