    One thing I do not understand is why Dish moved ESPN Classic into the Sports package only, as the other ESPN channels are with the regular fare. I am not a big sports fan, but I do like some of the old stuff they have on ESPN Classic, but it is not worth the cost of the sport package just for that one channel. With Dish dropping so many other channels like Cloo, G4, and KBS World, it would be nice to get ESPN back in the regular package.

    Espn did that on most systems. They did it to get espnu into the regular packages so it could get better ad dollars off its college current stuff rather than the classics. It was basically a swap on most systems in terms of placement for espnu and espn classic.

    Well if they made the ability to use auto hop a paid option then that would be fine and would give people the choice on the higher rates and could cover all shows. But instead it will likely get passed to everyone,.

    It's sure taking forever to make a deal.
