Obviously you have compared the two lists and found a discrepiency. Your next step should be a call to D*, who should be able to answer your question.

Channels on Ultimate and not on extra

SD
1. CBS College Sports
2. Encore
3. Encore West
4. Encore Action
5. Encore Drama
6. Encore Love
7. Encore Mystery
8. Encore WAM
9. Encore Westerns
10. Sonic Tap - Holidays and Happenings
11. Sonic Tap - Italian Bistro
12. Sonic Tap - Tranquility
13. Sundance
14. TMC West
15. TMC East

HD
1. CBS College Sports
2. TMC East


Ultimate has 49 HD Channels and Extra has 47 HD Channels. Therefore them stating that Ultimate has 45+ and Extra has 40+ are both accruate statements.
