What is the least expensive package that includes the NHL channel? The information on Directv's website is not reliable.

HR44 (5 TB eSata) -> Runco LS-5 via HDMI

HR24-500 (2 TB eSata) -> Samsung 50" via HDMI
HR24-100 (1.5 TB eSata) -> Sony 50E2000 via HDMI
HR24-700 - owned (2 TB internal) -> Samsung LN32A550 via HDMI
HR20-100s - owned -> Sony Bravia 40"

They changed the minimum package just recently. You now have to go with Choice Ultimate to get NHL Network. A couple months ago, it was Choice Xtra. Also, if you subscribe to NHL Center Ice, you get NHLN during the season with any package.

Since I have the old Total Choice, that would be $120 per year. At that rate I might as well just get Center Ice next year.

Also, is there any place on DTV's web site which says what else you get with each package, including DVR service, whole home, etc. or do these services result in extra charges in every package?

Directv Premier Sport Packages  NFL ST, MLB EI, NHL CI, NBA LP,

Comcast Triple Play TV ( cheapest tv package for CSN Philly and TCN)

It changed on Feb 9th. I'm on the same package and since we had it before the change, we are grandfathered on a few channels:

NHL Network
Boomerang
CBS Sports Channel
Chiller
Sprout
Style
Tennis Channel

There is a whole thread on this and here is a [link]. The new Choice Xtra does not include NHL network.

Thats strange, because they said the only channel you would lose is Cloo. I have NHL CI, so I'm hoping NHLN doesn't go away, once the NHL CI package ends.

Wow... I was not aware of that. I watch a number of those channels. (NHL, CBS Sports, Tennis Channel) -- will I stay grandfathered into this package indefinitely?

I was grandfathered in today until I added HBO to my Classic package. Because Classic is no longer offered as a package, I had to change to Choice Extra so I lost NHL.
