It happens at the end when you click on "Accept These Changes" button to confirm your new programming selection.

I do not remember the exact message, but it says something like please call the directv number (can not remember the reasoning they give to call them).

It is possible that it's just temporary with the website change...

Very strange that the problem happens in one way and not in the other way, don't you think so?

Anyway, we will see if that is a new politic or just a glitch.

Right now I have HBO & Showtime. I hardly watch either but want to keep one.
I tried to remove showtime by unchecking the box, then click continue.
Nothing happens, it just refreshes the screen.
I know you cannot remove premium sports. NFLST, Setanta etc you need to call.
If you try to add anything, no problem, works fine. Go figure.:rolleyes:

Can anyone confirm whether or not you can still switch premium packages online, i.e. swap HBO with Sports pack?

One minor bug of this update is "mirroring status" shows "Not Mirrored". Before the change it was accurate. Call to D* confirmed receivers are mirrored.
