Updated for 2013 including the 2/17 price increases.
We are often asked about the Family and Select packages, what channels are included and what is not. Packages like Family and Select are available from DirecTV CSR's by request for most customers, but they intentionally do not provide information on their website, including what channels are included.
We have compiled information from several sources to build a complete list of packages and channels, as accurate as possible. There may be a few misses in these, let me know if that is the case so we can fix it - you can just post it in this thread.
Several packages have been merged into Choice Xtra Classic, including Total Choice Plus, and Plus HD / Plus HDDVR.
New this year Choice Xtra Classic is $1 more than the current Xtra package. (includes Boomerang, Chiller, NHL Net, PBS Sprout, Style, and Tennis).
We hope this helps you understand what is available in each package, including the select packages. Remember, with Family, Select, or Entertainment packages you do NOT get your Regional Sports Network (channels like YES, Fox Sports Net, Comcast Sports Net, NESN, MASN, TWC, etc.)
Thanks for being Satelliteguys!
