I have had the Flex pack for years but never added/removed any packs. I am considering adding the sports pack today to get ESPN so I can watch the Rose Bowl. I did a search here but the most recent info I found was from 2018, So I wanted to ask if anyone here can confirm if there is still no additional fees for adding/removing a channel pack on the same day? Thank you, and happy new year.

I added the pack with ESPN every Monday for football and as long as you remove it the same day, there's no charge. It's prorated so it comes out to 40 cents a day but as long as you add and remove it on the same day, it's free.

There is no extra charge for adding and removing. There may have been one for Latino but I've never added it so I can't confirm.

That's exactly what I ended up doing, added and removed on the same day, even doing that I still expected there to be at least some sort of incidental prorated charge but was pleasantly surprised to see I got to watch the game for free.

Cat, no bag. Secret handshake gone.

The only challenge I have sometimes is remembering to turn it off at the end of the day. I just see that as a stupidity tax.

Hello there, Cruiser! We wanted to jump in on this as well, everyone is correct: There are no Programming Change fees for adding or removing the Channel Packs, such as the National Action Pack.

This seems to present a
HUGE
Loop hole.

Subscribe to the very basic lowest level,
Add whatever packs in morning to watch
Any/all available channels,
Delete packs when shutting down, end of day.
Continue to pay only for the lowest basic pack.

Hmmmmm......
