Anyway, back to the original question of whether this extra fee is fair to long time subscribers... I would be more inclined to pay $12 a month for all HD combined then $10 + $5 with the $5 being for a handful of channels that I don't really watch that much. I would still feel cheated that they were removed to another tier. I hope the HD NET complaint will delay this or at least change D*s mind on this tiering. I've always thought it was a senseless money grab. Sort of like the Maryland State Legislature sticking it to us residents with huge tax increases this past week.
