I have a question. I have the Ultimate HD Package. I would like to add Fox Midwest Sports. One Dish CSR said I could and another said the computer would not let him. Other than subscribing to Dish 100+ is there anyway to add Fox Sports? Thanks

Is the Ultimate HD package the HD only package? If so than you cannot add RSNs (regional sports networks). The only way to receive your RSN is to subscribe to 100+, 200, or 250.

That is what I was afraid of. As they get more HD only people hopefully in the future they will change it.

No!

The HD only package is called HD Absolute.

HD Ultimate is the top package that you CAN add RSN's to.

All you need is to sub to AT100+ or higher with HD Ultimate your HD RSN will be added automatically.

This would mean I would be spending $42.99 for the one channel I want, which wouldn't be practical. Hopefully Dish will change this in the future.

NO, NO, NO!

AT100+ with HD Ultimate plus locals is $62.99 per month, plus fees, fees, feses, you 'll be lucky to escape with $80-85 per month.

$42.99 is just the cost of AT100+ with locals - no receiver lease fees, no DVR fees.

That's why I switched from AT100 + locals +HD ULtimate to the HD Absolute Package plus locals - $34.99 and I get ALL the National Hd channels - No RSN's allowed at this time, but I don't see RSN's as all that whoopie!

Saved myself over $25 per month and I get all the HD channels I 'd get with AT250 (except movie channels - but I have Cinemax for 0.01 per year for 2 years anyway).

I you got that in writing!

I tried to get 1 year of Cinemax for auto-pay plus 1 year for paperless billing and was told I had to do both to get the 1 year...
