280-284 Boston or 287-291 Seattle depending on your location (east or west).

A quick poll.

I live out west and opted not to pay the extra buck for the extra Eastern feed because earlier show times do not benefit me much. I know... it is only $1 but I am pretty cheap.

I am assuming the most people would have opted for the extra feed for $1, am I right?

I didn't order it but I do have it. I have the total tv combo plus the HD pack so it must come with one of those packages. I must say it's great, I don't think I could go without timeshifting.

I have it too, but I find timeshifting to be more useful in the west than the east. Nothing like watching Leno at 8:35 or 9:35 instead of 11:35.

You are correct. Before today I did not subscribe to any of the networks. After activating my 9200 and adding the HDTV package to my line-up Bell gave me BOTH the HD Networks as well as the normal SD ones in the 280's as part of the $10/mo HDTV package fee.

That's true grinder, but no PVR in the world can show you something that hasn't aired yet.
