    My monthly bill is $191 outside of football season. Add an extra $50 to that during football season for NFL Sunday Ticket.

    What is the "Basic Choice" Plan? Lowest I can find is the Family Pack, but if I could just get locals I would be HAPPY!


    Family Pack $29.99
    HD: $10
    DVR: $8

    Referral Credit: -$10.00

    Basic choice is an English add-on that is only available if you have an international base package. Family is the lowest english base package DirecTV offers.

    I watch the same channels I did back then. I remember when HBO used to send you a pocket TV guide with all the movies showing that month. It was faster to read over to see what you wanted to watch compared to what we have now

    MTV had commercials from the beginning (well, okay, 10 minutes after they started broadcasting in 1981): here's an article describing their first hour of programming, with YouTube clips.
