I don't have cable, but I do have a DSS Satellite. About a year and a half ago I found a way to delete channels from my view list that I didn't want to pay for in order to view. I deleted the slot that held OLN (Outdoor Life Network) because it was part of a package that included the golf channel and some other sports channels. I really didn't want to pay for Golf Network and others just to view OLN.
Thursday night I decided to order OLN regardless of the package that it was part of. I had heard that OLN was going to carry full coverage of the Tour de France in July, and I really wanted to see it. I started looking for the number to my satellite provider and couldn't find it. I undeleted on my channel list a few sports information channels and the OLN so I could see the channel when I got it. Come to find out, OLN had been part of my basic channel package for who knows how long. The first night I was able to watch a show called Bike Magazine and a show about mountain biking. Late this morning I watched the time Trials for Giro d'Italia (live). Jan Ullrich (Deutsche Telekom) is awesome! He didn't come in first for the time trial, but I think he will do really well in the race. BTW, he won a gold medal last year at the Olympics in Sydney.
If you don't have OLN, you really must find a way to get it. This channel is awesome!
