I asked if the channels you wanted were in a cheaper pack on D* than E*.
did I mention EVEN??
Don't go by number of channels you get, go by your bottom line.
You may be able to get the cheapest E* package and add the sports pack for $7 if the channels you want are included.
AAH, I bet it's the NBCSC formerly Versus, you are complaining about. That network charges the providers an arm and a leg almost as bad as ESPN (which demands to be in every pack and charges almost more than some premium channels). That's not the providers fault. The alternative is for E* or any other provider to not carry the network at all.
