Just before the package changes there were some suggesting last minute changes from Total Choice Plus to Choice Extra. I didn't do it and it looks like it was a wise move.

Would not have made any difference if you had. They both got renamed to Choice Extra Classic at the same price.

I moved from Ultimate to Choice Xtra before the increase so I could get locked into the grandfathered package and save a little money to offset the increase.

I think some people moved upgraded from Total Choice to Xtra to get Classic.

I went to down to Choice to offset the increases. I'll do without a few stations.
Weird, every time I start seriously thinking about switching to HD DTV, they raise rates and I get upset and stick to my old R15, crummy picture, but I'll live with it.

The first 3 months were dirt cheap. Then went up about $20. I can not remember all the steps. But I know the first 14 months had discounted prices. Then the last 10 months had the full price.
