    It is not $2 less. You are looking at the new price of AT180 without locals compared to the old price of AT180 without locals.

    AT180 without locals old price $44.99 (A) ---> $47.99 (B) new price (+$3.00)
    AT180 with locals old price $49.99 (C) ---> $52.99 (D) new price (+$3.00)

    Your comparing C (current price) with B (old price).

    I dropped the locals and put up the old antenna....heck the picture is better. I also dropped the $5.99 sports pack, and dropped down to 120 from 180. So I will be saving about $21.00 monthly. The only shows on 180 I watch is dallas and MASH.....both are available on dvd anyway.

    It seems like the price hike has the old one step forward, two steps back affect on Dish's revenue from a number of customers.
    $3 forward... $5, $10, $20 back.

    I used to have AT120+Locals and HBO+Starz, but dropped Starz and added Cinemax for the 120+HBO+Cinemax+Locals discount bundle. I've saved a few bucks and now have more softcore porn than I know what to do with. :eek2: :eek:

    ah I see, I didn't realize they were now showing it without locals.

    it used to say on the main AT180 page 49.99 and that included the locals. Now the price listing doesn't include the locals. Pretty sneaky

    That stinks...

    maybe I'll just get the AT120 then.

    I just got my big Direct TV Price increase today. A Double increase as when I signed up a year ago I was grandfathered for last years price increase. Please my Free HDTV package ended and my free Showtime also ended,

    Im talking a $25 increase at Direct TV. Dish is not that bad after all.
