Just wanted to see if the sports package should be included in the Extreme HD package in Red Bank, NJ(07701)
Looks like you need to order Sports package. It's looking like most of North NJ does not get Sports package included with HDExtreme.

OK, 08550 is looking like you are supposed to get the sports package included with ExtremeHD.
Please don't send me any more PM's about this for right now. I will PM you if I see that you should have it. Just post your ZIP and town/city.
NOTE: Odds are if you are in North NJ/NY, you don't get Sports package included with HD Extreme.

Stay in bed. =P
I'm doing more verification of this than anything. There are some customers reporting that they are not getting sports when they should in middle/lower NJ so I need to go and see what I can find. I thought the turnpike was the divider, boy was I wrong!

I actually have a sports package that includes stuff like GolTV, various Fox Sports channels (Atlantic, etc), NFL network and NHL network.
That's what is so darn confusing ... is there ANOTHER sports package?
Charles H ... sorry for opening this can of worms. The only reason I'm asking is because i get the MLB network in standard def (channel 86), but not in high-def (586).

When we refer to SPORTS PACKAGE, we are looking at the channels in the following range (may change slightly depending on your "market")...300-319.
There is another group of sports channels located between 70-94, but MOST of them are included in the essentials package and/or the HD Extreme package.
To answer your question more specifically, the MLB channel is in the mix I described above, but 586 would require HD EXTREME. Sports shouldnt have anything to do with it. Does it say NOT SUBSCRIBED or CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE? Also, are you getting other channels around those two?
