Cable/Dish Deals in Long Beach?
Just moved to Long Beach, going to need to order cable. Does anyone know of any good deals out there now? DirecTV or cable? I only really care about basketball and hockey, no need for any of the premium channels.

Don't know if you care about pro basketball or college basketball, but Directv does not carry the PAC12 Network

If you go with Direct, PM me before you call them and I'll give you my account number so we BOTH can knock $10 off our bill for 10 months.

My work pays for my internet, so I only need cable. How is the quality/service of charter?

I cant remember if NHL Network and NBCSN are part of the Extra package or not. I think NHL Network is part of the CI package. I've had the same package now for like 7 years so you would probably be better off checking their site.
I have the 220 Ultimate package, HD package, HBO Package, Sports Pkg and CI. The Sports Pak has a BOAT LOAD of sports channels but most live events are blacked out if you dont have a season package like CI or Sunday Ticket.
All in all, I have probably close to 350 channels. But I also pay out the arse for it.

Looks like NHL Network is standard in Ultimate and Premier only. NBCSN is standard in Extra, Ultimate and Premier. So to get both, at minimum, you would have to get Ultimate.
To be honest, the Ultimate Package is the best bang for your buck. Depending on how many receivers you get and add on packages, you could probably keep your monthly bill around a C-note. Im close to $175 a month during the hockey off season and $200 for 4 months during the season for CI. Its expensive but meh, its just money and I can watch my Kings from the east coast.

Yea, looks like the cheapest package with NHL Network and NBC SN is the one that is $44.99/month. Comes with NFL Sunday Ticket and a "Free Genie" but you still have to pay $15/month extra for the DVR service. So it will be around $60/month or so.

Sure thing. I'll PM it to you later today when I get home from work.
I dont see a package on their website for $44. Must be a regional thing maybe.

The Ultimate package is $44.99 (or $39.99, there is some other $5 off promotion). Could be regional?

A 2-year agreement is annoying, but looks like that is the new thing that all companies are trying to do.
