You have a package from when multiple had "Choice" in the name (Choice, Choice Xtra, Choice Ultimate). They minimized that naming confusion.

Currently packages are: Family, Select, Entertainment, Choice, Xtra (or Preferred Xtra if you watch little to no sports), Ultimate, Premier.

Your package is the equivilent of Xtra. The Choice Xtra Classic was to keep channels like Cloo, Chiller, and SoapNet for cheaper than newer customers having to be in Ultimate. As those channels no longer exist (shut down by their respective owners), Choice Xtra Classic is no longer a good value.

This is the channel lineup overview to help you decide on what level best fits what you enjoy: Packages & Channel Lineup

Where is the lineup for "Choice Extra Classic?"

Why isn't it with the other packages?

Choice Xtra Classic is grandfathered, so thus it is no longer able to be subscribed to today. If you decide to change your package from Choice Xtra Classic to a modern one (Family, Select, Entertainment, Choice, Xtra, Ultimate, Premier) then you may not be able to resubscribe to Choice Xtra Classic.

There is no longer an up-to-date detailed channel lineup for it since it is grandfathered (unless you want to look at one from several years ago online as there are several PDF files available for viewing).
