Is sportschannel a premium channel or part of the basic cable package,
or does it vary depending on the cable company?
If it is a premium channel, how much does it cost per month?

It completely depends on the cable company.  Cablevison owns
Sportschannel, and has it as a basic channel on their Cablevision
Boston franchise.  However, on my cable system (Heritage in
Andover, MA), it's premium for $8.95 a month.

As an interesting aside, Cablevision is trying to move ESPN from
basic to part of a premium tier, and ESPN is threatening to pull
its signal from Cablevision franchises if they do so.  This is
happening as EPSN starts their huge baseball coverage.
