    I'm getting the Sports Pack and Setanta channels all of a sudden. Is there a free preview running?

    According to ads running on ESPN, Setanta is free preview Sept. 14-20.

    Not my cup of tea.

    It's your anniversary gift from Directv. Mine started Sept. 1. They usually last 3 months.

    Can't be, I signed on October 28 of last year. If it is a gift I want to exchange it for Playboy Channel instead. I hate Sports Pack, nothing but infomercials and blackouts.

    I am getting it also and it is my "loyalty gift". If you look at the D* website it will be listed under the my programming and then under my services. I also think it is almost worthless, but I rarely so no to a gift. It would be nice to get playboy :D or even a movie package. Oh well. I could probably call and ask them to change it.

    Hmm I just noticed I'm getting this as well.

    Is this an advertised preview? I remember getting the Choice package preview not long ago.

    If this is a gift, D*'s getting overly loyal. I already have Showtime for a year.

    Not sure why but I'm also getting Sports Pack. Just seems like they would notify people about being able to view it though.
