Yes you can , it's $72 a month and .50 for addtional outlets.
It's called Basic plus cable.
Or Broadcast basic is $27 per month.
You get the local Networks in HD as well with either package.
Plus it discounts your Internet prices at the same level as digital cable.

Does D* offer discounts on Premium channels occasionally? I used to have Cox before switching last month, and they would often "specials" such as $10 per month HBO for six months.

D* does have specials on the Premiums at times.  Most are 3 month deals though some 6 month ones show up less often.  And there is always a chance of discounts on a per account basis if you call in.  I've found in the past that just telling them you'd like 2 or more Premiums but need the bill to stay down and ask for help with that will usually, but not always, get you some discounts.  Amount of discount varies all over the place from very little to a bunch.  Pretty much a crap shoot.

 

One thing I've noticed with Mediacom cable since I switched is that their Premium deals are generally 12 month deals and usually about 1/2 price.

Good to know. I have all Premiums for free for my first three months, but two months left and I like to keep HBO. Where would I look for the special deals? posted anywhere, they will pop up on my Messages, or only by calling?

Since you're going to have to call to cancel the other Premiums, take that time to ask about 'special's or a 'little help'.

 

When I was with D* I generally had the top package and when I'd call during that first year, I could almost always get $27 off for 6 months if I would keep them all.  Remember that you can't always get them, especially in the first year.  But it doesn't hurt to ask very nicely.

Just as curiosity, is there a current list of 'buy more pay less' for Premiums.  I was diddling around on D*'s website and if you configure the 3 month deal shows $59.00+ for all 4 Premiums.  I think that is just their total without the multi-Premium discount.  If it isn't that, that would make D*'s Premium pricing well out of whack with just about anyone else.
