    Isn't that the channel the Conference-USA home channel?

    If you are a Memphis State fan, it has to be worth it to get the while conference.

    Memphis State is the old name.
    It's been known as "University of Memphis" for over a decade now.

    What does this mean?

    "In addition to Choice Xtra, the network - on channel 613 - remains accessible in both standard and high-definition through the provider's Premier Package and Sports Pack.
    "

    Does this mean that you only get the HD version if you subscribe to Premier or the Sports Pack?

    Are you paying for HD access? If so, you will get the HD version.
    [edit] Oops, I see what you mean, but my guess is that it's a typo or mistranslation. As far as I know - if it's available in HD and you get the SD version, you should also get the HD version, except for the "HD Plus" package.

    I'm hoping it's just some bad writing, and that as Choice Extra (and above)subscribers one will get it in HD if they pay for the HD access.

    Yep, since 1994. When I was accepted there I received a letter stating I was in the first class at the University of Memphis.

    Am I reading this right? The article saids you can get this either on the sports pack or Choice Xtra. Are there other channels in a similiar situation?

    Seriously. If NBA TV were to move over to Choice Xtra, and TC+ didn't get it, that would finally be the push I need to pay DirecTV an extra $2 per month.

    I am sure ESPN is pushing for this. If this does happen I'd drop the Sports Pack, ESPNU is the only real reason I can see keeping it.
