Just taking a look at verizon.com for Residential customers and choosing "bundled services" the information shows the phone/DSL/DirecTv is about $91 a month. The fine print indicates that is available for new Residential DirecTv subscribers only. No surprise, as I looked at Qwest bundled long ago and they had the same requirement. Apparently if you are already a DirecTv subscriber, the bundle is not available. I could be wrong, but check the verizon site and see what you find there.

There is a bundling discount for current Verizon subscribers. I think it may be as high as $6 per month.

That is correct. I have it. However, it is a major problem getting it collected. Verizon has been very good about crediting my account when the discount doesn't hit properly and D* issued a credit last summer that took me through December.

Last December I got a $72 discount which is supposed to run through June. I am waiting to see what happens on my July bill. So far this isn't working the way it is supposed to work, but as long as I get the discount it is worth the trouble.

Call Directv, and state you are interested in finding out about bundled deals with dsl, they will transfer you to a department where someone will get your particulars, and see what deals are available in your area.

Remember DSL customers have to be within a certain range of the "CO" and Directv really wants you to partner with DSL instead of cable for internet :)

The bundle discount is a couple buck and requires verzion dsl or dial up, directv and phone service. And yes, the discount I was quoted was $2.

FIOS is DA Bomb, it is to DSL and Cable what DSL and Cable are to dial up: 14kbp!

But it may not be available in many areas for a while yet...why don't you see if FIOS is available, and if not for a while...a years contract to get a great deal on DSL and your satellite service together is a great idea too.
