    Can someone tell me what the price comparison is between HBO and Showtime? I have looked everywhere online and can't find it. I am paying for HBO and getting free Max but it will end in a couple of days. I checked my account and it just says $27. That doesn't seem right. I want to keep Max and maybe go to either Showtime or Starz which is only $10, probably Showtime (they have more HD channels).
    Does anyone know where i can compare premium channels on an individual basis? thanks.

    Per DirecTV website: HBO $17.99 per month, Cinemax $12.99 per month, Showtime $12.99 per month, Starz $12.99 per month. The price is less if you combine them.

    Thanks, but where on the website is it? So if i cancel HBO, keep Max, and get Showtime (which shows $10.00) it will be about $21.00 instead of $27.00?
    Every time i go to the DirecTV website i don't see the individual prices.
    Looks like i have to call to cancel HBO. Should i tell them i want to cancel HBO but add Showtime, or do i cancel HBO using the automatic teller, then go to my account online to add Showtime for $10.00?

    Thanks, but that didn't help. Because i'm getting HBO and Max it says i'm already subscribed.

    Go to DirecTV's home page. Near the top of the screen you will see "Packages". Slide the cursor onto it. A menu will appear below with the "Premium Networks". Below that you will see the selections for HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, and Starz. Click on any of them to view pricing.

    I have been doing that but it says already subscribed for HBO and Max. So no pricing. But anyways, i want to cancel HBO and keep Max and get Showtime for $10.00. When i call DirecTV, is there a number to call without talking Live? I want to cancel it and go online where i can click on my account which says $10.00 for Showtime.
    I presume getting Max and Showtime will save me about $6 because HBO is non dis-countable at $17.99.

    As long as you don't log into your account you will see pricing for Premium Networks as I described. When you log into your account it will then tell you if your already subscribed. Give DirecTV a call. When asked what you want to do say"change packages". That will get you to a CSR.

    I didn't log in, but it still shows i'm logged in without the password whenever i go to the Home page of DirecTV.
    I will call and hopefully get a CSR........then go online to add Showtime.
    Thanks for all your help.

    Click "Not You?" and it will clear your info from the website. Then you can view full pricing.
