ESPN and ESPN2 are in Entertainment and up.

 

ESPNews, ESPNU, and NFL Network are in Choice and up.

 

The NFL Sunday Ticket is a add-on seasonal sports subscription. This is only for out of market games. The in-market games would show on your local channels. As a note, if you are below Choice then the NFL Sunday Ticket would also provide you the NFL Channel (during the season only).

 

So a package change would not be $200 difference. Most likely they were quoting (approximately) the cost of the NFL Sunday Ticket itself.

Hey, @amy_johnson42. We'd be glad to help you look into our TV packages.

 

Thanks to @Constructive, @sandblaster, and @Juniper for the useful information!

 

As they said, adding the programming you're wanting shouldn't cost $200 more a month. As long as you have a high enough package you should be getting ESPN, and for out of market games you can purchase the NFL Sunday Ticket package in installments for $48.99 a month for 6 months. Let us know what package you have, and all the programs you're interested in so we can help you choose the right packages!

What programming package do you have? You do not add individual channels. You add those channels by switching to a program package that includes them. That shouldn’t cost $200. You can also change your programming package yourself online.
