I would take the 20x6 deal. Some are getting that as well as free "To Go" but I wasn't interested in that service so it wasn't a consideration for me. As you've read here, the 20x6 deal is generally considered the best deal out there, not including new (DirecTV) customers. I know where you're coming from with regards to budgets and ST full pricing. Last year, I called for the 1st time to get a deal due to the economy issue. :welcome_s to the forum!
