    I've noticed the following channels have been added to the Choice Package the past couple of months.

    NBCSNHD, NGWHD, FS2HD, GolfHD, FXM, FXXHD

    Any other channels expected to be added, or removed?

    I have choice and just checked. The only one of the channels that you listed that I receive is NBCSNHD (220). Enjoy your bonus channels.

    I just recently "shaved the cord" down to Choice from Premium and can confirm that I am now getting those channels as well as CBS Sports Network on 221.

    Thanks for the info.

    CBSSNHD is working for me also now. Wonder if this is a fluke?

    The website must not be updated then because it shows CBSSN and FS2 in Xtra or higher, don't see it listed under Choice

    NBCSN starting working back in April when the NHL playoffs started. They didn't update the website channel list until June.

    Yeah, I'm not sure because I have Xtra but if Choice is getting NBCSN, CBSSN, FS2 among others now, kind of tempting to go down a notch but It's just about a $7 difference.

    So you are getting all three of the channels I mentioned currently in Choice? Interesting.

    Yes, they are working. I dropped down last year from XTRA and was worried about missing the NHL playoffs this year on NBCSN. Luckily I got to see them all on this package.

    That's good. NBCSN not being on Choice originally was a huge reason why I didn't go with it as NASCAR and hockey are on it. I can't go without that channel. I think that's great that FS2 is on Choice now as well, except another guy above said he wasn't getting them so I have no idea what that's all about.

    I'm surprised this many channels have been added to the package. Maybe a huge price hike is coming to this package this year? You can drop down a package and if those channels don't work, call them to revert your change.

    I'd have to see what all channels I'd end up losing but evidently the website isn't very accurate so that won't tell me much of what I would lose. Says Choice 175+ and Xtra 220+ so that's a difference of about 45 channels and I have no clue which 45 channels those are.

    As for the price hike, that would not surprise me in the least bit. It's so hard to keep the cost of TV under $100 these days. We've also got to remember that AT&T will most likely be taking over so I'm sure the price will really go up.

    I just went down to Choice and I've gotten FS2 and NBCSN since the day I made the call.

    I guess I am an unlucky one, I just downgraded from Xtra Classic to Choice and I lost all those channels except NBCSN

    That would be nice if we did. Did you see somewhere we are supposed to? That is the only channel that I dont have that I really would like to have I guess. Not gonna go to the Ultimate package and pay for the Encore channels twice to get it though.

    The DirectTV site doesn't show GolfHD on Choice, just Xtra.

    I noticed tonight that I'm getting the NHLN now too. I wasn't getting it when I first down graded to Choice a few months ago.
