Dish Network offers a 60 channel line-up, how come DirecTv doesn't offer something similar? I'm trying to scale back and don't want to go to Dish Network. Any suggestions?

DirecTV has left Dish to take the chepies.

They used to have a smaller package called Total Choice Select or something like that. Just call retention, tell them you want to go with Dish's cheap package and see if they will offer it to you.

There is a package you can downgrade to, but they only offer it as a retention tool to customers. Just say you will switch if you can't drop down to Total Choice Limited.

There is a Spanish package that contains about 40 English channels for $26.99.
