    Ripoff? How about the measly Cinemax channels at what they are charging. Thanks but no thanks. Most places bundle HBO and Cinemax. Not Directv.

    Back when I first got DirecTV, the Encore channels were included in the top Total Choice package, and while it's for an extra fee, I LIKE that DirecTV is now offering this.

    At this point in time, I can't justify going to Total Choice Ultimate from Total Choice Plus, but if DirecTV adds more HD simulcasts of the premiums, I may indeed be interested.

    I simply said I thought it was interesting that the page stated that it had 10 more HD channels than Total Choice Xtra... and commented that of the 11 premium channels this package adds, only 1 of them is currently available in HD... so where do they get the additional 10 HD channels?

    Either it's a mistake which is very probable given the other mistakes on the page, or perhaps DirecTV intends on adding HD versions of those channels.

    Wishful thinking... nothing more...

    You only get the encore tmc/sundance channels with ultimate over choice extra so if you wanted starz you would go to choice extra and add starz. Right? Or then you would miss the TMC/Sundance? I feel like I'm the only one whos missing something. :confused:

    Actually, Sundance would be included with the Starz package as well.

    So the only difference with Total Choice Plus/Extra over Total Choice Ultimate is The Movie Channel (E&W) and some MusicTap channels.

    However, for those who don't want to shell out $11(?) for the Starz package, you can pay $5 extra and get 11 extra movie channels.

    I just bought into the Choice Ultimate package, mainly to offset the price increase and to get additional Sonic Tap channels. I only subscribed to Starz Super Pack for the Encore channels anyway, so having the Starz channels didn't do much for me anyways. So, even after the HD Access and DVR being separate fees, now my bill is back down to where it was before the price increases, so I'm happy. Thanks DirecTV :)

    Thats partially true. If you call them today and ask they can give you HBO and MAX in a 2 for 1 deal for 3 months lol. I know its only 3 months but if you want it call and ask for it.
