Okay, I have never really figured out these packages. Does the PREMIER package include the lease fee for additional receivers? Or do you still have to pay per box you want to watch tv on?

Is the DVR fee in addition to a mirror/lease fee? (2nd DVR is then 9.99)?

Here is my setup. I have an HR20 in the main room, R15 in the bedroom and a D10 (or some other crappy non-dvr receiver) in the guest room. I'm getting charged $4.99 x 2 and then $5.99. Would premier help cut any of that down?

The difference per month for premier would only be about $20. I think I could sell that to the woman, but if I have to convince her to still pay $9 in leasing fees, I think we'll be staying at our current programming package.

The DVR service is included with the Premier package.

So you would pay $99.99 for the Premier package, DVR service, and first receiver. Then you would pay $4.99x2 for your other two receiver's. Then you would pay $9.99 for the HD package. Your total would be $119.96.

Call'em up and talk with them. You can probably get a deal, so much off a month. Probably get Premier and still pay what you're paying right now.
