Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. We have the Grandfathered "Total Choice" package. What is the next higher up package? Is it the "Choice" package?

Total Choice and Choice are the same basically. Next step up would be Choice Extra and then Ultimate.

Actually Choice is a DOWNGRADE from TC; Choice is missing about 13 channels that are in TC.
But yes, Choice Xtra would be the next step up, then Choice Ultimate.

I thought all grandfathered packages were migrated to Choice Classic or something similar just last month?

Yup. Should have paid attention to the posts on this system and upgraded to "Choice Extra" prior to 2/9/12. Then you would have gotten "Choice Extra Classic" (no loss of channels like the current "Choice Extra") for the same price. But now it's too late... :(

I think the only channel in my Channel List that disappeared was Cloo and I don't think I ever watched anything on it. No biggie in my case...

Are you on Classic or New Xtra? Classic only lost Cloo. New Xtra lost a few more.
