We have recently installed DirectTV (choice SD Package) and was expecting, also led to believe, that NESN (our New England connection) was included in all of the packages and did not require the sport pack or a higher tier package. Have I misunderstood?

You can enter your zip code into directv's sports finder web page to see what RSNs should be included in your area. It's located under the sports tab of their website. Or just a google search away.


Good TV (Cable). Better TV (Dish Network). DirecTV.

NESN should be included for you with any base package CHOICE or higher.
Enter you zip code here
to verify.
Not only should you get NESN (Ch. 628) but also Comcast New England (Ch. 630).

Edit: Kevin beat me to it.
What happens when you tune to 628 or 630? Some type of error message?
