For no particular reason I feel compelled to warn those with Total Choice Plus to keep Total Choice Plus. No matter how you crunch the numbers, its a better deal, because with Total Choice Plus, you can subscribe to Starz/Encore, and if you dont want it during the summer for example, you can drop it. Once you lock in to Ultimate, you'll never be able to go back to TC+.
Now, if they start adding new HD channels this summer, and only add them to the Ultimate package, but NOT the Total Choice + package, then things might be different.
I was going to bite myself, until I realized I would lose several HD movies channels (Im currently subbing to TC+ and the Starz/Encore pack) by switching. I would save $5 or so, but lose all the Starz HD channels, and gain ONE TMC East HD channel. To get the Starz channels back, I would have to pay for Encore twice.
