1. You can upgrade to the next level (Choice Xtra) which has NBC Sports, and DirectTV billing will prorate to the day. The additional package is 5 bucks a month. So I am just going to upgrade on the day of the game when they play on NBC Sports and then downgrade after the game. It will cost 16 cents per game.

2. There is also the option of adding a 'Sports Package' which contains ROOT, Universal, YES, MSG, etc for only 13 bucks a month. Does anybody have any experience with this? Is it the whole MSG family (MSG+ and MSG+2)? Since the Isles play on that family of networks, I could pay 13 a month and be able to get the Isles, Knicks, and Yankees instead of the incremental value of each package (which is like 50 bucks a month for each). But, if it is strictly MSG and not MSG+/2, then it is obviously not an option. Anybody have any idea here?
Games will be blacked out if you dont have the package.
