I was just seeing if there is interest to try to bring back this package. Granted it was 7500 but to have EVERY channel would be awesome.:D

LOL simply not going to happen.

When they were running that package, it was shortly after stopping access card pirating (2006) and they thought they could exploit the fallout from pirates withdrawling from having everything. At a breakdown of $625/mth it just simply didn't work to their advantage and it was shortly discontinued.

Truthfully the 24/7 concierge service included wasn't anything more than a glorified customer service rep answering the phone and transfering you to technical support just as with any other customer. They didn't have 24/7 truck rolls.

Just FYI, they still have their web link still active for the description albeit the subscribe link is inactive and points to an unsetup apache server link. you can view what there is here:

Well if not that then how about an all everything sports where you get NFL NHL mlb soccer everything for 1 payment every year and get rid of this calling up every 3 months because a new sport starts up. I'd pay like 1000 or so for that.

Can't you just call in once for pretty much each add-on sports package, and they auto-renew every season unless you interfere with the process?

Yes I'm under auto renewal but you have to go thru hell to get the price you want. I am just thinking out loud that this might be a better and may I say easier and more welcome way to loyal customers. The reason for the titanium package was to make it easy on those that wanted it.

I have called about it but they say they do not have it and I can just order when things come out. Plus I found out that it was a great price because of 2 things ppv and xxx shows. It would not be worth it if you didn't watch xxx all the time.

I head it was to give a price for all channels + ALL PPV (with no blackouts) so that in court they will have price that each access card pirating costs them.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

I'd pay for every sports package if it came out all at once say TAX time hint hint. I can afford to pay for it now but when august comes around I do not buy NBA and NCAA packages.

Just being able to turn on the TV to see that you do not have 1 single channel that you can not see would be awesome. This package would be a single persons dream.

Just a heads up, you can already buy NFL ST Max for next season. Would be nice if they allowed it for all sports packages.

That is for next season thanks. I'll go look at it next month after I get my tax refund.
To the grandfather comment I know you tell the truth but for a person that never had this contract I can't get it.

Grandfather packages are for people on a specific package when it is no longer offered. If you're on the package, you get to keep it. That package can't be added to an account after it is no longer available(unless being reinstated shortly after being removed).

The package was offered a few years ago for 7,500 but now it would cost probably 10,000.

Probably true. I doubt they will ever offer anything like it again though, as nice as it would be.
