It sounded like it was being pulled from a regular package.....I don't see it as crap and think you miss what this change means. Lower packages can now get /it as part of a popular package. (Platinum) It gives a sort of a la carte choice that I see some seem to want. This is a good move to give a couple of options.
But it used to be advertised as all HDSorry but Platinum was never advertised as commercial free and there have been channels not commercial free. It's fine to to be critical but if you make your own rules on what a package is I can't agree. Adding any channel not available in the lower packages helps those who do not want a higher package but do want Platinum.
Has hallmark movie chanel been turned on for platnum
A caution here.The ones that have the 250 package lost an HD channel with the loss of FTV because we already had Hallmark HD.
