    You honestly think anyone would have know that . LOL!
    I would say unless its in the Latino pack,and you have a slimine 5 , No you can't just add it without the international Dish.

    for a new account, i know its international

    direct sat already messed up the order that i already installled, they lied to them. I had them cancel

    They had also signed up through directv but they screwed that up also and gave wrong price.

    Im trying to setup an account that is actually right for them. Already have dish up from first install. Would just need to add the international dish yet.

    But i want to give the cx the correct price, online it says you have to order the entire filipino package as well as english base package.

    Problem is that directv told the cx they could just add TFC channel only, which i believe is a lie.

    Apparently no one knows anything then, got it!

    Go to directv's website, click on packages, go to the international section, click on Filipino.

    You have to get at least the basic choice package in order to get TFC.

    Again no issues here. I do also delete cookies from time to time. Again I'm having no trouble viewing your requests off of Directv .com.

    I gave you a phone number which you must call to do anything with international anyway. You can't order international through the website.

    A base package is required in conjunction with all International packages. Basic Choice and Preferred Choice are packages designed to meet that requirement for International customers that don't want a conventional American or Spanish base package.

    The three Filipino packages (Filipino Direct, TFC Direct and Pinoy Direct) listed on the bottom half of the page that you pictured in post #9.

    The operators at the toll-free number speak Filipino.

    Here's a link that speaks to the basic package requirement:

    Correct as in previous post. I have the Direct Pinoy package at $24.99, because it has TFC and Eat Bulaga. I just switched from the Entertainment package to Basic Choice (alot cheaper), because I hardly watched anything in the Entertainment package. Have had the Preffered Package more recently and found it okay.

    Just for your info, I also have ROKU and the Filipino package. That has Channel 5 and a news station, plus 11 free channels of non-Filipino channels, but at least they are English speaking. Dishworld.com currently offering a "special", a free ROCU when you pay for 4 months of the service. That comes to around $68. plus tax.
