The $10 jump for AT120 + shows the influence of sports. AT120 and AT200 go up $5 and the middle package goes up $10.
I don't know... I would agree with you IF all the packages above that (AT200, AT250) went up $10... but they didn't.
The price difference between AT120 and AT200 is still $15 pre and post price increase.
What has changed is AT120+ is now almost the same price as AT200.
What that indicates to me... is... that Dish doesn't want you to subscribe to AT120+. Instead, if you wanted AT120+ for the sports, they want you to go ahead and spend $5 more and get AT200.
I think Dish maybe wants to do away with the AT120+ package by making it less attractive to stay on that tier by giving it more of a price increase.
The $15 increase on AEP probably then is a $5 split for the regular increase on all packages + another $10 to account for the premium price increases that I think happened earlier.
