October 5th Directv is drastically changing the Spanish packages and raising the prices on them. From their dealer notice they are also changing WorldDirect pricing but I see no notice of new European programming. :)

DirecTV offers Setanta and Barclays English Premier League programming. Not sure if you're a soccer fan.

I wish D* would someday add BBC World, DW TV, CNN International, CBC Newsworld, and CTV Newsnet to their International service! Add some International English channels that we could watch and PAY for!

What will these changes to the Spanish packages be?

If you are currently subscribing to the Opcion packages your programming will stay the same. If you change packages after 10/5/05 the English part will be drastically different. By memory the name will change to Seleccion and the $39.99 package will have 38 Spanish channels and only 85 English channels. :) :)

So what are the changes going to be for the WorldDirect packaging prices?
