Or do you have to at least have 120+? If you can get it with AT120 do you still get your local RSN with it? Would be cheaper to get AT120 and multi sport pack than to get AT120+

Nope. Dish wants you to already have some of the channels that are in a package you're paying extra for. :confused:

So for an AT120 subscriber, Multi-Sport will cost you $19 extra per month!

NOPE NOPE NOPE you must start with AT120+ McHuf is wrong yes the cost is $19 but you can't go directly from AT120. AT120 must be upgraded to 120+ then you can add the sport pak.

I think MCHuf was being funny, if you start at AT120, then added AT120+ and then added the Multi-sports pack would increase your bill $19 per month.

Yes, I was being sarcastic. ;)

I'm sure a rsn charges more for an in-market customer than it would for a Multi-Sport customer based far away. Thus a higher priced package that already has an rsn is needed to be able to include that particular rsn in the Multi-Sports package. But the $10 increase from AT120 to AT120+ is borderline disgusting.

agreed. $5 was OK but $10?
Damn just upgrade to AT200 for $5 more then...get more channels

I wonder what happens to those 7 people who have Dish in NY if they want the sports pack? Dish carries NO RSN"s in NY so that sub in Buffalo who wants the sports pack to see some college sports has to pay $19 for sports pack if he has AT120?
