I can't believe that Dish wouldn't be able to work out a deal now that it's that cheap. If they have to, I think they could safely increease the price of the sports pack by a buck or two since DirecTV considers it a premium at $12 a month.
This type of channel (Raptor TV) was added to our digital line-up last September in Canada. As a $1.99CDN a month pick n' pay, I'm sure basketball starved Canadians found it to be a bargain.
