    Seems reasonable. I assume this replaces the normal fee for not maintaining a base package?

    I'm a little confused... just spoke to a Dish CRS over the phone and she had no
    idea what price increase/decrease I was talking about? (she and her supervisor
    probably didn't get the memo?) :confused:

    if I currently subscribe to Russian Mega pack, the monthly feel will be $10
    cheaper... but then a $10 int'l access fee will be added on? doesn't that
    mean I'll end up paying the same monthly fee? :confused:

    Is there anything in the world more confusing than the DishNetwork pricing structure?

    So...if I have a US package, but want to add Eurochannel, it's now $19/month? Or is this for folks who don't have a US package?

    I don't have a problem with a $2 increase in the German Pack, but I hope that includes more accurate Guide Data for the channels. Yes I know they probably get it from a third party, but they need to work with their suppliers to improve it.

    the only other industry with a more confusing pricing structure is the airlines... :D

    it is now Nov 12 and there doesn't appear to be any increase/decrease on the int'l channels.... a CSR on Dish's online chat still has no idea what I'm talking about... I even sent her the link to this thread... :)

    The extra $10 charge for internationals should only be if one does not have a base package. Any US package should qualify.

    James, I don't think this is correct.

    I have Top 250 package with locals along with The Greek Elite Package. The price on my Greek Elite Package dropped $ 10.00 from $ 34.99 to $ 24.99, but I still get charged the $ 10.00 International Access fee.
