    Right now here's what I got:

    Basic Choice $14.99
    International $14.99
    HD $10
    DVR $8
    Showtime 6 months free
    Starz 6 months free
    HD Extra Pack 3 months free

    Less:
    $10 off package
    $8 off DVR

    Subtotal: $30.00 per month

    Referral $10 off
    2nd refer $10 off

    Final total: $10 per month

    If I add my 2nd owned box (HR21P), then it goes up $6 or $9 (with whole home).

    I also have a $300 credit balance on my account from equipment/retention,
    should last me for almost a year of free service after the referrals end.

    FYI, I only watch the local channels since I don't get antenna reception.

    Anyone paying similar or better? I can't believe that some people pay $150 to $300 for TV service.

    I doubt the ride will last forever. At some point, many of the freebies and discounts will end and D* won't want to give you any more.

    My bill is >$150 per month even with a few discounts. But I mainly watch movies and sports.

    If true, hopefully those members have disclosed that fact in their signature line.
