I am considering a switch to Premier. I now have;

TOTAL CHOICE PLUS Monthly 51.99
HBO, STARZ!, SHOWTIME, Sports Pack 42.00
HD Access Monthly 9.99
DVR Service 5.99

If I understand correctly I will still have to pay for the DVR Service so I will save $3.99 and get Cinemax. Is that correct? Is there something else I get with Premier?

I also have MLB and superfan and I don't think those apply.

Thanks,
Tom.

Only if you had the Premier package before July 12th. After that date if you upgraded to the Premier package or for new customers you have to pay the $5.99 DVR fee.

When I select the option for Premier it says I will have to pay 5.99 for the DVR Service, but says nothing about the HD Access. So, I am pretty sure the DVR fee is not included.

FMR: HR21 - Angstrom 200/205 - 47-LG50

It doesn't say anything about HD Access because HD Access was never part of Premier.

Yeah, I was pretty sure HD Access was not included. Thanks for all the help and answers. It is appreciated. Looks like I will stay where I am at for now.

Thanks,

tom.
