This is why Directv should have the "Sports Lovers" pack, which includes all of the sports channels (including Spanish ones) and a very few "basic" cable channels (CNN, Comedy, Nick, Disney, TBS, TNT, USA, etc). Add the HD Extra for Smithsonian, Palladia, and add Planet Green and H2 to the HD Extra (of course continuing whatever oversight causes us to have unlimited free access!) and you've got a package. With locals, AM21 for AntennaTV, MeTV, RTV, and This, and also with Audience, you've got a decent selection of sports, classic shows, and non-crap. This is fantasy land, I realize, but still... it would be nice. Maybe what we need is the "Reality Free" Package. If a channel goes crap, it gets dropped. If a channel moves it's good shows to a new channel, the new channel gets added. As long as it's not a 90% reality-show channel, it's in the package. Now I'm really in Fantasy Land.
