    I was somewhat interested when it was Sleuth, but the overly compressed SD gave me a headache:)

    Thus ensuring that nobody will ever watch this channel.

    Yeah... it being in SD only, I never bother to watch it, so it really doesn't bother me. :sure:

    Kind of odd. You can get all of the other "Ultimate" channels with Starz and Showtime. Got a feeling more basic niche channels will be moving to "Ultimate" to push people to upgrade. Pretty sure that's the same day Fox Deportes is leaving the Sports Pack which annoys me. Guess I'll miss the boxing because I'm not paying $15 for En Espanol.

    Fox Deportes moves this week out of Sports Pack. February 9th CLOO moves to Ultimate. There may be another changes as well. With each new negotiated deal, costs change and distribution changes sometimes as well.

    I hope enough gets moved to Ultimate I can justify not keeping Xtra. Of course, I'll be dropping my package at that point, not upgrading. Why pay even more for the upgraded package to keep what I had when that price went up too. I understand channel price negotiations and all, I'm just tired of higher costs, channels moving, threats to pull, etc.

    Indeed. I think I'll be dumping Sports Pack shortly.

    I'm a bit surprised they're not also moving Chiller to Ultimate. Both are from Comcast/NBC and rolled out at the same time.

    I guess they are trying to figure out how to make folks get out of the older packages. Feh.

    I need to dump some of my premiums anyway...

    I watched this channel back when it was Sleuth and I was burning through Monk episodes.

    I'd watch it more if it was in HD. I have to really be into a show to watch it in SD.

    I watched it more when it was Sleuth, back when I had Mediacomm years ago. The channel looks like crap on D*. Most of the shows can be found on other networks such USA.
