I'm confused. So is the consensus that we need to upgrade to Choice Ultimate if we have Choice Xtra with HDDVR service? Or can we temporarily change it to another package and then change it back to Choice Xtra after the flag is set?
No, there is a legacy package called 'Choice Xtra plus HDDVR' If (and I think only if) you have this package, you will probably have to change it to
-) Add HD Access
-) Add DVR Access
In other words, 3 line items on your statement instead of a single line item.
The cost is $1/month more in unbundled form than in bundled (legacy) form. Otherwise, they are the same package.
