I am thinking about signing up for Sunday Ticket and DirecTV. Somehwhere I read on a forum that you can drop TotalChoice after the free period to FamilyChoice, $29.99 a month. But I can not find it. I will be getting hardware and it seems all of the hardware requirements are keeping a $29.99 or higher package. I can't find where it specifies that you have to keep TotalChoice. I have read many, many posts here that it is a rip off that DirecTV requires you to have TotalChoice. But I question if this is really true. Can anyone shed some light. Thanks!
