I tried dropping the MYX channel yesterday and just keep prefered choice. The csr said nothing about having to change my programming to choice so I dropped it. Then when I was looking at my online account it had switched me to choice. I called back up ASAP and had it put back the way it was with MYX & prefered choice. The csr said when you remove Int. program it automaticaly puts you in choice unless you specify a specific package.
I am not getting any of the choice channels. I also had the CSR read everything on my account with pricing and everything was correct. Maybe I just got lucky.

I will see if MYX comes back next month. If it does, I am not going to go crazy because I guess you're supposed to have it in order to have the preferred choice package. Doesn't hurt to try and drop it though.

For some of you who are having trouble getting the international preferred choice + MYX combo, you might want to try again or just add another international option and see if it's possible to drop that channel add-on at a later date.
My base package for Directv costs $35.99 and includes ESPN and ESPN2 which are the two channels I was most interested in. I also wanted my RSN so I had to add on the sports pack. So my total bill with 2 HD DVRs and one standard HD receiver and HD access comes out to $72 a month. After the baseball season I will probably drop the sports pack which will put my bill around $60 a month....good deal if you ask me!
