I currently have DirecTV, paying about $70/mo for the CHOICE package and I'm out of my contract with DirecTV. I have a very simple set up. I just have the one SD receiver in the living room, I have that split off to run to my bedroom and office via coax cable. I can only watch one channel, but this doesn't bother me since I can't be in the living room and the office at the same time. I rarely even watch TV in the office or bedroom, so having it split is not a big deal for me. I have an old CRT TV in the living room, it doesn't support HD, so when I ordered DirecTV several years ago, I had no reason to get the HD receiver. I'm considering getting a new flat screen TV for the living room, that will support HD. If I upgraded my DirecTV to an HD receiver, what all would that cost me? Is there an extra fee just for enabling HD content? I don't really want to pay more than the $70/mo that I'm already paying. I don't really have the need for a DVR or the Genie receiver. I suppose having the ability to record a show might be nice, but if the Genie receiver is going to add on to my monthly fee, then I'm not interested in it. Can I upgrade through DirecTV to get a new HD receiver? Will having the HD receiver increase my monthly cost? I figure I'll have to reup my contract with DirecTV, which isn't a problem as long as the pricing stays the same. Or would I be better off buying an HD receiver from Ebay or something and purchasing a new card from DirecTV (I think that's a one time $20 fee?) Currently I'm paying about $65 for the CHOICE package. My bill has a $6 receiver rent fee, but then has a -$6 fee to counter the receiver fee. The rest of the fees are taxes, doesn't quite add up to $70, but pretty close. I figured real-world experience on this forum might be better than what customer service representatives might try to sell me.
