    Because of channel packaging and the way Directv has to get rights to use the channels from owners.

    The greedy sob's don't like to publicize the "in between" packages. I was told by one CSR "you can subscribe to any D* package, you just have to find them".

    The Preferred Choice at $32.99 is listed as an "International" package, but it should also be available for any D* subscriber.

    Its more just a compromise between what consumers want and what is economical/required in each package level as there are premium channels that cost more than others, plus channels that certain media coalitions will want put in if you have any one of their channels (sort of all or nothing type deal).

    The fact is the packages change a lot overtime and it is just finding what suits you best. For me, TC+ (or Choice Xtra as it is now) fits me perfect.
