    As an offshoot of this poll, please indicate which monthly or seasonal packages you subscribe to.

    DIRECTV mentioned in their conference call that 92% of their subscribers have premiums, and their web site lists the following under the [Premium] menu on the home page:

    1. HBO
    2. SHOWTIME UNLIMITED
    3. Starz Super Pack
    4. Cinemax
    5. Sports Pack
    6. Adult
    7. Game Lounge
    8. BabyFirst TV
    9. HD Extra Pack
    I've now added the subscription packages listed under the [Sports] menu:

    1. NFL SUNDAY TICKET
    2. [strike]NASCAR HotPass[/strike] Please don't vote for this - now available to all customers free (Will ask moderators to remove from poll)
    3. ESPN GamePlan
    4. ESPN FULL COURT
    5. MLB EXTRA INNINGS
    6. NBA League Pass
    7. NHL CENTER ICE
    8. MLS Direct Kick
    9. CricketTicket
    10. Setanta Sports
    11. NCAA MEGA MARCH MADNESS
    I only listed the Sports Pack once, even though it's on both menus, and excluded Golf, Tennis, UFC and ECW as they are not subscriptions.

    Which of these do you have? I'm curious what the most popular premium package is ... my suspicion is it will be the Sports Pack, but it very well could be HBO.

    I'm pretty sure the most popular sports package will be NFL Sunday Ticket, but the Sports Pack itself could be the most popular sports package.

    Now when we combine the Sports plus Premiums, will we approach DIRECTV's "92%"?

    Multiple choice poll - click all that apply.

    For the purposes of this poll, only choose Adult if you pay a recurring fee for a monthly package, not if you just do occasional PPV.

    I did not list the Premier Package as an option - if you subscribe to Premium, select HBO, Showtime, Starz, Cinemax, and Sports Pack individually.

    Also, I specifically left off an option for "Other", as I'm going strictly by what's on the DIRECTV home page [Premium] and [Sports] menus.

    Grandfathered Total Choice Plus, which, IIRC, saves me $3 over Choice Extra.

    HD Extra Pack.
    I also get the Nascar Hot pass but since it is now free I did not check it as subscribed.

    As for the movie channels.....If there is a movie I want to watch I'll get it on Blu-Ray for the highest quality audio & video possible. :D

    I would remove Nascar. Everyone gets it now with the right base package.

    HBO, Showtime, Sports pack, NFL Sunday Ticket, NBA League Pass (for now). Starz as loyalty reward (1yr) didn't select that. ;)

    I'll ask a moderator to remove it from the poll, as the DIRECTV page shows it's free without an additional subscription.

    It's early, but the no premiums percent is pretty close to the DirecTV number now. Let's see if that holds up.

    Subscribed for the first time this past season, loved it, so I'll probably keep getting it.

    HD Extra
    not a regular subscriber, just get it free for 3 months occasionally, so I didn't vote for it in the poll.

    No other subscriptions.

    Premier package. I did not click sports package though. I do not subscribe to that. They just add it. Like religious and shopping channels, it just is added to the package.

    Interesting how the percentage of "None of the Above" is about 1/2 compared to your other poll, Drew...
