    Just curious about this since I have the Choice Xtra Classic Package. If you have the Ultimate Package, which includes all of the Encore Channels, do you get a discount on Starz? It would seem that you shouldn't have to pay the full Starz price since you're already paying for 8 of the 15 channels with your base package.

    No you don't get a discount.

    Ultimate also gives you (Directv.com)
    TMC East and West
    Fox Movie Channel
    NHL
    Style
    Cloo
    Chiller
    Boomerang
    Sprout
    Sundance
    and maybe a few other music channels that still have nothing to do with Starz/encore.
    My guess is that's more of where the cost between Choice Extra and Choice Ultimate is coming from then Encore.

    I have had this argument with them a few times as well. Why pay for the Encore channels in the Ultimate Package and then pay for them again if you decide you want Starz. I didn't get it then and I don't get it now. Since I usually have Starz with my programming I refuse to carry the Ultimate Package.

    That's Fine I see your point and yes IMO if you have the Ultimate pack they should only charge you $6 extra to add Starz.

    But for a customer who wants to upgrade from choice extra and can't afford an Extra $13 per month, Ultimate is a good choice and good Value.
    If any of these channels below intrest anyone, they can be added for $7
