Although, you should call to see if you can get the free HD with your current package. I have your same package and if I wasn't already receiving an HD credit from last year, they would have given me the 2 year free HD credit. Supposedly, when my old credit ends in Sept, I can call and they will add it for me then.

I've been poking around online and since the site does not actually "compare" packages, just clutters the page with the channels so you have to sort it out, this is what I see as the differences.
Choice +HD/DVR (79.99) vs Choice Extra (63.99)
1. No Channel Difference that I could see
2. HD included in Choice + ($10 add on for Choice)
3. DVR included in Choice + ($7 add on for Choice)
So to change to Choice and add HD and DVR it will cost $1 more than someone who is "grandfathered" with Choice +HD/DVR. Only problem is that you may not be able to add or drop the HD extra pack without changing.
The differences between Choice + HD/DVR (79.99) and Choice Ulitmate (68.99)are
1. HD included in Choice + ($10 add on for Ultimate)
2. DVR included in Choice + ($7 add on for Ultimate)
3 15 extra channels in Ultimate (9 Encore, 1 Sonic Tap, 2 Sundance, 3 Movie Channel) (no price, since no way to add)
In the end if you called the 15 extra channels worth $0 (for argument sake) Then The difference between the two packages is $6. If the added value of those 15 channels is worth $6 or more, then upgrading from Choice + HD/DVR to Ultimate and adding HD and DVR would be worth it, otherwise it wouldn't be.
So, I'm going to stay with Choice +HD/DVR
