As I posted yesterday, my June 1 bill for services for the period of June 17 - July 16 showed no increases. Do you have an increased bill?

Got it. I didn't look there this morning, but I see what they're doing. The thing to remember is that prior to August 2009, HD cost $10/mo. I'm going to post more over in the Free HD for life? is it so. thread.

What isn't posted in that thread is that DISH telegraphed the additional price hike back in Feb when they used "no package price increase in the first quarter" instead of "no package price increase this year". People opened threads about a 2nd increase but they all got locked (as speculative) before I ever noticed them to reply.

No in the Thread the talk about the price increase to AT200 and AT 250 and the premimums are talked about. Those comments my be hard to find but there is about 2 pages worth of discussion on the price increase on the package's and the effect of dropping HD with and without Platinum.
