Re: How do I get my 'Bonus' channel?

I want to change my bonus channel


I have tried several times to change my bonus channel online.  I have had this TV package for some time now and I have not had success when trying to change the bonus channel.  The page to do so online just crashes.  What channels can I choose from as I understand there are limited choices available.

@Kim17 : It looks like your post was moved to this existing thread on the topic.  See post 20 for the list of  bonus channels. If the bonus channel page crashes when you're trying to choose/change, you may wish to PM the Community Helps people here. See link below on how to do that.
