Yes, that is what it says. Like I said, it probably technically qualifies as being notified, but I think it should have actually said in the email that there will be an increase in the rsn fee. I shouldn't have to click on a link to find that information. I see there are already some that are gleeful. What a surprise.
Stude...thanks for being open about this. Appreciate it. Yes, the letter and email talk about the reasons for the price increase and get into a number of other things but specific pricing information is all in the insert \ website equivalent PDF that has been shown here at DBS Talk a number of times. Both the letter and email say for complete details see the enclosed (bill insert) or links to it in the case of the email for all the details. All pricing details are found on that document for anything that receives an increase.
So everyone can see, the link below is what the the letter looks like. The email version is identical except the border treatments are a little different, but the copy content is the exact same thing with the exception of one line difference...the last sentence in paragraph 4. Instead of saying "the enclosed insert includes complete details on programming pricing" (in the letter version), the email says "Click here for more complete details" (since it's impossible to "enclose" the bill insert into an email). The hyperlink links to the same bill insert in PDF format for those customers. That's the only change between letter and email. I believe the subject line for the email is something like IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DIRECTV ACCOUNT or something to the effect. On the letter, the outside of the envelope says something very similar.
Hope that helps. Stude was very cool on this and I appreciate it. As mentioned prior, D* takes this stuff seriously and must inform every customer of any pricing changes. http://i47.tinypic.com/20jicep.jpg
