This idea so tempted me that I just did it!!
Sure enough, all kinds of double-talk and discounts but after wading through them all there was no mention anywhere about a REGIONAL SPORTS FEE at checkout even though PRIOR to my last bill it was there! So they MUST have changed my ZIP code to not have the fee anymore.
My biggest laugh was that I told the website I only had 1 TV but wanted a Genie. It cheerfully charged me a $25 "advanced receiver fee" which when highlighting the question mark told me that whole home service was included!
I also noted that their way of giving "free HD" was a so-called $10 discount for the first 24 months.
EDIT: Apologies, just realized I was responding to a message about a year old.
I just did it, says Regional Sports Fee may apply. You have to choose CHOICE package or above since Entertainment and Select do not have RSNs, thus no Sports Fee.
It comes up right at step 1 when you choose your package after you put in your zip code.
Here's a screen shot...the regional sports fee is there at the bottom and appears on any package selection that is CHOICE or above.
