New $1.99 Sports HD pack charge, starting Feb. 1st

Yes, I just found this out lastnight, when talking to a StarChoice rep, about another sports HD channel question I had. I was only told about the $1.99 charge starting Feb. 1st, but she failed to tell me that I wouldn't have to pay this, since I'm part of one of the "plus" packages already, that they mention.

I'll have to watch my bill, to make sure I'm charged right.

I'm waiting for Leafs TV in HD, to come to StarChoice. I was watching it on Rogers before, and I miss the HD broadcast. They say they are looking into pricing, and hoping to come up with something soon.

I'm sure you'll have to order the package even though it won't cost you anything, it won't be automatic.

CNN HD

I see CNN HD is now available- thatw ould be nice, as most of the time (during the day) that's where my box is tuned.

I can honestly say that during the 'primetime' hours I dont even go into the SD channels anymore.

I know some counter that these 'upconverted' channels are a waste of bandwidth, but in my opinion, even a lower quality HD picture is better that some of the SD channels!

If you are switching for HD then that offer is very limited. Essentials starts at $36 plus, plus.

No, *C doesn't have it, but Rogers does. I'd take it. TLC HD would also be good.

Has anyone tried to order the TSN/RSW package using the instructions in the viewer mail - i.e. go to starchoice.com/hdsports? Don't bother - I'm told the website won't be able to process it until after Feb. 1...

I think it's pretty likely that we'll see two more HD channel added by February so they can keep the number of free HD the same. CTVWest and City are possible, though I can think of better ways to fill 2/3 of a TP.
