    I have the Choice pack on DTV. But i'm seeing the NHL network and NBCSN on my package now. Is this new? I know Choice XTRA had a free preview but that's gone except for the two i just mentioned.
    Perhaps it's because of the Center Ice preview up to the 25th?, but NBCSN is not entirely hockey.
    Anyone else?

    Thanks. But what about NBCSN? It isn't part of the NHL, is it? I guess i'll know after the 25th.

    It looks as if the NHL Network has been added to the Xtra package. Previously it was only in the Ultimate package unless you had NHL Center Ice.

    I don't think so since there's a free preview of CI until the 25th, although I wish they would add it.

    If you check the channel lineup at DirecTV,com you will see that NHL Network is in the Xtra package. This is a fairly new development.

    Correct, it's included in the retired/grandfathered package 'CHOICE XTRA CLASSIC' and current base packages of 'ULTIMATE' and higher.

    Those with other base packages would only be receiving temporarily due to the NHL CI free trial.

    From the start of the season until yesterday, on the package comparison page on Directv's website,
    NHLN was showing as available in the XTRA package...

    Now to take it out is false advertising,,,

    All packages (including grandfathered ones) are subject to change without notice. :)

    Interesting, I just recently downgraded from "Choice Extra Classic" to "Choice" and now I'm getting some of these channels again. I'm even getting FOX Sports 2. Very weird.

    It has been seen FOX go is coming to directv soon it seems. Maybe they did a bit of contract work and have a new contract and placement for some FOX channels.
