I've been a Premier sub since '99 and I've stayed with that pkg after looking into different scenarios to downgrade. I found that, if I want to keep certain movie channels, ie, Starz pack, etc, that I wouldn't save much $$'s per month by downgrading my Premier pkg. I haven't looked at the price structures recently though.

The other reason that I've stayed with Premier is that the "Sportspack" is included in the pkg, as well as all of the "SonicTap" music channels.

Thanks, St Louis Cardinals Fan, with the 24 month offer of free HD, I changed to the premier package.
Since I am not signed up for bill pay, I did receive 6 months @$10.00, sctually when all credits were applied, I will receive $25.00 credit for 90 days, and after the 90 days are up, I will receive $20.00 for 90 days.

Depends on your how many rooms you have.
