Starz/showtime deal for $12.95?
Posted 23 March 2013 - 07:17 AM
I was logged into my account on DirecTV's website and noticed Starz and Showtime have a $12.95 a month deal. Now I have the choice package with HBO and Showtime added on as extra. HBO and Showtime look like it adds $29 to the package price. That seems pretty high to me. You think I can delete Showtime off there and add the Starz / Showtime deal and end up paying the same (or less) but now get more for the money?
The bill comes out to around $125 - $130 a month for HDDVR and an additional HD box and MRV. It seems pretty high to me and I even have a refer a friend credit. Any way I can stretch the value and get more for that price would be nice.
I guess since I'm off contract now the $10 credit for auto bill pay & paperless no longer applies either.

Each time my credit for the HD service runs out I call them and ask about it and usually get it anywhere from 12 months to 6 months at a time.
