I'm getting it with Choice Xtra Classic. It'd be nice if it was captioned in English so I could know what they're saying though.


Yea right, and I bet you read Playboy for the articles :sure:

Actually, I have Choice Extra Classic, too, but I'm still not getting it.

I emailed Directv and told them I had Extra package. Asked what channels the ch should be in, they said after reviewing my package that I should be getting it. Said to call technical support.
I may call tomorrow.

If you should be getting 455 Univision Deportes HD, but aren't.
If you have a customized channel list, verify that both the "Channels Blocked" and the "Favorites" have 455 HD "Activated".
In the past, when DTV upgraded a channel from SD to HD, the new HD channel, with/without "Hide SD Duplicates", would seamlessly appear on the customized guide.
Sometime back, and including the 8 HD channels (204 HLNHD -- 559 IFCHD) launched in January, that was not the case.
There would be duplicates: example:
204 HLN SD
204 HLN HD
The old 204 SD would still be checked, but the duplicate new 204 HD would not.
When the 204 SD was removed by DTV, the new 204 HD would not be checked, unless the sub went into the menu and manually added it.
First go into the "Channels Blocked" and "Favorites" and check the 455 HD.
If you then tune to the channel, and get the new "You are Not Subscribed" screen, then you will need to contact DTV.

I just talked with a DIRECTV rep about the channels and he informed me that the three channels will be available on the top three Spanish Packages (Optimo Mas, Mas Ultra, & Lo Maximo) not on the lower tier one (Mas Latino). I'm not sure about which packages the channels will be on for the English programming though. He said that this could change in the future if there is any more movement of channels but for now, it will remain like this.

Hopefully this helps out with any confusion, I haven't seen many people talk about the Spanish Packages, only English.

After an initial e-mail that incorrectly stated Xtra and higher on Friday night, I just got confirmation from them:

Univsion Deportes:
Mas Latino or higher
Ultimate or Higher
en Espanol Add On
Sports Pack

tlnovelas and ForoTV:
Optimo Mas and higher
en Espanol Add On

They didn't mention which grandfathered packages get them.

I have the granfathered "Familiar Ultra" and am not getting it. I called, and CSR said I would not be able to get it on my granfathered package, and asked me if I wanted to change. The problem is my current package has the NFL network, where none of the other Spanish packages have it except for "Optimo" which includes all channels. I'm not wanting to pay double what I pay now just to get one channel. Anybody know where I can write to and submit a request to add this to my package? :mad:

I doubt that grandfathered packages would get anything new.

The multiple posts in this thread and in the HD anticipation thread of people with Choice Xtra Classic saying they have it seem to indicate otherwise.

Directv.com list the channel in EXTRA-ULTIMATE - PREMIERE

And we have multiple people with Xtra saying they're not getting it. My guess is that the initial info was drafted before the packages and contracts were finalized.

There's a known issue with customers in grandfathered base packages not getting this channel all at the same time. Choice Xtra Classic is supposed to have it, but access cards are being updated through April 2nd to fix this. Sit tight :)

Choice Extra Classic + Sports Pack. Might be the latter that gets it for me - but, that's as inconsistent as any other package analysis.

Channel came in yesterday with my granfathered package. I guess they were just late sending updates to the cards or something...

They updated the website, Xtra isn't getting it only Xtra Classic is. If you have a current package you need Ultimate or higher or the Sports Pack.
