I was looking at the packages on their main page I noticed that Total Choice Plus (which is what I have) states only 185+ channels and Choice Extra states 210+ channels. I thought both packages offered exactly the same channels?
The vary has only to do with the number of locals and RSNs between markets, not the package difference in the same market receiving the same locals.It says Channel Counts May Vary, does it not?
If you look at the list of channels when you click on the channel number link within each package, they list channels like ESPN not being available on Total Choice Plus. This channel was always part of this packageSrictly a guess on my part. That the channel count is based on some time in the past when the old package was phased out and has not been updated with channels that have been added to Plus package since then.
Music channels are the same. I have checked them outI did not know that TC+ ( my grandfathered package) was still on the website.
I had a while back looked at the channel list and found about 5-10 channels that you got with the Choice Extra, don't think there were any in it that I had any interest in.
Numbers could also be boosted by adding more music channels.
I know this will do absolutely no good to mention, since it's been discussed to death umpteen times around here, but...
Right now, there is ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, NO DIFFERENCE between the TC+ & Choice Xtra prog packages, other than a $2.50 price difference - regardless of what any D* rep says.
Several of us have confirmed this in multiple posts - but again, I doubt it will matter to mention...
