I've been off contract since January. I have one HD-DVR. That is the only receiver in the house. I subscribe to "Choice Extra Classic" (grandfathered), with no premium channels.
Choice Xtra Classic: $71.99
HD Monthly: $10.00
DVR Monthly: $10.00
Primary TV: $6.00
Primary TV Free: -6.00
Adv. Rec. DVR. Free: -10.00
Free HD with Automatic Bill Pay: -10.00
For a single-TV environment with no premiums, it's just too damned much. I don't want extra channels. I don't want (or need) to upgrade my equipment.
I've called in trying to get loyalty discounts, even dealing with retentions, and they absolutely will not offer any additional discounts.
As much as I abhor changing providers (or dropping TV entirely), I feel that's my only alternative, or just live with $70+ per month which I feel is too expensive.
Any suggestions for approaches to try?
