Well $7 more for Top 180 now at 49.99 vs. 42.99 Total Choice Plus is already a big difference. I don't think the subscribers with Top 180 are choosing that package for the Encore theme channels. I never watch a thing on those channels. The bottomline is to get channels in D* Total Choice Plus then you have to get E* Top 180 and will cost you $7 more, and depending on D* prices, $10 more after February. If E* is going to reshuffle the packages or add channels, then they should announce it before people start downgrading their packages or switch to Directv or cable.
