    Two questions:

    First of all, a few weeks ago my TiVo sent a message that Fox Sports Espanol had been added to my lineup at channel 616 (previously it was on 425 in the para todos package I think). For a few days, I was receiving ShopNBC.com on that channel and then all of sudden I was getting FSE on 616. For about two weeks I had this channel and my understanding was that it had been added to the SportsPack. Now, it seems to be gone. I get a Channel Not Available message on my D10 and ShopNBC again on my DirecTiVo units. Anybody know the story here?


    Secondly, a few minutes ago my stand-alone TiVo reported a new message that they were adding the following channels:

    9995 SKYSPO1
    9996 SKYONES
    9999 SKYNWS

    Anybody know what this is about. Any chance we are about to get SkySports, SkyOne, and SkyNews on DirecTV. That would be fabulous!

    I just checked and I don't see any thing.

    I have a bunch of 9XXX channels that says "to be announced"

    I think my FSE problem is a multi-switch. I'm getting the channel on some receivers and not others, even on tuner A on my TiVo but not on tuner B!

    Just got confirmation from someone at DirecTV that those sky channels are "test" channels. he would not confirm or deny that they would be going live to the general public in the near future but it sounds promising.

    Sky package comes under total choice or separate Internarional package?

    I don't think it's available at ALL right now. I would like it to be. The channel placement makes it look like they may only be testing or not even there at all.
