    Did Directv eliminate the Extra package? Your options go from Choice to Ultimate.

    It shows up for me, right between Choice and Ultimate. Did you remember to log out first so you can see all the packages?

    ChoiceExtra is missing from the new subscriber page on the DTV website. The Family package is now listed as an available package for $29. The Family package is not worth $29.
    Comcast offers an Economy Package for $29 that includes :
    AMC, A&E, CNN, CARTOON NETWORK, COMEDY CENTRAL, FOX NEWS, ANIMAL PLANET, DISNEY, USA, DISCOVERY, HISTORY, LIFETIME, E!, FOOD NETWORK, TRUTV, TV LAND, + other channels

    I am not signed in. Currently using the Premier Package.
    The listings I see are:
    Family, Entertainment, Choice, Ultimate and Premiere
    50 140 150 225 285

    Edit: Now I am logged in and it shows,
    Entertainment, Choice, Extra, Ultimate and Premiere
    140 150 205 225 285

    Strange !

    Just exchanged IM's with DirecTV. For new subscribers, the Extra package is no longer available as of today.

    Weird, it depends on what zip code you put in as to whether Extra shows up under packages. I cleared the cookies and put in the zip code for Hollywood, CA and it did NOT show Extra as an available package. I cleared the cookies again and put in my zip code in the Midwest and it DID show Extra. Could it be that Extra is being phased out by area???

    It's interesting that DTV is "bringing back" the Family Package-a totally WORTHLESS waste of money IMHO (unless you have kids). I also noticed that the new DTV glossy flyers with the newspaper list Family as $24.95 for new subs but point out that you can't get a free Genie with that package. I think with everyone tightening their belts and abandoning cable, both DISH and DTV are highlighting their most inexpensive package in advertising. (DISH is still pushing some package for $19.95 with free HD for life). I would assume it is also a waste of money like Family.
